Features and Facilities

Rooms 1 bedroom

The Derbyshire region

Ogston Reservoir, 2.5 miles for water sports, birdwatching and fishing. Matlock and Matlock Bath is only 4 miles away with a cable car to the Heights of Abraham. Tour the mining museum or walk alongside the River Derwent.

Crich Steam Railway and Wirksworth are 8 miles. Take a short drive and visit Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Bakewell


Ashover is one of the prettiest villages in Derbyshire, with a 15th Century church, Ashover won the Calor Village of the Year competition in 2005. It has been said that the village is home to a couple of ghosts, including the Laughing Cavalier who haunts the Black Swan, and that arrows for the Battle of Agincourt were made here!

The village was important to the lead mining and quarrying industries and was also home to the stocking frame knitting industry, but little of that remains. Today, Ashover is valued for the beautiful countryside that surrounds it and better known for the Ashover Show in August and the Ashover Festival in September.

"Had a fantastic time in a lovely cottage"

This is a great base for visiting this area and The Retreat really felt like a home from home, it was warm and cosy and had everything you could need. The owners were very accommodating when we had to change our dates at the last minute. We would certainly come back again.
