    We had a really nice holiday, and the cottage is beautifully situated. In an ideal world we would have welcomed a larger sink in the bathroom however that could be organised and perhaps a screen which would prevent water splashing out of the shower onto the floor instead of a curtain which could not be drawn round because of the ceiling slope. However, a very comfortable bed and cosy cottage.

    Pub opposite very good for food. No local shop to get fresh milk etc. Nearest shops at Ashbourne which is only 2/3 miles away but not really walkable as on a main 50mph A515.

    The small space is used efficiently, the facilities provided are adequate for short stays. The fireplace is the biggest feature we went with it. The cottage also comes with a private garden which would be lovely to spend a warm summer evening however we went during October and it was mostly wet and windy.

The owners of the cottage live next door, and are around if you need them but leave you alone to enjoy your holiday. When I arrived I as met by Ken who told me all I needed to know about the cottage.

About the location

FENNY BENTLEY

Ashbourne 2 miles; Alton Towers 13 miles.

The pretty village of Fenny Bentley lies 2 miles north of Ashbourne. Life in Fenny Bentley revolves, as it has done for years, around the pub and the church. The Church of St Edmund dates back to the 14th century. Some particular features of the church are its 16th century screens and the alabaster Beresford tomb. The heart of the village is surely the Coach & Horses, a welcoming coaching inn with real ales. Just 2 miles away, the traditional market town of Ashbourne, once a fashionable social centre in the 18th Century, boasts an eccentric street plan, quaint cobbled alleyways, old market stalls and welcoming coaching inns. Many fine Georgian buildings remain and host a good selection of restaurants and interesting antique shops. For those who prefer outdoor pursuits, the Dove and Manifold valleys are close by offering excellent walking and cycling opportunities, whilst the thrills and spills of Alton Towers are just a short drive away.
