  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful cottage."

    The house is gorgeous and almost everything you need has been thought of and provided for you to enjoy your stay. The only thing we missed having was a washing machine and washing line. The garden is a little oasis, we were so lucky to have good weather as we sat out every night til late. Ashbourne is a beautiful town, and everyone is so friendly, we worried about the parking at first but once we tried the free carpark up the road and found it to be OK we were fine. We would love to come back and stay again in this beautiful house.

  • "The cottage was very welcoming on arrival."

    Su the owner has thought of everything that the holiday maker might need. Spotlessly clean and full of character and personality. Although set in the centre of town we weren't disturbed at all by any traffic noise. . The garden provided a private space with plenty of seating. All told it is a property that we would definitely return to.

  • "We arrived to find a lovely CD playing and the side light in the sitting room was turned on, it was a really nice welcome."

    We loved the cottage and garden and Su the owner had written lovely little helpful notes about the cottage, the garden and local amenities. The only downside which is understandable in a cottage is the bed was a double size and my partners feet stuck out of the end so beware if you are a tall person. I would recommend the cottage, it is delightful, well equipped and the garden is very pretty.

    Not overly practical though to live in, needs bit of a declutter. Didn't mess with heating but seemed to be on/off at strange times? Had a lovely week though travelling around wonderful countryside.

  • "A lovely little quirky cottage very close to the market square in Ashbourne."

    Extremely handy for shops, cinema, restaurants etc. The owner left some nice little touches like, milk in the fridge, a bottle of wine and biscuits and other treats. Very thoughtful. The steps are a bit tricky if your not good on your pins. 4 of us stayed and during our stay there were two double rooms and 1 single room but now for some reason they are no longer going to use the top double bedroom. Don't expect large but the rooms are adequate and comfortable with a very well equipped kitchen.

    Cute and quirky and right in the town near to all the shops. It was equipped with everything we needed, the beds were really comfy and free parking a few minutes up the road. Lovely welcome note and some essentials to keep us going was a nice touch. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

  • "The Old Clock Makers is a lovely place to stay, spotlessly clean and well provisioned with everything you need to enjoy your holiday."

    The garden is beautiful and a real sun trap when the weather is good. The only downside would be the steep and winding stairs - not really an issue for us (other than getting heavy suitcases to and from the top floor) but could be a problem for anyone with mobility issues. Obviously this was clearly set out in the listing so it didn't come as a surprise. Ashbourne itself is a fabulous place and a great centre of operations to explore the surrounding area - there are loads of great pubs and some really nice restaurants, as well as a range of lovely independent shops. Based on previous reviews we were slightly concerned about parking but it really isn't an issue - there was always space in the loading bay outside the property when we needed it and the park is just up the road with ample space and no restrictions at all. Highly recommend the town of Ashbourne and the accommodation.

    Owners have thought of everything, so well equipped. Quirky is a good description (in a nice way). Yes the stairs are narrow but just care is needed. Ashbourne is a lovely place with plenty of eating places and shops near the property. Would recommend the Greenman for drinks and food.

  • "I will start with the negatives first, as some people booking this delightful cottage may wish to know some details."

    Firstly, parking. The description that "Off-road parking" available is accurate in the same way that "Off road parking" is available to a man on the moon, it just happens to be back on earth! Parking is only (legally) available on the road outside the property between the hours of 7pm and 8am, which happens to be 2 hours AFTER arrival time and 2 hours BEFORE booking out. There is a free, no restrictions, car park available but it is a 5 minute walk away in Cokayne Avenue. Secondly, the stairs. Some of the treads are narrow and winding so take care. Having said all that, the cottage is clean, comfortable, quirky and a delight. Lovely courtyard garden too. A wonderful break, once you got used to leaving your car out of sight in a public car park. And yes, I probably would book it again.

    Perfect for exploring whilst giving you some own space. Park opposite fantastic… Sticky Fingers Pottery great fun… and the Towns Treasure Trail was a lovely adventure to properly discover the town. With its lovely shops and eateries we would definitely go back!

  • "Stunning property, superbly located for shops and restaurants."

    Perfect for our party of four but you’d possibly struggle for space with any more than that. Every need was catered for by the owner, no need to take cleaning essentials or hangers! Sadly, one of our party suffers with respiratory problems so the steep stairs became a chore. However, don’t let that put you off as we all had a very enjoyable week and would gladly stay there again. Thank you Su.

    Spotlessly clean with lots of interesting nooks and crannies. The space is quite cosy for 4 adults but you soon become used to the space especially when you can use the beautiful garden. Parking was so easy you can unload outside then park for free a few hundred yards away. We will not forget our time there.

    Ashbourne is a very good base, with plenty of places to eat and some good walks.

We went at Christmas and the owner had decorated it beautifully. Overall would highly recommend.

  • "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. 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.

  • "We had a lovely time at the Old Clock Makers."

    The owners obviously love the property and there are many unique features that continue to surprise you as you notice them throughout your stay. We were really happy with the stay and the welcome gifts left by the hosts were a much appreciated touch. Despite a busy main road with many lorries, from where the cottage is located behind a building also on this road, it was surprisingly quiet. The only constructive feedback we can offer is that it would be nice to have a firepit or similar for the garden. It was a slightly cold week and with only being able to drink outside pubs due to current lockdown protocol, it would be nice to get he best of both at the cottage, with sitting outside but with some warmth. We apologise about leaving food in the fridge, miscommunication between the two of us that was not realised until we got home. We saw a note about a new cottage the owner will be opening later in the year, we will happily visit this setting also based on this experience, we really did have a wonderful time. Thank you.

    What a beautiful little cottage! The little extras provided by Su were most welcomed after a long journey for our family travelling to Ashbourne from Belgium. Access to the property was really easy and we were able to have an early check in which was greatly appreciated after setting off from Belgium at 2am! The accommodation is so homely, warm and comfortable. The beds were so comfortable and our family said they had slept so well! The accommodation is on 3 floors and although the stairs were high our family thought it amazing and wanted to stay on an extra week! A gorgeous little garden is also attached to the property and considering it’s by the road it is so very quiet and peaceful. The girls were even treated to snow during their visit....!! Located in the centre of Ashbourne everything you need is within walking distance - shops, restaurants, cafes and bars, the park with a great play area ....... something for the whole family.

  • "At the end of a long journey through Ireland and the UK my husband and I spent 3 nights at the Clockmakers Cottage."

    It was a wonderful experience and we enjoyed our stay there very much. The cottage was very clean, the kitchen well equipped and the beds are very comfortable. One can feel the passion and the love for detail which the owner has spent on the cottage; the interior is very tastefully done. As we entered the cottage soft music was playing and in the kitchen a whole lot of goodies were waiting for us. Delicious scones with clotted cream and fresh strawberries to name just a few of the things left for us. A real treat. Also in the bathrooms there are soaps, body lotions, shampoos,etc...all little extras one would not expect. Although in the middle of town it is very quiet and the cottage has a nice little garden with a table and chairs for outside dining if weather permits. The only little criticism I would have is that there is no washing machine or perhaps we did not find it. In the end it was not important to us so we did not call the owner to ask. The seating facility in the lounge is good for 3 adults and a child, in our opinion, with 5 adults it would be rather tight. Ashbourne is a charming little town which has everything you need. The area is great for hiking and we visited some lovely villages nearby and explored the Peak District. We would certainly come back and can truly recommend this lovely cottage.

When we arrived, the house had been beautifully decorated for Christmas and plentiful goodies were left out for us on the table. It really was the warmest welcome. Unfortunately, we had a minor mishap with a lock to the outside shed but, after a quick phone call, the owner's husband came and fixed it for us while we restored ourselves at the pub. The house is small (we were five adults and it was a bit of a squeeze), but utterly charming and my brother (who knows about such things) said that it was the best equipped house rental kitchen he had ever seen. All in all, we had a lovely time and this lovely house played a huge part in making what may well be our last Christmas with our parents very special.

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.

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