The Derbyshire region

Holly Cottage is near to the market town of Ashbourne in the Derbyshire Dales, on the edge of the Peak District. Ashbourne has a weekly market and provides excellent shops for either browsing or buying. On Shrove Tuesday the ancient game of Ashbourne football is played through the streets of the town, with as many as 400 people in each team. It's a sight to behold, however joining in is not for the fainthearted!!

The Peak District National Park was the first to be created in England, covering over 500 sq miles and is right on the doorstep. The beautiful countryside is ideal for walking and cycling. There are numerous towns and villages to explore, either on foor or by car. Many National Trust properties and stately homes are within easy reach, and the surrounding villages hold Well Dressing ceremonies throughout the summer, where the local residents decorate the village well with thousands of flower petals, as they have done for hundreds of years.

"Gorgeous, idyllic cottage"

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at Holly cottage, Ellastone (Ashbourne) which we booked from reading numerous reviews and from having a good look through the cottage information and photos. On arrival we were greeted by the owner Michele who showed us around and went through how things worked etc. and we also received a "welcome" pack of Milk, Biscuits, Tea and Coffee. We have to say that we were not disappointed with the cleanliness and excellent decor and the cottage had everything needed to make it a home from home which showed that a lot of thought has gone into it. There are some good walks around the village and the cottage is a handy base location for visiting many of the Derbyshire Peak district villages/ attractions. The Duncombe Arms pub is only a 5 minute walk away and serves real ales (as well as the usual beers), good wine and top notch food. A real gem of a cottage. Many thanks Michele.

Really glad that you enjoyed your stay Amanda, and I would love to welcome you back anytime (including Ollie who was a perfect genteleman).

"Lovely anniversary weekend"

A lovely cottage, very cosy and everything to a good standard. Some really nice touches - welcome pack, bed linen, towels, soap and shampoo - made it really easy. Lots to do in a lovely are. The restaurant at the village pub was very nice and only a 5 minute walk.

Welcome back any time. Lovely guests.
