              Stable cottage and Owls Roost are two delightful cottages attached to our farmhouse set in a large garden and 6 acres of fields and woodland with views towards the Weaver hills. It is a supremely peaceful location nestling in the Derbyshire countryside 4 miles south of the ancient market town of Ashbourne, the gateway to Dovedale and the Peak District National Park. The cottage would suit anyone wanting a relaxing retreat but also those after an activity holiday with superb walking and cycling in the area along with many other activities such as rock climbing, caving, and watersports. There are endless scenic places to visit in the peak park starting with Dovedale a few miles out of Ashbourne.The Tissington, Manifold and High Peak Cycle tracks are very popular with excellent cycle hire available.The famous Alton Towers theme and water park is just a 15 minute drive away and Chatsworth Stately home and gardens just 45 mins away. Carsington water with its water sports walking and cycling trails is a short drive away.

              Ashbourne itself offers an enjoyable shopping experience, with its stylish boutiques, antique shops, galleries, restaurants, cafes and pubs and several excellent supermarkets. The nearby historic towns of Bakewell, Wirksworth, Leek and Matlock provide a similar experience and the famous spa town of Buxton has additional attractions such as the beautifully restored Opera House and Devonshire Dome and from there one can take a train to the centre of Manchester for a day in the city. Similarly for those wanting a bigger shopping experience we are also well placed to visit Derby, Nottingham, Sheffield and Birmingham.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              Why the Owner Chose Derby:
              We have lived in Snelston for 20 yrs loving its wonderful peaceful location, moving to Brook farm 6 yrs ago to enjoy its special elevated position with open views and a wonderful garden which we share with our free range hens, dogs and visiting wildlife .Visitors to the cottages frequently here Owls that have given Owls Roost its name. Having little light pollution a clear night provides an incredible night sky for star gazers and any one interested should bring their binoculars or telescope.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              We believe our cottages appeal to all those who want a high standard of accommodation in a rural setting as the location is extremely peaceful set on the outskirts of the quiet historic village of Snelston. Access is easy being a short distance from the A515 between Ashbourne and Sudbury and provides a great place to stay if visiting the Peak park, Alton Towers, or any of the other wonderful visitor attractions nearby. We can provide walking routes , cycle routes and storage and even house your horse .
