Ball Cross Farmhouse, Chatsworth Estate Holiday Cottages

Ball Cross Farmhouse dates back to 1688 and was once the heart of a working family farm. It has been completely renovated incorporating a wealth of period charm with a contemporary twist.

Ball Cross Farmhouse is just a mile from the historic market town of Bakewell in the heart of the stunning Peak National Park and just two miles from the magnificent Chatsworth House, Gardens and Adventure Playground.

The Farmhouse is ideally located to explore the beautiful scenery all around, with some great walking, cycling trails (including the fabulous Monsal Trail ideal for cycling with children) and bridleways close to the property. Accessible bikes are available to hire at a number of locations on the trails, with a Boma 7 'all-terrain wheelchair available to hire from Parsley Hay.
