Orchard Barn and Anvil Cottage, Draycott-in-the-Clay, Peak District

Sleeps 5 - 11 4 Bedrooms 11 Dining

Contemporary cottages near Ashbourne and the Peak District, sleeping 11 with a hot tub, for holidays and girls weekends

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Orchard Barn and Anvil Cottage, Draycott-in-the-Clay, Peak District, sleeps 5 - 11 in 4 bedrooms.

Sleeps 5 to 11 in 2 cottages - can usually only be rented together:
Orchard Barn sleeps 7
Anvil Cottage sleeps 4

When booking, you are booking both cottages together (no need to make a separate booking for Anvil Cottage), so you will have exclusive use of the 7 seater hot tub and recreational areas. Please note that whilst they are attached to each other, it is not possible to access the other without briefly going outside (just a few steps across the well lit, private paved area).

We occasionally offer Orchard Barn (sleeps 7) on its own at a reduced rate, but only if it's available in the next 3 months. We reserve further out dates for larger groups.

Ideal for extended families, friends, reunions and social get-togethers and birthday parties for up to 11 people (+ cot). Our guests tell us that this arrangement is ideal as it means that extended families have their own space, with ample room in Orchard Barn to socialise together. 2 night weekend breaks are available, but we try to reserve the school holidays for slightly longer stays.

The 2 cottages are contemporary barn conversions, Orchard Barn is the larger of the 2 barns and is 2 bedroomed (1 double and 1 triple) + a pair of single beds (75cm each) that can be zipped together to create a king sized bed downstairs (see layout pic). This part of the barn sleeps 7 and has catering and dining facilities for all 11 guests. The upstairs bathroom has a bath with shower over and there's also a shower room downstairs, all with underfloor heating, contemporary fittings and fully tiled.

There is endless hot water and heating supplied by an eco-friendly state of the art biomass boiler.

Anvil Cottage is a luxury 2 bedroomed conversion (1 double and 1 bunk bed). The cottage has a kitchen with breakfast table, and a separate lounge with 2 settees and a log burner. The fully tiled contemporary bathroom upstairs has a shower over the bath and underfloor heating.

No pets, sorry. As we advertise 'No pets' we get enquiries form allergy sufferers, so need to remain vigilant.

There is an Oval Cape Breeze House in the garden for alfreso dining (Easter - 1st Oct only).

Don't forget your flip flops for walking to and from the hot tub!
