Ashbourne Holiday Cottage Accommodation.
Moore’s Cottage Farm, near the historic market town of Ashbourne, provides a comfortable holiday cottage in peaceful surroundings that are close to all the major Peak District attractions and Alton Towers.

The Irish lyric poet, Thomas Moore (1779- 1852), a friend of Lord Byron,  published his most famous Irish Melodies when he lived in the Farmhouse.

The romantic beauty in the summer enchanted him. "I have my chair and book
in the garden and stay out for whole hours."

Last Rose Cottage (named after one of his well known songs) is a converted barn & has 3 bedrooms. It has fine exposed beams and is well equipped and comfortably furnished in a style matching the character of the building.  It is the red- brick building in the centre of the top picture.

The Cottage is ideal for people wanting a rural & safe location with lovely views, on a small hobby farm with Jacob sheep and poultry. There is an outdoor play area  in the gardens close to the Cottage with swings & a sandpit. Pets are welcome and there is direct access to the field for walks.

Last Rose has easy walking access as most of the accommodation is on the ground floor with only 2 steps to negotiate.

Visitor Comments
Mr & Mrs Hayes – Leigh on Sea
“We think Moores Cottage Farm is absolutely fabulous. We have been staying at Last Rose Cottage for the last 9 years, but nothing else we have tried is as good and friendly. With three generations to cater for, there is something for everyone. Each visit comes up with something new. Ashbourne is the gateway to the Dales for cycling, climbing, walks,. With Chatsworth, Go Ape, Caves and Waterworld nearby there is so much to do. It is a special farm and accommodation, and whenever we book up we are guaranteed a very warm welcome from Janet.”
