About penny molyneux

Our family consists of myself, Penny, my husband, Stephen, my three children, Olivia (19), Harry (18),Toby (7)

We bought Brosterfield Farm in 2008 and the farm was in much need of some TLC. This obviously is an understatement when you look at the photographs of our renovation. We have enjoyed renovating the farm and watching it become the beautiful property it is now!

penny molyneux purchased this cottage in 2009

Why penny molyneux chose Foolow

Brosterfield Farm is simply such a beautiful location but yet only a few mins from eveyrthing you need. We fell in love with Brosterfield for it natural beauty, views and the sunsets are amazing from the main farmhouse.

Awesome Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Old Dairy for 12 nights and enjoyed every second. The place is a great base for country living and a great retreat after spending a day in Chesterfield and Sheffield.

Penny is AWESOME!!!! she had a welcome package of supplies waiting for us. The whole experience was great from start to finish.

The pub is a 10 minute walk from door to door and they server great food - pack your stretchy pants when you visit as the portions are huge.

If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing place to stay THIS IS IT!!!

We will certainly be staying here again

Thank you Penny

Special interest holidays - organised through the farm


We have a number of different chefs, all of whom have brilliant feedback and can do anything from large ready made food in the fridge to a full dinner party.    


Personal Sanctuary is a mobile massage & beauty therapists that bring the luxury spa to the farm.  They offer organic and an indulgent service with tailor-made treatment packages to suit your guests.


During your stay here why not try something new, visit some ‘out of the way’ places, push your comfort zone or just relax and enjoy the very best the National Park can offer, such as:

Abseiling, Rock Climbing, Hill Walking, Caving

We supply experienced professional activity guides and all the technical equipment you’ll need for a day of adventure... so all you need to do is turn up!

We cater for Family Days; Hen/Stag Parties, Corporate Days/Stays.


We have teamed up with a superb cocktail and bar company that can offer the following 2 options:

Create your own cocktail experience

A fabulous interactive create your own cocktail making experience.  This starts with cocktails on arrival followed by an introduction to cocktails and the equipment used to make them. Your professional cocktail bartender will then split the room into two (or more) teams and invite guests up to the bar and instruct them how to make some well known classics and various methods of making cocktails. Whilst the demonstration is in motion guests will be able to help themselves to cocktail top ups which will be available in jugs on their team tables. Once everyone has had a go at making cocktails the teams will then be tasked with creating their own fabulous cocktail creation! The team will then select their strongest cocktail maker, who (under the instruction of their team leader) will make their deliciously designed drink on the bar for everyone to see. Your mixologist will then taste all competition cocktails and award a prize to the winning team (usually something bubbly).

Cocktail bartender Hire

Hire a cocktail bartender for 3hrs of cocktail service.  If you wish for go for this option you can choose from the cocktail compendium.  We will then send you a recommended shopping list based on the number of guests and hours of service.


We can arrange for a hot tub to be delivered for a charge for the whole weekend.

Please do let me know if I can be of any further help or you would like to talk through the house.
