Owner's perspective - "We have really enjoyed living at Gate Farm for over 20 years. It’s been a happy family home with plenty of space for visitors and for all generations to entertain their friends both indoors and outdoors in the garden and yard. The sunsets we see from here are stunning, and we will never tire of the view across to Thorpe Cloud and the Peak District National Park.
It’s been a bonus to have the great combination of life in the country and the town that Gate Farm offers. Our children appreciated the short walk along the road to school and the freedom to be able to take themselves to activities in town. Being a modest walk from Ashbourne’s shops and cafes is a real treat for us all! Gate Farm is set in the glorious Derbyshire Dales with quiet country walks to discover and the Tissington Trail a short cycle away.
The field is an added bonus at Gate Farm – we kept pet goats for more than 10 years, and one of them became a twitter star! We have made a very productive fruit and vegetable patch and orchard, keeping our freezer well stocked.
We’ve loved living here, but now our children have flown the nest and it’s time for a new adventure for us too. We hope whoever buys this special place will enjoy it as much as we have. "
