Overview

About the property

Cottage in Thorpe, Nr. Ashbourne, Peak District - Uninterrupted Views of Thorpe Cloud Hills at Dovedale, on a Private 4 acre Estate

5 Star holiday cottage with its own private indoor pool. Situated in Thorpe, a delightful village at the southern end of the White Peak area of the Peak National Park, Thorpe Cloud View cottage is a charming holiday location within the four-acre grounds of, but set apart from, Thorpe House, a late Georgian limestone grade two listed building of considerable character. The cottage, allocated the top rating of five stars, has uninterrupted views of Thorpe Cloud, at the entrance to Dovedale, the limestone gorge which separates Derbyshire and Staffordshire. The surrounding areas provide excellent walking. The picturesque Derbyshire market town of Ashbourne is just some 3 miles away; the spa town of Buxton, and the historic houses of Chatsworth, Haddon Hall, Hardwick Hall and Kedleston are all within easy access. Alton Towers, the UK’s largest leisure park is only a twenty-minute drive away.

A lovely, cosy cottage with outstanding views and a luxurious pool.

  • 5 of 5

If you're after a genuinely relaxing getaway this is the place for you. The well-kept cottage has everything you need, all clean and in good working order. We particularly enjoyed the pool, perfect for unwinding at the end of the day & great to have the luxury of it all to yourselves. There's plenty to see and do close at hand to suit everyone. We went to the Peak Wildlife Park, the caves at Castleton and the Heights of Abraham. There's also some fantastic walks close by. Would not hesitate to recommend this place. Thanks Ray and Julie.

Beautiful cottage, the pool is a pleasure. This is an ideal base for plenty of walks.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage, with everything you need for a most enjoyable holiday.

Excellent starting point for lots of walks, and near to Ashbourne for pubs and shopping. Having your own pool is brilliant.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

It's a beautiful little cottage, it's comfy, clean and a great quite location to explore the local area. The owners have provided everything you need. Good spacious kitchen. The jewel of course is the pool, a lot bigger than I was expecting and no matter what the weather, a lovely place to jump in the pool and relax in the jacuzzi.

most beautiful place we have ever stayed

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was absolutely lovely in the most beautiful location, with close views of Thorpe Cloud and the surrounding hills. Secluded and tucked away and yet only a couple of miles from the town of Ashbourne. We will certainly be returning next year, as there is so much to do and see in this picturesque area. Chickens come and visit the garden, ewes with lambs just over the stone wall, rabbits and lots of birds too. If you love nature and peaceful surroundings this is the place to come. We used the private heated swimming pool every day at least once, which has a jacuzzi , shower and toilet and relaxing loungers. A real bonus. To us it's by far the nicest cottage and location we have ever stayed in, and by the way we do travel a lot, but it's outstanding and it's got everything. Thank you Ray and Julie for letting us stay, we promise to see you again.
