Stay with us for the weekend of 6th September 2019 and there’ll be lots of excitement in the local town of Ashbourne.
Brand new this year, the inaugural Ashbourne Soapbox Race is on Sunday Sept 8th. The race will start on Union Street, turn the corner to go down the hill past the market place, and end on St John’s Street. Up to 60 teams are expected to take part reaching speeds of up to 30mph!
If you fancy entering a team get your application in by 10th May. You can find an entry form on the website. It will be just as much fun to come and watch though!
Taking place the same weekend is the CAMRA Ashbourne Beer & Cider Festival. Pop into the Town Hall to sample a wide selection of local ales and ciders. There’s also live music during the evening sessions.
If you’re looking for a place to stay for the weekend we have camping & touring pitches plus two holiday cottages and an apartment. Ashbourne town centre is within 20 minutes walk.
