    Ideal location for visits. We went to Dovedale which is very pretty, Kedleston Hall (well worth a visit), also the recommended circular walk around Shirley and Ormaston is enjoyable with two pubs to choose from. Mobile phone connection in the cottage is poor and there is no wifi. This didn't affect us but it may be essential for others.

About the location


Ashbourne 6 miles.

The quiet little village of Longford, settled six miles south of Ashbourne, remains particularly unspoilt with a pretty church. Nestling amongst Derbyshire’s attractive rural landscape, visitors to Longford can enjoy the many footpaths from the village, and within easy reach, the numerous surrounding attractions and traditional towns of the Peak District. Close by is the quaint market town of Ashbourne. Once a fashionable social hub in the 18th century, Ashbourne is rich with original cobbled lanes, old market stalls and grand Georgian buildings lining the streets, home to a good selection of restaurants, interesting shops and traditional coaching inns. For those who prefer outdoor pursuits, the National Trust’s Dovedale Valley, a renowned beauty spot, can be reached within a pleasant drive of Longford, offering excellent walking and cycling opportunities amongst spectacular scenery, whilst an exhilarating day out at Alton Towers is just a short drive away.
