The property

Ashbourne 7 miles.

A traditional detached farmhouse situated near Ilam in Ashbourne.

Resting close to a working farm above the Manifold Valley in a small remote hamlet called Castern, this accommodation promises a wonderful stay for families all year round.

Walking inside, you will be greeted by a porch where you can store your shoes and coats after a day exploring the area.

This leads to a charming hallway, with rose coloured carpets and a delightful stairway.

The dining room is to the right with an electric fire.

All of the family can gather round and relax in the evening hours.

Neighbouring there is a kitchen which is neutrally designed and comes complete with a table and chairs, so you can enjoy breakfast before heading out for the day.

Continue through the hallway to find the cloakroom with a toilet and handbasin.

A lovely sitting room is close by; a cosy space to relax in front of the open fire after a day exploring the area.

With a music system and a collection of DVD's you can sit back and feel right at home.

Take the stairs, and you will find two double bedrooms, one of which has an adjoined en-suite.

There are also two twin bedrooms which are neatly styled and in three of the bedrooms you will find beautiful views of the countryside.

A family bathroom also awaits and is beautifully finished.

Outside, you can relax on the patio area and admire the views, or enjoy a barbecue with friends on a pleasant evening.

Explore the town of Ashbourne - an English market town with narrow cobbled alleys, interesting buildings, coaching inns and almshouse.

Just under 2 miles away you will find the village of Ilam which has many footpaths for you to explore, or go to the famous Ilam National Trust Park which is close -by.

The Dove and Manifold Valleys are in distance, while Alton Towers is just 20 minutes away.

About the location


Ashbourne 5 miles; Stoke-on-Trent 22.2 miles

This picturesque village lies beside the River Manifold, among the limestone hills of the Staffordshire Peak District. Brushing borders with Derbyshire, close to the famous Dovedale valley, this village boasts a historic church and pretty, Alpine-style cottages. Ilam Park, owned by the National Trust, is the perfect place to picnic or stroll with your families and four-legged friends, boasting a riverside backdrop and popular tea-room garden for all to enjoy the year-round. The neo-Gothic Ilam Hall is a stately home now housing a youth hostel within the grounds, as sheep graze peacefully in the open grassland. The views stretch for miles across the Italian Gardens and a challenging circular walk leads you through 10 miles of stunning scenery, taking in Thor's Cave and Wetton village. About five miles away, at the southern end of the Peak District, is the quintessential English market town of Ashbourne, with narrow cobbled alleys, coaching inns and almshouses. There are many restaurants and pubs to choose from, as well as antique shops. For those seeking a thrill from rollercoaster rides, Alton Towers is easily reached from here and further afield you have the cities of Derby and Nottingham. A wonderful location for your next adventure.
