For those with a passion for historical Houses, Chatsworth, Sudbury Hall, Hardwick Hall, Kedleston Hall, Tissington Hall just to name a few are all within easy drive from Ashbourne. Matlock Bath, Bakewell and Buxton are all within half an hour drive.


Set in the rolling hills of the Peak District, the Historic town of Ashbourne is brimming with independent shops. Renowned as a popular place for antiquing, its cafes and restaurants nestle comfortably around the cobbled streets and Market place.

The hidden alleyways and yards are a delight to explore, and the wide and elegant Church Street is considered to be the finest street of Georgian buildings in Derbyshire.

Ashbourne offers a wide selection of fine pubs and eateries. Traditional butchers, bakers and an excellent fish and game monger will ensure you can taste the abundance of local produce.

Ashbourne is known as the gateway to Dovedale and it really does act as a great place to base yourself, with public transport linking you to the surrounding areas nearby. Trains from nearby Derby are only 1.45hrs from London.

Thank you for your kind feedback and for your idea about making more room for parking at the back of the property. We will definitely have a look to see if it will work better. I'm afraid we had not thought of it as smaller cars have always been fine to park in the drive but we do need to account for larger cars.
Thank you again for your comments on the house we are pleased you would like to return - it makes all the hard work worthwhile when we hear that from our guests.
