In stunning countryside near Ashbourne, there are 3 exclusive Mulino pods to choose from, Bluebell and the pet-friendly pods Damson and Lavender. They boast fantastic views and are located on a working animal farm on the edge of the Peak District. Bluebell and Damson Pods can sleep either 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children. Lavender Pod can sleep up to 4 adults or 2 adults and 4 children.

You can escape to the peace and quiet of the rural farm yet be within easy reach of Ashbourne (3 miles) and nearby cities of Derby, Nottingham and Sheffield. There is also a pub within walking distance, cycle routes on the doorstep, and Carsington Water in view!

All of the facilities at Mulino Lodge Farm were built with quality in mind with cedar cladding, fully insulated and eco-powered by the farm wind turbine. Therefore visiting the farm can be enjoyable at any time of the year.

On entering the pods through the french doors you will find a comfy double bed with clean bedding, futons, a small fridge, toaster, kettle (along with all the basics to make yourself a warm beverage), Eco-power points, lighting, an optional heater and plenty of storage space. There are 2 individual luxury bathrooms, outdoor covered kitchen area and a useful 'info room' with super-fast wifi, toys for the kids and other great things.

The large glass doors allow you to admire the stunning countryside views while having shelter from the weather. Outside the pods, there is seating and a table, a BBQ area and use of a firepit plus a drinking water station. It is easy to reconnect with nature with such incredible views of the rolling hills and with the possibility of sheep roaming past nearby. Tours around the farm for adults and/ or children can be arranged.

A maximum of 2 well-behaved dogs are welcome in the Damson and Lavender pods but must stay on a lead at all times as there are farm animals roaming around nearby. Dogs cost £25 each per stay. A travel cot, high chair and additional bedding are available upon request.

Prices for a 2-night weekend stay start from £220 for Friday to Sunday (including extended departure time of up to 5pm on the Sunday) or from £160 for any 2 midweek nights (prices may vary). Please note that these prices are based on 2 people sharing the double bed. Additional guests cost £30 per stay. Look out for our Autumn/Winter offers and last minute availability deals. If you are a group then please enquire about a whole site booking. The site can sleep 10 adults in total or 6 adults and 8 children, perfect for celebrating Hen do's or family parties.
