Alsop Hall

We are not far from this attraction and can provide affordable Holiday Accommodation for Visitors.

Alsop Hall (now Alsop-en-le-Dale Hall) was sold by the creditors of the original Alsop family in the late 1600s, after well over 500 years of continuous occupation. It passed through various hands (including Isaac Borrow of Derby, the Gells of Hopton, the Poles of Nottingham, the Beresfords and Brownsons, and others). During this period it was primarily a farm house rather than a principle seat.

In the 1880s Sir Henry Allsopp bought the Estate and tried to revive the title Lord Alsop of Alsop. He failed to demonstrate his descent from the original Alsop family. His principal seat was at Hindlip and eventually had to be content with the title Baron Hindlip of Hindlip and of Alsop-en-le-Dale when his peerage was conferred. I understand but have no confirmation of this, that he used it as a shooting lodge. He died in 1887.

Knockerdown Farm is nestled in the Derbyshire countryside, in the heart of the Peak District, with easy access to Alsop Hall.

A collection of 18 self catered holiday cottages or varying sizes will be perfect for you and your family and friends during your visit. Enjoy the countryside of England whilst still being in easy reach of Derbyshire's fantastic locations.
