The Snug was very cosy, clean and nicely decorated. A lot of thought had gone into everything needed by visitors. Fresh flowers were a nice touch. The property is in the centre of Ashbourne which has plenty of good places to eat and drink. However it is located extremely near to a busy cross road with heavy traffic passing just about 24/7. I didnt Read morerealise so many tankers and large lorries existed. If you own a good pair of ear plugs take them with you and enjoy your stay at The Snug. Hide

This was our first visit to The Peak District and it didn't disappoint. The Snug is a lovely property, well furnished and comfortable. I was aware, obviously, that it was situated in a town and would not be as quiet as if we had stayed in the countryside, but I think it should be made clear in the "Need to know" section, just how much heavy trafficRead more passes the property, 24/7. It was impossible to get a good night's sleep, which led to us cutting our holiday short. Hide

A great location for accessibility to Peak District walks and attractions. Easy 5 minute walk into Ashbourne with lots of places to eat and shop. The Snug was clean and well equipped and the Welcome basket was a lovely touch. Only downside is that The Snug is on a very busy road junction.

We had a fantastic week in The Snug, Ashbourne. It is perfectly situated to access Dovedale, Ilam, Bakewell, the Tissington Trail, Carsington Water, Alton Towers etc. The cottage was excellent: very clean, beautifully decorated and well equipped. The welcome hamper - for us and the dog - was much appreciated. I liked the fact that dogs were not allRead moreowed upstairs. Hide

The Snug was home from home. Immaculately decorated and appointed. All our party were comfortable and enjoyed there stay. No need to bring masses of food with you as a well stocked Sainsbury's five minutes walk away. Ashbourne also has a good selection of restaurants and takeaways.
