in the area
We are on the doorstep of the Peak District National Park and surrounded by local attractions for guests to explore.
Whether you would like try wind surfing on Carsington or a less energetic stole through historic Ashbourne, we are centrally located for many attractions.
Not only do we have a great view of Carsington Water, we are only 3 miles from the Ashbourne town centre.
From the farm, there are walking, cycle routes and bridleways meaning you can explore the area without getting in to your car.
On an early evening, you can walk to our local village pub the 'The Red Lion' (1.5 miles 30 minutes walk) which serves great food and Kniveton produced cider!
For groups, we can recommend a range of activities depending on your group needs.
