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.

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.

Fantastic Cottage and Pool

  • 5 of 5

We had a really relaxing week, the cottage was lovely, one of the best we have stayed in, very clean, warm and exceptionally well equipped, a real home from home. The pool was just the icing on the cake, lovely and warm and we made full use of it, such luxury to have it all to ourselves. The views over to Thorpe Cloud were great, as were the walks we did, albeit rather muddy due to heavy rain the previous week! There were plenty of places to eat not far from the cottage and we have left a few to try next time as we will be back just as soon as we can.

Cosy cottage, wonderful pool, great location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is lovely, especially cosy when you light the wood-burner on a wet, stormy evening. The pool is a perfect place to swim and relax. You might need the wellies to walk to Dovedale! We enjoyed exploring Ashbourne, and particularly loved the plentiful snowdrops in the garden and by the roadside.
