About the location


Ashbourne 8 miles; Alton Towers 10 miles.

The delightful village of Alstonefield lies on the borders of Derbyshire and Staffordshire between the valleys of the Dove and the Manifold Rivers. A village of real charm and character, Alstonefield has won the 'Best Kept Village Award' ten times (most recently in 2005) and been in the final of the 'National Village of the Year' award in 1998 - a remarkable achievement. A lovely village, it has a truly delightful country pub set on the village green and is surrounded by lovely verdant green countryside. The Manifold River cuts a course through superb scenery and is a delight for both walkers and cyclists with the 'Manifold Trail' following the route of the old Leek to Manifold Light Railway. Nearby are pretty Ilam and Hartington with nice pubs and a wide range of shops and cafes, whilst further afield are the market towns of Ashbourne and Leek.

Lovely cottage in perfect place.

Mrs McLennan, Ely, October 2013

This cottage is located in a lovely village, but with a pleasant rural outlook, and is very well located for touring and walking in the region. It offered a comfortable and welcoming retreat at the end of a day of activities.

Prof Lawrance, Elermore Vale, June 2013

The property was clean and very well presented. They had thought of every thing. Very peaceful and gorgeous views.

Miss Orme, Dudley, February 2013
