Property code: PK903

A picturesque cottage nestled in a charming Peak District village, the cottage offers a great base for exploring the nearby Monsal Dale by bike or foot, or fishing in the Monsal Reservoir.

Steal away and experience a romantic retreat in Ashford in the Water, a quintessentially English village in the heart of the Peak District National Park. Located just moments from the village shop and welcoming local pub, this property offers you the chance to fully immerse yourself in village life. Step outside and enjoy walks along the River Wye and into the pretty meadows of Monsal Dale, enjoying the unforgettable scenery that this English beauty spot is well known for. You’re even welcome to bring one dog along to stay with you, the perfect addition to any walking retreat.

This attractive stone cottage features plenty of traditional design elements yet has been updated with an attractive and up-to-date interior to provide the perfect accommodation. Look forward to sociable evenings together spent on the open-plan ground floor, preparing meals in the kitchen and sitting down in the lounge/diner. You’ll want to find time to plan routes and activities for days yet to come, and we can’t think of a better place to do this than in front of a warming wood burner. Throw a log on the fire and consult the maps before heading on up to bed for an undisturbed night’s sleep.

Step out on foot to experience some of Derbyshire’s most beautiful scenery. The Monsal Trail is an excellent place to start – an 8.5-mile route for walking, cycling or even horseback riding and a chance to see the area to its fullest extent. On the way, you’ll spot the Headstone Viaduct (1.5 miles), a delectable spot you’ll certainly want to stop and admire. Of course, a day out to the nearby town of Bakewell is a must (2 miles). Stock up on the town’s famous tarts and other freshly baked goodies before pressing on with your excursion.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Cottage itself was perfect, so cosy and lovely. It wasn't very well cleaned, a lot of dog hair on the floor, and we didn't get the basket of logs as promised. But fantastic place to stay, and the Bull's Head pub has great food and very welcoming staff, which is very close by. Would definitely recommend!

We stayed here for a week. It's a cute little place with an excellent location. Both pubs in the village are good and the local shop stocks a lot of things you might need including good sausages and oatcakes. The owner of this property was nice, helpful and gave us fresh towels half way through the week. Its kitchen area is small and no outdoor spaRead morece but if you don't mind that, it's a lovely place to stay. We loved our time here and would stay there again. Shower is really good! Hide
