This beautiful, Grade II-listed cottage is exuding traditional features and is surrounded by its own private gardens. Head to this superb village spot in the heart of the Peak District with six friends where you’ll be nearby to Bakewell, the many walking routes in the area and some fascinating historic sites.

On arrival to this cottage, you’ll be amazed by how stunning it truly is. It’s been well decorated and furnished throughout in a nod to the history of the property. Sit and relax together in the stunning lounge with a wood burner, an ideal setting for evening games, movie watching or simply planning the days ahead. A contemporary kitchen has everything you need for preparing delicious home-cooked meals and the owners can arrange a food hamper for you, if you ask prior to arrival.

Ashford in the Water is a chocolate-box village sitting on the northern bank of the River Wye as it winds through the Peak District. It’s an idyllic setting with a charming pub and some delightful walking routes.

If you fancy trying your hand at paddleboarding or other water sports, there are plenty of opportunities around here too. For the real active kind, there are plenty of opportunities in the Peak District to try out bouldering, slab climbing, mountaineering and even caving.

Wonderful base for a family holiday. An attractive, comfortable, well maintained and equipped cottage. The garden and riverside location make it very special and it is well situated to make the most of so many aspects of the Peak District.

Stunning location and property. Owners very friendly. Main reason for choosing the property was the opportunity to fish in the River Wye, which was excellent! Also an ideal location for walking and exploring this part of Derbyshire.

A charming cottage in an exceptionally beautiful, secure and private location, in a very picturesque, enchanting village. Delightful, but unobtrusive hosts. Many opportunities for wonderful walks and rock climbing nearby, in addition to listless places of particular interest to younger people.

Clean and comfy cottage with lots of homely touches which really made it feel like home rather than just a rental. So quiet the only noise were the ducks gently quacking from time to time. Great bottle of wine left for us to try from the Maysons. Loved that we could walk to two local pubs and a cafe all serving very good food and so welcoming . ReaRead morelly got the village feeling.
