About the location
Ashbourne 7 miles.
The quiet village of Boylestone rests on a steep hillock in the picturesque valley of Boylestone Brook, just 7 miles from Ashbourne. Steeped in history, the village is renowned for the bloodless Battle of Boylestone during the civil war, where royalist troops spent a nights shelter in St John the Baptists church before capture by Cromwell the following day. Today the heart of the village is based around the Rose & Crown, a welcoming 17th Century pub with real ales. Just 7 miles away, the traditional market town of Ashbourne, once a fashionable social centre in the 18th Century, boasts an eccentric street plan, quaint cobbled alleyways littered with old market stalls and welcoming coaching inns. Many fine Georgian buildings remain and host a good selection of restaurants and interesting antique shops. For those who prefer outdoor pursuits, the Dove and Manifold Valleys are close by offering excellent walking and cycling opportunities, whilst the thrills and spills of Alton Towers are just a short drive away.
