- Peaceful adults-only farm stays in the Derbyshire Dales
- A 10-minute drive to Ashbourne, Carsington Water and the Peak District
- Family-run site with direct access to a public footpath
Point your compass towards the Derbyshire Dales and scoop up an adults-only stay at Offcote Grange, a well-kept family farm a couple of miles outside of the market town of Ashbourne.
Tempted by the prospect of sleeping in the grounds of a 17th-century farmhouse? For those looking for grownup hols, there's the added bonus that there'll be no noisy kids scurrying around site. Mild mischief is laid on (quietly and at a safe distance) by Offcote Grange's cheeky donkeys, who cavort through neighbouring paddocks as the farm's herd of cattle look on.
There’s no denying that these green Derbyshire grounds are kept in admirably good nick – while the animals graze gracefully in their field, owners Pat and Chris manually mow the grassy patches earmarked for human habitation. This tourer-friendly spot has a gated hard driveway for easy arrivals and departures, with facilities housed in a purpose-built block that has three sinks, toilets and showers (including a disabled cubicle). Several water taps are dotted around, and a handy waste disposal point is on hand should you need it.
Stepping out to tour the surrounding Henmoor Valley could hardly be simpler, as there's a well-trodden footpath that passes right by the front of the farm. It's possible to traipse through the fields down to Ashbourne, but if you're planning on loading up on bargains at the Thursday market you might want to clear the car boot and drive the 10 minutes into town instead.

Keeping things local? It's a doddle to get from this well-located site to loads of nearby locales of note, whether you're keen to potter around Ashbourne's antiques shops, stride through the Derbyshire Dales or go boating on nearby Carsington Water (all 10 minutes' drive).
Holidaymakers of an outdoorsy disposition are also a 10-minute drive from the edge of the Peak District National Park, a playground for walkers, pedallers and horsey folk. If you have a soft spot for stately homes, the surrounding Derbyshire countryside is also where to find cool country piles like Norbury Hall (20 minutes), Kedleston Hall (30 minutes) and Chatsworth House (45 minutes).
Just because there are no kids about to egg you on, it doesn't mean you can't take advantage of this spot's proximity to Alton Towers (25 minutes) to zoom around on coasters of an afternoon. Go Ape Buxton (30 minutes) is also within reach if you have a head for heights but don't fancy queuing up to get your adrenaline fix.
