This old blacksmiths cottage offers space and tranquillity within a stone’s throw of the popular Derbyshire village of Ashford in the Water. Includes a peaceful riverside location with meadow views.

Here, you’ll find plenty of places to shop, eat and relax beside the babbling River Wye. Nestled in the heart of the national park, walkers will enjoy exploring the contrasting scenery of the higher and wilder Dark Peak in the north and the gently rolling limestone dales of White Peak in the south. Inside, an open-plan kitchen, dining and sitting area welcomes you into the cottage.

Inside, an open-plan kitchen, dining and sitting area welcomes you into the cottage. With slate floors and walls of a warm light shade throughout, this is an inviting space to enjoy your evening meal, a game at the coffee table or a peaceful read on the sofa. The coal effect stove and exposed beam add character to this large room, while the kitchen is light and airy with everything you should need throughout your stay. Also on this floor is a cloakroom and downstairs toilet. Upstairs, the bedroom has been painted in the same inviting light airy shade, and a vaulted ceiling, pretty stained glass windows and an exposed beam add more character. Adjoining the bedroom is the shower room with shower cubicle, hand basin and toilet. Parking is by the cottage. Outside, the private garden is bordered by the free-flowing River Wye. With an abundance of wildlife and views across the weir to the meadow beyond, this is a soothing setting for your afternoon cup of tea or evening drink.
