Yeldersley Old Hall Farm is a working dairy farm with pedigree Holstein/Friesian cows and calves. It has 230 acres of land and the land has been farmed by our family since 1954.

Yeldersley Old Hall is situated in peaceful surroundings on the outskirts of Bradley village some three miles from the market town of Ashbourne. Built in the early 17th Century the farmhouse and cottages are now Grade II Listed.

History suggests that Catherine Pegge, probably the first of King Charles II's mistresses once lived at Yeldersley Old Hall. In 1657 Catherine bore Charles a son and the child was named Charles FitzCharles. Fitz is the traditional prefix to a child born to a royal father out of wedlock. The following year a daughter was born and christened Catherine, after her mother.

Situated in pleasant, rural peaceful surroundings this is a welcoming place to relax and explore the wonders and history of Derbyshire and the Peak District.

Does anyone have an image of Catherine Pegge? If so please do get in touch. We cannot find a portrait of her!
