About David Bacon
Church Farm Fritchley is a family owned house, run by David and Denise Bacon and family. The property which was the family home for over 30 years is now used as a holiday home. We live only 30 mins away and are always on hand to help guests with anything they might need. As a small family business, it is really important to us that all our guests have a great holiday at Church Farm and take home many happy memories.
Why David Bacon chose Belper
Church Farm Fritchley was our family home in the small rural village of Fritchley. Our son flew the nest and we had to move for work reasons but could not bear to part with it so we have renovated this property to let the farmhouse for holiday accommodation due to its location on the edge of the Peak District and other local attractions, yet still having great access from the M1. As our once family home it is really important to us that our guests have a very enjoyable stay in Church Farm Fritchley.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
What makes Church Farm Fritchley special is the large amount of space provided for guests inside and outside, with beautiful rural views across the Derbyshire countryside from the rear garden, which also offers a BBQ and outdoor furniture for al fresco dining. Whilst still having many of its original features. the property has modern conveniences, extremely comfortable beds, a fully equipped kitchen, and provides direct access to the wonderful countryside and so many interesting places to visit, right from the front door.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.

Absolutely lovely cottage! Loved our stay here. A perfect family getaway.
The property is wonderful. Every room has its own unique character. All the beds were so comfy and it was really easy to make it warm and homely for the stay. 6 adults, a baby and dogs absolutely loved it also.

Beautiful property and lovely owners!
We had a wonderful early Christmas celebration here-with accompanying snow storm. The house is very comfortable and has everything you could possibly need from games to dog bowls, and everything in between. It's also a great location with two local pubs and plenty of Derbyshire walks on the door step. The owners couldn't have been more helpful when we couldn't get home because of the snow-allowing is to stay and extra night. Very generous. Thank you!!
Thanks you for your great review Ellena. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and that the snow scenes outside added to your enjoyment.Thank you for looking after our home and leaving it so clean and tidy.
You were most welcome to stay the extra night as we would never let you travel if the weather makes your journey unsafe.
We hope you can stay with us again, we would always welcome you back at any time in the future.

Excellent base for exploring Derbyshire
The house is well appointed with everything you need for a weeks stay, we were 3 couples and a grandchild.
The house has plenty of room and allows everyone to congregate in the Lounge diner but also has another smaller lounge .The area is really rich to explore , we walked up to Crich , which has small supermarket , butchers , nice cafe and pub . Further up the road you get to the the Tower a war memorial with great views. The Tram museum was a good visit and very close . The Derwent Valley nearby is a World Heritage site and the massive mills with retail , museums and original machinery at Masson are a must . At the bottom of the Valley Cromford Canal is a nice walk and Cromford Village,Holloway, Matlock Bath and Belper are worth a visit .
Thank you so much for your brilliant review Nick. We are really pleased you enjoyed your holiday with us and had great time exploring the local area. Also thank you for being such lovely guests, we really appreciate you looking after our home so well and leaving it so clean and tidy. It absolutely goes without saying that we would welcome you back at any time in the future.
