This Grade II listed cottage has been beautifully decorated with contemporary fixtures and tones to compliment original features and quirks. Set within its own private gardens on the banks of the River Wye.

Ashford in the Water is a pretty and popular Derbyshire village, located in the heart of the Peak District National Park. Sitting on the banks of the River Wye, three bridges cross this free flowing river making it an idyllic waterside setting. The village pub is welcoming and popular among locals, while you will find almost everything you need for your stay in the village shop. Walkers will enjoy setting out on the Monsal Trail, while the riverside cricket ground offers a relaxing spot to enjoy the game.

The cottage is accessed through a porch into the spacious beamed sitting room. With a log burning fire set in a traditional gritstone fireplace, this family room also features a writing desk for those working while they’re away, plus striking stone casement windows. Next door, the spacious kitchen has been beautifully fitted with cream units, granite worktops and clean white splash back tiles. To make your stay extra special, why not request a food hamper when you book? Enjoy your meals in the formal dining room, which has a large table, gritstone fireplace and exposed beam. Or retreat to the conservatory for a relaxing afternoon’s reading.

Upstairs the master bedroom is full of character, with a vaulted beamed ceiling, gritstone fireplace and chaise longue on which to look out over the garden and river, there is an en-suite bathroom with wash basin, toilet and bath which is tastefully decorated in keeping with the cottage . The two other bedrooms have twin single beds, pretty linen and traditional stone windows, while the family bathroom has a separate shower cubicle and bath, wash basin and toilet.

Outside, there is a lovely large patio to sit and enjoy the views of the mature gardens, which run from the cottage down to the water’s edge and is fenced off for the safety of younger visitors.  There is a further large area of pasture beyond and friendly chickens which roam the grounds.

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.

We had a very enjoyable stay with 3 generations using this delightful cottage. It is a beautiful location with plenty to do in the vicinity, walking into Bakewell along the river was rather pleasant. Richard and Katrina were great hosts and it suited our purposes very well.

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. Definitely go back . Hide
