    • “Orchard Cottage is in a lovely location with a very friendly pub just up the road(had to drive there due to dark country lanes). Very clean,warm,well equipped with log fire and outside space for chilling.Owners very approachable and helpful/cheerful.Convenient for alton towers and there are plenty of other attractions but a lot of driving.The bunk beds are good for kids but at my age,a trifle difficult to manage as my grandson was too young for the top bunk!This bedroom was a little small and not much space to move around or put anything away but we go for activities so managed well enough.Overall, was very happy with the place and it's good to have the option of cottages next door for more guests if required.Very happy overall.”

    • “The owner was helpful and friendly and the area was beautiful and as described. The cottage was gorgeous; exactly what I was looking for!”

    Miss Morris, Stockton-on-Tees, October 2015

    • “We loved the quiet location of this cottage, but also how we were not far from Ashbourne town centre, Alton towers and other amenities. The cottage had everything that we would need, to make our stay a home from home experience. The garden was fantastic for kids to run about safely. We would definitely recommend the cottage to anyone.”

    Mrs Duffy, Oban, July 2015

    • “The cottage was very nicely placed for exploring the south and mid Peak District National Park. It was in a quiet, easy to reach location. The cottage and the garden was excellent for the dogs, also there was a nice dog walk just outside the door.”

    Miss Styles, High Wycombe, May 2015

    • “The setting of this lovely cottage was perfect for our young family. The owners were relaxed and willing to allow the children to roam through the fields, use the trampoline, and visit the horses. It was a relaxing and fun week, spent outdoors in the sunshine. Proximity to Carsington Water, Dovedale and a lovely pub called 'The Rose and Crown' in Middle Mayfield made the holiday complete. Thank you.”

    Mrs Holdsworth, Chesham, April 2015

    • “The beautiful, tranquil setting. Very secluded and safe - our boys spent many hours running about outside and playing on the huge trampoline and swings. They also loved looking at the horses. The owner was lovely - very friendly, helpful and kind. A wonderful peaceful place to spend a week - lovely location.”

    Mrs Adams, Barnet, July 2014

    • “Fantastic cottage in a great location which was tranquil and very peaceful, but also close enough to be a great base for exploring the Peak District. We enjoyed days out at Dovedale, Carsington Water, Manifold bike trail, Ashbourne and Alton towers, all a short distance away. Also great to have a pub just up the road serving great food.”

    Mr Pettigrew, Hamilton, April 2014

    • “We could walk directly from cottage door to a great walk on the airfield. There was a lovely pub very close by and very welcoming. The owners of the cottage were very friendly and very welcoming. We are seriously considering returning in the summer next year.”

About the location


Ashbourne 3 miles.

Edlaston is a lovely rural hamlet just 3 miles from the beautiful market town of Ashbourne. Lying at the southern end of the Peak District, Ashbourne is a perfect example of a Derbyshire market town - there is a market place with stalls, an eccentric street plan, narrow cobbled alleys, coaching inns and almshouses. In its heyday in 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 in terms of restaurants and inns and is regarded as something of a haven for antique hunters - but don't expect a bargain! For those who prefer more outdoor pursuits, the Dove and Manifold Valleys are close by. Alton Towers is just 20 minutes away.
