Style and Comfort - Welcome to The Bobbin

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

This delightful Grade II listed cottage (part of an old Stocking Mill) nestling in the picturesque Peak District benefits from being only a few steps away from the village store, tearoom & some cracking pubs! Cycle on the Monsal Trail or walk in the stunning grounds at Chatsworth House, both are easily accessible and glorious views await. A visit to the nearby market town of Bakewell to sample the infamous Bakewell Pudding, is also a must! Our aim has been to make The Bobbin, an extremely comfortable 'home from home' - enjoy!

The cottage is split over three floors and comprises:

Kitchen, Sitting Room with eating area, Double Bedroom, Twin Room and Family Bathroom.

There is a shared Courtyard to the rear, accessible from the kitchen with table and chairs and two outhouses, one for laundry and the other for bicycles.

Regarding children playing outside, please be advised there is no gate to close off the Courtyard.

Also, the staircase is steep and may not be suitable for very young children, ie toddlers and the elderly.

Guest access:

Guests can park in front of/near to the property and have access via the right hand side of the building and via the kitchen to the Courtyard at the rear of the cottage.

The neighbourhood:

The Bobbin is perfectly situated in the heart of the village & ideal for those with & without transport. Ashford in the Water is steeped in history & with the Monsal Trail on the doorstep, there is plenty to see & do. You can enjoy a day out visiting Derbyshire's jewel, Chatsworth or pop into Bakewell (The Pointing Dog & Duck by the river is an excellent place to eat) & then on to Haddon Hall. Nearby Hassop Station has a wonderful café, book & gift store too with cycle/bike hire available.

About The Owner

Derbyshire has been our home for over 20+ years and we feel privileged to have raised both our children in this beautiful county. It has always been our dream to own a property in the pretty village of Ashford in the Water and we hope you find The Bobbin as enchanting as we do. We live 15 minutes away, in a nearby village and look forward to welcoming you.

Lovely, warm and welcoming property...

  • 5 of 5

Simon was very welcoming and helpful on arrival. The Bobbin is perfectly located for visits to Bakewell, Chatsworth House and Stanage Edge. The house itself is pretty and quaint with all of the amenities that you would expect. The owners even provided us with butter, bread and milk for our stay which was very kind. The village has some lovely pubs/eateries which we enjoyed (The Bull and The Ashworth Arms). Overall, a lovely, warm and welcoming property perfectly situated for a fun-filled trip to the Peak District.
