Cottage -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Ashbourne, Derbyshire, England
The end one of a row of 17th century Grade II listed almshouses, this quaint little stone cottage offers the perfect romantic break. A wealth of oak beams and original exposed brickwork give it a unique atmosphere, enhanced by the owners' careful choice of furnishings and fittings. The kitchen, complete with beamed ceiling, ceramic sink and granite worktops, combine up to date facilities with old world charm. This leads into the lounge, with stone lintels and leaded window panes and an electric stove to make it cosy all year round. Upstairs you feel like you are stepping back in time and indeed have to 'step through' a door in the brick and beams wall into the main bedroom. This room is full of character too and boasts a Victorian style bed and chandelier light.

About the neighbourhood
A fine old market town, with good shopping, especially for antiques. An ideal base for visiting the Peak District or Alton Towers.

Described as 'The Gateway to Dovedale', Ashbourne has much more to offer.
Ashbourne became a busy and fashionable social centre for the wealthy during the Georgian period, with six coaching roads meeting at the town, including the route from London to Carlisle.

Ashbourne's legacy of more than 200 listed buildings, fine coaching inns an...
