Ashbourne , Derbyshire
The old and the new come together in perfect unison at this 17th century cottage, a few minutes' walk from Ashbourne's town centre and just minutes by car from the Peak District National park.
Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 3 nights
Just minutes from the historic market town of Ashbourne, 46 Church Street is a hop, skip, and barely a jump from the Peak District National Park. The cottage is a grade 2* listed building that was originally an Almshouse. Its beautiful rustic exterior is perfectly in-keeping with the late Medieval aesthetics of the town’s most striking buildings.
The interior is equipped with a wonderful array of modern amenities, but its quaint period features will ensure you don’t get too distracted by the impressive conveniences. With a fantastic blend of 17th Century architecture, 20th Century interior design, and 21st Century technology with Fibre broadband in all rooms and garden, this market town marvel is sure to satisfy everyone, from the history buff to the social media influencer.
46 Church Street is decked with heavy timber beams, sandstone walls and quirky period features, including two front doors. Carefully decorated in a contemporary style, it has all the homely touches that lend it a warm and comforting air. The open planned ground floor has a modern kitchen with dining space for four, an adjoining bathroom with walk-in shower, and a spacious lounge complete with a luxurious three-seater sofa (not to mention a wood-burning stove). Lounge entertainment includes a wall mounted Sony Bravia 43” 4K HDR TV with sound bar and bass box, Sky Q with Airplay, Sky Cinema and Netflix.
Upstairs you will find a spacious study with its own desk, chair and sofa, perfect for catching up on some work, or just relaxing with a good book. In the adjacent bedroom – accessed through a unique triangular wooden door – you will find a king size bed, finished with Egyptian cotton sheets, couples robes, and a wall mounted 32” HD TV. Outside and to the front of the property lies the tranquil garden. Grab a bottle of wine, two glasses, and relax as the sun sets. This little slice of heaven is the perfect couple’s escape for anybody wanting to switch off and let the modern world fade away.
Ashbourne is renowned for its quaint independent shops, various pubs and many examples of historical architecture. Historically a market town - since the granting of its Charter in 1257 - the cobbled marketplace still plays host to one every Thursday and Saturday. This wonderfully situated town is close to some of middle England’s most visited attractions. If it’s an adrenaline rush that you’re seeking, then Alton Towers theme park is a 20-minute drive away. For those wanting to soak up the area’s abundant natural beauty then the 13-mile Tissington Trail starts just 50 metres from the cottage and winds its way into the magnificent Peak District National Park.

Thank you to Clive and Mari for a lovely, relaxing holiday - even impending lockdown couldn't spoil our visit! They were wonderful hosts - friendly and approachable, full of information and keen to make sure we enjoyed our stay as much as possible. The location was great! Ashbourne has lots of places to eat, drink and shop whilst the beautiful Peak District is only minutes away. However, the cottage itself was the real star - historical charm with modern, high-quality appliances and carefully selected furniture. Clive and Mari have clearly put a lot of love and care into 46 Church Street, I highly recommend experiencing it for yourself!

Thank you for an amazing stay, we found it very hard to leave. You have created such a warm & welcoming atmosphere, we felt at home instantly. The log burner and mood lighting persuaded us to stay in an order a take away the first night. The second night we cooked (after visiting kinder downfall), the cottage provides everything you could possibly need to create a delicious meal, not to mention the quality of all of the appliances/utensils. The rest of the cottage is also decked out with quality items. There is much more that I could write, but you may as well experience it for yourselves! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a romantic break away.
