  • "Orchard cottage is the perfect little getaway , set in a quiet rural location but close enough to local amenities ."

    We were made to feel very welcome by the owner and she was knowledgeable on the area . Whilst there we used the log burner it soon makes the cottage toastie warm . We enjoyed family time playing games supplied with the cottage , around the fire , indulging in probably the best fish and chips we have had in years from the local queen's chippy . Personally I loved the roof windows and laying in bed looking up to the stars . It is just like home from home with everything you need ,. It's perfect for dogs the smaller back garden is extremely secure and opens onto a larger shared garden also secure so the dogs can have a mad half HR chasing around ,. We shall definitely be returning 100% x

    Situated in quiet location but great for kids and the dog. Close to Ashbourne and the Peak District. We live not too far away but made for a lovely short weekend away and would recommend.

  • "We had a most amazing week at Orchard Cottage, came home yesterday but would have loved to have stayed longer."

    The cottage is comfortable and well equipped, the outside space for our two dogs, Connie and Meg was brilliant and we came home with two very tired happy girls. There are walks and fields around the farm that can also be utilised with the local pub a staggerable 5 minutes away, we will definitely be planning a return, Lois and her family were very welcoming and helpful and close at hand if needed. Would highly recommend.

    Lovely and clean and well equipped kitchen. Absolutely loved the log burner. however the beds were too firm for our liking but that’s personal choice, and wouldn’t stop us returning In the future, hopping for so sun next time though! Thank you to Lois and her family

  • "We felt very relaxed as soon as we arrived although there was a chill in the rooms so maybe heating on for arrival would be a nice touch but the log fire soon had the lounge warm."

    Great for the dogs, they really enjoyed playing in the well kept gardens. Overall a fabulous holiday and location.

  • "Wonderful cottage, huge basket of logs for the wood burner which we all enjoyed very much."

    Very clean and tidy, lovely comfy beds, our dogs enjoyed the outdoor space, nice secure garden and extra area for the dogs to have a sniff around. Lois was very helpful and provided a local OS map for us. Will definitely be coming back again in the future.

  • "The wood burning stove and storage heaters made it warm and cosy."

    Staying on the farm was quiet and relaxed. There were goldfinches on the bird feeder, red kites circling overhead. We saw owls and bats at night, all this, only 5 minutes walk to the cosy pub up the road.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely little cottage."

    We stayed for a week with our 2 boys (5 and 2 years) who loved sleeping in the bunk beds and playing on the trampoline. Lois was very friendly and welcoming, even with the Covid restrictions she greeted us and gave us some more information about the cottage and the surrounding area. We were well placed for many activities in the Peak District and found the cottage comfortable for resting after a busy day. We only wish we could’ve stayed longer!

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

    It was comfortable and in a fabulous location for the abundance of walks on offer in the surrounding area. The nearest town of Ashbourne was a five minute journey and Dovedale was just on the doorstep too. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners and the girls loved being able to take a peek at the horses in the stables. The garden was an added bonus for the dog, who also had access to a disused runway for his morning and evening walks. All in all we would recommend staying here and should we ever do a staycation again in the coming years, this would be in the top of our list. Thank you for a lovely stay.

  • "Lovey people and beautiful peaceful location ."

    Spotlessly clean and very comfortable . The only downside was the heating. Night storage heaters gave lots of heat during the day when we were not at home but very little in the evenings when you needed it . The log burner was essential . Apart from that we had a lovely break and would definitely go there again.

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.
