Cottage | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Our two adjoining cottages are usually booked separately but they are suitable for larger groups holidaying together, particularly where families and friends want to retain some degree of independence. There are 3 bedrooms in Columbine and 2 in Foxglove plus each cottage obviously has its own bathroom, kitchen and sitting room. You will find more photos of the interior of each cottage on their individual listings on Holidaylettings, or by clicking through to our own website.
Both cottages have a 4-star rating from Visit England and Columbine also has a gold award.
If you are looking for a venue that has the capacity for a large group of 10 to be together for meals then you may find that our cottages won't be suitable for you. Columbine Cottage (the larger of the 2) only has seating space for 6 people in the living and dining rooms.
You are welcome to bring one pet to stay in Foxglove Cottage but Columbine Cottage does not accept pets.

Bookings are made directly with the owners - we don't use booking agents so you won't be charged an agency fee. Booking is really easy. Choose which dates you want then email, phone or text us. We'll get back to you quickly - within 2 hours is our target.
Weekly bookings generally run from Saturday to Saturday during the summer. Short breaks of three nights usually run from Friday to Monday and if you book a four-night short break from Monday to Friday you get four nights for the same price as a three-night weekend break. We ask for a deposit on booking with the balance eight weeks before your holiday starts.
It is always worth contacting us if your requirements are different from this, particularly for late bookings or during the winter. We try to be as flexible as possible about start dates. If you would like any other information about Wildflower Cottages or the surrounding area please get in touch - we'll be happy to help you arrange the perfect holiday or short break.
Travel cot (suitable for babies up to 2 years old) on request.
The Heart of England/Peak District
The Peak District National Park covers 500 square miles across several counties and attracts visitors from around the world. Derbyshire is famous for its natural beauty from peaks and dales to picturesque villages. It really does have something for everyone – for the more energetic there is fantastic walking, sailing and climbing. It has more historic houses than you can shake a stick at – Chatsworth House (7 miles from here), Hardwick Hall (6 miles away) and Bolsover Castle to name just a few. Explore caves and caverns, visit a theme park, soar skywards in a cable car or ride on a vintage tram. Or why not simply wander around our many pretty towns and villages. Our visitors often comment on how centrally located our cottages are for reaching the many attractions of Derbyshire and the Peak District so it's no wonder many of them come back time and time again.
Alton is a small and welcoming farming village of around thirty stone cottages. A short stroll of less than half a mile takes you to the Fabrick Rock – also known as the Ashover Rock. This is 299 metres above sea level and, on clear days, offers spectacular views of Derbyshire and across five other counties: Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Staffordshire. Look for the stone steps carved into the hillside next to it and follow the public footpath to Ashover. Why not take a picnic and just enjoy the views.
If you like horse-riding or would you like to learn please visit Alton Riding School which is a few hundred metres from the cottages.
Alton is too small for a pub or a shop but several can be found in Ashover a mile away by road but closer if you go on foot cross-country following one of several footpaths down the hill. Ashover is frequently described as one of the prettiest villages in Derbyshire and it hosts a famous traditional country show on the 2nd Wednesday in August every year.
Chesterfield is 5 miles from here and is famous for its outdoor market and for the ‘Crooked Spire’ church of St Mary and All Saints, built in the 13th century. Please visit our website to discover more about local attractions and events.
