Holly Cottage - a touch of luxury in the Derbyshire Dales.
Lovely cosy cottage
We stayed here for 2 nights for our wedding anniversary and it was a lovely stay. The cottage was spotless and very welcoming and the local pub was lovely also. The cottage is in a very quiet location which was just what we needed to recharge our batteries. The only thing that might be a nice idea is a little tv in the bedroom but other than that we really couldn't fault it. Would definitely recommend …
Station Street Town Apartment
Great stay in perfect location
This property is ideally suited to exploring Ashbourne and the surrounding area, finding the Tissington Trail just a few mins walk away was an extra bonus. There are also shops and eateries within easy walking distance to the property. The apartment itself has been well thought out and has everything you should need. The welcome pack of chocolates and wine was a lovely touch. Secure off road parking was particularly important to us having a hire car and this was a rare find for accommodation within the town. We have family in Ashbourne and will definitely return here for future visits if it's available.
We highly recommend this property to anyone wishing to explore Ashbourne and the Peak district. Thank you Sandra for being such a welcoming host and for a great stay! …
The Coachman's Cottage
Lovely character cottage in great setting
This is a very well equipped and well presented character cottage. Everything you need is provided, although if you haven't cooked on a Rayburn before it takes some getting used to! Beds are incredibly comfortable and the newly appointed bathrooms are very nice. The grounds are beautiful and provided just the quiet, relaxed break we were looking for. It's dog friendly, although our Flat Coat Retriever did manage to escape! Fortunately, the surrounding grounds are easily accessible so he was easily retrieved! The hot tub is great and made for a very relaxing end to each day. Nearby countryside is beautiful and Ashbourne is very quaint and only a short distance away. The owners were very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. …

The perfect get away
Me and my fiancé wanted to have a relaxed get away and this was perfect. Clean, comfortable, has everything we needed from the kitchen, loved how they provided games and mindful colouring books in the living room. We went for nice long walks through the village and a quick trip to stepping stones which was lovely. Definitely recommend this lovely gem for anyone looking to have a relaxed comfortable get away. Local shops, supermarkets and restaurants very close too.

Hollybank House is a really lovely place. My family had a great time here celebrating a birthday and visiting places around this area.
The house is ideal for a family with children. Jo and Diane have put so much thought into the house and the games that are there for the children to play with. A truly lovely place. …
