The historic market town of Ashbourne is one of Derbyshire's finest old market towns and lies just a mile away from Hope Cottage. Famous for its antique shops, it also offers cafes, restaurants, bars, gifts and craft shops. Its cobbled market place and hidden alleys are a delight to explore, as is the elegant Church Street, which is considered to be one of the finest streets of Georgian buildings in Derbyshire.

Two miles from Hope Cottage is the Peak District National Park, with the picturesque villages of Ilam, Dovedale and Thorpe Cloud as a small example of the many areas of the park offering attractions including the Rock Pillars at Ilam, Viators Bridge in Milldale, the Stepping Stones which lead to the limestone carvings at Lover's Leap and Reynard's Cave. There are also several trails such as Tissington and High Peak, which weave through the countryside, providing popular recreational walks and cycle paths that follow former railway lines.


The rich historic heritage of the area provides Chatsworth House, Kedleston Hall amongst may others, whilst also enjoying Carsington Water, with its watersports and visitor centre and the fabulous theme park of Alton Towers less that 20 minutes away, make this an ideal place to both play, enjoy and relax.

Thank you for your response. It was very unfortunate that you did have service that was less than satisfactory from both ourselves and the agent. I cannot comment on the agent but from our point of view, I had gone into labour unexpectedly with my little girl and it had left us in a state of rush and confusion. We take on board your comments but can assure you that your experience is the exception rather than the norm and can only apologise once again for any failings on our part.
