    “Celebrating our 21st Wedding ...”
    Celebrating our 21st Wedding anniversary, we decided to try and find a quiet place away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Although it was short and brief 2 night stay due to work commitments this little place is amazing.. from the second we arrived to leaving we couldn't have wished for anything more relaxing. Accommodation was absolutely fabulous, proper home from home surrounded by peace and tranquillity. Thank you for our complimentary cake (which didn't survive the weekend) and ...

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.
