Unique £1.94m Peak District farm put up for sale for first time in 80 years

A Peak District farm which has been in the same family for four generations is being sold for the first time in 80 years with a guide price of £1.94 million.

Friday, 22nd October 2021, 10:46 am

Peaslows Farm and Farmhouse, in the rural village of Sparrowpit, near Buxton, is around 169 acres and, until recently, was the base of a dairy unit run by the father and son team of Winston and John Cartledge.

The farm, which is within an hour’s drive from Sheffield, had a 230 head dairy herd producing an average of 12,500 litres and about 370 animals were housed on the farm. John has moved to Somerset to expand into different areas of farming, taking the dairy herd with him.

He said: ‘’I will miss working everyday surrounded by the amazing landscape that the Peak District boasts. I will also miss being so close to two active livestock markets. I just hope the future owner gets as much pleasure from working at Peaslows as my family has over the last 80 years.”
