Description

The Chop House has been carefully converted from the original farm corn shed, where the animal feed was once chopped and mixed. Featuring original beams and features throughout, this wonderful cottage offers guests a perfect base from which to explore the surrounding areas. Pleasant views of the farm yard, duck pond and surrounding countryside can be enjoyed year round.

This detached property provides accommodation for up to six guests with a spacious, comfortable living room in which to relax and a well-equipped kitchen/dining room where everyone can get together and enjoy a home cooked meal. Three bedrooms can be found upstairs along with a separate toilet and bathroom.

Outside the property you will find an enclosed, walled garden area with seating, the ideal spot for dining alfresco. The Chop House is ideally placed for visiting the many attractions of the Derbyshire Dales and Peak District, The Potteries and The Staffordshire Moorlands. Ashbourne is rich in original cobbled lanes, old market stalls and grand Georgian buildings lining the streets. It also boasts a great selection of restaurants, interesting shops and traditional coaching inns to enjoy. Within easy reach are the famous historic houses of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall, renowned for their architecture and beautiful gardens. This really is a great base from which to explore the nearby Peak District delights such as Matlock and Matlock Bath, which has been attracting visitors since the 17th century. A host of other places to visit include Gulliver’s Kingdom, the Peak Mining Museum and the Heights of Abraham, which can be reached by cable car.

Venture a little further north to the famous market town of Bakewell and sample a tasty Bakewell Tart from the original pudding shop. Or, why not explore the well-known Tissington and Monsal Trails, where you can hire a bike and cycle for miles without seeing a single car? Add to this the famous Alton Towers Theme Park and you really are spoilt for choice. This is a fabulous cottage in a great location to enjoy at any time of the year. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

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.
