  • "Wow, what a lovely cottage."

    We were welcomed to the property and showed around by Andrew, the welcome pack of chocolates, coffee, tea and fresh flowers were a lovely touch. The local farm breakfast pack of sausages, eggs, bacon, hash brown, mushrooms, tomatoes apple juice, oatcakes, milk ensured the Saturday started off well. We made use of the hot tub on three occasions, despite the wind and rain and it was great. The gym was also used over the weekend and this is a lovely addition to the cottage. Plenty of places locally to eat out and the food was lovely. We ate at the Black Swan in Ashover and The Kelstege Inn. What an amazing property, would thoroughly recommend this to anyone wanting to have a relaxing break away. Thank you Andrew and Lesley

  • "We had the most wonderful week long stay at this beautiful cottage for our annual girlie getaway."

    The cottage itself is spacious, spotlessly clean and very well appointed, the owners have literally thought of everything you could possibly want or need to make your stay perfect!! Well located and the hot tub was sublime - especially in the snow after a long day shopping at Christmas market. Andrew and Lesley are very friendly and attentive hosts -nothing too much trouble. We will definitely look to return next year. Thank you for everything.

    Hi Carole, we are glad you had a great time, thank you for your review and hope you had a good Christmas! Look forward to welcoming you both back next year! Andrew and Lesley Property Owner

  • "Such a lovely well appointed cottage."

    As described however the photos do not do it justice. Very friendly hosts, all new fixtures and fittings, high end furniture, comfy couches. Beds and bedding you want to 'sleep in' for. Gorgeous bathroom with double sinks. The welcome basket, snuggle blankets, books and games adding the personal touch to a wonderful spacious cottage. Underfloor heating in the bathroom, individual room heating, motion sensor lights. The hot tub is certainly large enough and the view from it so peaceful. :)

    Hi Rachel, many thanks for your review! Glad you enjoyed your stay, Andrew and Lesley Property Owner

  • "The pre arrival brochure, I got was very detailed, and the preference sheet, on how I would like the cottage set up showed attention to detail and the intention to go above and beyond for guests."

    I was greeted at the gate, and given a very detailed show round the pictures online do not do the cottage justice, it is beautiful. What is most amazing is that Lesley and Andrew have put so many amazing treats and extras on for guests. The main bathroom has a basket of toiletries, scrunchies for washing yourself, huge towels on huge radiators, and it has under floor heating. In the lounge the most incredible welcome basket, with coffee, Tea, chocolates, biscuits, sweets, local honey brilliant. Also Fresh flowers on the table. In the kitchen washing up, scrubbers etc they have thought of everything. It's stunning courtyard with big modern hot tub, and views over the fields. Lesley and Andrew are superb hosts, and I wish them luck on this new venture, genuine hardworking people it was a pleasure to meet them.

    Thank you so much, its great to know the effort we have put in is appreciated! Andrew and Lesley Property Owner

  • "We had the honour of being the first to stay in this fabulous cottage."

    The quality of the furnishings was of a very high standard indeed. Beds really comfy. Welcome pack very thoughtful with local tea, coffee and chocolates etc. Hosts also supplied very useful things like foil, cling film, washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets, salt and pepper, also tupperware provided in case we wanted a picnic. Plenty of toilet rolls left too. Cottage very private both front and rear and the setting was lovely. Very good quality hot tub and garden furniture. All in all would wholeheartedly recommend.

    Thank you for your wonderful review, it was a pleasure accommodating you as our first guests and hope to see you again sometime! Andrew and Lesley Property Owner

The property

Ashover 2 miles.

Tucked away amidst the rolling Derbyshire fields on the outskirts of Alton near Ashover is Moor Farm Cottage.

This delightful cottage has been thoughtfully renovated blending characterful beams with contemporary appliances and stylish decor, it also benefits from a spacious, open-plan living space, two beautifully-appointed bedrooms, a gym and a wonderful patio with far-reaching countryside views, hot tub and barbecue; the perfect choice for couples, small families or friends looking to explore Derbyshire.

After a day full of exploration, cross the threshold into your new home-from-home and head straight into the open-plan living space where you can unwind in front of the Smart TV on either of the plush sofas.

From here you can watch on as the designated chef of the group rustles up a hearty meal in the fully-equipped kitchen, sample their culinary creations at the dining table or on warmer evenings indulge in an alfresco affair by firing up the barbecue.

While away evenings with a glass of wine in hand while you admire the breath-taking views across the countryside before indulging in a soothing soak in the hot tub; the perfect place to marvel at the sun set or the stars as they fill the sky.

When the evening draws to a close, head back inside to wash off the day’s adventures in the shower room before sloping off to sleep in either the super-king-size or twin/super-king-size (zip/link) bedrooms.

If you can tear yourself away from this delightful dwelling, venture into the nearby village of Ashover, with a choice of three local pubs serving real ales, including 5 times Camra pub of the year winner The Old Poet’s Corner.

Ashover is also a previous winner of the Calor Gas Village of the Year award and is one of the prettiest villages in Derbyshire.

Ashover has a fascinating 15th century church, many historic buildings and stunning surrounding countryside.

Indulge in a hearty breakfast or quick bite to eat in the Stamp Coffee Shop or sample some tasty treats from Anna’s tuck shop.

Ashover also has a butchers/grocery store and a post office.

Also nearby is the village of Kelstedge where you can pick up essentials at the local farm shop or enjoy a well-earned break from the kitchen with food at The Kelstedge Inn.

A must see is the nearby spa village of Matlock Bath; renowned as a seaside resort nowhere near the sea, this unique place sports old-timey fish and chip shops, ice cream parlours, candy floss parlours, glitzy arcades and souvenir boutiques all alongside the River Derwent.

The magnificent Chatworth House is a short drive from Moor Farm and this renowned stately home, and its stunning gardens should not be missed.

Chatsworth has been used as a location set for numerous films, television, and music videos, as well as hosting an annual Country Fair and Chatsworth Horse Trials.

It also boasts a wonderful farmyard and adventure playground to keep the kids amused.

Chesterfield is also within reach where you can find a whole host of other amenities and eateries as well as the Revolution House Museum; continue this historic excursion by visiting the stunning Haddon Hall, the breath-taking Bolsover Castle, or the Elizabethan Hardwick Hall.

The Peak District National Park also lies nearby offering an abundance of walking, cycling, and hiking trails with picturesque panoramas over the English Countryside.

All this and more awaits at Moor Farm Cottage.
