About Offcote Grange Cottage Holidays
Offcote Grange Cottage Holidays is a family run business specialising in luxury self catering accommodation near the Peak District, perfectly located within the Derbyshire Dales to enjoy all the many sites and activities this area has to offer.
Pat and Chris live at Offcote Grange, a beautifully proportioned, historic grade II listed 17th century Derbyshire farmhouse. A former coaching stop and large farmhouse with accommodation, the Grange nestles quietly amidst 10 acres of lush rolling pastureland, peacefully grazed by sheep, cattle and our donkeys and chickens. Our beautiful Peak District holiday cottages are surrounded by green fields and overlook the Henmoor Valley and woodland, the views from all accommodation are outstanding. The Grange has a large walled garden now restocked with many unusual plants, this is private but may be walked around by arrangement. At the front of the grange and overlooking the valley is a large pond which is stocked with assorted fish, wildlife has moved in and we now have a breeding stock of moorhens, ducks, frogs, toads and newts. Beautiful scenery for you to sit by and relax.
Our two large, individual self catering cottages comprise of, Hillside Croft a luxury character Derbyshire sandstone holiday cottage of charm and history being a grade 11 listed building, located on the outskirts of the village of Hulland Ward just 5 miles from Ashbourne, and Billy’s Bothy a mellow red brick self catering holiday cottage which sits in the grounds of Offcote Grange our family home, located just 1 mile from the historic market town of Ashbourne.
