Details for holiday farmhouse The Farmhouse Basement, 4 Bedrooms, Sleeps 10, 2 Bathrooms

The Basement Apartment is part of the main Farmhouse known as Amber Mill Farm. The property was built circa 1790 and is grade 2 listed with the basement being a magnificent example of stone masonry work achieved in that period, even more amazing when you consider that all the construction would have been done without any type of mechanical help that we have come to take for granted in today's high tech construction age.

The basement apartment consist of living room/dinging room, 2 double bedrooms, 2 single bedrooms, en-suite to master double bedroom and a family bathroom.

All of the bedroom have outside windows except for 1 single bedroom making it feel quite light and airy.

Full Sky TV package and wireless internet access.

The heating of the property is all underfloor keeping it at a constant level making it truly a venue for a really memorable stay.

Access to the children s play park and picnic area is no further than 20 meters from the apartment.

Amazing , beautiful and friendly place

  • 5 of 5

Pictures dose not give this place justices- stayed in the Elliot house and the dairy, both places were lovely clean tidy everything's is in there that you need. Farmer Vic was soo friendly and was really good if we ever needed him for a query got back to us asap. Very kid friendly the kids loved helping farmer Vic out feeding the animals and collecting the eggs! Kids were always entertained aswell as the adults with the hot tub! Literally couldn't ask for a better place to stay - highly recommend it . Defiantly will be staying there again.

Really interesting basement apartment with lots of character

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at Oakerthorpe, made even better by farmer Vic's egg collecting and and animal feeding experience which the kids loved - they were thrilled by the certificate which arrived in the post after our stay. The basement apartment was a good size for our weekend away and in a great location for Matlock Bath. The apartment was well equipped with two fridges. I was fascinated by the history of the place as the stone walls were an incredible feature - definitely a property with character at a very reasonable price.

A lovely property in a very pretty part of the world.

  • 4 of 5

We had a really relaxing break in the basement apartment over Easter weekend. The accommodation is well equipped and furnished to a high standard throughout. The visit was made even more special when the children were taken by Farmer Vic to collect the eggs and feed the farm animals. My daughters even got to hold a quail! Thank you for a lovely stay.
