Barn
Overbrook Barn is part of a beautiful 18th century farm on the edge of the village of Flash, the highest village in Britain, located in a quiet valley in the south west corner of the Peak District National Park. The long driveway leads to a bridleway on the famous Three Shires Head network providing some of the most spectacular walking and riding in the country. The farm is an alpaca breeding business. Overbrook Barn is surrounded by fields of these beautiful and inquisitive creatures and you're welcome to walk among them. Also on-farm are sheep, pigs, chickens, and ducks: a paradise for city children. You can see more of Overbrook Barn and our farm online by searching for farbrookcottages.

Well equipped and in beautiful surroundings- recommend.
Location is perfect for great walks in the surrounding Peak District- you can just walk out of the door and pick up one of the footpaths. The barn itself was great, had everything that we wanted, beds were really comfy, the whole place was spotless and Gemma and Simon were really helpful with high chairs and cots for our grandchildren. Great gas BBQ and some lovely country pubs that are currently serving outside. Lovely to look out and see the alpacas and to meet them up close and have an informed chat from one of the sons- thank you. Would definitely stay again.

Lovely stay in a very remote part of the Peak District
The Barn is small/cosy, and has everything you need for 6-8 people. Lovely to watch the alpacas feeding each day and a bird feeder is also set up for your viewing pleasure. The log burner is must and gets the place lovely and toasty!

Wonderful converted barn in the Peaks
Our family had an excellent stay in Overbrook Barn. Although the barn is fairly small it is made so cosy and comfortable from the log burner to the huge beds and quality bedding. The owners go over and above with extra touches, like the jug of milk in the fridge and key supplies to get you going, and the quality books everywhere! Thank you Gemma.

Fabulous!
This is a fabulous barn house set in a stunning location. The home is equipped with everything you could ever want including a cozy log burner with enough logs supplied to last us a full week (more available if we had needed them) The beds are extremely comfortable and the four bedrooms are tastefully furnished. We felt at home as soon as we stepped foot into the open plan accommodation. We would highly recommend this property.

Amazing stay
For the first time ever we decided on a Christmas get away with close family, and boy is that what we got!! Gemma, our host had provided a lovely tree and decorations for the girls to decorate it. Gemma met us soon after arrival to ensure all was ok and ask if we needed anything which of course we didn't - the barn had everything you could possibly need. Our dog was well catered for too with throws for the sofas - amazing touch! We were introduced to the alpacas by Gemmas son who answered any questions we had. Fabulous walks up the the3 Shires. An amazing week enjoyed by all, 5 years to 65 years! And yes we will be going back!!

Remote & Comfortable
A beautiful, well equipped cottage/barn in a stunning remote location. We had everything we needed and it didn’t take us long to settle in front of the fire. Ideal for walkers and even better for dog owners!

About the neighborhood
While many people visit us just to enjoy life on the farm there is also an enormous amount to do locally.Countryside enjoyment starts with some of the best walking and cycling in the country on a network of bridleways and footpaths which start on the doorstep. Theres a trekking centre in Flash so you can enjoy the same on four legs. The less experienced can sign up to a week's course of riding lessons at the local school. Get involved in local farm life: watch milking, visit farm shops and the mushroom farm, or try your hand at some alpaca husbandry. This is great badger country: in the evening there's nothing so exciting as watching the dusk exodus of tens of badgers off on their nocturnal rounds. We're surrounded by some of England's most beautiful and exciting country houses. Chatsworth, Haddon Hall, Little Moreton Hall, Biddulph Grange, Gawesworth Hall, Capesthorne Hall, Tatton Park, and Lyme Park are all within 20 to 40 minutes drive. Many have spectacular gardens and children's playgrounds. Chatsworth has an outstanding adventure playground. Buxton Opera House has a 7-day programme of family entertainment as well as some opera. Clonter Opera (the Glyndebourne of the north) is about 30 minutes drive and they will cater for your interval dining if you don't want to take your own picnic. Macclesfield has a great 'classic' cinema. Alton Towers (rides and theme park) is 30 minutes away.Macclesfield was the centre of silk production in the 18th century. Many of the mill buildings are still standing and there are several museums covering this great part of our history. Buxton (10 minutes drive) is a spa town and was built by the Romans, there's lots to see here including some fine Georgian architecture. It's our nearest town and probably has all you'll need. Good restaurants including Thai, Italian, Indian, Chinese, and a Pizza Express. Good parks and playgrounds. There are Waitrose, Morrisons, and Aldi, supermarkets.
