This former barn has been beautifully converted into a spacious contemporary family holiday home with original features at every turn. Located within easy walking distance of the amenities in Ashford-on-Water.
This cottage is ideal for a family but also doubles as a peaceful couples’ retreat at the heart of the Peak District National Park. Based on the fringes of Ashford in the Water, you’ll soon be discovering remarkable sights such as the Monsal Dale Headstone Viaduct 1 mile away or strolling through the pretty streets of Bakewell 2 miles away. Load up with local treats and return to your comfortable property to enjoy relaxing evenings by the fire, or perch outside with a glass of wine to admire the views.
Sleeping five, the cottage is traditional and welcoming with an original stone exterior, timber beams and decor to match. Cosy up in the lounge/diner with tea and cake by the wood burner, test your culinary skills in the kitchen and choose to dine in style around the table or eat alfresco on the patio. Three simple yet comfortable bedrooms provide restful sleeping quarters across the ground floor and upstairs, two of which have en-suite facilities. There’s another bathroom too, and the views from the windows are seriously impressive.
Imagine navigating the countryside with a picnic in tow, or ambling through Ashford in the Water to have lunch in the pub. The youngest members of your party will love playing Poohsticks from the bridge, and the nearby walks are suitable for little legs too. Bakewell is not only famous for its tart, but this quintessential town has a thriving art scene and plenty of shops to satisfy any retail therapy enthusiast. Time your visit correctly and you’ll be able to catch carnival week and the dressing of the well, plus a plethora of other calendar events that attract visitors year upon year.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
