Lovely country cottage - ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

Stable cottage is a wonderful location for a stay in the Peak District. Good walks and bike rides on your doorstep. The cottage is well equipped and furnished .Ann and George were welcoming and we felt at home immediately. The weather was good and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the garden and lovely weather .

Immaculate and comfortable property ,everything we hoped it would be well located will return

  • 5 of 5

On the edge of the beautiful village of Ashton on the Water and less than 3/4 mile from Monsal Head the property is perfect for a walking trip. The house itself was stunning clean and well equipped. A really well converted stable. The house file pointed us to some beautiful walk and George thanks for sending us to The Manners in Bakewell great lunch.

Home from home but not far from home.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend here at the end of January and it was lovely. A bit difficult to find on the dark drizzling Friday night but the instructions helped.

The cottage is lovely and warm, with underfloor heating downstairs. We weren't too sure how to change the temperature as the room stats seemed to programmed. It's all superbly fitted out as though it's was someone's own home.

The entrance hall has coat hanging space and space for kicking off shoes so that they are out of the way, the sitting room is snug especially when we lit the wood burning stove. Nice dining area that leads off to downstairs we/shower room that is really well finished.

The kitchen is all bespoke oak with everything you need. We had a few issues with the oven and it would have been easier if a full set of instructions were on hand. The only issue we had was burning ourselves on the oven as there were no oven gloves provided, we resorted to using the gloves provided for the wood burner.

It's a great location for walks from the door and if it was drier/less muddy it would be easy to get to the pub rather than walking along the road which can be busy at night.

We loved our stay and will hopefully be back at some point this year.

Stable Cottage, Ashton in the Water

  • 5 of 5

Great for a break. Comfortable, friendly attention from our hosts - and Monty the dog.On a farm in the countryside yet easily accessible to Bakewell, numerous lovely walks, and many flatish bike rides. We were bowled over by the autumn beauty of the Peak District, and staying here made the week even more memorable. We hope to have the chance to return before too long.

Fabulous cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed at Stable Cottage for the October half term week. The cottage itself is finished to a very high standard with some lovely woodwork throughout adding to the charm. There was plenty of room for the four of us and the warm and cosy cottage was very well equipped with everything you could want; lovely to find great showers in both bathrooms too! The cottage is ideally situated with easy access to the lovely village of Ashford in the Water and larger local towns like Bakewell, Buxton and Matlock. We found several excellent places to eat and drink nearby and if you like walking you couldn't wish for a better place to stay; there are some fantastically scenic walks right on the doorstep. We thoroughly enjoyed our week and will definitely be looking to go back in the not too distant future. Highly recommended.

We had a lovely stay at Stable Cottage - Ann and George are friendly & helped make our stay special

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is both well equipped and quirky. Has everything you need for a lovely stay and the garden is so pretty, we sat outside a lot for meals and relaxing. It's very close to the MonsalTrail and Monsal Head. Some great walks all around and Bakewell only 3 miles away which can be walked along the trail. Great parking. Good buses too. Our dogs loved it. If I have one thing as a downside it is the road outside which is difficult to walk in certain places but this is because of the cars and can't be helped. However, next to the farm gates is a bridle path you can use to avoid the road. Brilliant and the scenery around is wonderful.
