Lovely Cottage in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Homely, comfortable cottage in a great location for walking and cycling. Walks and cycle rides right from the doorstep, the wonderful Tissington trail just down the road. Lovely secluded back garden with great views. Pub next door for reasonably priced food, but not too close to the Cottage to be a nuisance!

Free Wi Fi which is a bonus and a place to safely lock up your cycles.

Perfect country cottage

  • 5 of 5

Hawthorn cottage is a perfect country getaway within beautiful Derbyshire. Well equipped, clean and well maintained, the cottage itself is very cosy with a relaxing atmosphere. It's a wonderful destination for all seasons and keen walkers will find many walks from the door. Close to attractions like Dovedale and the pretty market town of Ashbourne, it has something for everyone, especially those who enjoy the amazing countryside on offer. We love it!

A real home from home

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we entered the cottage, we felt right at home. The house was just as described, only better!! The whole house was clean, tidy and everything working. The owner had little notes around the house to help you during your stay. There was also a welcome tray, which was great. The location is divine, so quiet and peaceful, yet still close to the local town. Lots to see and do around this area, lovely walks, shopping etc. The garden too is delightful, a real haven if you want to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet. Our children also enjoyed the cottage, we are definitely planning to return next year, and have also recommended it to our friends. A++++++
