Blackclough Farmhouse has just undergone a full refurb with brand new luxury bathrooms, carpets, furniture and furnished with wood burning stoves, a plentiful supply of logs and coal and electric storeage heaters. The local shop/cafe at Flash Bar Stores has excellent food, web-cam and WIFI and The Knights Table, a traditional peak district pub is less than a mile away, with WIFI as well as great food and local beers!
4 bedrooms, 1 bathroom. Sleeps nine people.
Blackclough Barn is linked internally to the farmhouse and was renovated in order to provide ancillary accommodation to the house, whilst retaining many of the original features of one of oldest sheep farms in the locality. Built from local stone, quarried closeby, the walls hold the heat. The smaller upstairs bedroom with its original fireplace was probably the earliest part of Blackclough; the shepherd's accommodation above the livestock.
The Link Room joining the Farmhouse has a heated boot room and main entrance for both the Farmhouse and the Barn with a shared washing machine and dryer and its own door/window looking out over the views below
Two large sycamore trees tower over Blackclough, the highest trees visible on the landscape from miles away.
The two sheltered outside tables with seating (cushions in shed) and a BBQ offers a unique, peaceful yet dramatic rural view of the Peak District, with Derbyshire, Cheshire and Staffordshire all in sight. It is less than a mile from the pack horse bridges of Three Shire Heads.
The shed, behind the house houses the BBQ and five mountain bikes so you can go mountain biking in the Peak District. They are available to rent and there is an outdoor hose for bike cleaning.
The well at the end of the property, was still being used into the 1940's for water supply and washing etch. In adjacent fields owned by Derby Estate, there's evidence of old coal mining shafts, exiting into the stream below. The actual Black Clough (Clough is the northern English word meaning narrow valley or ravine) is to the left, flowing down towards the River Dane.
Blackclough is located within an SSSI (Sites of Special Scientific Interest) which gives legal protection to the best sites for wildlife and geology in England. There are unique bird watching opportunities, flora include the cotton grass and vast areas of purple heather in August.
