Carsington, Derbyshire, England
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.

We lamb our sheep during March and April - children are most welcome to help bottle feed lambs and calves under adult supervision, on request.

The cottage is extremely cosy and the bedrooms are absolutely lovely! Great views from upstairs and the cottage has lots of original features. It was nice to have the freedom to roam around the farm with our dog and we felt very welcome. Great to find a bottle of wine and crisps upon arrival!
