Steal away for a romantic retreat in the Heart of England, exploring the beautiful Peak District and returning home to luxury surroundings at the end of each day. Happily sleeping two in cosy surroundings, this property provides an ideal bolthole for those looking to get away. Whether you’re set to explore the gritstone edges, hike or bike some of the Peak District’s most scenic routes or perhaps just enjoy day trips to English heritage spots, this property puts all attractions within close reach. You’ll also find a handful of local pubs 2 miles away in Barlow, perfect for those who don’t fancy cooking on their holiday.

Thoughtfully updated and lovingly restored, this Grade II-listed property has been modernised with a sleek contemporary style and yet retains plenty of stunning original features. Sit underneath the vaulted ceilings and original oak beams when relaxing in the living room or catching forty winks in the galleried king-size bedroom. The ground floor is open plan with a wood burner in the lounge area, creating a cosy atmosphere for the perfect winter night in. Luxury touches including a Nespresso machine, fluffy white robes and a music system elevate your stay, along with the welcome pack of goodies (including home-baked cake) left out for your arrival.

Just 2 miles from the village of Barlow and 1 mile to the edge of the Peak District National Park, the location of this property couldn’t be more enviable. The nearest of the famous edges, Curbar Edge, is just 4 miles away and a great spot for joining the challenging Nine Edge Hike. A less challenging day out can be found on the banks of the River Derwent (5 miles), perfect for fishing or waterside walks. You’ll also find the beautiful stately homes of Haddon Hall (10.5 miles) and Chatsworth House (5.5 miles) close by and well worth a visit.

A beautiful, unusual property, very clean and comfortable with a range of lovely added extras to make us feel really welcome. The homemade cake and the beautiful lilies. The bird feeder outside the kitchen window was a joy, first time I have seen a woodpecker close up. The location was lovely and quiet during a very busy holiday time. Soothing

We had an excellent stay in this cottage. It is well equipped, the welcome package was amazing and we wanted for nothing. The location was much better than we expected and we discovered new places to visit in the Peak District. Overall the cottage was great value and we had a lovely week helped by the fabulous weather.

Poor arrival process. The post code takes you to the wrong then unable to find the cottage using the road name as Holiday Cottages markets the property using the wrong name. Friendly locals but they couldn't help find something that doesn't exist! No contact number for the owners so unable to call for help. However, once we finally arrived that wasRead more our last complaint. More than surpassed our expectations. Fabulous cottage, outstanding views, warm welcome. We will definately be returning! Hide

Charming cosy cottage, all needs catered for. Very generous welcome pack from the owners. Ideal location for visiting the major Peak District attractions but just far enough away from all the main routes to give you a peaceful break

This is the second time we have stayed at !SELECTED!Ash Tree!ENDOFSELECTED! Cottage, this time in the summer rather than the winter. The garden at the back was in full bloom and looked beautiful, plus when the sun is out it is a real little sun trap. We love it here and will be back again.

Very comfortable rural retreat, whether its sunny or rainy. Beautiful views and close to places to visit in the Peak District if you want to explore. Such a cosy yet spacious cottage with the added bonus of log burner with a few welcome goodies on arrival.
