Vicarage Farm Holiday Cottages in the heart of the Peak District offer a warm welcome to visitors in four charming self-catering cottages and farmhouse bed & breakfast accommodation. Built in 1637 and set in six acres of delightfully landscaped private gardens and woodland, they enjoy uninterrupted views over fields, dry stone walls and quiet country lanes. Our newest cottage, Hope Cross, is a fully accessible ground floor cottage designed especially for guests with a range of disabilities from mild/moderate to more severe.
The cottage has two bedrooms. One double with en-suite shower room, and a twin with profiling bed and electric tilting bed with optional guard rail & bed raisers. This room has a large wet-room beside it with a comfort height toilet, grab rails, wheelchair-accessible basin, shower with fixed and hand-held heads, self-propelling shower chair and non-slip flooring. We have a mobile hoist for you to use – just bring your own sling along.
Both bedrooms have wide doors off the lounge area, televisions and ample storage space. Our duvets and pillows are non-feather to help with any allergy issues. The single bedroom has an escape door to the rear patio which is fully integrated with the alarm system.
All the doors have low thresholds and easy-open handles. There is underfloor heating throughout the cottage, zoned in the bedrooms for independent control of each room, with fan heaters and extra cosy blankets for guests who need additional heat.
The large patio behind the cottage enjoys uninterrupted views over fields towards Miller’s Dale – the only thing blocking your view may be the cows! The patio has a dining table with benches and raised beds with a selection of plants chosen for their sensory nature, colour and texture. We have installed wide, level paths and lighting round the entire exterior of the building, giving safe and easy access to all areas from the level car park outside the front door.
