    • “We stayed here for week in September and it was lovely. It was just perfect for me and my husband and our 1 year old. Really close to Carsington waters and Bakewell and Ashbourne not far at all. The owner was lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Can highly recommend the puddings too! We will certainly be returning. Thank you for a lovely week.”

About the location


Matlock 14 miles.

Lying at the southern end of the Peak District, Ashbourne is a perfect example of an English market town - market place with stalls, 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 closeby. Alton Towers is just 20 minutes away.
