About Mam Farm

Hidden away in a secluded spot with incredible views of the Peak District, this cosy stone cottage is the perfect base for an outdoor adventure.

You’ll love this pretty stone-built farmhouse with its ivy covered exterior and glorious setting. The cottage nestles beneath Mam Tor, with views over the stunning Hope Valley. Lose yourself in this truly wonderful corner of the Peak District where you can head out on walks from the door. 

Sleeping 4, Mam Farm is great for either friends or family groups. Open the door to the bootroom (perfect for kicking off boots and jackets) and then you’ll find yourselves in the comfortable kitchen diner. The cosy sitting room with its log burner is also on the ground floor, with views over the valley. Upstairs you’ll discover the two bedrooms (one double and one twin) and then two bathrooms, the main one with a shower over the P-shaped bath and the other with a walk-in shower. Outside, the garden adjoins farmland where sheep and cattle graze (separated by a post and rail fence). There’s also an area to sit and enjoy a meal outdoors, or a glass of wine at the end of the day whilst soaking up the peace and quiet and the glorious landscape.

Whether you’re an outdoor enthusiast or just in need of some relaxing time out in the country, a stay in this fabulous spot at the foot of the so-called ‘Shivering Mountain’ will undoubtedly lift your spirits. You’ll be close to the historic village of Castleton, famous for the semi-precious ‘Blue John’ stone and home to some very impressive caverns. You can either nip to the village by car, or take a leisurely stroll there, and you should find everything you need from sweet little shops to places to eat. And with walks from the door too, we guarantee you’ll love this wonderful little place and the whole area it sits in.

This part of the Peak District with its gorgeous villages and jaw-dropping views is popular with everyone, but especially walkers, and cavers, who come for the fascinating network of underground caverns. You you can even take a boat trip through the cavern at Speedwell. Nearby Edale (where you’ll find the lovely Penny Pot Cafe) is also the home of the start of the Pennine Way, which at 268 miles long stretches all the way to Northumberland. Edale is also where you’ll find the Moorlands Visitor Centre. There are also great views from the ruins of Peveril Castle (run by English Heritage) or head out to Kinder or the wider Dark Peak area to explore more of the area’s highlights.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
