Little Cottage and Top Cottage - Ashford-in-the-Water

    The Little Cottage and Top Cottage offer holiday cottage self-catering accommodation in the delightful village of Ashford in the Water, Derbyshire, close to the old market town of Bakewell in the heart of the Peak District National Park.

    Ashford in the Water is situated on the banks of the River Wye, close to Monsal Dale, in the centre of some excellent walking country and well placed for visiting all the major attractions of the area.

    Ashford in the Water is one of the most picturesque of Peak District villages. It also has a well-stocked shop and delicatessen and two pubs, both of which serve excellent food.


    The Little Cottage.
    The Little Cottage offers comfortable holiday accommodation for up to 4 people. From the upstairs rooms there are glorious views of the village and the hills beyond.

    The Little Cottage lies on Hill Cross, a steep little street which was once the main road northwards from the river crossing at Ashford in the Water. This road was part of The Portway, an Iron Age route from the Derby area to the hill fort of Mam Tor, in the Hope Valley.

    On entering via the front door you go into the comfortable lounge, which has two settees, TV and a set of open stairs leading to the first floor.

    Off the lounge is the well-equipped kitchen, which has an electric cooker / oven, fridge, microwave etc. There is a washing machine available in the external garage. From the kitchen a door leads outside to the garden.

    At the rear of the cottage there is a small enclosed garden with patio area and garden furniture, well placed to catch the afternoon sunshine.

    Going up the stairs from the lounge leads you to a landing, off which open two bedrooms and a bathroom.

    The first bedroom has a double bed and a fine view across the village of Ashford.

    The second bedroom contains a single bed with a second bed stored beneath it.

    The bathroom has a toilet, washbasin and bath, with an electric shower fitted over the bath.
