    “If you are staying in and cooking tea unfortunately the whole house smells of cooking as there is no extractor fan.”

About the property

Nestled in the traditional town of Ashbourne, King’s Cottage is a delightful terraced cottage that sits just steps away from the bustling Market Square.

With so much sitting on its doorstep, this cosy but charming old workers cottage provides a fantastic base for a break filled with scenic walks, outdoor adventures and plenty of restaurants and bars to enjoy dinner and a drink (or two).

Step inside this welcoming retreat and be greeted by a homely sitting area featuring a striking inglenook fireplace with a woodburning stove, perfect for snuggling up on the sofas on a cold winter's evening and enjoying your favourite television programmes.

The open plan ground floor provides the perfect opportunity to whip up a delicious dinner without missing any of the action, as well providing a wide range of handy utensils the kitchen also boasts a gas hob and electric oven.

Untie your walking boots and spend the early evening relaxing with a nice glass of something chilled in the private courtyard before climbing the winding staircase to the first floor.

Here you’ll find a spacious king-size bedroom featuring a decorative fireplace and storage where you can fold away the items from your case, not forgetting that all important place to hang your evening outfit.

The first floor is also home to a compact but well designed bathroom hosting both a full-length bath and overhead shower, so that you can choose how to best prepare for, and unwind from each day.

See the true delights of Derbyshire with days spent hiking through the Wolfscote Dale or embarking on an exhilarating cycle along Manifold Way, spotting the iconic Coffin Well and Dovedale Stepping Stones along the way, enjoy a tour of the National Trust owned Ilam Park Dovedale & the White Peak, or travel to Matlock and see The Great Masson Cavern and Heights of Abraham.

The popular theme park of Alton Towers sits within easy touring distance and is a favourite amongst thrill seekers, whilst The Peak Wildlife Park offers something for everyone to enjoy!

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.
