Rose Cottage is one wing of Hazelhurst Farm (the left part of the main house in the photo) which is a beautifully developed 150 year old Derbyshire farmhouse, in a magnificent 50 acre setting overlooking the lake, with modern facilities available in every room, including digital TV and WIFI internet connections if required. Most rooms have superb views over the Derbyshire countryside and the lake, where hundreds of carp are waiting to take your bait if you are interested in fishing while you are here.

Rose Cottage has two luxury double bedrooms, both overlooking the lake, two toilets (one with bath and shower), a lounge area with TV, and a dining/kitchen utility room. Whilst set up for 4 people in the two double bedrooms, it is possible to accommodate groups of 6 with the 2 extra people using a sofa bed in the lounge, or one of our luxury bedrooms in the main house for an additional charge.

The basic set-up is for up to 4 people without using the large lounge, which can be included if required for an additional £80 for 2/3 nights, or £120 per week. if the third double bedroom in the main house is required there is an additional £100 charge.

Local walks start at our front and back gates, and if you have a horse and can't bear to be parted then bring it along and enjoy the local on/off road hacking which start on the lane that runs behind our lovely grassland fields. Superb stable facilities, with a floodlit menage, show jumps and ample post & rail-fenced paddocks. For bird-watchers we have resident Buzzards in our woods, and the usual mix of Moorhens, Coots, Mallards, and Canada Geese on the lake, with Swans (who bred here a couple of years ago), Little Terns, Oyster Catchers and Herons visiting from time to time. Less welcome visitors are the Cormorants who sometime drop in for breakfast, take a few decent-sized fish, and then struggle to take off as soon as anyone appears.

We are located within 10 minutes of Kedleston Hall, and Carsington Water, with Dovedale and the beautiful Peak District just beyond the lovely market town of Ashbourne 5 miles away.

Village shop 1 mile away with two excellent pub restaurants within 10 minutes drive, which can be booked in advance of your stay. There are two local golf courses on our doorstep and clay pigeon shooting, quad biking, watersports, close by for the more adventurous. Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Hardwick Hall, Alton Towers theme park, Donnington Park motor racing circuit, and Uttoxeter racecourse are all within 40 minutes drive
