Opened in May 2008, Fairthorn is situated in extensive grounds within a historic village tucked between Sheffield and the Peak District. Each apartment includes two bedrooms.

“Intelligent sensors” have been installed to keep you safe on the staircases and in all the communal areas. There’s a lift and 24-hour emergency call system together with a communal buggy store with power points to allow for re-charging of buggies.
