Location and Directions

From the South

Take the A515 north from Ashbourne towards Buxton. After 1 mile turn left (‘Ilam Thorpe Dovedale’). Continue 5 miles to Ilam, at T junction turn right. Continue 1 mile up steep hill (Ilam Moor Lane). When hill levels out on top, Beechenhill is first on the left down farm drive. The farm name is in the stone wall. There are reflectors in the wall that are visible at night.

If you are using a Sat Nav put in ‘Ilam Moor Lane’.

If you use our postcode DE62BD, it stretches for about a mile, so when your Sat Nav tells you that you have reached your destination (there is a sign on the right) keep going for another half a mile and we are the next farm drive on the left.
