Dove Farm Cottages, Ellastone, Ashbourne, Derbyshire (Sleeps 1-16)

Three comfortable and well-equipped barn conversions, that feel like home from home. With a separate large dining room to seat 18. Perfect for gathering everyone around the table. Ideal venue for getting together with friends or celebrating family occasions. The cottages are grouped around an attractive, shared patio garden, with easy access for those guests with reduced mobility. Dove farm cottages specialise in short breaks for groups, as well as offering individual cottages.

Barn Owl Cottage:
This spacious 3 bedroom holiday cottage can sleep 7 plus children in a twin room, a family room and a triple bedroom. The living room has SKY TV, Wi-Fi, books, toys and DVDs. The kitchen is well equipped and opens out onto a shared patio area.

Swallow Cottage:
Swallow Cottage is the middle one of the 3 cottages and can accommodate 4 people in a double and twin bedroom. There is a generous living/dining room which has SKY TV, WiFi, DVD player, DVDs, books, board games etc. Groups of guests hiring all three properties, enjoy gathering in this informal space. A light and airy, modern kitchen complete the layout of this cottage.

Wren Cottage:
This cosy 2 bedroom cottage can sleep 5 people in a double bedroom and a triple bedroom, which has a single bed plus full-size bunk beds. There is a sofabed in the living room, which enables larger groups hiring all cottages, to use this space as an extra “bedroom”. The kitchen is well equipped, with a Range cooker and an American style fridge/freezer. Ideal set up, if you are cooking for a larger group. Just pop next door to the studio dining room, to serve. Or perhaps bring in caterers?

Dove Dining Studio:
The Dove dining studio is a versatile space when hired together with the 3 adjoining cottages at Dove Farm.

It works equally well as a dining room, a celebration space, a training room for workshops and a place to congregate for retreats. There is an entrance area, leading directly from the car park, a kitchenette and 2 x additional toilets.

The farm looks out onto open fields, leading down to the River Dove. There is a farm and riverside walk for the exclusive use of dove farm guests. There are other walks from the farm gate and an award-winning pub restaurant, just 5 mins walking distance. The river marks the border between Derbyshire and Staffordshire – with so much to see and do within easy travel of the holiday cottages. Alton Towers is only 4 miles away. Other attractions include Sudbury Hall and Museum of Childhood, Churnet Valley railway, Carsington Water, Chatsworth and Dovedale, Trentham Gardens and the National Memorial Arboretum.
