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.

Lovely, authentic Peak District home, with original stone floors, low ceilings and real charm. In a great location to access walks and heritage sites in the park. It was very cosy sitting in the living room with a glass of wine and the gas fire on. Impeccably clean and tidy throughout, the kitchen was well equipped to make home-cooked meals.

Beautiful little cottage in a great location to explore the Peak District. Cottage had everything we needed. Not far from Bakewell and Monsal Head for the Monsal Trail and other routes. Ashford in the Water is a very picturesque village. Unfortunately due to the current situation the village shop wasnt open but there is an Aldi quite nearby- 20 minRead more walk. Bulls Head had good, typical pub menu- perfect after a good walk! Parking opposite the cottage was no problem. All in all a very nice break! Hide

Pros: Cosy, 2 great pubs, close to Bakewell (easy to walk), good walks around, good heating, great communication, perfect for couples Cons (didn't affect us but worth to note the following): On a road (that gets noisy at night with passing lorries), low ceilings, on road parking
