Description

Sitting in the beautiful village of Longford, next to the owners’ home, you can find Ostrich Barns, two stunning properties located behind electric gates. With every attention to detail thought of, these fantastic properties are the ideal place for a getaway with friends or family. Both properties boast co-ordinated and soft furnishing throughout to offer that sense of comfort. The Dairy stands detached and offers a private garden and beautiful accommodation for families and couples alike, with two en-suite bedrooms, and a cosy open plan living space. The village pub is situated a stone’s throw away from the properties in a quiet little village, along with a network of footpaths to stroll along. A little further afield, Dovedale, the Manifold Valley and Tissington offer great cycling and walking opportunities. Situated just 6 miles south of Ashbourne, Longford has wonderful views over the Derbyshire countryside and is within easy reach of many of the surrounding attractions. There are two fishing lakes available within 3 miles away.
Why not visit Ashbourne, once a fashionable social hub in the 18th century, the town is rich with original cobbled lanes, old market stalls and grand Georgian buildings lining the streets. It is also home to a good selection of restaurants, interesting shops and traditional coaching inns. Longford is also a great base to explore the nearby Peak District delights such as Matlock and Matlock Bath, which has been attracting visitors since the 17th century. A host of attractions await including Gulliver’s Kingdom and the Peak District Mining Museum. Magnificent views down the gorge can be enjoyed from the cable car which takes visitors up to the Heights of Abraham, a great place for all the family with its show caves, nature trail and water gardens. A little further north is the market town of Bakewell, and the world renowned Chatsworth House and Gardens, a lavish stately home with noted art collection, plus a playground and farmyard in the lush grounds. The famous Alton Towers theme park is within easy reach, just 13 miles away.
After a long day exploring there’s nothing better than returning to Ostrich Barns, popping your feet up and enjoying all that these wonderful properties have to offer. Shop 4 miles, pub 200 yards and restaurant 1 mile.
The Dairy can be booked together with The Hayloft (ref UK4064) to accommodate up to 10 guests.

About the local area

Ashbourne is situated in a beautiful green valley and is the southern gateway to the Peak District. A short distance from the River Dove, commanding the approach to Dovedale, this is one of Derbyshire's finest old market towns which still displays the original medieval street planning with historic buildings and a wealth of high quality shops. Even today the towns' appearance has changed little since the 18th century.

The cobbled market place, hidden alleys and yards are a delight to explore. Its many fine historic buildings include St. Oswald's Church, Owfield's Almshouses and The Mansion. The towns past visitors include Dr Johnson and James Boswell, Charles I and Bonny Prince Charlie, who stayed here on his march south to Derby in 1745.

Clustered around the old market square and along the main street there are many boutiques, antique shops, bistros, food shops and pubs including The Green Man and Black's Head, a famous Georgian coaching inn once frequented by Dr Johnson and Boswell.

To the north is Ilam at the lower end of the River Manifold; a pretty village with a long history, dominated by a memorial cross erected in 1840. Further along the Manifold Valley is Throwley Hall where the ruins of a fine Elizabethan manor house can be found.

Just off the Buxton-Ashbourne road is the village of Tissington, which is delightfully laid out with an imposing southern approach via a gateway and avenue of lime trees.

Other places of interest in the area are Tissington Hall near Ashbourne with wonderful paintings, furniture and porcelain, The Tissington Trail cycle route which follows the former Buxton to Ashbourne railway line and Thor's Cave in the Manifold Valley which was first inhabited by Stone Age man.
