About Foxglove Cottage

Foxglove Cottage is one of five gorgeous properties at Standlow Farm on the edge of the Peak District National Park in the beautiful Derbyshire Dales. The owners have created a welcoming space for everyone from couples to groups of up to 52 people. Guests can enjoy spending time together in these wonderfully peaceful surroundings with far reaching views and plenty of space both indoors and out. Foxglove (with hot tub!) is perfect for large and extended families as it has space for 8/10 people in four bedrooms (8 adults or 10 guests with the use of a sofa bed in the living room) and is within walking distance of the friendly Red Lion pub in Kniveton and just a mile from Carsington Water.

Kniveton is a pretty village with a lovely church at its centre. The historic market town of Ashbourne is only three miles away so visitors to Foxglove Cottage can drive, walk or even cycle to pick up provisions, enjoy a relaxing lunch or browse the shops and stalls at the weekly market. Ashbourne has over 200 listed buildings, and a stroll along the winding streets will see you peering into windows and walking past doorways that have welcomed guests for centuries. Kniveton is also near to Belper, Wirksworth, and Matlock, while Bakewell is easily accessible for a day's shopping and sightseeing.

Guests who enjoy being outdoors and active will love Standlow as there is so much to do in the area. The Tissington Trail is the perfect place to start as it provides 13 miles of traffic-free path that can be used by walkers, cyclists and horses. You can follow it all the way from Ashbourne to Parsley Hay where it meets the High Peak Trail at Cromford Canal, giving even more miles of beautiful county scenery. Rock climbing and abseiling are popular, and kids love the high ropes course at Buxton Tree Top Adventures. The views underground are as stunning as those above when you visit Blue John Cavern and Poole Cavern, both of which are perfect all-weather activities.

The Dovedale Valley is a fantastic year-round destination for all ages and interests. Foxglove Cottage can be rented on its own or together with one or more of the other properties at Standlow so you should certainly consider it if you are searching for the ideal location for a special celebration or a get-together with family and friends from around the country.
