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.

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. Outside is a large patio area with remarkable views of the gardens, and a large pasture beyond with friendly chickens who roam the grounds.

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. The popular Monsal Trail runs by the village, a fantastic walking route taking in some of the very best sights of the Peak District. 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. The pretty town of Bakewell is just 1.5 miles down the road and Chatsworth House and Gardens are 5.5 miles.

The cottage was lovely and just as described/pictured. The setting was wonderful with the river at the bottom of the garden, all nice and quite and secluded but just a short walk from the centre of the village, with plenty of walks on the doorstep. The owners were very friendly and left us some fresh eggs from the hens in the garden and some tasty Read morewine as a gift - great at this time of year with the log fire burning in the evening. Very highly recommended and we hope to revisit! Hide

Excellent location and the village lovely. The cottage has character but some aspects could be refreshed such as the family bathroom. The chickens and rooster were cute but because they are situated in the garden and used to being fed by guests, they jump up on the table, chairs and people when trying to eat or drink outside.

A beautiful cottage in a stunning location. We literally parked up and did not use the car for 3 days as the walks were so beautiful. Lovely hosts and the local pub was very welcoming. The cottage is extremely homely with its age and quirks. Felt very at home and cant wait to return. The river at the bottom of the garden, chickens and a visit from Read morethe doggies was an added bonus. If you want to go to the Peaks this is the place I would always recommend. Hide

The location is perfect. The village is gorgeous with 2 pubs and a shop. There are at least 6 walks you can do from the village so great location for walking. The cottage is in beautiful surroundings with a river at the bottom of the garden and parking for at least 3 cars. The kitchen is really well equipped. The furniture and decor need some updatRead moreing and bathrooms are very 80's. The shower was luke warm each time it was used but the bath was really hot in the other bathroom Hide
