    About this property

    Enjoy fishing on-site at this property, or wildlife enthusiasts can try spotting bird, bagers and water voles.
    Leashaw Farm is a fabulous setting and abundant with wildlife, with less common species of birds and badgers, foxes and water voles. Nestling in Derbyshire, on a small working farm, Shire Cottage (ref UK10035) and Nightingale Cottage (ref UKC1570) date back to the 1600s. They have a commanding position off the beaten track in one of the most delightful valleys, which once formed part of Florence Nightingale’s country estate.

    The historic Cromford Canal and the beautiful River Derwent pass through the farmland offering cool walks and riverside picnic sites in the summer months. Whatstandwell is pivotal in the designated World Heritage Site of the Derwent Valley. There are many fine walks straight from the door of this charming cottage and it is only a short drive to Matlock Bath with its famous illuminations and Gullivers Kingdom, the National Tramway Museum, Carsington Water, Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Alton Towers and not forgetting the old market towns of Bakewell and Ashbourne, and of course the fabulous Derbyshire Dales.

    Fishing is available free of charge in the owners’ private pond, which has tench and crucian carp, and a ½ mile stretch of the River Derwent where you will find trout and grayling. The Peak District National Park is famous for providing glorious scenery and is a must for ramblers to the most serious walkers. Once you have visited Leashaw Farm and sampled all the delights these cottages have to offer, you’ll never want to leave. Shop ¾ mile, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
    Shire Cottage (ref UK10035) and Nightingale Cottage (ref UKC1570) can be booked together to accommodate up to 11 guests.

    "A beautiful cottage in wonderful setting. So handy to get to fascinating area attractions. Loved that we were on the tow path to Cromford canal and Ambergate. The children loved the animals too."
