Holmes Farm Reapsmoor, Longnor, Buxton SK17 0LG
Holmes Farm is situated in a popular location in a rural setting between the villages of Longnor and Warslow, situated within the Peak District National Park. Nearby villages provide a range of basic amenities including a primary school, Church, village hall and a public house and village shops within 2 miles. The market towns of Bakewell, Buxton and Leek have an extensive range of facilities including high street shops, doctor’s surgery, public houses, primary and secondary schools, supermarkets and fuel stations. There are many nearby local walks, bridleways, trails and beauty spots in the surrounding area with the Peak District National Park close by, excellent for those who enjoy the outdoors and with equestrian interests. The property benefits from far reaching views over the countryside, however, it also benefits from good access onto the B5053 providing quick access to the market towns of Bakewell (11.5 miles), Leek (9 miles), Buxton (9 miles) and Ashbourne (12.8miles).
We understand that the vendors have owned the property for nearly 8 years and have carried out extensive conversion works on the farm buildings to create three beautifully finished holiday lets which opened for bookings in 2019.
From the centre of Longnor, head south along the B5053 towards Warslow. Continue out of the village for approximately two miles and just before a set of cross road, turn left by Fox Country Furniture onto the lane which leads down to the property.
