This stunning converted farm building with all the conveniences of modern living, including a spacious open-plan living area set all on one level, making this a property with increased accessibility.
Situated in the heart of the Peak District National Park, this beautiful property is perfect for a couple who want to explore the stunning Derbyshire countryside. Immerse yourselves in the rural tranquillity of this converted farm building (as the name suggests), but rest assured that the village shop, tearoom and pub of Ashford-in-the Water are only a few hundred metres away. The historic village, famous for its medieval Sheepwash Bridge, occupies a fantastic central location, allowing guests to explore the whole national park, including the dramatic Dark Peak in the north and the limestone plateaus of the White Peak to the south.
In the grounds of the farmhouse, a low dry-stone wall surrounds the traditional stone property. On entering, you’ll find yourselves in the bright and airy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner where vaulted ceilings add to the sense of space. The lounge has comfy seating for relaxing, there is ample room at the table for eating or poring over a map whilst you plan the next adventure, and the kitchen is well equipped. On the same floor, there is a double bedroom with gorgeous countryside views and a shower room. Outside, a private patio offers a lovely spot for al fresco dining against a backdrop of unbridled countryside.
Whatever your sport, there will be something for you nearby, with walking and cycling routes on your doorstep, canoeing on the River Wye and climbing and caving in nearby Castleton (12.5 miles). The biggest town in the national park, Bakewell, which is also famous for its pudding, is only 1.5 miles away and is the start of the Monsal Trail, an 8.5-mile traffic-free walking route. If you’re in need of a ‘rest day’, enjoy a less strenuous stroll at Chatsworth House (5 miles) or wander around spa town Buxton (11 miles).
