Very Good

“Delightful Derbyshire”

Reviewed 4 Nov 2020

The ‘Retreat’ is a lovely cottage in a very quiet and relaxing position in the village of Ashover. It’s a great base from which to explore Derbyshire, with places like Bolsover castle, Chatsworth house and Hardwick Hall to name just a few. Towns like Bakewell, Matlock and Matlock Bath are always worth a visit. All in all a very good weekend.
