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.

Cottage is located in a idyllic setting with great access to local attractions such as Bakewell, Monsal Trail and other local attractions. Lovely welcoming pub and coffee shop within a one minute walk from the cottage. The cottage has all you could want from a short break, there were two of us and our dog and we had ample space for what we wanted.

Excellent very cosy cottage ideal for two in great village within walking distance of Bakewell and Monsal Trail (a mile or two). Very clean, well equipped, log fire and WiFi. Pub Next door but one offers great food. V quiet at night.

Traditional, quaint stone cottage in the most beautiful village. Cottage well equipped. On road parking in March was easy. A brilliant bus service right outside the door takes you to Matlock, Buxton and into Bakewell (for a small charge they take the dog too)! Lots of walks directly from the cottage.

Enjoyed the location in the historic village with authentic cottage but didn't realise how small it would be and how much the access only front garden would bother us. It was great having the T room and Bull Inn so close but for us personally the lack of space and privacy would stop us renting this cottage again .
