The house is subject to an Agricultural Occupancy Condition.


Trogues Farm is situated in a stunning rural location just outside the village of Wensley and is also near to the village of Winster. The popular villages are both short distances away having a range of basic amenities including a church, public houses, post office, village shop and primary schools. The market towns of Bakewell and Matlock offer a wider range of facilities including supermarkets, high street shops, restaurants and secondary schools. There are many nearby local walks and bridleways throughout the Peak Park. The village has rural countryside surrounding, however benefits from access onto main roads leading to the A6 within 2 miles and the A5012 and A515 leading to the surrounding market towns of Bakewell (7 miles), Chesterfield (11 miles) and Matlock (4 miles) and the cities of Derby (21 miles), Nottingham (29 miles) and Sheffield (23 miles) away.


We understand the vendor has occupied the farm for the past 15 years, therefore the farm has not been offered onto the market for some time. The farmhouse was built in the early 1980’s and the present owners have modernised the property. The sale arises due to current owners downsizing.


From Matlock, head north out of the town along the A6 towards Darley Dale and Bakewell. Continue forward for approximately 2 miles and turn left onto Old Road towards Darley Bridge. Continue to the end of the road and turn left onto B5057 towards Darley Bridge. Follow the road over the bridge into Darley Bridge, and continue up the hill out of the village following the road to the village of Wensley. Continue through Wensley and out of the village. After the village, the Farm will be found on the left hand side and indicated by our For Sale board being the first property on the left.
