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. Hayloft is a beautifully presented, semi-detached property, with delightful bedrooms, bathrooms 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. Fishing is available just 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 Hayloft can be booked together with The Dairy (ref UK4183) to accommodate up to 10 guests.
