  • “Overall the clockmakers is absolutely beautifully presented both inside and out.”

    It is obvious that care and attention has been poured into every aspect of the property and wonderful touches like the welcome gifts and the little tag notices and the information book were very much appreciated. It is a quirky old characterful building that has been decorated to maximise all these features. It is also very central but as it’s set back from the road it is very quiet.

    It is obvious that care and attention has been poured into every aspect of the property and wonderful touches like the welcome gifts and the little tag notices and the information book were very much appreciated. It is a quirky old characterful building that has been decorated to maximise all these features. It is also very central but as it’s set back from the road it is very quiet. Don’t worry that there is no onsite parking. There is a car park just 3 mins walk away that is completely free and you can load/ unload in the bay immediately opposite the house. The town itself is also lovely with lots to do(definitely try the Tissington Cycle Trail) and some great tea rooms, bars/ pubs and restaurants all in walking distance. The only minor detail is that the property is very compact and with 4 people 5ft 10 and over it was quite a squeeze. The single bed room is suitable for a child or an adult under 5ft 8. Seating 5 around the kitchen table would be a challenge. Would definitely go back if 2 couples or a couple and one adult.

The property

The Old Clockmakers is a 350 year old converted clockmakers workshop bursting at the seams with unique character and sitting in the very heart of the market town of Ashbourne in Derbyshire.

In 1912 clocks made here set sail on a ship called the Titanic!

Lined with period features including some of the exposed 18th century floorboards, guests will find themselves in an excellent central location moments away from bars and bistros. The ground floor of the property offers a well-equipped kitchen/diner; the antique wooden fittings have been rejuvenated with contemporary colours.

Next you will step into the heart-warming sitting room, its walls are dotted with old clocks while the welcoming set up is dominated by an enticing electric fire, housed in a stunning period fireplace.

A steep and narrow staircase brings you to the first floor where you will find a beautiful family bathroom with a shower over the bath completes the fabulous layout.

Adjacent to this rests a wonderful single bedroom featuring a stunning freestanding wardrobe, as its walls are lined with charming wallpaper.

This level concludes in style with a double bedroom, boasting a wildlife theme.

It also benefits from its own exquisite en-suite shower room.

Head up another level and be drawn into the captivating third and final bedroom; this king size room is graced with a splendid geographical theme and it too offers convenient en-suite facilities.

In the summer months, take advantage of the luscious exterior of this superb property, brimming with attractive plants and flowers with a selection of seating areas to enjoy with a refreshing drink in hand.

This is a one-of-a-kind property, perfect for a break exploring the peak district and all that it offers.

Step out of your front door and be immediately surrounded by Ashbourne's unique charm, lined with cobbled streets and old buildings, this traditional market town offers many fine spots to wine and dine, as well as offering an assortment of captivating antique shops.

Nearby, trek through the Peak District to luxuriate in wondrous walking and cycling country.

About the location

ASHBOURNE

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.
