Oker Farm

A stone’s throw from the popular spa town of Matlock, guests can relax in the sumptuous hot tub that overlooks 40 acres of picturesque English countryside. Oker Farm embodies the charm of a stunning stone farmhouse which can be enjoyed by 10 + 2 guests across 5 stunning bedroom suites.

This farmhouse retreat is the perfect location to relax and socialise with friends and family, with the home boasting, a games lounge with pool table, separate cosy snug, an outdoor summer house with a foosball table, and beautifully mature gardens to explore.

The Home

As you step through the traditional farm doors, you’re welcomed into the heart of this home, being a spacious kitchen and dining area. It’s exquisitely crafted with a bespoke, handmade kitchen by Mark Wilkinson, oak flooring throughout and a striking central island crafted from natural granite. Every detail has been carefully considered, offering a fully equipped space featuring an Aga complete with two cooking and two warming chambers, twin hot plates, and a warming plate. Complementing this is a Miele electric oven and microwave.

The kitchen also houses a substantial Sub-Zero fridge freezer equipped with a water purifier and ice machine, alongside a dedicated Sub-Zero wine cooler, perfect for a variety of wines and champagnes. For coffee enthusiasts, a Sage Nespresso Vertuo coffee machine, we provide a small number of coffee pods but recommend bringing your own. Two cafetières are also thoughtfully provided to satisfy your coffee cravings!

Adjacent to the kitchen, the spacious dining room awaits, furnished with a bespoke oak dining table comfortably seating ten. The large pantry provides lots of storage with shelving and drawers.

The Snug

Ascend the steps from the kitchen to discover the snug, a cosy space filled with natural light and captivating views of the garden and countryside through expansive windows and patio doors. A beautiful natural stone fireplace, adorned with a log burner, stands as the focal point, providing warmth and charm during cooler months.

Sink into plush seating, featuring a large corner sofa and additional leather chairs, while immersing yourself in entertainment offered by the 55 inch wall-mounted smart TV. As the patio doors open onto the rear patio, bask in the tranquillity of warm, sunlit evenings. The snug boasts expansive high ceilings with traditional wooden beams, encompassing the original charm of the farmhouse.

Games Lounge

The games lounge, right beside the kitchen diner, is perfect for guests of all ages. Inside, you’ll discover the luxurious Olhausen Waterfall pool table, accompanied by cosy seating and a 55-inch flat-screen TV, offering modern comfort and fun for everyone!
