  • "A lovely cottage in a lovely location."

    Fully equipped, and the open fire was a real treat when the temperature dropped and the snow created a beautiful winter wonderland in the village and surrounding countryside. We highly recommend this dog-friendly cottage.

  • "The accommodation was very comfortable, clean and had everything we needed."

    The garden was safe and secure for our two Beagles. The owner was very friendly and helpful yet left us to enjoy the surroundings ourselves. Baby Ducks, dogs, horses and a Peacock were regularly in the yard. Bliss. The bed was very comfortable which is important, especially after a day of walking with the dogs.

  • "This was a lovely cottage in a beautiful area."

    It had a well stocked kitchen and a nice, secure garden which is always useful when you have a dog. The owner was helpful, friendly and available when we had a query. We particularly liked the situation of the cottage as we could walk into lovely countryside from the door and there are lots of places to go and lots of local footpaths. Our only concern were the two single beds which weren’t comfortable and were squeaky. Maybe near the end of their lives.

    The description did not disappoint. Directions were great and just off the A515. Location was brilliant for the local pub, local walks, a trip to Dovedale, Dimmingsdale walks and a trip into Ashbourne for tea and cake while I left hubby to watch the last day of the Six Nations Rugby!!. Cottage had everything we needed. The enclosed garden was secure to let our dog run in and out. In the evenings when the weather turned very slowly and rainy we put the log fire on and out our feet up. Thank you to Mrs Lynch for making us welcome.

About the location


Ashbourne 3 miles.

Edlaston is a lovely rural hamlet just 3 miles from the beautiful market town of Ashbourne. Lying at the southern end of the Peak District, Ashbourne is a perfect example of a Derbyshire market town - there is a market place with stalls, an 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.
