Foxglove Cottage - Ashover near Matlock

Overview
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Ashover, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England
Foxglove Cottage is full of character and is furnished and equipped to a high standard whilst retaining many original features. Foxglove sleeps four but we've discovered that it is a particular favourite with couples.

This cosy stone cottage is on a quiet, private lane in a small farming village on the eastern side of the Peak District. Step outside and enjoy the fabulous views towards Hardwick Hall. Try one of several recommended walks around the village – we provide guests with bespoke walks from the doorstep together with a selection of maps and guide books.

There is an open log fire – wonderful on a chilly evening - and we'll provide you with an initial supply of logs and coal free of charge. In the summer months we think you'll enjoy spending time in the private garden overlooking open fields.

You are welcome to brin...

About the neighbourhood
Alton is a small and welcoming farming village of around thirty stone cottages. A short stroll of less than half a mile takes you to the Fabrick Rock – also known as the Ashover Rock. This is 299 metres above sea level and, on clear days, offers spectacular views of Derbyshire and across five other counties: Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Staffordshire. Look for the stone steps carved into the hillside next to it and follow the public footpath to Ashover. Why not take a picnic and just enjoy the views. Alton is too small for a pub or a shop but several can be found in Ashover a mile away by road but closer if you go on foot cross-country following one of several footpaths down the hill. Ashover is frequently described as one of the prettiest villages in Derby... more

Our two cottages (Wildflower Cottages) are situated in the small village of Alton close to Ashover. They are 5 miles from both Matlock and Chesterfield but there is no public transport in the village so a car is recommended. Travelling time from either junction 28 or 29 of the M1 motorway is around 20 minutes. We provide parking for two cars at Foxglove Cottage.
