Somersal Cottages are located in the rolling hills of the Derbyshire Dales in the hamlet of Somersal Herbert on a 150 acre farm, just a few miles to Ashbourne, the gateway to the Peak District and its many attractions. Alton Towers, the Potteries and Derby are a short drive away, even closer is Uttoxeter with its famous racecourse. Several footpaths cross the farm giving good access to local walks.

The cottages are just a couple of miles from the A50 which gives excellent access to the M6, M1 and M42, and from all directions.

The cottages share a tennis court (bring racquets and balls) and each has either a pool table or snooker table as well. The grounds have a level site for marquees for weddings or parties with excellent views over surrounding countryside. Each has a well equipped kitchen/dining room, with the Forge able to seat 32, and barbecue (bring your own charcoal).
