Ashbourne 4 miles.
The pretty village of Thorpe lies where the River Manifold meets the River Dove and is dominated by the wonderful conical hill of Thorpe Cloud - a 1000ft limestone hill which guards the entrance to Dovedale. It was the arrival of LNER'S Ashbourne to Buxton line that really started the Thorpe tourist boom. Today, the railway is no more, but every year, thousands of visitors make the journey to Dovedale - one of England's most famous and photographed beauty spots. Thorpe itself has two country house hotels with bar and restaurant, and a pub, whilst further amenities are available in the many nearby villages - Ilam, Tissington, Longnor and Hartington. A fabulous area for outdoor pursuits, the famous Tissington Trail is located close by, little over a mile to the east of the village. The nearby market town of Ashbourne - once a fashionable social centre of 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, hosting a good selection of restaurants, wine bars and interesting antique shops. A great touring base, with Alton Towers just a short drive away!

Previous visitors' comments about The Rest:
Lovely area. Convenient for exploring Peak District. The cottage lived up to the description and actually exceeded our expectations. Would highly recommend.
Mrs Metcalf, Nottingham, May 2013
Very cosy cottage of a very high standard. The cottage was beautifully warm despite the deep snow outside! Hot tub particularly enjoyed by all.
Mrs Grima, Cardiff, March 2013
In an area where there was plenty to do, cottage was good for self-catering but plenty of pubs and takeaways nearby if you didn't want to cook. Loads of scenic walks. The hot tub was very enjoyable and well looked after.
Mr Truscott, West Byfleet, November 2012
Lovely well equipped cottage in a stunning location. The hot tub was bliss after a days walking! Owner very friendly and helpful. Probably the best holiday home we have ever stayed in, fantastic!
