Garden Farm is 5 miles from Ashbourne, and 1 mile from the renowned beauty spot of Dovedale. Tissington trail also passes close by and footpaths into the surrounding area are right on our doorstep. For the young and young-at-heart, Alton Towers is about eight miles away.

The cottage We welcome well-behaved pets (see pet policy) and children who can explore all of our woodland and paddock. There is ample car parking plus secure cycle storage and plenty of places to clean and dry muddy boots, coats, pets and children! We do operate a no smoking policy in the house and cottage. Evening meal may be available by prior arrangement. We source as much produce as possible locally, and from the smaller shops in Ashbourne.

Originally built in the 1800s, Garden Farm was part of the Ilam Hall estate and during it's time has served as farm workers cottage and barns for livestock. Partly converted in the 1930's and further extended and renovated to a very high standard about fifteen years ago, today the house offers the perfect place to stay, either as a bed and breakfast guest or in the cottage, currently let through English Country Cottages. For cottage bookings outside of the season, please contact us direct.

Debbie and Richard look forward to welcoming you to Garden Farm. If you have any queries or require further information, please give us a call.
