The attractive and unspoilt conservation village of Brassington is perched on a hillside on the outskirts of the Peak District National Park in the midst of glorious open countryside. It is a traditional Peaks, limestone village with many cottages dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries. There are two pubs (both serving good food), and further amenities are available in nearby Matlock, Ashbourne and Bakewell. Close by is beautiful Carsington Water, covering 750 acres with some of the best sailing in the country. The site also offers boating, biking and windsurfing, along with shops, a restaurant and a children’s adventure playground. An excellent base for exploring the Peak District.

Previous visitors' comments about Ramblers' Rest:
Excellent welcome, care and attention from owners. They invited us in for a wedding anniversary meal when we were snowed up! In the bitterly cold weather, the cottage was warm and draught-free. Location was excellent. Lovely village church and pub
Rev Gardiner, Haywards Heath, March 2013
Best possible use made of the space, beautifully decorated with nice touches to make it homely and comfortable. It was nice to have somewhere so cosy and warm to come back to.
Mrs Kinnersley, Spalding, March 2013
Ramblers Rest was a delightful cottage, and though it was a small apartment it managed to be light, spacious and airy. We enjoyed staying in it very much.
Brassington is a lovely village with two delightful pubs selling good food and beer. There were also many walks from the front door of the cottage.
Ms Golberg, Kenilworth, November 2012
The location was perfect for us. It was so cosy and warm, very clean and comfortable and the owners were lovely friendly people. Some good walks from the cottage and lots more just a car ride away.
