The Sykes Cottages Guide To Ashbourne

Pin It

On a cottage holiday, a visit to Ashbourne is a must. Ashbourne is a delightful market town with a lovely cobbled centre filled with speciality stores, such as the Derwent Crystal and Ashbourne Gingerbread shops, and a high concentration of Antiques houses.

There are some fine Tudor and Georgian buildings to discover around the Shambles and the Market Square, the hub of the town where a market is held each Thursday, as well as a variety of pubs and eateries.

Ashbourne is famous for its fiercely-contested annual Shrove-Tide football match; a game of ‘traditional’ football played with a sawdust-filled leather ball, which engulfs the whole town over an entire afternoon and evening, as the goals lie some three miles apart along the Ashbourne valley.

Alton Towers is a well-known adventure theme park just a short drive from Ashbourne, and a very popular day out for all the family.
