The property

This hidden gem of a cottage, Lorash, is tucked away along a cobbled lane in the heart of Ashbourne, Derbyshire.

Lorash not only offers a family of four reverse-level accommodation in a charming part of Derbyshire but rests a short distance from the Peak District National Park and Alton Towers.

Upon arrival, park in the kindly provided permit space in the marketplace, before wandering up the cobbled lane to this delightsome home-away-from-home.

As you enter the property, you will find a king-size bedroom enjoying elegant furnishing along with access to an en-suite shower room, cross the hallway to find a lovely twin; both bedrooms offer storage for your belongings.

Climb the stairs to find a charming living/dining room that offers a light and airy space to relax in, thanks to its Velux windows; switch on the electric fire and TV, settle down on the seating and enjoy some quality time with your loved ones.

Move across the first floor to find a well-equipped kitchen, where the designated chef will be happy to find a good range of appliances, as well as a handy washing machine.

When a mouth-watering meal has been served, it can be enjoyed next door at the dining table whilst you catch up on the day's events.

In the warmer months, the courtyard acts as a delightful suntrap, so why not enjoy a spot of alfresco dining and catch some rays?

A swift walk down the cobbled path will bring you to your amenities, including sizeable selection of pubs, eateries and shops to suit all tastes; on Thursdays the town hosts a bustling market a stone's throw from the cottage, so you can browse an array of local wares and take something special home from your stay!

A scenic drive will bring you to Matlock, home to the renowned Peak Rail, where rides throughout the dramatic scenery can be enjoyed on a steam engine, along with an established golf club, Matlock Bath Aquarium, Gulliver's Kingdom and the Heights of Abraha; there's something for everyone here.

Further afield you will find the village of Ticknall, with its Limeyards fishing lake, the close-by Staunton Harold Reservoir with its sailing opportunities and Calke Abbey offering an idyllic outing.

A day out in Bolsover awaits, with Bolsover Castle, Castle Leisure Park and Carr Vale Nature Reserve waiting to be explored.

Those seeking a bit of adventure can travel towards the centre of the Peak District, where caves, peaks and kayaking await.

For a break to remember, look no further than Lorash.

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.
