Longford Hall Farm Cottages
Longford Hall Farm Cottages are two cottages, situated a short drive away from each other in Derbyshire, England, just a few miles from the bustling market town of Ashbourne - both cottages have been renovated into stylish holiday homes. South Lodge dates back to 1892 and has original character with the exposed beams and brick inglenook fireplace housing a woodburning stove. While Ardsley Cottage is a modern property, with a tasteful décor and high-quality furnishings, providing a warming retreat. These cottages offer welcoming sitting rooms, with plenty of furniture to relax and unwind of an evening, with TVs provided, so you can catch up on your favourite shows. The kitchens are well-equipped with a range of appliances on-hand and a dining area to use as a quiet space for some late night or early morning reading, or to enjoy family meals together. The cottages come with homely, warming bedrooms, along with more than ample storage. Delight in the family bathrooms, which provides elegant baths, so you can take a relaxing soak in the tub of an evening, or a quick shower to start your day. Use the enclosed gardens to sit out with a refreshing beverage and bask in the fabulous countryside air. Nestled within small villages and set along a network of leafy lanes in delightful rural isolation, in the south Derbyshire Dales, these properties have a good village pub within walking distance.

About the location
Matlock 14 miles.
Lying at the southern end of the Peak District, Ashbourne is a perfect example of an English market town - market place with stalls, eccentric street plan, narrow cobbled alleys, coaching inns and almshouses. In its heyday in the 18th century, the town was a fashionable social centre and many fine Georgian buildings remain from this period. Today the town still has much to offer in terms of restaurants and inns and is regarded as something of a haven for antique hunters - but don’t expect a bargain! For those who prefer more outdoor pursuits, the Dove and Manifold Valleys are close by. Alton Towers is just 20 minutes away.
