The Heart of England/Peak District
There is a lot to experience in Derbyshire, many ancestral homes such as Chatsworth, Haddon Hall, Hardwick,and Kedleston. Endless walking and cycling along old railway tracks within the Peak District National Park. There are also the potteries nearby in Staffordshire. Equally there are the attractions of Alton Towers, Conkers, and many farms open to visitors.
Carsington Reservoir offers sailing and other water sports. Golf and fishing nearby.
Many, many local attractions advertised in the Ashbourne Tourist Centre.
Derbyshire also has its well known Well Dressings, which are worth seeing. Ashbourne, Buxton and Wirksworth have festivals during the summer.
The Coachman's cottage is situated in quiet countryside, just south of the pretty market town of Ashbourne. It is surrounded by fields with sheep, and gambolling lambs in the spring. Visitors are amazed by the peace and tranquillity, and leave feeling refreshed and revitalised.
It is possible to walk or bicycle from the cottage along the country lanes, and the Shoulder of Mutton is only a couple of miles away.
