Key Info
  • Not suitable for children
  • Car not necessary
  • Some pets are welcome - please contact the owner

The end one of a row of 17th century Grade II listed almshouses, this quaint little stone cottage offers the perfect romantic break. A wealth of oak beams and original exposed brickwork give it a unique atmosphere, enhanced by the owners' careful choice of furnishings and fittings. The kitchen, complete with beamed ceiling, ceramic sink and granite worktops, combine up to date facilities with old world charm. This leads into the lounge, with stone lintels and leaded window panes and an electric stove to make it cosy all year round. Upstairs you feel like you are stepping back in time and indeed have to 'step through' a door in the brick and beams wall into the main bedroom. This room is full of character too and boasts a Victorian style bed and chandelier light.

The Heart of England/Peak District

Church Street, where Pegge's Almshouses are situated, is considered to be the finest street of Georgian buildings in Derbyshire. The cottage is tucked just off this main street, within a few minutes walk of shops, cafes, pubs and leisure facilities (including an indoor swimming pool). Ashbourne is an ideal choice for a short break or longer holiday, combining a wealth of historic buildings and high quality independent shops in a street scene that has changed little in appearance in the last 200 years. The cobbled market place, hidden alleys and yards are a delight to explore, with a superb choice of delicatessens, cafes and galleries. At the end of Church Street the graceful spire of St Oswald's dominates the skyline, worth a visit to see the splendid carved monuments. The Tissington Trail, a former railway line now converted into a traffic free route for walkers, cyclists and horse riders comes right into the town centre near the cottage and offers cycle hire and miles of peaceful cycling amidst superb countryside. Just to the north of Ashbourne is Dovedale, a famed beauty spot where the crystal clear waters of the River Dove are edged by spectacular limestone scenery. To the south is the National Trust's Sudbury Hall and Kedleston Hall, two grand country estates not to be missed.

"Amazing little cottage"

We loved our stay, the cottage is brilliant, the shower is amazing and an added bonus there's a dishwasher! It's also in a fantastic location, walking distance to the town and a sainsburys. The Tissington Trail is just outside your door, and just further up is where you can hire bikes, I can't wait to go back!

"Beautiful luxury property in ideal location"

My husband and I recently spent 3 nights at Pegges Almhouse Cottage to celebrate my birthday and enjoyed everything about our stay. The property was even nicer in reality than the photos showed. We were greeted by wine and biscuits on the kitchen table as a lovely welcome. The property was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated and attention to detail fantastic. Beautiful crisp white bedding on the comfy bed and we were provided with lovely white fluffy towels, it was like being in a top class hotel. The cottage is situated within a 5 minute walk from the centre of Ashbourne so a lovely base to pop out in the evenings for food and a drink without having to worry about driving. But also a great location for many local walks and the start of the Tissington Trail. Loads to do and see in the wider area and we cant wait to return to explore this beautiful part of the countryside a little more. Thanks to Maria and Ian for a fantastic short break away. Carolyn and Dave Howells
