Situated within the Peak District National Park near to Three Shires Head, the Barn sits in an elevated position on the side of the Dane Valley, with far reaching views over the surrounding moorland hills.


Far Hole Edge is located within the Peak District National Park, mid-way between the towns of Buxton (5 miles to the north east), Leek (7 miles to the south), Congleton (9 miles to the west) and Macclesfield (6 miles to the north west) all of which offer a wide range of local amenities and shops.

There are many nearby local walks inclusive of the renowned Three Shires Head where the county borders of Cheshire, Derbyshire & Staffordshire meet at an old packhorse bridge and waterfall. Other local walks take in the surrounding moorland and The Roaches which has a network of bridleways, trails and beauty spots to explore.


Travelling from either Bosley or Buxton on the A54 (Congleton to Buxton Road) take the turning alongside the Rose & Crown Pub at Allgreave and proceed for approximately 1.5 miles. Just after passing Midgleygate Farm on the right, take the turning on the left at the bend in the road.

Continue for a further 0.80 of a mile and the barn and land are directly ahead identified by a Whittaker & Biggs ‘For Sale’ sign.

The land and the exterior of the barn may be viewed during daylight hours whilst in possession of a copy of these particulars and which will constitute authority to view. Please ensure that all gates are left as found and latched or tied correctly

The Barn and surrounding land extends in total to approximately 71.36 acres (28.89 hectares) as shown edged red on the attached plan, with access off the unclassified Love Lane and alternatively the A54 Congleton to Buxton Road.

Positioned broadly central to the land is a traditional two-

story lofted stone barn which externally measures approximately 19.00m x 6.0m, together with an adjacent dilapidated single story stone barn measuring externally 6.50m x 2.80m. Both barns offer potential to be converted for a wide range of alternative uses such as a residential dwelling, tourism accommodation or for rural business use, all subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.

To the west of the central tarmac lane, the land rises up steeply and then levels off at the top and comprises of an expansive enclosure of upland grazing on the moorland edge. To the east of the lane and below the barn the land comprises of quality grazing and in part mowable land that borders the River Dane along the eastern boundary.
