S86654 is ideally located within walking distance of the local pub, shop and market town of Ashbourne. Ashbourne is situated in a beautiful green valley and is the southern gateway to the Peak District. A short distance from the River Dove, it is one of Derbyshire’s finest old market towns which still displays the original medieval street planning, with historic buildings and a wealth of high quality shops; the town’s appearance has changed little since the 18th century. The cobbled market place, hidden alleys and yards are a delight to explore. Its many fine historic buildings include St. Oswald’s Church, Owfield’s Almshouses and The Mansion. The towns past visitors include the famous writers Dr Johnson and James Boswell, and ‘Bonny Prince Charlie’, who stayed here on his march south to Derby in 1745. Clustered around the old market square and along the main street there are many boutiques, antique shops, bistros, food shops and pubs including Jack Rabbits, The Bridge with its lovely outside courtyard area, and The Artisan Bar serving local real ales and a large selection of gin.
Visit Ilam, located at the lower end of the River Manifold, a pretty village with a long history, dominated by a memorial cross erected in 1840. Further along the Manifold Valley is Throwley Hall where the ruins of a fine Elizabethan manor house can be found. Just off the Buxton-Ashbourne road is the village of Tissington, which is delightfully laid out with an imposing southern approach via a gateway and avenue of lime trees. Other places of interest in the area include Tissington Hall near Ashbourne with wonderful paintings, furniture and porcelain. The Tissington Trail cycle route, which follows the former Buxton to Ashbourne railway line, and Thor’s Cave in the Manifold Valley, which was first inhabited by Stone Age man, are also worth a visit. The cottage is ideally placed for the many picturesque walks in the Peak District National Park, including Dovedale with its famous stepping stones, as well as the many high peak trails. The market towns of Bakewell and Buxton are within easy reach, as are Matlock and Matlock Bath, along with the stunning country house estates of Chatsworth House, Kedleston Hall and Haddon Hall. Alton Towers is just a short drive away. Shop 250 yards, pub and restaurant 300 yards.
