About the property

Converted 17 Century Cottages

We have four cottages sleeping up to 18 people and we are located just 1 mile from Carsington reservoir with its water sports and cafes, down a quiet lane nestled in the valley with footpaths from the doorstep taking you from your back door to the historical village of Tissington or up to The Old Gate Pub in Brassington and beyond.

All our guests enjoy our large indoor heated swimming pool with stunning views across the valley whatever the weather, perfect for burning some calories or a quiet relaxing swim.

Each of our cottages are individually styled with their own character but every one is superbly comfortable and equipped with all modern conveniences including wifi as well as a log burning stove in the sitting room, all the bedding and towels are provided.

There are plenty of books, games and dvd's too.

Each cottage has a modern well-equipped kitchen and dining room and for nights off from cooking there are several excellent pubs and restaurants within walking distance or a short drive away.

The area is packed with sights to see or activities for all ages with Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Kedleston Hall and Carsington Water, Alton Towers Gullivers Kingdom as well as Dove Dale, Ilam and the High Peak and Tissington Trail just minutes away.

And for later each cottage has a private patio garden with seating, bbq and chimneas. We have tried to think of everything.

About Vikki

Tim and I moved from Bakewell in 2006 and have since not only restored the house, converted the buildings and built the swimming pool but most importantly had our 2 lovely children George and Ruby in a very busy but enjoyable 10 years

Vikki purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Vikki chose Ashbourne

We immediately fell in love with the property on our first visit because of the wonderful homely feel when we walked in.

What makes this cottage unique

The setting and location is perfect, the views across the valley are amazing, it is both peaceful and beautiful but still close to everything.

Comfortable and Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

Such an excellent time we had in Derbyshire. Vikki, Tim and family were so very gracious. They made our stay so much more enjoyable. Towns, entertainment and restaurants were all nearby in the beautiful countryside. The bonua was the heated swimming pool on premises. The kids had a great time even during rainy days. Totally recommend to families!

Excellent weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Woodshed cottage for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. The cottage was finished to a very high standard and had everything we needed. A welcome pack greeted us upon arrival which was a nice touch. The standard of the finishes was top drawer and lovely to come home to after a day out and about. With our 3 year old in tow, the pool was ideal and we used it everyday (had it to ourselves!). Like the cottage, it was beautifully finished and spotlessly clean - even with it's own sound system t hat you can plug your ipod into! The cottages are gathered around a courtyard area and the riding school is right next door so our little one loved seeing the horses each day. All in all, a great set up. One of the nicest cottages we've ever stayed in.
