5 Star holiday cottage with its own private indoor pool. Situated in Thorpe, a delightful village at the southern end of the White Peak area of the Peak National Park, Thorpe Cloud View cottage is a charming holiday location within the four-acre grounds of, but set apart from, Thorpe House, a late Georgian limestone grade two listed building of considerable character. The cottage, allocated the top rating of five stars, has uninterrupted views of Thorpe Cloud, at the entrance to Dovedale, the limestone gorge which separates Derbyshire and Staffordshire. The surrounding areas provide excellent walking. The picturesque Derbyshire market town of Ashbourne is just some 3 miles away; the spa town of Buxton, and the historic houses of Chatsworth, Haddon Hall, Hardwick Hall and Kedleston are all within easy access. Alton Towers, the UK’s largest leisure park is only a twenty-minute drive away.
We had an amazing time seeing the new year in at the Thorpe Cloud view cottage. The cottage itself is ideal for couples and is well equipped and in excellent condition. The private pool is an added bonus. The owners Ray and Julie are very responsive and knowledgeable of the local area and local walks. The cottage is walking distance to the dovedales and Thorpe Cloud, a perfect start to the new year! Highly recommended.
Absolutely beautiful cottage.Swimming pool n hot tub was brilliant.The chickens were very friendly.The only downside there was no coffee or milk but that's very minor.overall I gotta give the cottage a massive 10 out of 10.looking forward to booking again.
We arrived on the Friday and spent a very relaxing week, which is what we wanted. The sofas and bed plus bed settee were comfortable. The equipment was good and everything worked well. We enjoyed the fire and used it a lot.
The swimming pool was the reason I booked the cottage but the door to it was swollen with wet and I couldn't open it or shut it. Fortunately my husband was just able to do so. We enjoyed the lovely warmth every day.
The chickens from next door were a bit of a pest cos as soon as you opened the door they came in! It wasn't the owners fault but previous visitors had fed them so they assumed everyone would
Overall it was a very pleasant week. I would recommend it.
Once again we would like to say how lovely Thorpe view cottage is for a perfect holiday,this was the third year on the run we have been and have booked again for 2017. This is the most relaxing holiday cottage we have ever been to and the private pool and jacuzzi is such a bonus always kept at a constant temperature. The cottage is kept very clean and is well equipped with everything you could possibly need and a recently refurbished luxurious shower room on the ground floor .Ray and Julie are the perfect hosts were nothing is to much trouble. Looking forward to next year with walks to Dovedale and on the Tissington trail. Thanks once again to Ray and Julie. Ivan and Jean
This is a superb property. Ideal for a couple - really well maintained. We had our son, wife and granddaughter stay for a night which worked out brilliantly. The lambs and chickens in the next field were a real joy for the little one to watch. The log burner provided cosiness on colder evenings, and the pool is a real bonus, available anytime. Walks from here are easy to find, and I took my bike the first time we stayed here as the Tissington trail is just down the road. The local pub is welcoming and popular too. The owners are really helpful and friendly as well. We have already booked our third visit!
We stayed at the cottage in January for my birthday and we had a wonderful break. It is cosy but quite spacious for a one bedroom cottage and had everything we needed. Upon arrival the fire had been lit which was much appreciated on a cold night in January. The owners had also left fresh flowers and a bottle of wine. I have to say that I had the best nights sleep I've had in ages. The bed was so comfortable as was the bedding. The whole cottage was spotlessly clean I can't fault it. The pool was an added luxury that we enjoyed every evening, also very clean. The cottage is in a courtyard next to the owners house but the way it's set gives you a complete sense of privacy but the owner popped in upon arrival to make sure we had everything we needed, which was nice. I would definitely recommend this cottage and I'm looking forward to booking it again. Thanks for a lovely stay.
