Property code: PK249

This 300-year-old property is a quintessential chocolate box cottage nestled in the heart of a popular village with plenty to see and do without having to get in the car. Walking distance to the village's amenities.

Ashford in the Water is a quaint Derbyshire village situated in the White Peak. Home to the most photographed bridge in Britain which crosses the River Wye, it boasts two pubs, a pretty church, tea room, village store and delicatessen and plenty of charming cottages. If you’re looking to soak up a bit of history during your stay, historic Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are only a short drive away.

The cottage is approached via the pretty walled front garden, which leads into the cosy sitting room. With a beamed ceiling, original gritstone fireplace with cast iron gas stove, an exposed stone wall and even a charming window seat, this is the perfect space in which to relax after a long day’s walking or cycling. At the rear of the cottage is the kitchen dining room, which features a slate floor, cream units, a farmhouse style dresser and small kitchen table. With a vaulted ceiling and door leading out to the yard, this is a light and airy room for cooking and enjoying your meals.

Upstairs, the large bedroom has been decorated in the same fresh, clean tones, and features a large window, original fireplace and TV, while the bathroom next door is yet another light and airy space. At the rear of the cottage a shared yard leads to outbuildings, handy for storing bikes and there is a quiet spot to sit with table and chairs. The sunny patio at the front is complete with a pretty patio table and chairs – a lovely spot to enjoy a morning coffee, take in scents from the thriving flower beds beyond and watch the world go by.

A lovely little cottage in a beautiful small village. Close to several footpaths across the hills. Two village pubs offering good food and drink are also within a very short walk.

We had a fantastic stay at Thorpe Cottage which we found comfortable, very clean and well equipped. Ashford in the Water is a charming, peaceful village and Bakewell close by had everything you could need. We enjoyed our Trekking in the dales and it was a convenient location for visiting family in Sheffield.
