About Whitelee Farm, Peak District

Located in the Peak District and one mile off the beaten track; nestling in a lush green valley by the River Dane, Whitelee Farm offers an extraordinary experience for those seeking to get away from it all. 


Contact with nature is quite literally on your doorstep. Livestock graze on the pastureland surrounding the huts for much of the year; pheasants are in abundance; and the wild bird song is outstanding. The River Dane runs through the farm and is a short walk away. Perfect for a cool paddle; or just to sit and be mesmerised by the movement and the sounds of the flowing water. With a huge networks of footpaths criss crossing the farm including the Peak District Circular walk, this is a very special special space in which to be as active or restive as you desire. 

The farm  and the buildings and land that make it have benefitted over the years from continuous investment. As such there are ongoing conservation projects in Woodland and wild spaces and in traditional features such as stone walling. As such, we are very proud that this  traditional farmstead is well preserved and beautifully presented. The current  conservation projects include working with accredited partners to ensure the protection of ancient woodland and species for many future generations to enjoy.


Living and working in such spectacular scenery is a real privilege for our family and the addition of the 2 Shepherd Huts 'Dane Valley' and 'Hen Cloud' has given the opportunity to share this amazing haven; under very restrictive planning permission. Meaning that a stay in a location like this truly is hard to find.

We have to be honest - if you are looking for full throttle entertainment and wild nights out, then this is not the place for you. If however, you are seeking to mentally switch off, eat when you are hungry and sleep when you are tired then you have found your spot.

We look forward to welcoming you.

And finally...a little bit about us...

3 generations with a passion for agriculture, nature and conservation!​


The shepherd huts are located at the centre of the farm near to the house and farm buildings. As such you will probably see us around at various points; but we try to leave our guests to make the space their own unless we are needed.

All are involved in some way in looking after the huts and our guests - from the children delivering logs to the adults running maintenance jobs.

Living and working in such spectacular scenery is a real privilege for our family and we are delighted to share the experience with others from our 2 Shepherd Huts - 'Dane Valley' and 'Hen Cloud'.
