  • "A clean and comfortable 3 bedroom cottage with a dining room and small enclosed back garden."

    There is enough crockery and cooking equipment to feed 5. Half size dishwasher and a washing machine. Good wifi. Beds are comfortable and there was enough hot water for us all to shower. There are nearby (walkable) supermarkets and cafes/pub restaurants. 20 min to Alton Towers. Cycle paths and country walks. The cottage is on a busy road to the front but there is double glazing so it’s not too noisy and a pavement so it’s safe to walk.

About the location


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 collecting of rides and attractions is just a short drive away.
