The property

This delightful detached cottage is located at the heart of the well-preserved village of Ashford-in-the-Water.

This spacious stone cottage is nestled behind similar buildings, tucked away from the street, and has been finished to a high standard in a traditional country style.

Rose Cottage is perfect for a family or a group of friends looking to explore the Peak District National Park.

The traditional country kitchen is found at the rear on the ground floor and has everything you need to prepare and cook food including a Smeg fridge and a range cooker with gas hob, as well as stylish décor such as stone flooring and a butler sink.

Coming off the kitchen is the dining/sitting room which features wood flooring, an open fireplace and a dining table set for four people.

The second reception room is a cosy carpeted snug which also boasts an open fireplace as well as a pull-out sofa bed and a TV to enjoy in the evenings after a rewarding day exploring the Peak District.

The cottage has two double bedrooms which are located on the first floor and boast original period features such as fireplaces and wooden beams.

There is also a dressing room upstairs, as well as an elegant bathroom complete with a bath and a beautiful fixed galvanised shower head.

To the rear of the property is a charming enclosed courtyard, laid to stone and finished with a range of potted plants as well as garden chairs for you to relax with a drink in the evening.

To the front of the property is a bedded garden area which has been cultivated with a variety of vibrant plants and can be viewed from both double bedrooms.

From Rose Cottage it’s a very short walk to the central hub of Ashford-in-the-Water where you’ll find a choice of well-regarded gastro pubs and tea rooms, as well as a village shop.

The town is also home to the Holy Trinity Parish Church.

Most visitors enjoy walking along the River Wye which runs though the village, crossing the famous ‘chocolate-box’ stone bridges.

Ashford-in-the-Water lies at the heart of the Peak District, this means visitors can enjoy stunning walks whichever way they turn when they leave the village.

Peak District activities include hiking, mountaineering, cycling and climbing.

A short drive from Rose Cottage is the delightful town of Bakewell, home of the famous pudding.

Just five miles away is Chatsworth House, home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire and one of Britain’s finest stately homes.

About the location


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.
