Steve's Old Cow Shed, Dale End Farm
Zoe and Steve Blair
About Zoe and Steve Blair
Steve and Zoe purchased Dale End Farm in December 2015, after a whirlwind year including our marriage and later the birth of our daughter. The renovation started in February 2016 with the support of local tradesmen and materials. It was completed in May 2016 after an intensive restoration programme. We have a black poodle dog called Rupert, 3 alpacas called Pedro, Pablo and Alfi.

Why Zoe and Steve Blair chose Bakewell
Dale End farm is an 18th Century period farmhouse situated in the heart of the stunning Peak District within easy reach of Bakewell, Chatsworth house, Haddon Hall, Buxton Opera House, Matlock Bath, Carsington Water and many other attractions. The small holding is nestled in a gentle rolling valley at the tail end of Gratton Dale a National Nature Reserve. It is extremely peaceful and relaxing.

A great short trip with my family
A wonderful cottage, in a delightful area, extremely well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, my grandchildren loved it, wish we could have stayed longer. The alpacas greeted us every morning over the fence, ducks, even a peacock.
Would certainly recommend this special holiday getaway.
A really enjoyable experience.
Lovely property, very tastefully decorated and equipped. Perfect location to explore the surrounding countryside. Extremely peaceful and relaxing. We thoroughly enjoyed all the animals on the farm especially the alpacas and Rupert the dog.
Great accommodation with lovely views
Just arrived home from a relaxing 3 night stay here. Lovely accommodation with plenty of space for 6 of us and our dog. Well equipped kitchen with everything we needed. Large outside space with fence making it dog friendly. Lots of nice walks locally. Hosts welcoming and were there if we needed anything. Would definitely recommend staying here.
Stunning and tranquil
Beautiful, tasteful, clean and perfectly equipped. Have never felt more relaxed. The alpacas, ducks, piglets and 3 day old chicks just added to the beauty of this lovely setting. I have nothing at all negative to say and will definitely return.
Thank you for your kind words it makes it all worth while. Best wishes Zoe and Steve
A lovely place to stay, just a short drive away from Bakewell. The renovation is to a very high standard with everything you’ll need. We would like to return at a later date with a slightly larger group and my wife and I would definitely recommend. Thanks for your help.
Lovely stay in a beautiful location
We had a lovely stay in Zoe and Steve's converted barn/cow shed. The property is perfect for a few days away with plenty of room for a family of 5. Very peaceful location, which feels remote but also close to Bakewell, Matlock and more. Great to meet both Zoe and Steve, family and the chickens, family of ducks and lovely dog.
