Woodpecker Loft provides stunning accommodation at the southern tip of the Peak District within walking distance of Carsington Water and close to the picturesque market town of Ashbourne.

Woodpecker Loft is an exquisite, semi-detached barn conversion within the owner’s grounds and just a short walk from Carsington Water. This stunning restored property has retained its huge oak beams within the cathedral roof and impressive chandeliers hang down from here lighting up the open plan living area. All five bedrooms boast their own bespoke shower/bathroom along with exquisite soft furnishing and décor.
Although not a working farm Millfields Farm, where Woodpecker Loft sits does have some friendly residents for you to meet, which include four kune kune pigs, a pony, two miniature Shetland ponies, geese, chickens and ducks. Ideally situated at the southern tip of the Peak District near the picturesque market town of Ashbourne with its quaint cobbled market place and hidden alleys to explore. Carsington Water is a mere 3-minute walk away offering superb water sports, sailing and bike hire facilities with an area devoted to wildlife, along with cycle and walking trails. Other places to visit nearby include Bakewell, Matlock Bath, Haddon Hall, Chatsworth House and Keddleston Hall, as well as other National Trust and English Heritage properties. It is only a short drive to Dovedale and the other lovely dales of the limestone White Peak District, which offers great walking. A little further afield, visit Alton Towers theme park for a great day out for both adults and children alike. Woodpecker Loft is ideal for work retreats, family gatherings and weekends away catching up with friends so why not enjoy the beautiful views from this stunning cottage in its large private gated courtyard or from the balcony above?

    One of the best cottages I've rented however disappointed that dogs are not permitted as this would be ideal for my extended family. The owners were a delight to deal with and helped make the holiday the most relaxed despite heavy snow and worries about getting there.

    A fabulous place in a fabulous location. We spent a week there over Christmas, 8 adults 1 child, and everything was perfect. All the things you need are catered for, and David and his wife who own the place are lovely charming people. The open plan setting allows a constant feeling of togetherness and I would thoroughly recommend Woodpecker Loft for any social or family gathering.
