    “Location is lovely and the house could be but needs some work.”

    No curtains or blinds in one bathroom which makes it not useable. Sofas worn and uncomfortable. One of stairs broken. Toilet seat broken. When we arrived house was dirty. Carpets dirty didn’t look like they had been hoovered. Cobwebs were in a a number of places. Worst place was bedrooms with lots of dust and cobwebs behind bed and bedside tables. There was even a used tissue behind one bedside table. The organisation by Sykes was excellent but this property lets you down as a company in its ...

The property

Nestled alongside the scenic River Wye, this delectable semi-detached dwelling makes the perfect base for a family to explore the delights of the Peak District National Park and beyond.

Built in 1929, the property still holds many of its traditional features including a stone slab roof, boasting a lot of charm and character.

Step inside to the well fitted kitchen area, holding all the appliances you could need for your self-catered stay, making it the perfect place to rustle up all your family-favourite meals when you’re not enjoying one of the delicious dining options in Ashford-in-the-Water.

Off the kitchen are three doors and a cloakroom, one being home to the dining room holding an electric fire, ideal for bringing everyone together in the evenings, and on the left is the sitting room with a gas fire, where you can recline and unwind before heading upstairs to your resting spots.

The dwelling is home to three bedrooms, including a king-size with an en-suite bathroom, a double, and a 4’ double including a family bathroom, offering a marvellous layout for a family or small group of friends looking for the most scenic spots in the Peak District.

On each of the bedroom doors you will find a plaque holding a fishing theme, being the original features from when the property was part of the annex in the centre of the sought after riverside village of Ashford in the Water, situated some 2 miles from the historic Peak District Town of Bakewell, ensuring that the quirk of the property is carried throughout.

The first-floor is also home to a family bathroom as well as a traditional bathroom which hosts a lavish Jacuzzi bath, great for a soak after a busy day of exploring the countryside.

To the back of the property you will find your own private lawned area, positioned in an extremely secluded spot amongst the River Wye, it doesn’t get much more tranquil than this.

Peer into the river to reveal a hover of trout, or play a game of pooh sticks in the river voted for the best place to do so!

Take a stroll into the local village and spend an afternoon in one of its lovely pubs, serving real ale and delicious food, it’s the perfect option for when you don’t feel like cooking yourself.

In close reach you can also find the market town of Bakewell, famous for its puddings, this lively area offers an array of historical delights, as well as even more eateries and shops to explore.

Positioned within the Peak District, only 3 miles from Chatsworth, you’ll be surrounded by ample opportunities for walking, cycling, and nature spotting, creating a scenic and memorable day out for all of the family.

In reach of Chesterfield and Sheffield too, River View Cottage is perfectly placed for exploring the best of the Peak District.

About the location

ASHFORD-IN-THE-WATER

Bakewell 2 miles.

The picture-postcard village of Ashford-in-the-Water nestles on the banks of the River Wye, just two miles from Bakewell, at the heart of the Peak District National Park. This historic village, once famous for its marble, consists of 18th century stone cottages, two lovely pubs, an exquisite restaurant and a superb village store, renowned for its quality produce. The medieval Sheepwash Bridge, overhung by whispering willow trees, was once a major crossing point over the Wye for packhorses delivering malt from Derby and is flanked by a former sheep washing pen. Ashford Cricket Ground is a perfect spot to spend an afternoon supporting the local team, whilst Ashford 'Orchard' provides an ideal children's play area. The nearby, renowned market town of Bakewell offers a variety of shops, restaurants and pubs, together with frequent local farmers' markets. Visit the many stately homes, including Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall, or explore the rugged Dark Peak and softer limestone White Peak, all within easy reach. With Britain's premier theme park, Alton Towers and the impressive caverns at Castleton close by, you'll be spoilt for choice at this fantastic location.
