Farditch Farm

Farditch Farm is a beautifully presented site in the quiet village of Chelmorton. Each accommodation features sturdy oak furniture, a shaker-style kitchen with white goods, flatscreen TVs, and all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay. Located near to the bustling spa town of Buxton, you’ll have plenty to see and do as you explore the area. Plus, you benefit from stunning natural views.

We currently have 2 cottages available at Farditch Farm this Father’s Day; Pippenwell and Cheedale. Pippenwell is a 3 bedroom cottage that sleeps up to 6 people, making it ideal for a family weekend away. Cheedale is a 1 bedroom cottage that sleeps just 2, which means you can send dad on a romantic weekend away to enjoy the countryside.

Both cottages are dog-friendly and pets stay free.

Endmoor Farm

Endmoor Farm is a complex of 6 immaculate holiday cottages near the market town of Bakewell. Each luxury lodging has 1 – 2 bedrooms and all are dog-friendly with pets getting a free pass. Like the cottages at Farditch Farm, you can expect quality oak furnishings, a shaker-style kitchen with white goods, flatscreen TVs and a plethora of extra amenities for your convenience.

At the minute, we have availability at our Rakes, Moor and Derby cottages. Rakes is a 2 bedroom cottage sleeping up to 4 people and the other two are 1 bedroom cottages, sleeping up to 2 people. And you can rest assured that each gives you stunning views of the surrounding countryside. What’s more, Endmoor Farm is in the perfect location to explore the local area, with excellent walking and cycling paths right on your doorstep.

The history of Father’s Day

Father’s Day has a bit of a funny backstory. Like Mother’s Day, it had humble beginnings – a young girl wanting a day to honour her father – and both dates have religious roots. However, Father’s Day took quite a bit longer to become officially recognised than Mother’s Day did.

The idea for a ‘Fathers Day’ was first celebrated in 1910. It didn’t really pick up any traction, though, until 1938 when the National Council for the Promotion of Father’s Day (made up entirely of mens’ clothing companies) decided to start promoting it. And even then, it wasn’t legally recognised until 1972, which is when it finally became a permanent holiday.

So, it took just over seven decades for Father’s Day as we know it to finally be a thing. What a history!
