Property code: 48675

This lodge is nestled in a special spot, the views have to be seen to be believed. Perfect romantic retreat with a wood burner for those chillier evenings. One bedroom, open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining.

Whether you would like to try wind surfing on Carsington Water or a less energetic stroll through historic Ashbourne, you will be centrally located for many attractions. Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Heights of Abraham, Tissington & Monsal Trail and Alton Towers are within easy reach. The views over Carsington Water are beautiful, yet only three miles from Ashbourne town centre. From the farm, there are walking, cycle routes and bridleways meaning you can explore the area without getting in to your car. On an early evening, you can walk to the local village pub which serves great food and Kniveton produced cider.

Stepping into the cosy open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining area. The first thing you notice are the large windows that act as a picture frame to the surrounding rolling countryside. The focal point of the room is a cosy wood burner which is perfect for those romantic nights in snuggled up in front of the fire on the comfy sofa. The area also presents a Smart TV/DVD and extendable dining table if you decide to do a spot of cooking. The compact kitchen area offers an electric oven and gas hob, dishwasher and fridge. At the end of the lodge is the double bedroom with built-in wardrobes and a comfy bed you wont want to leave. The bathroom is surprisingly spacious with electric shower over the bath WC and heated towel rail.

The outside of the lodge really makes this something special, there is a decked area to the front of the lodge to sit, relax and lose your thoughts over the sublime views. If you love animals, the outside space is perfect to relax and watch the sheep, Belted Galloway cows and Shire horses graze the pastures and meadows around the farm whilst soaking up the peaceful tranquillity. The rear of the lodge also offers a private patio area with seating and BBQ. There is ample parking around the lodge.

Stunning location the views from lodge are wonderful. A more peaceful location we could not imagine. The only downside is the long drive up to the farm from the road along single track roads but when you get there it is well worth it.

We found Ewe Lodge to be very comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. It's in a great location, and we spent hours on the decking enjoying the fantastic view of the valley and the sounds of nature. Craig and Aaron, the owners, were very welcoming and helpful. We will definitely be going back!

This is the ideal place to get away from it all and relax. The accommodations, the rolling fields of sheep, cows, and horses, the distant views of the countryside below, and the feeling of peace and oneness with nature were total perfection!

Ewe Lodge was very well equipped and had everything to make the most of a holiday in this area. The views were magnificent and the surrounding countryside with sheep, horses and cows a complete haven from everyday hustle. Gentle or strenuous walks straight from the door and the Red Lion in Kniveton was a welcome pit-stop! The decor was light and veRead morery relaxing. Would have no hesitation in recommending and would love to return one day. Hide
