About Judy Lawrence

Alan and Judy have owned Hawthorn Cottage for almost 20 years, and take care to constantly improve and update the fixtures and contents. We love this area, and spend much time exploring and walking in the Peak District. We offer a personal booking service , and are always ready to offer help with planning your holiday.

Why Judy Lawrence chose Mapleton

The cottage has been described as a "home from home" by many guests and is well equipped and comfortable. We have preserved the original features such as original fireplace, stripped beams and polished wood and slate floors. The garden is a delightful peaceful place to sit, with views of the hills, and you can walk to Dovedale or Ashbourne from here, or just stroll along the footpaths by the river.

What makes this cottage unique

Hawthorn Cottage is just over 1 mile from the lovely Georgian market town of Ashbourne with its many facilities. This is a great location for touring the Peak District, visiting many scenic areas, stately homes such as Haddon Hall, Chatsworth and Sudbury, and opportunities for trips to Alton towers and trying watersports at Carsington reservoir. The Tissington trail and bike hire centre is also at the edge of the village.

Lovely Cottage in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Homely, comfortable cottage in a great location for walking and cycling. Walks and cycle rides right from the doorstep, the wonderful Tissington trail just down the road. Lovely secluded back garden with great views. Pub next door for reasonably priced food, but not too close to the Cottage to be a nuisance!

Free Wi Fi which is a bonus and a place to safely lock up your cycles.

Perfect country cottage

  • 5 of 5

Hawthorn cottage is a perfect country getaway within beautiful Derbyshire. Well equipped, clean and well maintained, the cottage itself is very cosy with a relaxing atmosphere. It's a wonderful destination for all seasons and keen walkers will find many walks from the door. Close to attractions like Dovedale and the pretty market town of Ashbourne, it has something for everyone, especially those who enjoy the amazing countryside on offer. We love it!
