Quick – 6 days available in August to experience the ‘purple carpet’

August 10th 2022

Ilderton Dod Barns is in the centre of our 1800 acre hill farm, also used as a grouse moor. Heather can be an enemy when it comes to grazing livestock, but right now it’s purple hume is spectacular.

We still have 6 nights available this August (23-29th), but a shorter stay within this period is possible. If the recent high temperate are putting you off venturing out, perhaps an autumn stay would be more appealing. With no minimum stay and no set check in day, it’s very flexible. The properties are for sole use and although they sleep up to 8, even smaller groups find it’s good value for money.
