    “What is not to love about Lion House?”

    It was absolutely wonderful. So much space, and all the items in the house that you could want, including toilet roll, kitchen roll, washing up liquid, etc.

    It was absolutely wonderful. So much space, and all the items in the house that you could want, including toilet roll, kitchen roll, washing up liquid, etc. Yes, the main road out the front is very noisy, but you get used to it. The off road parking was plenty for 2 cars. Everything is in walking distance in the town. Friends Cafe does amazing cake! :) I absolutely recommend Lion House to anyone and I would love to return one day! We had an amazing stay and I did not want to leave.

The property

Boasting a superb position in the market town of Ashbourne and within striking distance of the majestic Peak District National Park, is the elegant retreat, Lion House.

Steeped in history, being over 400 years old, the property benefits from modern spacious living accommodation which has been fully modernised by the current owners.

This stylish accommodation has been designed to bring together a family of six to this splendid location for a relaxing break or an action-packed adventure.

Upon entering the property, you are welcomed by the contemporary interior, housing all the essentials you could possibly need, in addition to quality features to ensure a memorable stay for a group of all ages and tastes.

Spend your wind down time within the large sitting room, where you can curl up on the plush sofas which rest in front of the TV and the traditional feature fireplace.

Or retreat into the cosy snug for a quiet read or pre dinner drink.

Younger guests will be delighted to find a well-stocked games room, where hours of entertainment can be enjoyed playing on the games consoles, enjoying some more traditional games or just chilling out with a book on the comfy bean bag chairs.

Continuing to impress is the well-equipped kitchen, housing all the essentials you could possibly need to whip up your own delicious meal.

Choose between eating more informally at the large round kitchen table or (assuming it is not taken up with board games or a jigsaw) in the dining area overlooking the lounge.

As the evening draws to a close, venture up the staircase to find three elegantly-styled bedrooms, comprising of a king-size double with an en-suite, a double with an en-suite, a twin bedroom and a family bathroom (with bath and overhead shower), ensuring flexible sleeping and bathing arrangements to suit the requirements of your group.

If the weather is kind Lion House has a tremendous outside space.

Enjoy a bit of alfresco dining on the beautiful dining table outside the kitchen or perhaps a morning coffee and croissant from the nearby bakery on one of the elevated terraces.

Views of Ashbourne can be seen from the top terrace whilst relaxing on some comfy sofas.

However, if you don’t feel like cooking one evening,Lion House is just a few steps away from a superb selection of cafes, pubs, restaurants and takeaways to suit all tastes, as well as a number of shops for picking up the essentials.

For those looking to explore, you will find miles of walks upon the Peak District National Park, where you will find the Dovedale valley and the peak of Thorpe Cloud.

Lion House is also just around the corner from the start of the Tissington Trail, a thirteen mile traffic free trail ideal for a relaxing walk or ride (bikes can be hired from the trail centre).

Alternatively, spend an afternoon at the National Trust property of Ilam Park, spend some time on the water at Carsington Reservoir or for those thrill seekers Alton Towers is within close reach..

About the location


Matlock 14 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.
