As you can see the buildings are set in a private courtyard. There is our farmhouse, the large gardens, ample car parking, and Duck Pond View.

We are surrounded by the beautiful Derbyshire countryside, with our own 40 acre farm one side of the road, and another 50 acres of grazing on the other. Quiet, but not isolated, as our nearest neighbours are about 100 yards away, and the Puss in Boots is just a five minute walk (see local pubs).

The Ecclesbourne valley runs down from Wirksworth to Duffield and to my mind is one of the loveliest valleys in Derbyshire. Not the rugged splendour of the high peak, but very gentle, and much better suited to the way we feel now that we have retired. (Apart from the farm, obviously, and the holiday flat!)

There is a road up the ridge on one side of the valley that goes up to Alport Heights from where it is reputed that, on a clear day, you can see seven counties.

Nestled into one side of this valley are Knowle Farm, and Duck Pond View.
