Open all year round, Rowsley Hall Farm is a 200 acre working beef and sheep farm, providing comfortable and friendly bed and breakfast accommodation in one of the most beautiful and interesting areas of the Derbyshire Peak District. Rowsley Hall Farm has been in the Caudwell family for generations and is run today by Carole Caudwell (Miss Davy to old Elphinians!). The Caudwell name is well known and respected in the area, and Caudwell's Mill, a Grade II listed historic flour mill is part of the Caudwell family heritage. Now run as a museum with a Gift Shop and cafe, it's well worth a visit during your stay.
