  • "The Property was very well presented and good quality."

    The drawback was the very steep staircase to the flat which is situated on the top floor, which in Skye Cottages defence we were warned about. The heating was very difficult to workout and on occasions we were very cold, we never got the towel rail to work during our 4 night stay. The main negative to the property was the traffic noise which was relentless, the road outside is a main run for lorries and fairly heavy traffic. Also the constant bleeping of the pedestrian crossing was very annoying. The property desperately needs double glazing! Even as a good sleeper I had issues.

    Hi Garry, Many thanks for the feedback. We've had new acoustic glazing installed in the bedroom of Manifold Dale this week and it's worked very well, without affecting the lovely view guests enjoy across the Market Square. We've not had an issue with the towel rail before and we've double checked the setting. It seems fine, but I will keep an eye on that. Best wishes, Jane Property Owner

  • "The accommodation was exceptional, every need catered for."

    Comfortable, relaxing place to stay , very close to many peak district towns. Slightly steep stairs to gain access to apartment but we'll worth it.

  • "An extremely well equipped apartment, we really enjoyed our week there."

    Would love to stay there again and would recommend to friends and family. Just a minor thing to help the owner as a hook for hanging clothes in the bathroom would be helpful and a soap dish in the shower,

  • "Lovely apartment overlooking the pretty market square, it was a shame that big lorries rumbled pass the window at all times of the day and night."

    The complimentary wine and chocolates were a nice surprise and The Peak District was beautiful with lot's of places to visit.

  • "Very much enjoyed our stay."

    The apartment was scrupulously clean, which was reassuring during covid times. There was a thoughtful welcome gift in the form of wine and chocolates which after a dreadful journey up the M5 and M6 was very much welcomed on arrival. Everything is just as pictured with all necessities provided, excepting a washing machine. The weather during our stay was muggy and the aircon provided was essential and made things comfortable as the flat doesn't have much in the way of natural ventilation. There are quite a few stairs but this is clearly shown in the pictures and they are not difficult or awkward to climb. Ideally situated within a stone's throw of some nice cafes and pubs. I would thoroughly recommend this lovely apartment.

  • "Great base for exploring Derbyshire, especially the Derwent Valley."

    Lively town, with an excellent butchers by the main carpark. Well equipped for self catering. Minor niggle - no spare kitchen bin liner and I could not work out how to get the towel rail to come on. The lobby entrance to Manifold Dale (illuminated by the housekeeping interior window) would be a more useful space if coat hooks were on the wall.

About the location


  • 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.
