  • Mr Matthews

    “We were impressed with the modernisation, decor and fittings, as well as the personal contact from the owner to ensure everything was how we wanted it when we arrived.”

    Brassington is a great place to stay, with it's history and for walkers. The two top floor bedrooms have great views of the surrounding hills with their traces of former mine workings and rock outcrops. Overall, Brassington is an excellent base for exploring the Devonshire Dales and Peak District, remaining a relatively quiet and authentic former mining village. The odd lorry whizzing past the cottage before 9am was the only interruption to the overriding sense of calm. The hospitality provided ...

    Brassington is a great place to stay, with it's history and for walkers. The two top floor bedrooms have great views of the surrounding hills with their traces of former mine workings and rock outcrops. Overall, Brassington is an excellent base for exploring the Devonshire Dales and Peak District, remaining a relatively quiet and authentic former mining village. The odd lorry whizzing past the cottage before 9am was the only interruption to the overriding sense of calm. The hospitality provided in The Olde Gate Inn across the road is worth the cost of the stay alone - the quality of the food, in particular, is outstanding! Overall, we would rate our stay and the cottage 4.75 out of 5, with just a few practical points which bothered us a little (we're being 'picky' here and commenting in the hope our feedback will be useful) - a taller lamp in the lounge to provide a reading spot on one of the sofas, a shaving point in one of the bathrooms, a powerpoint near a mirror (for my wife's hairdryer). We would very happily return, however!

Nestled in between the bustling market towns of Ashbourne and Bakewell, this charming end-terrace stone cottage rests in the village of Brassington, in Derbyshire.

Benefitting from stunning views across the rolling fields, this property is the perfect choice for friends and families.

The open-plan living space has been individually styled with all contemporary furnishings and a lovely purple and grey colour scheme, which adds some character to the room.

To the rear of the cottage is a patio area, ideal for dining alfresco during the summer months, or simply enjoy the fresh country air.

The Old Gate Inn pub can be found within a stone's throw of the property and is popular for its delicious food menu, also an excellent choice for quenching your thirst after a long day sightseeing.

Resting just outside of the Peak District National Park, this property is well-placed for accessing a number of country trails for walking and hiking, particularly excellent at the Dovedale Nature Reserve, as well as cycling routes.

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.
