Lower Damgate Farm Dovedale Peak District HotTub Animal Sanctuary Sleeps 22-30

Located in: Ashbourne
Lower Damgate Farm is a perfect destination for large groups, families, and special occasions or to host your wedding or event. We provide luxury accommodation in and around a 16th Century Farm House and working farm (Dovedale Animal Sanctuary) The Farm is nestled between the Rivers of Dovedale and the Manifold Valley in the Peak District National Park with far reaching views and stunning walks straight from the farm.
As well as this site and our own please look at our facebook page Lowerdamgatefarm where many guests have left reviews and we have posted recent photographs as the property has been updated a little! We have a very relaxed attitude with a philosophy that "Nothing is a Problem" and if you do book with us then it would be a pleasure to welcome you and hopefully you will have a wonderful time with your family and friends as well as meeting the animals and exploring this beautiful part of the world.
We specialise in large groups, get-togethers and special occasions. The Courtyard Property is 4 stars and highly commended in the Sunday Times Travel Reviews. The cottages are really lovely, a little quirky but all amenities are catered for with luxurious furnishings, antiques and comfortable beds as well as wifi and up to date technology.
Hire from Homeaway is for The Courtyard property. This has been specially adapted for large groups where there is space to be together or separate depending upon your needs and the main dining area in Reuben's Roost (part of the "courtyard property") is large enough to seat everyone so that you can all dine together, plus we provide spare tables and chairs if you have booked the whole. There is a lot of space to relax and unwind, or even roll back a rug and dance! There is also a large laundry room as well as a games room with a pool table, TV and board games! For those who want to do their own thing there are also other kitchens, dining and break off rooms. The farm also has a Hot Tub and Party Barn by separate negation. Plus there are all the outside decking and gardens areas ideal for BBQs and summer evening entertaining as well as play areas for children or a paddock or two to explore.
Lower Damgate Farm is also home to Dovedale Animal Sanctuary and every animal (apart from Ozzi-Bear our dog) is rescued. Guests often go and say hello to our resident alpacas, goats and ponies and you can also feed them and interact with them if you choose. There are 22 acres that guests can use on the farm and going to see the animals as well as collecting eggs and feeding the goats and ducks is a lovely thing to do.
The price quoted is for the courtyard property, plus there is the option to book the Old B&B Rooms in the farmhouse. The price includes heating, linen and power. Pets are welcome in the courtyard property however we try and keep The Old B&B Rooms in the Farmhouse pet free, though with the farm being home to an animal sanctuary this isn't always easy!
The accommodation is comprised of the "Courtyard" Property (formally Reuben's Roost, Bremen's Barn and Hope's Hideaway) with 11 bedrooms, sleeping up to 22 in beds plus there is a sofa bed and some put up beds. The permanent beds all have linen and are made up to welcome you.
If your numbers are larger and you would like exclusive use then we can offer you The Old B&B rooms (Purdy's Place) at the end of the farmhouse (This is only a few spaces from the courtyard property) and adds another 2 bedrooms, bathroom and a living/kitchen area. This enables you to sleep an extra 5 guests in beds. In total we can sleep up to up to 28/30 guests in 13 bedrooms plus room for cots and a couple of put ups without linen.
Guests often wonder about the facilities, all the kitchens are large enough for you to provide cooking for everyone on site and we provide all the utensils and crockery for large group catering. Outside we have also built large stone BBQ's on the patio and decking areas which lead to the gardens and fields beyond. The cottages are self-catering; however we also provide some "helpful local information” which includes details of caterers and other things to do, especially as we are so close to Alton Towers and Chatsworth as well as the National Trust village of Ilam a mile down the road, with stunning walks and scenery straight from the doorstep taking in a few pubs and tea rooms on some amazing circular walks. If you would like the option of meals cooked for your stay or for that special occasion we can provide details for that and we can even order you a keg of local ale tapped and ready for when you arrive.
The cottages have often been described as a Tardis. The double bedrooms are all large enough to put a cot in and still move! The break off and other living rooms enable you to spread out if you need your own space and all have luxury furnishings and TV entertainment areas. We also have travel costs and highchairs and almost anything else you may need.
Our property is very rural and private, the views are stunning from the farm and you can walk directly to Dovedale, the Manifold valley and surrounding areas without the need of car. You can explore or walk to the local villages where there are great pubs and tea rooms. There are also 22 acres of grounds on the farm for you to enjoy, this includes gardens and seating areas with decking and outdoor furniture, as well as large stone built BBQs and a fire pit. If you have children in your party, there is a safe garden with little tykes play equipment for younger ones, and we mow a couple of large paddocks for outdoor games and activities and guests are welcome to explore the farm and pet or feed the rescued animals, especially our cheeky goats and alpacas as well as collect eggs from the hen house for breakfast.
In addition or for a special occasion or wedding we also have our Event Barn "Dovedale Barn" though this is very large and only used in the summer as it needs heating. There is also a Garden Room in the event Barn so in the summer if your requirements allow this may also be booked for smaller gatherings. Dovedale Barn and Garden Room are mainly used for our weddings (though please be assured, not whilst you are staying, unless it is yours!) Our events support Dovedale Animal Sanctuary and for a small donation to the Animal Sanctuary the barn can also be hired for smaller gatherings and parties, corporate and team building or conference meetings.
We also have a Hot tub in the sanctuary are and if the whole group would like to use it we charge £120 for the weekend and it will be cleaned and ready to go. Pre booking is essential.
Locally we are situated in one of the most beautiful parts of the Peak District, nestled between the Rivers Dove and Manifold both within walking distance from the farm with some lovely local pubs close by. We are surrounded by National Trust land and Ilam Park and tea rooms are just down the hill. The farm accommodation is ideal both inside and out or for everyone to be together or separate dependent upon their needs.
Our aim is to make is as comfortable and special as we can for all our guests so they can relax unwind and enjoy this part of the Peak Park and all it has to offer.
