"These are Holiday Cottages at their best; beautiful, luxurious, peaceful, rural, romantic, charming and everything was relaxed - a secret and private getaway in a perfect location" Best of Britain Sunday Times Travel Supplement
"There are very few places that enable you to get together as a family and encorporate a gathering at the same time with enough space to dissappear if you would like to or have enough room to all be together. That is why Lower Damgate Farm is a perfect setting for any occasion and I will certainly be back for a longer stay". Mark HF - The Telegraph Newspaper
"There is less space in the Tardis - very pleasantly surprised with the layout and ambiance of this property" Nigel Howarth - Celebrity Chef
"I slept in a bed I didnt want to get out of it was so comfy" - Nadia C - Travel Writer
For over 400 years Lower Damgate Farm (Formally Damgate) has stood here. Before we purchased it in 1996 the farmhouse had been little used for 40 years. It was in a sad state and over the years we have sympatheticaly restored it. Our renovations have retained many of the original features and the house that stands here today is as close to the original 16th Century period property that was rebuilt over 400 years ago. It would be lovely to go back in time and see what it looked like when the Vikings and Romans occupied this site. If you stay here we really hope you enjoy the area and our family home. We are happy to share it with you and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
In 1999 when we converted the old unused farm buildings into Holiday accomodation, we used local materials and items sourced with care and thoughfulness. The finish is as original and authentic as possible and you will see the craftmanship and attention to detail if you visit. We now provide luxury 4 star holiday accomodation as well as a space for rural retreats, weddings and events all set within the working structure of our 20 acre smallholding. We run this as a family business and as well as trying to keep up to date with organic farming we are also dedicated to providing a loving lifelong home to the rescued animals on our farm.
Our Farm is easily accessable and surrounded by stunning scenery, the farm is situated in the center of England near Ilam in the Peak District National Park and nestled between the beautiful Rivers of Dovedale and the Manifold Valley. We are surrounded by National Trust land, with excellent local walks, outdoor activities, villages and places of interest it is a wonderful place in which to explore and base your holiday or event.
As well as the holiday cottages the farm has been host to many weddings and charitable events over the years. The Farm barn has been converted to accomodate 50-120 guests and you can find details of this on our wedding page
