An exciting opportunity to own a delightful approx. five acre property offering two barns, hard-standing, grazing for livestock, vegetable beds, polytunnel and woodland
The property is located in the quiet hamlet of Littlemoor on the outskirts of the village of Ashover and is surrounded by beautiful open countryside.
Ashover is an extremely popular and attractive Derbyshire village with excellent amenities, including a medieval church, community centre, Post Office, butcher, shops, doctors, public houses and primary school. Well-placed for the Derbyshire Dales and the Peak District it is in easy reach of the M1 and A38, giving easy access to local cities.
The property has been utilised as a smallholding, and has provided a bumper yield of produce for both their own use and for sale within the local community. They keep their own horses and sheep flock, as well as having vegetable and cut flower beds, a polytunnel and free range chickens. The vendors are also self sufficient in firewood, with the c. 1 acre of woodland to the rear boundary of the site. Generous wildlife margins have been left as habitat for a wonderful variety of flora and fauna, including wild orchids and hares.
The vendors have a vibrant and informative Instagram page which plots their lives on the farm and which potential purchasers are encouraged to visit to get a feel for the lifestyle opportunity that the property offers. It can be found at: horse_and_harvest_homestead

OUTBUILDINGS & LAND
A shared access entrance from the road leads via a galvanised gate to a hard-standing area with ample parking and turning space for multiple vehicles including a horse box / trailer if required.
There are Two Modern Farmplus Barn Buildings each measuring approx. 31’1 x 16’6 (c. 9.5m x 5m)
Within the planning permission for the site there is permission for a Further Barn c.30’ x 24’ (c.9.2m x 7.3m), a Feed Store 12’ x 12’ (c.3.6m x 3.6m) and a Commercial Polytunnel 60’ x 24’ (c.18.4m x 7.3m) Planning ref no: 20/00605/FL
The majority of the grazing land has sheep proof stock fencing along with some post and rail, and the land ranges between mainly flat and some gently sloping pasture. To the top of the slope is an area of established traditional woodland to the boundary which keeps the vendors supplied with firewood.
A grass trackway runs along the right hand boundary, owned by the property, which gives access to the top of the land. A Footpath runs along this trackway and through the woodland beyond. The vendor intends to keep an adjoining pony paddock to the right of this trackway and will require an easement / access over it. The purchaser will be offered this land on a first refusal basis should the vendor decide to sell in the future.
A separate area provides a good selection of Vegetable and Flower Beds and a Polytunnel. A recently planted area of Fruit Orchard contains cherry, plum, quince, pear and apple trees.
