Ashbourne 6 miles.
Steeped in history and situated at the southern end of the Peak District, the lovely village of Hollington, mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, provides home to a scattering of traditional brick built cottages, old farmhouses and barn conversions, whilst being surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside and offering a number of country pubs renowned locally for excellent service and fine cuisine. Nearby Ashbourne is the perfect example of an English market town, boasting an eccentric street plan, narrow, cobbled alleys, old market stalls and many fine coaching inns. In its heyday, during the 18th century, the town was a fashionable social centre and many fine Georgian buildings remain from this period. Today the town still has much to offer with a good selection of restaurants, whilst being regarded as something of a haven for antique hunters - but don't expect a bargain! For those who prefer outdoor pursuits, the Dove and Manifold Valleys are close by offering good walking and cycling, whilst Alton Towers is just 25 minutes away!

Previous visitors' comments about The Retreat:
It was a lovely quiet area and and a peaceful setting. Ideal for a relaxing break, but not too far from local pub and restaurant and other amenities, and our hosts were very friendly.
Mr Kirk, Leicester, February 2013
The hosts both made us feel like it was a home from home with a warm welcome and the feeling nothing was any trouble to them. The cottage was an excellent size, well kept and quiet but within easy striking distance of the tourist areas.
Mr Wilkinson, Washington, October 2012
I thought the location was an excellent gateway to the Peak District. The hosts were very welcoming and the property was to a very good standard. We had a great time!
Mr Betts, Norwich, July 2012
Lovely location, rural but near to Ashbourne. Our son loved the friendly animals!
