Doveholes Cottage • Sleeps Maximum of 6 People
Doveholes Cottage is a conversion from pig and cattle buildings and a dovehouse built in 1847 from sandstone quarried on the farm and retains features from its previous use including the doveholes inside and the pig troughs outside.
It is south facing and situated in beautiful open countryside, officially designated a Special Landscape Area, between the villages of Kirk Ireton and Idridgehay, providing extensive views from outside the property down the Ecclesbourne Valley to Derby (12 miles) and beyond.
It provides accommodation for four in two bedrooms, one double room with ensuite and a twin room with a Jack and Jill bathroom. There is also a cot and a high chair.
To the front the former fold yard provides an area for outdoor lounging and eating and more parking than you will need. There is a brick built charcoal barbecue.
