Farming Experience
There are many facilities on the farm that can be enjoyed by the whole family, making this a fantastic property for a holiday in this area. We lamb our sheep during March and April – and we do ask that dogs are kept on a lead when walking the fields during this time. Children are most welcome to help bottle feed lambs and calves under adult supervision, on request. We also have a range of animals such as lamas, free range hens (eggs available to purchase at the main farmhouse), ducks, geese, dogs and cats. Children are more than welcome to use the trampoline, slide and sit–on tractors under adult supervision.

The Great Outdoors
You could make the most of the outdoors and our farmland, and enjoy a 15-20 minutes walk directly from the cottage down to the Carsington Reservoir track (full route and photographs in welcome pack) or alternatively 20 minutes walk to 3 local pubs/restaurants.

Visitor's Reviews

Owslow cottage exceeded all of my expectations, the place itself is such a warm and rustic place. It is perfect if you want to explore the peak district and stay somewhere cheap and affordable. Natalie is a great host who replied very quickly to us. We would highly recommend the alpaca walk with Natalie, you can tell the enthusiasm and passion she has for her alpacas which is so refreshing. Overall I couldn’t recommend this place highly enough and we cant wait to return.

For Owslow Cottage

The cottage is beautiful and has everything you need. My kids absolutely loved being on a farm and the owners went above and beyond to make sure they enjoyed it, showing us animals and the tractor and sharing all their outdoor toys. We felt so welcome and will be coming again!
