The property

This pretty 300 year old, end-terrace, traditional cottage is situated in the small village of Kniveton, three miles from the historic market town of Ashbourne, Derbyshire.

Perfect for a romantic break, the property is an excellent base for exploring the southern edge of the Peak District, with lots of walking and cycling opportunities.

With bags of character, the cosy sitting room has beamed ceilings, panelled walls and a comforting woodburning stove, set in a stone alcove.

The compact galley-style kitchen leads off from the sitting room, whilst the cottage stairs open into an attractive double bedroom, with a fully tiled en-suite shower room.

Nicely furnished, with homely touches, this cosy cottage provides comfortable and charming accommodation.

It's just a five minute walk to the friendly, local village inn and a few minutes’ drive to the popular market town of Ashbourne.

This delightful town is renowned for its antique shops, good selection of restaurants and tea rooms, and narrow cobbled streets and market square.

Surrounded by lovely rolling countryside, Kniveton is close to Carsington Water, which has many outdoor activities, including watersports and bike hire.

Take a pleasant walk around the reservoir, a haven for birds, whilst enjoying the scenery.

The splendid stately homes of Chatsworth House and Keddleston Hall are a short drive away and the pretty market town of Wirksworth is well worth a visit.

An ideal property for couples, to explore this stunning limestone scenery.

About the location


Ashbourne 3 miles; Carsington 2 miles.

Steeped in history and situated at the southern end of the Peak District, the lovely village of Kniveton sits in a deep hollow on the slope of Madge Hill, offering home to a scattering of traditional stone cottages, a village pub and a delightful old church built in the 13th century. Surrounded by lovely rolling countryside and situated close to the excellent watersport facilities at Carsington Water, this great location provides the ideal base from which to explore the surrounding area. Nearby Ashbourne is the perfect example of an English market town, boasting an eccentric street plan, narrow, cobbled alleys, old market stalls, many fine coaching inns and a good selection of restaurants, whilst being regarded as something of a haven for antique hunters. For those who prefer outdoor pursuits, the Dove and Manifold Valleys are close by offering good walking and cycling, whilst Alton Towers is just a 30 minute drive away!
