“Don’t just book a house, book an experience with Ashbourne Self Catering”

Foxglove Cottage self catering holiday home for smaller hen parties in Derbyshire, England

From £60 pppn to £90 pppn based on 10 hens for a two night weekend stay, including use of the private hot tub. Add on a 3 course meal for an extra £30 per person.

Perfect for smaller Hen Weekends, Foxglove cottage offers a unique experience. A bespoke cottage for 8-10 hens, with a private hot tub in the garden.

The spacious ground floor gives plenty of entertaining space, with a large oak table and leather chairs for 10. The fully equipped self catering kitchen has the all important dishwasher (who wants to wash up!). With huge comfy sofas, a TV and DVD player, prepare for a girly night in!

Take the walkway from the first floor of Foxglove Cottage across to a private patio, where you can soak in the hot tub surrounded by beautiful gardens.
There are four bedrooms - three twin single rooms and one double bedroom. There is also a double sofa-bed in the open-plan lounge, should your weekend extend to 10 hens. A shower room and additional bathroom complete the first floor.

Foxglove Cottage is situated in the heart of Derbyshire, just 3 miles from the tourist town of Ashbourne with lots of bars and restaurants. It is only a short walk from Foxglove Cottage to a good village pub! If you are looking for a bar crawl or night out, it is an easy taxi journey to Derby city centre.
Afternoons can be spent outside on the private patio, with a BBQ and stunning rural views. You can even toast marshmallows around the fire pits in the garden. Add in the games room, with two full size snooker tables, air hockey and table tennis, and you'll find that there is plenty to keep you occupied!

Spoil yourselves even more and bring in pamperers, caterers or even a Butler In The Buff! We have recommendations for local activity providers, including gin tasting and artisan chocolate making.
If you would like to venture out, Alton Towers is just a short drive from Foxglove Cottage. Carsington Water is less than a mile away, where you'll discover cycling, kayaking and so much more. Standlow is on the doorstep of the Peak District, where adventurous hens can experience the great outdoors.

You name it, we can arrange it!
