Throwley Hall Farm is a Georgian built farmhouse conveniently situated in the quiet countryside near to the beautiful Manifold Valley and Dovedale. Superb scenery and walking country are right on the doorstep, and attractions such as Alton Towers are a short journey away.

The farm stands on a spur overlooking the Manifold Valley. This is one of the most famous rivers of the Peak District and carves a spectacular deep valley with numerous rocky crags, a sight which is matched locally only by Dovedale - just a few miles away.

The farm is a working beef cattle farm and has a long history - next door to the farmhouse stand the ruins of Throwley Hall, a 16th century manor house.

The farm specialises in pedigree Charolais cattle, which graze in the fields surrounding the farm, and on the hillside overlooking the Manifold valley.

Blue John Cavern
Blue John Cavern

The Blue John Cavern in the Peak District is a series of caverns considered to be the finest range in Great Britain. Our Cavern Tours are of immense educational interest showing clearly how the caverns are formed in limestone strata and how the limestone itself had much earlier been formed by the deposits on the floors of great oceans which have long since receded, as the fossilised remains of marine animals now show.
