  • "Loved our stay here."

    Immaculately clean and everything we needed had been thought of and more! Such a fabulous location for a week’s break with great shops, cafes, pubs and places to eat on your doorstep. The bed in particular was really comfy and we could have happily stayed another week. Perfect stay for a couple and parking was no problem at all with the free 24hr car park just around the corner. Highly recommend and already looking at dates we could return!

  • "Nice cottage and location."

    Only suggestion: perhaps needs more cooking utensils i.e. pots and pans.

  • "Fantastic little cottage for 2 people."

    Location was brilliant for cycling and walking as well as eating and drinking. Booked at the last minute due to a cancellation and communication with owner was excellent. Everything you need is provided - great value!

  • "A 5 star stay as usual."

    It’s lovely to return and know everything will be perfect. Really appreciate the small stuff like hairdryer, supplies so you can have a cuppa when you get there, the dishwasher tablets, the extra loo rolls, lovely personalised texts so you know when the cottage is ready as well as all the extra comfortable things like the throws, and the firelight, the soft towels the comfy bed, the deep bath, all make a difference. We’ll be back, hopefully often!

  • "I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at End Cottage in Ashbourne."

    It was very cosy and comfortable. It also had most of the utilities needed to prepare meals and the location was excellent, with various pubs and restaurants in walking distance. It was quite tricky to find being tucked away off the square, therefore perhaps a few additional instruction to find the place would have been helpful. In general I had a very good stay and would recommend to others staying in the area.

  • "A second visit to this cosy well equipped cottage in the centre of Ashbourne."

    The bed is soooo comfortable and we love the deep bath, in fact everything about this snug characterful cottage. We’d been before and will certainly come again. It’s also really central with everything on the doorstep and we appreciated all the little touches (like some decorations for our December visit) and the welcome pack on arrival. I just hope by recommending it doesn’t get so busy we can’t get back!!!

    Jo provided a lovely welcoming surprise. We were not walking during this trip as hubby recovering from knee replacement but he did use the local pool which was within his walking distance and he said facilities were good. We will certainly be back when he can cover a greater distance.

  • "This was a well appointed cottage in the centre of Ashbourne and was extremely comfortable and well maintained and very clean."

    A few small improvements I would suggest is net curtains on the downstairs sitting room window as everyone passing looks in and a blind fillets to the upstairs dressing room. All I all it was a very nice cottage and an ideal base to explore the southern Derbyshire Dales area and for cycling in the many trails

  • "Lovely comfortable place to stay."

    Cottage very clean and tidy. Only thing I would say is a little roman blind on the glass panel of front door would make it even more cosy, bit difficult to fit by a door but doable. Good local places to eat. Would go again and recommend to family and friends.

  • "Really convenient in the centre of Ashbourne yet hidden and quiet."

    We bought a week’s parking token as parking near the cottage was too intimidating! Everyone we met was very welcoming. The cottage seems brand new and was spotlessly clean. Most things were provided and I am probably being fussy to want a dustpan and brush ( I bought one to tidy up at the end!), a serrated bread knife and some egg cups ( boiled eggs are cheap and easy!). I would also have appreciated some simple instructions to work the oven, extractor fan and the vacuum cleaner - but perhaps I am not very tech savvy? My son’s father in law was so impressed with the cottage that he said he would be telling his sister to rent it when she visited Ashbourne. We would highly recommend End Cottage for a stay in this popular tourist area. We would also highly recommend’Le Mistral’ bistro in Wirksworth where the church is well worth the visit.

    We were greeted with an unexpected welcome gift of prosecco, bread, milk and local gingerbread. It was tastefully decorated and furnished and fully equipped as a home should be. The cottage was in a perfect location for accessing the town, the Peak District and surrounding areas. We will certainly be visiting again. Thank you :-)

About the location


Matlock 14 miles, Ticknall 24.7 miles, Bolsover 33.5 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 close by. Alton Towers is just 20 minutes away.
