The local pub is only a five minute walk from the pod so no need to drive. The host Jane and her husband were very friendly and made us feel welcome. Nice and quiet surroundings great place to stay for a relaxing getaway, Would definitely recommend.

  • "We had the most magical stay at No Deer."

    Jane was a wonderful host, when we arrived she greeted us to run through everything and communication was great from start to finish. We had a lovely surprise when entering the pod, a bottle of bubbly and some chocolates - they didn’t last too long! The pods are immaculate, cosy and have everything you need for a comfortable stay. The hot tub was just what was needed after a long day hiking, true bliss getting lost in natures sounds, we felt like we were the only people in the Peak District at times. Perfect location to travel around the peaks and only a 5 minute walk to the local pub. If you want to escape and soak up the country side this is the place to do it.

    Hi Rachel & Darren, it was a pleasure to meet you both and thank you so much for such kind words! We really appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback and would love to welcome you back again in the future. Kind regards Jane & Phil Property Owner

  • "Absolutely loved our 3 night stay at No Deer."

    From the second we arrived we knew we were going to enjoy it. The pod itself is immaculate and finished to a very high standard. Great kitchen facilities, very comfy bed and the bathroom fittings are all superb. The hot tub was amazing and was used for many hours and being able to sit out for tea with the deer watching was special. The host Jane was very attentive and the chocolates and fizz left on arrival added to that. There is a pub 5 mins walk away. We went for a walk to Rocster where there was a lovely farm shop and Ashbourne and Carsington Water is a short drive away for town shops and water sports. This place is a must stay if your in the peak District

    We are originally from the city so a rural break was exactly what we needed and I cannot recommend this place enough. The host was absolutely wonderful, nothing was too much trouble and they made us feel so welcome. The complimentary bottle of prosecco was a lovely addition.

    Everything was perfect from start to finish. The host came down to the pod shortly after we arrived and made sure we had everything we needed. She also told us that a new baby deer had been born that day, so we were thrilled when we managed to catch sight of it on our last day! The welcome pack was full of useful information and answered any possible question we had. We lit the hot tub shortly after arriving and this was ready for a relaxing dip before bed. All of the little extras (bathrobes, slippers, hairdryer) were brilliant too, as this saved us taking our own. Would happily recommend this place to anybody, the only bad part of the holiday was when we had to leave! perfect perfect perfect!!

About the location

ASHBOURNE

Matlock 15.7 miles; Bakewell 16.6 miles; Chatsworth 20.4 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 and for thrill seekers Alton Towers with its exciting collection of rides and attractions is just a short drive away.
