My place is close to public transport but a car would be advisable. You’ll love my place because of exposed beams and stonework, the homely cosiness, the views, and the rural location of a working Organic Beef and Sheep Farm. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets).
In the heart of the beautiful Derbyshire Dales and on the edge of the Peak District, Owslow Farm is a working organic beef and lamb farm and the cottage offers a combination of traditional features and modern accommodation. The property is approximately 400 years old and stands in its three hundred and sixty acres overlooking Carsington Reservoir. It is very welcoming and boasts exposed stone and beams, and fabulous countryside views.
Everything will be clean, warm and welcoming for your arrival including linen and towels, and cosy beds (single beds have memory foam mattress toppers for more comfort and luxury).
We hope that your stay at Owslow Cottage will be as enjoyable as possible.
There are many facilities on the farm that can be enjoyed by the whole family, making this a fantastic property for a holiday in this area. We lamb our sheep during March and April - children are most welcome to help bottle feed lambs and calves under adult supervision, on request. We are extremely dog friendly but do ask for a small charge of £18.00 to accommodate up to 3 dogs. We provide a dog bowl and luxury dog towel for your canine companions. However, we do ask that dogs are kept on a lead when walking the fields around this time of year. We also have a range of animals such as lamas, free-range hens, ducks, geese, dogs and cats.
We live in the main farmhouse which adjoins the cottage, and are there if needed, but try to keep a low profile and not intrude on your holiday. We are extremely family friendly as we have a young family ourselves, and have additional equipment i.e. stairgate, travel cot, booster seat, and bed guard rails available for use on request. Also children are more than welcome to use the trampoline, slide and sit-on tractors under adult supervision.
Welcome pack including a complimentary bottle of wine and hand cooked crisps all ready for you to enjoy on arrival at the cottage
