About Rosamond Woodrow
My husband and I have travelled widely, and lived in Kenya, for many years. We settled in Derbyshire in 1983. My husband owns his own accountancy practice in the local town, and I have recently got a degree in Fine Art. I am now a practising artist. We enjoy country pursuits, the garden, tennis and travelling. We also have a holiday home on the coast in Kenya, where we go as often as we can in the winter.
Rosamond Woodrow purchased this Cottage in 1984
Why Rosamond Woodrow chose East Staffordshire District
My husband came to work in this area. We love the countryside around here, all the hills and the villages. I also enjoyed eventing my horse for many years, and was able to keep horses. I have a great interest in art, and spend a lot of my time painting. We have also worked very hard to create an interesting garden, which guests are very welcome to enjoy.
What makes this Cottage unique
I am very happy to accommodate dogs on request, as there are lovely walks nearby. There is a newly installed hot tub with 32 jets, and a hard 'en tout case' tennis court. The property is very convenient for many attractions such as Alton Towers, and the Derbyshire stately homes. The Peak District is on our doorstep with all that it has to offer. We are also very near to Carsington Reservoir for water sports and walking and cycling. The cottage itself is unique in that it is situated in the grounds of an Edwardian country house and benefits from a well established and lovely garden. There is also a tennis court, croquet and climbing frame and swing for children. Convenient for Ashbourne, Buxton and Bakewell, and 3 airports not far away, East Midlands, Birmingham and Manchester
