  • “A beautiful cottage including some lovely vintage crockery to use, the owner has thought of everything!”

    Very spacious and we loved using the agar.

    Very spacious and we loved using the agar. The only issue we had was the radiators kept going off which made the living room too cold to sit in at times. Jazzy the owner was very accommodating with excellent communication and got a plumber out within hours. Nothing was too much trouble! A suggestion would be an itinerary of the kitchen items. Thank you Jazzy for letting us stay at your beautiful cottage. We will be booking again next year!

The property

Mayfield 2.1 miles.

Resting on Calwich Abbey Estate a few miles from the bustling market town of Ashbourne, is the delightful historic lodge.

The owners have gone to extreme lengths to transform this former butler's lodge into a stunning holiday home of the highest standard.

Fitted with quality furnishings and appliances, this makes the very best place for friends or families looking to explore this wonderful rural area.

Entering the property, you will be greeted by a kitchen with light units and sleek worktops, providing a range of modern appliances, including an electric AGA cooker.

A utility room provides a washing machine and tumble dryer for your convenience.

There is a further dining room with plenty of seating to enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal, with the delightful woodburning stove providing that extra bit of warmth during the cooler months.

Walk through to the sitting room boasting a huge wall-mounted TV, framed by two sofas where you can gather to watch some of your favourite shows, or let the TV hum in the background whilst you catch up on the day's events.

This room has lovely large windows offering an abundance of natural light along with a large wood burning fire.

The property benefits from four double bedrooms, with two boasting their own en-suites.

The master bedroom has its own dressing room, where a travel cot can easily rest, whilst the main room has an original 1970s bed with speakers and lights integrated, making it the perfect space for some late night reading or listening to soft music to lull you to sleep.

This room was originally the courtyard but has been renovated into a bedroom and still has some of its original exposed stone walls, adding a wealth of character to this exceptional property.

Choose from a family bathroom with a roll-top bath, or a shower room to prepare for your day in style.

Settled in a rural area, this property has access to a number of trails for walking and cycling opportunities, particularly popular in the nearby Peak District National Park.

A few miles away is the market town of Ashbourne with its traditional eateries if you don't fancy cooking one evening, and a selection of independent shops and supermarkets for picking up those last-minute essentials.

Within driving distance, you will find Alton Towers theme park for those adventure-seekers to enjoy a fun-filled afternoon on the thrilling rides.

Make sure you visit the nature reserve a Dovedale, known for its rock formations, Carsington Water is also well-worth the trip, popular for a variety of watersports.

Butlers Lodge is a wonderful choice for a countryside break for families.

About the location


Ashbourne 2 miles.

The small village of Mayfield peacefully lies at the southern end of the Peak District National Park, set amidst stunning scenery and offering great walking and cycling opportunities. The nearby market town of Ashbourne with its eccentric street plan, narrow cobbled alleys and quaint coaching inns is something of a haven for antique hunters, offering many great antique stores, as well as a variety of good pubs and restaurants. With the Dove and Manifold Valleys also close by and both Carsington Water and Alton Towers within a 20 minute drive, this great location offers relaxation and enjoyment all year round.
