Welcome to Acorn Holiday Cottage

A warm  welcome awaits you at Acorn Cottage, a peaceful barn conversion at Oaks Lane Farm on the edge of Ashover in quiet rural Derbyshire close to the Peak District National Park.

Acorn Cottage is set on our working smallholding.  It is the perfect base for a relaxing holiday, or you may prefer to take in a visit to the magnificent Chatsworth House, immerse yourself in the industrial heritage of the Derwent Valley UNESCO World Heritage Site, or just lose yourself in the lovely countryside.

If walking is your ideal holiday, there are walks for all capabilities from the door and the glorious Peak District National Park is close by with its spectacular scenery, pretty villages, fantastic walking and stunning views.  We are happy to help you plan your holiday, or just point you in the right direction, whatever you prefer.

Most importantly relax, unwind, have fun and enjoy your stay!
