Dannah Farm Country House

Luxury boutique accommodation, the perfect base for your romantic break in the Peak District

Recently awarded, once again, The prestigious 5 Star Gold Award for guest accommodation,  Dannah is so much more than a luxury B&B.

Still a working Chatsworth Farm, we have spared no expense in converting the traditional Georgian farmhouse and adjoining stone buildings into luxurious boutique accommodation.

Breakfast is, of course, included, featuring locally sourced produce. Choice is everything, whether you fancy a perfectly poached egg on toast, or a full English with award winning black pudding. Alternatively, a full vegetarian feast may be your tipple? All are cooked to order, along with a range of fruits, cereals, yoghurts and juices. Sample a Dannah breakfast and see why we have been awarded The AA Breakfast Award!

Relish a romantic weekend in one of our stunning suites…..super king beds, double jacuzzi baths, power showers, fresh coffee makers….the list goes on! Explore and discover this lovely area, enjoy a re-union with family and friends, or simply relax with your loved one and enjoy a well earned break from the hectic world we live in.

So, whether your search is for a Peak District break with hot tub, romantic night away with private hot tub, luxury hotel in the Peak District or a luxurious Country cottage….. look no further!

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The nightmare continues…..and as by now everyone is aware, all hospitality is locked down until the 2nd December.

Fingers well and truly crossed though that we will once again to be able to welcome guests to Dannah Farm and our two cottages from early next month. Of course, the wonderful possibility of a vaccine being available in the near future must help us all look forward eventually to normality returning.

However, we have been informed by MasterCancel that any bookings taken during lockdown for stays which may be impacted by an extension to the lockdown period will not be covered by the policy. For example if a booking is made for – say – the 10th December and the lockdown is extended, that booking would not be covered. If this were the case then we would, of course hold over any monies paid towards a future booking with us.
