Emma and Ben would like to offer everyone a warm welcome to Oldfields Farm. We are located in the beautiful village of Snelston, a five minute’s drive from the pretty market town of Ashbourne and several hundred yards from the inspirational birthplace of Handel’s ‘Water Music’. We are at the foot of the Peak District making this the perfect location for exploring the picturesque countryside or historic sites, like Chatsworth House. The Farm is was built in 1828 and formerly part of Snelston vicarage. It was designed by Cottingham, the father of Gothic Revival architecture and designer of Snelston Hall. Handel’s Muse is a converted farm building, which we offer for self-catering holidays. It is a mixture of contemporary and antique country furnishings offering a fabulous opportunity to relax in idyllic and secluded surroundings. High quality fittings, furnishings and decoration throughout make Handel’s Muse an ideal destination to relax and enjoy the countryside.


Oldfields Farm offers high quality self-catering accommodation in a lovely barn conversion mews house, named Handel’s Muse.


Emma and Ben Mills-Wallace recently bought Oldfields and are excited to meet both new and returning guests. We will ensure Handel’s Muse remains as luxurious as always but we will also be bringing a few exciting new changes. As well as Emma and Ben, you may meet Helen during your stay. Helen is Emma’s Mum and lives in Gorsey Hayes. She is the lady to thank for the beautiful gardens and making the delicious jam included in your Welcome Basket. You may also meet Seamus the staffy and Suki, our very own V.I.Pets.


At Oldfields Farm we love pets! We are located at the foot of the Peak District making it the perfect place for adventurous dog walks.
