The Old Wine Cellar

The Old Wine Cellar is part of the main Farmhouse known as Amber Mill Farm and one of seven properties within Oakerthorpe Holiday Village.

Originally used as a wine cellar and meat storage as the temperature without heating stays at a constant +1 ˚c - + 2˚c.  


The interior boasts of all original stone work features which are truly amazing. All rooms are below ground level however all have outside windows apart from one. The property was built circa 1790 and is a listed building with mandatory single glazing however the property is still very warm and cosy.

The property consists of a bespoke kitchen with tiled granite worktops and includes fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine with a living /dining room, 2 double bedrooms one with en-suite, twin room, single bedroom and a family bathroom and has the benefit of Freeview TV and Wi-fi.

The property has a standard occupancy of 7 however we are able to sleep 10 by adding additional put up beds in the largest bedrooms. The additional price is £40 per bed/per night.


The property boasts of underfloor heating keeping room temperature at a constant level seemingly setting it apart from the outside world in its own perfect bubble, to be noted that the ceiling height varies throughout the property and in some parts the doors are below standard height.

The property has parking directly outside and is accessed via an external stone staircase.


The village grounds include a playpark with playhouse, designated BBQ area, a floodlit sports area and an enclosed dog walking area along the banks of the River Amber, where the adjacent sluice gates and weir will be seen that served to provide water power to the neighbouring Cotton Mill circa 1790.


Adjacent the main Farmhouse is a walled Orchard which include geese, ducks, bantams, quail, alpacas, goats, rhea (small ostrich), peacocks, sheep and meerkats which is proving very popular with the younger guests especially helping Farmer Vic including fruit picking when in season and feeding and collecting the eggs from the chickens throughout the year except during the Christmas period.

Oakerthorpe Holiday Village aims to provide a truly memorable stay for all its guests with top class accommodation, striving at all times to deliver the very best along with giving a unique and memorable experience however we would like to make you aware that approximately 150 metres from the property is a main railway line which for many, especially our younger visitors as a steam train can often be seen enriches the village experience and it must be said there is minimal sound pollution.

"Please note that the ceiling height varies throughout the property due to its retained character of arched stone ceilings."
