Holiday Rental House
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. **New for 2018** A beautiful blooming enclosed courtyard of trailing colourful flowers and pot plants, comfortable rattan furniture and coffee table for your enjoyment and relaxation at the back of the cottage. 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.

The property is approximately 400 years old and stands in its three hundred and sixty acres overlooking Carsington Reservoir.

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. 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.More
