Situated next to the owner’s home, offering complete privacy is this charming pet-friendly cottage which boasts lots of original character alongside comfortable furnishings for a home from home escape.

This beautiful cottage is located just outside the chocolate-box village of Ashford-in-the-Water and sleeps four guests. You’ll have a fabulous choice of walks directly from your front door, through the spectacular Derbyshire countryside. The village has great links with the traffic-free Monsal Trail, and is also just 3 miles from Bakewell, the Peak District’s epicentre for outdoor activities. For a slice of history, head to 900-year-old Haddon Hall (5.5 miles).

The characterful cottage has the perfect mix of rustic charm and contemporary style, creating a cosy, home-away-from-home vibe. After a long walk, curl up on the sofa in the lounge in front of the wood burner with a cuppa and a good book. The light and bright dining area has a large table and elegant chairs, so you can all congregate to enjoy delicious meals together and plan your next adventure. The property has a large, enclosed garden, with a BBQ and beautiful, mature borders. Here, you can dine alfresco at the picnic bench and soak up the tranquil surroundings or relax with a glass of wine in the sunshine before retiring upstairs to one of the comfortable bedrooms.

Take the time to explore Ashford-in-the-Water, where you’ll find quaint limestone cottages and immaculate floral displays. The village has one of the most photographed bridges in the country – Sheepwash Bridge – so be sure to pay it a visit for a game of Pooh sticks or a peaceful picnic on the nearby grassy riverbank. There are endless walking trails branching out from the village, including to the popular beauty spot of Monsal Head (2 miles), where you can marvel at the impressive views down the valley, towards the iconic viaduct. Spend a fascinating afternoon at Haddon Hall, exploring the untouched interiors dating back to the 14th century and the spectacular Elizabethan gardens.

We had a pleasant stay at the cottage, we felt that walks from the doorstep werent what we expected as a very busy road meant we didnt feel with a small dog we could walk onto the next village from there. We did walk across the fields to The Packhorse Inn (which is fab). We did walks along the Monsal Trail, Lasybower reservoir, also Carsington WateRead morer enjoying Sunday lunch at the Miners Arms. Bulls Head is lovely as was The Crispin in Great Longstone so we did a lot in our weeks stay here. Hide

My partner and I, along with our dog really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. The dog loved the size of the garden and exploring around all of the plants. He also took advantage of the underfloor heating! There are plenty of scenic walks from the doorstep which we enjoyed. We were very lucky with the weather!
