This is a wonderful place to call home for those wanting to stay in a picture-perfect village with miles of countryside walks and all of the Peak District’s fantastic tourist hot spots within easy reach.

Indulge in a slice of escapism and set your sights on this delightful stone cottage for a rural getaway. Sleeping three, your traditional abode is surprisingly contemporary inside and offers a peaceful retreat for couples or small families. Visit iconic destinations such as Bakewell, 1.5 miles away, and challenge yourself to bracing walks through the countryside. On your return, the local pub offers a fine range of home-cooked food to tempt your taste buds, and the cottage itself has a warming wood burner for chilly nights.

Step inside and close the door against the elements, embracing the warmth of the wood burner by curling up on the sofas with a hot cup of cocoa. There’s a sleek and stylish kitchen area cleverly concealed under the stairwell, complete with everything you need to cook up a storm before settling down at the bijou table to eat together. Upstairs, there is a double bedroom and a smaller single for a restful night’s sleep, and you’ll also find a shower room for a spot of pampering after your travels. Completing the property is a courtyard garden with seating – perfect for drinks in the sunshine.

Ashford in-the-Water is quintessentially charming with its traditional stone buildings, friendly pub and popular village shop. The rural surroundings provide endless opportunity for exciting walks, but you’ll also be able to take a step off the beaten track with wild swimming in hot spots such as Youlgreave just outside of Bakewell, 5 miles away, or Chee Dale, 11 miles away, a stunning spot along the River Wye that also boasts excellent walking trails. The Monsal Trail runs nearby, taking you across an ever-changing landscape of limestone dales and underneath an imposing viaduct. There are lots of spots to stop and enjoy a picnic too, so be sure to bring along some tasty treats.

Disastrous stay for us sadly.

This is a beautiful cottage set in a very pretty village. The garden is really lovely and is perfect to sit out in and enjoy a glass of something in the evening. While we were there the garden really came to life with roses blooming and pretty purple bee loving flowers. The road outside the cottage is a tad busy but this didn't bother us. We visiteRead mored many beautiful places,including Chatsworth house,well worth a visit. Sunday lunch at the White lion is a must. Loved our holiday so much. Hide

The cottage was really nice, clean and tidy. We took our Labrador and it worked well. The owner had left a really good selection of basics like tea/coffee/hot chocolate as well as not skimping on things like dishwasher tablets. Walking distance to the Bulls Head which was friendly with good food and plenty of outdoor space for dogs.

Excellent location, very beautiful village, ideal for places to visit. The front garden not ideal very overgrown and unkempt. Not suitable for our small dog. Especially due to front gate leading straight onto busy road - no path directly outside front gate. The cottage itself has everything you could possibly need.

We had a lovely week here. It is small, with only one living space which was fine for 2 adults and our toddler but wouldn't fit more than that. It was warm and comfortable. Good value for money, we really liked the modern feel, and the coffee machine! The double bed was on the smaller side but perfectly comfortable. The location is ideal, Bakewell Read moreis walkable and a supermarket near by. Lots of beautiful walks and places to go. The road is quite busy and a bit noisy but not too bad. Hide
