    Although not a working farm Millfields Farm, where Woodpecker Loft sits does have some friendly residents for you to meet, which include four kune kune pigs, a pony, two miniature Shetland ponies, geese, chickens and ducks. Ideally situated at the southern tip of the Peak District near the picturesque market town of Ashbourne with its quaint cobbled market place and hidden alleys to explore. Carsington Water is a mere 3-minute walk away offering superb water sports, sailing and bike hire facilities with an area devoted to wildlife, along with cycle and walking trails. Other places to visit nearby include Bakewell, Matlock Bath, Haddon Hall, Chatsworth House and Keddleston Hall, as well as other National Trust and English Heritage properties. It is only a short drive to Dovedale and the other lovely dales of the limestone White Peak District, which offers great walking. A little further afield, visit Alton Towers theme park for a great day out for both adults and children alike. Woodpecker Loft is ideal for work retreats, family gatherings and weekends away catching up with friends so why not enjoy the beautiful views from this stunning cottage in its large private gated courtyard or from the balcony above? Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.
    Woodpecker Loft can be booked together with Swallow Barn (UK4023), Curlew Cottage (UK4024) and Barn Owl Lodge (UK4025) to accommodate up to 24 guests.

    Excellent property and location. The only issue we had was operating the Dish Washer as the Silk screen print for the start and reset buttons had been eroded, and finding the correct touch sensitive area on the panel was a lottery. The Hotpoint Oven didn't achieve the set temperature and needs looking at. Other than that stated, the venue and location was great for a weekend get together of friends travelling from different parts of the UK.

    The kitchen was incredible, extremely high spec, the dining table easily seated 10 and the sofas were comfortable and spacious. WiFi was a little disappointing - only available at one end of the kitchen near the log burner and none at all in the bedrooms. As mobile reception was also non-existant inside the house this was an issue. There was only 1 good sized bedroom and the two under the eaves were not really suitable for two full sized adults - ie low ceilings and no spare floor space in which to dress.

    The barn is absolutely beautiful! Furnished to a very high standard with quality kitchen equipment and crockery. The bedrooms and bathrooms are also gorgeous. The living space is such a great area for a large group and the view from the balcony is amazing. We all had a fantastic weekend and would highly recommend this place.

    We had a lovely time here to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. The cottage is VERY well equipped and spotless. The log burner was great. (The only slight downside was that 2 of the bedrooms were a little small. )

    Our family group of nine had an excellent 4 days at Woodpecker Loft. The barn has been an excellent conversion and all the rooms were to a high standard If I have one criticism is that the settees are very low and the older members found it impossible to get up and down with out help. Perhaps a couple of small easy chairs would have helped. The kitchen was well equipped and I enjoyed using a steam oven for the first time. The loft is in beautiful surroundings and lots of lovely walks unfortunately the mist only cleared on our final day. Thank you

    Fantastic property, probably the best equipped place we've stayed. Everything in the kitchen you could possibly need. Great space for family/friends gathering - huge woodburner made the open plan space feel really cosy. The bedrooms are a little bit cramped but the bedding is beautiful and the showers etc. are fab, plenty of hot water.

    The most amazing place to stay with fabulous views. The accommodation itself was lovely and spacious in the open plan living area. The en-suite bathrooms were modern & clean and the beds very comfortable. The whole place was spotless. We loved it that much we hope to go back again!
