The property benefits from far reaching views over the countryside, however, it also benefits from easy access onto the A6 and the A623 providing quick access to the market towns of Bakewell (9 miles) and Buxton (6.5 miles).
We understand that the vendors carried out the conversion of the farm buildings and have occupied the property for 20 years and it has therefore not been offered to the market.
