“Beautiful home in ideal location” Very well presented and well equipped house in quiet street . Interesting walks around the Mayfield Villages. Good pubs nearby. Ideally situated for exploring southern end of Peak National Park. Would go back.
“Beautiful, well equipped, comfortable and a cut above the norm for self catering accomodation.” Swallows Cottage is a superb property. It oozes style and comfort from the moment you walk in. It is beautifully furnished, very clean and well equipped. Bedding and towels are all high quality and so clean and plentiful. We were lucky enough to stay in 30 degree sunshine so the pool was brilliant. The pool, like the cottage is clean and well kept. The surrounding gardens are immaculate and very pretty. The owners Izzy and Simon were very welcoming and despite the fact that their home is next door it did not feel instrusive at all. Our children ( 11and 7) loved the place and did not want to leave. I agree that it is unsuitable for really young children as I think you would be anxious about them making a mess of the lovely furniture, carpets etc and there is a pond in the gardens. It provides a base for a really relaxing holiday and we will definately be 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.

“Great break for larger groups!” We had a fab time at Orchard Barn & Anvil Cottage, the number of bedrooms and layout suited us well. It was great to have everyone around the table at mealtimes and the decked areas are great little sun traps :) great location for lots of days out. Would recommend!
“Excellent facilities for the whole family and customer service outstanding” The property catered for our family ages 7years to 80 years very well.
The welcome hamper including birthday cake was well chosen..
The bedrooms were supremely comfortable and the whole experience was superb.
Proximity to the town and Derbyshire make this large house ideal for a break.

Station Street Town Apartment
Brilliant hosts, great apartment!
I would recommend this to anyone! Many of the other reviews talk about everything this apartment has to offer and it did not disappoint. Sandra was very flexible allowing us to store out bikes in her shed and letting us check out late on our final day as she did not have another booked. A lovely couple, a great apartment and a brilliant holiday.
I am sorry we didn't get to speak to you before we left, but thank you so much Sandra - it's just what we needed! …

A lovely family house
This is a lovely family house and Diana and Jo want you to enjoy it. This is not a business, this is a passion and a very loved home. Welcoming presents for the grandchildren and grandma whose birthday we were celebrating. All the kitchen staples provided so we did not have to worry about them on our arrival. A well equipped kitchen, lovely lounges and bedrooms, all with a high standard of cleanliness. And a fantastic garden with a summer house and two patios for outside eating and drinking. And a great selection of inside and outdoor games. We arrived Friday evening and departed Monday morning. On our first day we went out and explored. On the second day we were so delighted with the house and garden we changed our plans and decided to stay at the house, enjoy the garden and wander around Ashbourne. We had a wonderful weekend and would definitely recommend this house and would definitely come again. …
