    “Lovely clean and comfortable ...”
    Lovely clean and comfortable cottage in an ideal rural location that is still close to lots of attractions and Alton Towers. Owner was very welcoming and would definitely recommend.

The property

Ashbourne 3 miles.

A Grade II listed barn conversion, located on a working farm in open countryside, close to the southern edge of the Peak District National Park, but convenient for the lovely market town of Ashbourne.

This cosy end-terrace cottage is situated in a large courtyard and lawned area across from the owner’s farmhouse and is ideal for a small family or group of friends.

The bedrooms are light and comfortable with all rooms benefiting from beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.

The farmhouse-style kitchen has everything you need to prepare a hearty breakfast or a well-earned feast, and the sitting room with dining area is decorated in a traditional style with beams, tall sash windows and exposed brickwork.

The courtyard is a great place to dine alfresco or just sit and relax with a drink, while the children expend their last bit of energy on the large lawned area.

The location is ideal for walkers, birdwatchers and cyclists.

The delightful market town of Ashbourne with its cobbled alleys, market stalls, independent shops, restaurants and coaching inns is just a few miles down the lane.

Nearby there are lots of lovely villages to explore, along with walks to enjoy such as the stunning Dovedale with its limestone ravine and stepping stones.

Visit the many National Trust properties that can be found in the area, or you may wish to watch the abundant birdlife or paddle a kayak on the beautiful Carsington Water, which is less than five miles away.

For thrill-seekers, the popular theme park Alton Towers is just 13 miles away with its array of exhilarating rides.

A cosy cottage fit for a great break at any time of the year.

About the location

ASHBOURNE

Matlock 14 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. Alton Towers is just 20 minutes away.
