    “Great place to stay as very close to some of the best features of the Peak District.”

    Owner of cottage very helpful with information of the surrounding area. Would recommend the old blacksmiths to friends and family, nothing to do with the fresh cakes on the table when we arrived.

Corner House Farm Cottages

Two beautiful cottages set on the edge of the lovely village of Ashover in the valley of the River Amber, midway between Chesterfield and Matlock. The cottages are both over 200 years old and have been sympathetically renovated to provide modern living whilst preserving the original features. Ashover, Village of the Year in 2005, is one of the prettiest villages in Derbyshire and lies in the valley of the River Amber between Matlock and Chesterfield. Ashover was mentioned in the Domesday Book crediting the village with a church, a priest, several ploughs and a mill, with a taxable value of 30 shillings! It is also said that the village is home to a couple of ghosts, including the Laughing Cavalier who haunts the Black Swan! There is a huge choice of activities and days out within the area which lies on the edge of the Peak District National Park. For history buffs there are Bolsover Castle and Hardwick Hall, and the jewel in the crown; Chatsworth House and Estate. Haddon Hall was once described as ‘the most perfect English house to survive from the Middle Ages’ and it is now a very popular filming location. The Peak District was Britain’s first national park and the limestone and rugged upland terrain provides an endless scope for walking, cycling, horse riding, climbing, caving and so much more. According to the philosopher Thomas Hobbes back in 1636, there are seven wonders in this area; Poole’s Cavern and St Anne’s Well in Buxton, Peak Cavern and Mam Tor in Castleton, the Ebbing and Flowing Well in Tideswell, Eldon Hole and Chatsworth. All still very popular visitor attractions today. For families, Gulliver's Kingdom and Alton Towers make for a great day out. This area really does have something to offer everyone who visits.

The property

The Old Blacksmiths is a beautiful stone cottage and, as the name suggests, this delightful property used to be a blacksmith's workshop and the owner has imaginatively reflected its history in the décor.

The open plan living area is an inviting and sociable space, with a place to dine and cook.

The first floor has a lovely feel to it, with its sloping ceilings and pretty views across the paddock to the fields beyond.

The patio is a perfect spot to relax after a busy day exploring the area.

Note: This cottage can be booked with Ref. 927898, together they sleep 6.
