Somewhere very special…
A Quintessentially English Experience,
Harrop Fold Farm, home of the Stevenson Family, has been sympathetically restored in the spirit of the original 17th Century buildings and offers bed & breakfast and self-catering accommodation along with a suite.
Each room has been individually designed to make your stay welcoming and comfortable. Antique beds, old oak beams, original paintings on the walls and goodies on your welcome tray will help you unwind. At bedtime fluffy robes, down duvets and pillows ensure a good night’s sleep ready for a superb Aga cooked breakfast of your choice.
We pride ourselves in our delicious choices of foods, which are served using the finest local ingredients, our own free-range eggs and homemade preserves.
Harrop Fold is set within its own 20 acres of land and visitors are welcome to walk along the many footpaths that cross the property. A footpath from the door reaches the Gritstone Trail. There are two lovely brooks – Mellow Brook and Harrop Brook, which are visited by a great variety of wildlife, and there is a huge diversity of bird life to be seen around the farm.
Harrop Fold Farm is a smallholding nestling in a wooded gritstone valley on the western side of the Peak District National Park and has magnificent views over the Cheshire Plain to the Welsh Mountains. It has a courtyard of attractive traditional stone buildings that are of architectural and archaeological interest and there is evidence of a Roman road passing through. Archives also suggest a tannery at Harrop Fold Farm was used by Bonnie Prince Charlie as he made his way to Derby to attempt to seize the English crown.
