On the edge of the Peak District sits the picturesque market town of Ashbourne. With quaint cobbled streets, hidden alleyways and Georgian buildings, Ashbourne exudes charm and character. A host of good restaurants, high quality shopping outlets, beautiful countryside and fascinating attractions make this a brilliant place to come for a family holiday.
The town has more than 200 listed buildings, so take a wander and absorb the historic atmosphere with almshouses, townhouses and coaching inns just some of the interesting architecture you can expect to see here. The beautiful Old Grammar School is worth a look, and have your photo taken next to the longest inn sign in the world at The Greenman pub! The beautiful St. Oswald’s Parish Church must be mentioned too, its towering spire watching over the town.
When it’s time for a rest, settle down for a cuppa and home-baked delights in one of the town’s wonderful tea rooms, cafes, pubs or restaurants. Don’t miss Bird’s Bakery, where you can pick up a piece of Ashbourne Gingerbread, whose origins date back to the Napoleonic wars.
As for the surrounding area, there’s much to explore. Take a walk along the scenic Tissington Trail into Dovedale, or head for the Pennine Bridleway for another picturesque stroll. Ashbourne is known as the Gateway to Dovedale, and it is perfectly positioned for appreciating the unparalleled landscapes surrounding the southern White Peak.
