  • "An outstanding cottage."

    Absolutely perfect. We had a short stay away and the location and setting is stunning. The cottage is so well laid out, modern and with everything you need. So comfortable and clean. The views from the hot tub are really nice. We had a lovely little welcome pack waiting for us. The owners are really lovely and sent us a nice email before we visited with a welcome pack of information. We will definitely be visiting again.

    Thank you very much for the lovely feedback Russell, we’re very glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "A brilliant and beautiful cottage!"

    In a really nice location. The owners where brilliant and answered any and all questions that I had. They even decorated the inside for a birthday that we where going away for after I asked them and sent the decorating to them. Truly beautiful and will be revisiting in the summer time.

  • "We had a great stay in this cottage The only two things I would say is no ..."

    We had a great stay in this cottage The only two things I would say is no toilet roll holder in the bathrooms so you had to either turn around to the back of the toilet or put it on the bin/sink Also there were no placemats for the dining room table which we found strange However all in all it was a beautiful setting and cottage and we would stay here again

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sycamore cottage."

    The cottage had everything we needed, comfy beds, comfy sofas, well equipped kitchen, and the hot tub! The owner was easy to contact, and kept us informed about local road closures which was nice when you are not local. All in all could not fault the holiday.

  • "We absolutely loved every minute of our stay at Sycamore Cottage."

    The property itself is immaculate, very clean and decorated to a good style with some quirky decorative pieces. There is one main route to the cottage on country lanes from the main road so it is easy to get to, although coming from the Ashbourne end the country lane is very narrow and was a little bit much for me so we always choose the other route past the farm shop, which only added about a minute to the journey and less stressful for me! The hot tub was great and the views were simply amazing, looking out over the Derbyshire Dales with some lovely sheep grazing in the field next door. Ellie, the owner, was brilliant. Very easy to communicate with and so helpful. We had one slight issue with the hot tub but she had it sorted for us straight away. The area is great for all ages. We stayed with our two children (5 and 7) and there was loads to do with them but we could have easily kept ourselves occupied with lots of small villages to explore and loads of walking routes. With the children we took them to Peak Wildlife Park and Splash Landings waterpark, both a little pricey but we spent the whole day there. We also spent the day in Ashbourne, and at Carsington Water, which was great. We went a little further afield and had a trip to the car museum (for the husband!) and another trip for the children at Conkers, which is an outside activity centre. We had hoped to get to Bakewell and Chatsworth House but just ran out of time! All in all, a brilliant week with a very comfortable cottage to come back to. We would happily return. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

  • "What a beautiful property in such a scenic location!"

    The owners were very accommodating and were very responsive to questions we had prior to our stay. They also kept us updated about wifi issues in the area during our visit which we really appreciated. Thank you so much for the welcome pack. It was such a lovely touch and our daughters loved their treats too! The cottage was well equipped (especially in the kitchen) but we would have appreciated a brush and pan to clean the floor. Overall the property was cleaned to a good standard however, there were a few little bits on the floor (particularly in kitchen, upstairs bathroom and dining room) which wasn't ideal for a crawling baby. We loved spending time in the garden and in the hot tub surrounded by the beautiful countryside. It was lovely seeing the sheep through the kitchen window! We also enjoyed relaxing by the wood burning stove in the evenings and playing the board games. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

    Thank you for your feedback, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. There is a dustpan and brush and a Hoover located under the stairs for guest use and we are sorry you did not find these. Unfortunately your stay coincided with our own holiday. We are putting in place a secondary checking system for any time we are away in future, which should eliminate anything similar happening again. Had you notified us of this on arrival we would of course have rectified this. Thank you once again. Property Owner

    Lots of thought has been put in to ensure you have everything you need for a relaxing getaway. The hot tub overlooking the hills and fields is a great place to unwind after a day out exploring the local area.

  • "We’re frequent renters of self catering accommodation and can honestly say that this is best equipped cottage that we’ve ever stayed in."

    It had everything that we needed - and more. The photos are a great representation of what you’ll see in the house but what you can’t see are the additional amenities filling the cupboards and drawers - the amazing welcome pack, the fresh flowers, sturdy pans and cooking equipment, the wide range of utensils, quality sharp knives for food prep, sufficient cleaning products for our stay, an air fryer, enough glassware for a party, proper wooden coat hangers, magnifying mirrors in the bathrooms…I could go on and on! The accommodation was perfect for two couples travelling together and I liked being able to choose the arrangement for the beds. From making my reservation and throughout our stay there was easy contact with the owners, something that I always find reassuring. The area is very peaceful and the views are truly beautiful. Highly recommended.

    Thank you very much for the lovely feedback, we’re very glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

Perfect for couples, families or friends and residing only a short distance from the Peak District National Park, this dwelling makes a fantastic base for exploring the local surroundings and landscapes.

Inside, a well-fitted kitchen provides all the essentials for a self-catered stay and the dining room offers a delightful space to enjoy meals prepared by the designated chef; after tucking into a feast, retreat to the plush sitting room to enjoy a film or two in front of the woodburning stove.

If you don’t want your evening to end, step outside to the enclosed garden, complete with outdoor furniture and a hot tub, an idyllic spot for star gazing or enjoying the tranquil surroundings.

Ashbourne is a picturesque town located just south of the Peak District Park, with its array of stunning attractions and amenities to offer, as well as breath taking views of the natural landscape, it is a wonderful destination to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Just a stone’s throw away lies Wooton Lodge, Ilam Park, and the limestone structure Reynard’s Cave, which is situated on the easter bank of the gorge of Dovedale and overlooks an appealing view.

Thrill seekers should venture further to Stoke-on-Trent where they can spend an extraordinary day riding rollercoasters at Alton Towers Resort, or take a day trip to The Trentham Estate, home to its very own Monkey Forest and Treetop Adventures.

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.
