Description

Secretly tucked away in a courtyard, this delightful cottage is a restored lace runner’s cottage dating from the 1830s. As soon as you walk through the door, there is a wonderful calming ambience. Situated in the beautiful town of Ashbourne, there is everything you could need within walking distance.
Ashbourne is a thriving, picturesque market town on the edge of the Peak District, and is rich in history. It comprises medieval streets and historic buildings with a wealth of independent shops. The cobbled market place, hidden alleys and courtyards are a delight to explore, and the wide and elegant Church Street is considered to be the finest street of Georgian buildings in Derbyshire. There is also a wide range of restaurants, coffee shops and family and dog friendly pubs.
Ashbourne is surrounded by beautiful countryside and is an ideal base for a short break or longer holiday. If you enjoy stately homes, you are in for a treat with Chatsworth House, Sudbury Hall, Hardwick Hall, Kedleston Hall, Tissington Hall and Haddon Hall to name just a few, and are all within an easy drive.
Ashbourne is known as the ’Gateway to the Peak District National Park’ and is an ideal base from which to visit many attractions, including Alton Towers Theme Park, eight miles, and the Heights of Abraham cable car rides at Matlock Bath. Beautiful Dovedale is within five miles and the Tissington Trail is within half a mile.
This is the perfect destination for couples, families and groups of friends wishing to holiday together, and there is something for every budget and taste.

About the local area

Ashbourne is situated in a beautiful green valley and is the southern gateway to the Peak District. A short distance from the River Dove, commanding the approach to Dovedale, this is one of Derbyshire's finest old market towns which still displays the original medieval street planning with historic buildings and a wealth of high quality shops. Even today the towns' appearance has changed little since the 18th century.

The cobbled market place, hidden alleys and yards are a delight to explore. Its many fine historic buildings include St. Oswald's Church, Owfield's Almshouses and The Mansion. The towns past visitors include Dr Johnson and James Boswell, Charles I and Bonny Prince Charlie, who stayed here on his march south to Derby in 1745.

Clustered around the old market square and along the main street there are many boutiques, antique shops, bistros, food shops and pubs including The Green Man and Black's Head, a famous Georgian coaching inn once frequented by Dr Johnson and Boswell.

To the north is Ilam at the lower end of the River Manifold; a pretty village with a long history, dominated by a memorial cross erected in 1840. Further along the Manifold Valley is Throwley Hall where the ruins of a fine Elizabethan manor house can be found.

Just off the Buxton-Ashbourne road is the village of Tissington, which is delightfully laid out with an imposing southern approach via a gateway and avenue of lime trees.

Other places of interest in the area are Tissington Hall near Ashbourne with wonderful paintings, furniture and porcelain, The Tissington Trail cycle route which follows the former Buxton to Ashbourne railway line and Thor's Cave in the Manifold Valley which was first inhabited by Stone Age man.
