Guest Reviews


    • “Excellent”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Set in lovely woodlands makes you feel a million miles away but in truth there are lots of attractions very close at hand- giving you the best of both worlds. The property is very well kept and clean, with a log fire in the lounge area and a good size kitchen with lots of work space. The dining table is long with benches but it can get cramped- we solved this by using the chairs from outside and sat them at each end, which helped a lot. There are various bedrooms, including two on the ground floor (suitable for anyone with mobility problems). Bathrooms on both levels with lots of very hot water. Only a couple of niggles - there are ample plates, dishes, cups etc however there was a lack of cooking utensils which made catering for the whole party somewhat difficult. The dishwasher was not fantastic and there were no tea towels... but these are our only complaints! We had a fabulous stay and certainly hope to return!”

    • “This was a fabulous holiday lodge in a brilliant location. Tweleve of us fitted in there very comfortably! The house is well equipt and the bathrooms are lovely. Although in October the weater was a bit cold you would never have known as inside it was lovely and warm. Very good service from property owners and the properties are obviously well looked after. The only bad point is that we had to leave to come home!!! Will definitely be returning in the near future, we have taken away really happy memories with us!!”

About the location


Alton Towers 2.5 miles; Ashbourne 12 miles.

The beautiful wooded hamlet of Ramshorn is just a 20-minute walk from the pedestrian entrance of the ever-popular Alton Towers. Britain's number one theme park, Alton Towers has rides and attractions aimed at everyone. And at the Alton Towers Resort, the fun continues all year round at the fabulous waterpark at Cariba Creek, the Alton Towers Spa (Pamper Day packages available), or by enjoying a round of Extraordinary Golf. With so much going on and regular seasonal events, the Alton Towers resort is a fabulous day out, no matter what the time of year, and so conveniently close to the Ramshorn Wood. Once you've had your fill of the thrills and spills, head for the nearby lovely market town of Ashbourne, with its eccentric street plan and narrow cobbled alleys, which features an array of delightful antique stores and a choice of good pubs and restaurants. Attractions like Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Dovedale, and the fantastic Derbyshire Villages Ilam, Hartington and Tissington - famous for the well dressings - are also within easy reach. The area offers so much variety in the way of outdoor pursuits - hire bicycles to take advantage of the region’s many famous cycle trails, relax with a round of golf on one of the superb courses, have a go at rock-climbing or pot-holing, or swap two legs for four and see this beautiful part of the country from horseback. Alternatively, take advantage of the many wonderful walks for all abilities which criss-cross the spectacular Peak District and Derbyshire Dales countryside. The perfect destination for all ages.
