Property code: PK502

A delightful stone barn nestled amidst rolling countryside with a lovely patio for appreciating the area's tranquility. Fishing permits on the River Wye are an added attraction to this delightful location.

Situated in a fantastically rural location and brimming with rustic charm, this stone cottage, sleeping four, is among a cluster of similar properties that all share the same impressive views. Ashford in the Water is a mere 0.5-mile walk away, where you can stroll through the village, play Poohsticks from the bridge and enjoy some local fare in one of two village pubs. Bakewell is 2 miles away and is a treasure trove of shops, restaurants and historical remnants, and you won’t be far from the majestic Chatsworth House if you fancy stepping back in time and exploring this period property.

Imagine how relaxed you’ll feel when you step inside to find a pleasant property with timber beams, exposed stone and a feature fireplace complete with a wood burner for chilly evenings. Whether you are curled up in the lounge or whipping up something delicious in the kitchen, you and your party of four are sure to do so in comfort. The two bedrooms are upstairs and have everything you need for a restful night’s sleep, one of which has the bonus of an en-suite bathroom. Completing the property is a family bathroom and off-road parking.

For families and friendship groups alike, the sheer number of walks available from your doorstep is guaranteed to impress. Riverside walks from the nearby village are just as manageable for guests with little legs or four paws, and the Monsal Dale Walk is a traffic-free way to soak up your surroundings, passing the imposing Headstone Viaduct as you go. If you are still craving an adrenaline rush, then the Go Ape aerial extravaganza at Buxton 12 miles away is perfect for you. Failing that, head deep underground investigating the caves at Poole’s Cavern and Buxton Country Park (also 12 miles).

Had a lovely week and were blessed with gorgeous weather. The little village of Ashford in the Water is extremely pretty and has a pub, cafe and village store. Able to walk to Bakewell easily and lots of beautiful walks in the area. Our daughter joined us just for the weekend so the only suggestion is that another armchair is required for 4 people Read moreusing the property. Hide

Great location, easy walk into the village with its friendly pub. Lots of other walks on the doorstep, including a circular walk to Bakewell, we barely used the car. Chatsworth farm shop is well worth a visit for supplies. Dog friendly although care is needed - there were cattle with young calves in the adjacent field so we avoided using the footpaRead moreth which runs through it. Not ideal for a party of 4 adults - could do with another armchair Hide

Lovely holiday home, comfortable, well equipped kitchen, pristine linen/bedding and only 100 yards away from all the walks. Haddon Hall, Chatsworth, Bakewell close. Buses from village convenient if you want to leave your car behind. Recommend visit the Maidens Garlands inside village church, not many left in Derbyshire.

Lovely position in Derbyshire, great for walking and sightseeing. If you are looking for peace and quiet this might not be the ideal place as there is a Brewery next door and starts work moving barrels and having lorries collecting from around 7.30 in the morning. Its a pretty cottage, well equipped and a lovely owner.

Perfect and beautiful location for walking, cycling, running, exploring by car or just relaxing. Cottages are lovely, comfortable and arranged so that you have privacy when you want but can also chat and get together with other guests if you want. Sarah is a perfect host - friendly and on hand and available when needed. Village is a short stroll anRead mored has everything you need, and Bakewell is also walking distance.
