Looking for a rural holiday cottage that’s also close to beautiful walks, dog-friendly pubs/restaurants, boutique shops and a ‘beach’? Do you also want a private enclosed garden where you can let your dogs run free that also has your own BBQ? How about somewhere that can organise really special optional extras like massages in your cottage or personal gin tastings? Oldfields Farm can do all of that! Emma and Ben would like to welcome you to our 4 star gold self-catering cottage for two people and up to two dogs just outside Ashbourne and the Peak District. The cottage has its own private enclosed garden, a gym and games room on site, shire horses in the fields, great walks from the door and is close to attractions like Alton Towers, the Tissington Trail, Carsington Water and the famous Dovedale steps. 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.
