  • For those who love being near water enjoy the tranquillity of the lake situated on the grounds with on site fishing
  • Relax in this spacious, stylish, light and airy detached property with large private garden
  • Located a short drive from the Peak District and from elegant Ashbourne
Property code: 76519

Stay in this quirky building, converted sympathetically but with a contemporary fresh look, providing comfort along with everything you need for a relaxing want-for-nothing stay.

The central location of the farm gives excellent access to local shops, visitor attractions, and motorway connections. Take a trip to Alton Towers, Hansons Auctioneers, Uttoxeter Racecourse, Castle Donington, or enjoy a historical day out exploring the National Trust properties such as Kedleston, Sudbury, and Calke Abbey. The market town of Ashbourne is within driving distance and with its narrow-cobbled alleys, it is something of a haven for antique hunters, boasting superb shops, as well as a range of good pubs and restaurants, also within a short drive is The National Arboretum museum. Chatsworth Estate and Gardens is slightly further afield along the scenic route, and the farm shop is a must visit to stock up on local goodies.

The accommodation, which is all located on one level, welcomes you into the spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner which is flooded by light through the multiple windows. Put your feet up on the comfortable sofas and relax infront of the electric effect wood burner whilst enjoying the views over the nearby fields, it’s so enchanting you might not find the time to watch the Smart TV. Cook a special meal for loved ones in the kitchen which offers an electric oven and hob, tall standing fridge-freezer, air fryer, microwave, washer/dryer and dishwasher, while the nearby dining table offers a pleasant spot to sit and enjoy a meal with loved ones. The master bedroom offers a king-size bed with TV and pretty fabrics that decorate the room and also benefits from an en-suite shower room and WC. The second bedroom has a super-king-size bed and also has a TV. Bring along some bubble bath to enjoy a well-deserved soak in the bathroom with shower over bath and WC.

Outside there is a lovely enclosed veranda overlooking the surrounding gardens and countryside with seating, a great space to enjoy a glass of something chilled on a summers evening. The five-acre lake is available for guests to use for nature watching and coarse fishing only, bream, roach, tench, perch and pike. There is ample off-road parking available.
