Outside the gardens have been beautifully landscaped with specimen trees and stone flagged terracing to the full width of the front and a tree-lined avenue leads to a gated terrace. There is also an extensive rear courtyard and a good range of outbuildings including a very large barn. The house comes with 34 acres of pastureland and moorland.

Blackshaw Farm stands in a superb elevated position in the Derbyshire hills. At the foot of the valley two miles away is the popular village of Hayfield, often regarded as ‘The gateway to the Peak District’, which provides a good range of day-to-day amenities and Manchester is just sixteen miles.
