A charming detached stone cottage that is nestled in the heart of the Peak District National Park. A pretty village location with amenities right on the doorstep and delightful walks close by.

Little Cottage enjoys a wonderful location in the picturesque village of Ashford in the Water. The village has its own pub and restaurant ensuring guests have great options for dining out. Many amenities are accessible by foot, with a grocery shop just 80 metres from the cottage. Excellent walks through the Peaks are close by, or for something a bit gentler guests can take a relaxing walk long the riverbanks.

Guests enter the cottage via the lovely lounge area which contains comfy seating for relaxing and unwinding after a day spent exploring the rugged landscape of the Peak District National Park. The kitchen is located just off the lounge and is fully equipped with all the essentials that guests require during their stay and a dining table for those meals in. 

Upstairs there are two bedrooms. The main bedroom is a good size with a double bed and enchanting views across the rooftops of the village and the hills in the distance. The second bedroom has a single bed with another bed underneath which can be pulled out to go along side the first to make a double or twin room. The bathroom is located on this floor and consists of a bath with a shower-over, toilet and hand basin.

A door from the kitchen opens out onto a charming enclosed garden area that enjoys lovely sunshine and is an ideal spot for enjoying the goings on of village life.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

Well equipped, Traditional cottage in a lovely location

Reviewed by Wendy, 29th September 2018

A very bijou cottage which for its size was very well equipped and thought out. We were glad however, that there were only two of us and a large dog, as four people would have been very crowded (seating around the kitchen table for two only - eating in relays perhaps?) and it seemed impossible to make the bed in the second smaller bedroom into a doRead moreuble, as there would have been no room to move. Would recommend for two people only. Hide

The clue is perhaps in the name Little Cottage. Just about enough room for three adults and dog but not four. Excellent location in easy walk of pubs, tearoom and shop. Good walks into Bakewell and circular walk to Monsal Head. Nearby Thornbridge Hall Garden Chatsworth and Haddon hall. Well equipped kitchen but small dining table. Plenty of hot watRead moreer and heating. Hide

Location excellent for walking in the Dales, cottage extremely well equipped. Nice small garden, lovely view. Village very picturesque with good facilities. Parking tricky and I feel this is a 2 or at a push 3 person cottage rather than 4.

Reviewed by Kate, 11th August 2018

It is a lovely cottage in a great village, very clean and welcoming. It is very small for 4 people (2 were small children), mainly the smaller bedroom. There is parking outside the cottage by the garage but because of narrow road, only suitable for a small car. There is parking in a nearby road though. The garden appears bigger in the picture on thRead moree website but despite being small, has a couple of seating areas which is good. Great to have a park so close and the village is very pleasant.

Lovely little cottage, ideal location, only two minutes from the village stores and Bulls Head pub. Wonderful!!!!!

Reviewed by Gareth, 30th June 2018

The cottage is not big enough for 4 people. There was plenty of space for us as a couple with a dog, but the concept of pulling out a mattress from beneath the bed in the second bderoom is not viable. Overall, the cottage provides a good base to explore the local area. Many useful books and maps are provided.

Little Cottage is in a wonderful location. Only a few minutes walk away from a very well stocked village shop, two pubs and the church. A small but well designed cottage with a secure garden ideal for a dog and to sit out and enjoy a glass of wine.

The best equipped holiday cottage we have had. Excellent small grassed area for the dog and a delightful sheltered patio area to sit in the evenings. Everyone we met was helpful and friendly. Very good general grocers about 100 yards away. Good location for walks.

The cottage is in a really good location. You can walk to Bakewell in about 20 minutes. There are plenty of local walks. Pub and local shop within a very short walk, 2-3 minutes. My sons went rock climbing and loads of crags nearby and indoor climbing in Sheffield about 30 minutes away. Cottage is lovely.

Nice quant little cottage ideal for two. The village is great and very picturesque, the furniture all seemed pre owned, dated and worn, for the money it could do with a serious facelift. We still had a great time exploring the area and very well located

Beautifull little cottage in a picture postcard village ideally placed close to 2 village pubs. The black bull is a lovely traditional pub serving real ale with an open fire, highly recommended.

A lovely little cottage perfectly suited to its name and for our 3 day break. Essential to us was that dogs are welcome, even if the garden is small. As well as 2 labradors we were 2 adults + a teenager. Any more than 3 people would be a bit of a squash, but we were very happy. Ashford is delightful and a good walking base.

Reviewed by Pam, 16th October 2017

Little cottage is lovely, although two bedrooms, would be a bit cramped for family of four. Was ideal for my husband,me and our dog. Fully equipped, and in a lovely village with walks from the door step and close to 'Bakewell' and other towns and villages, also 'Chatsworth house'. Would highly recommend.
