Hilltop Cottage

This pretty 300 year old, end-terrace, traditional cottage is situated in the small village of Kniveton, three miles from the historic market town of Ashbourne, Derbyshire. Perfect for a romantic break, the property is an excellent base for exploring the southern edge of the Peak District, with lots of walking and cycling opportunities. With bags of character, the cosy sitting room has beamed ceilings, panelled walls and a comforting woodburning stove, set in a stone alcove. The compact galley-style kitchen leads off from the sitting room, whilst the cottage stairs open into an attractive double bedroom, with a fully tiled en-suite shower room. Nicely furnished, with homely touches, this cosy cottage provides comfortable and charming accommodation. It's just a five minute walk to the friendly, local village inn and a few minutes’ drive to the popular market town of Ashbourne. This delightful town is renowned for its antique shops, good selection of restaurants and tea rooms, and narrow cobbled streets and market square. Surrounded by lovely rolling countryside, Kniveton is close to Carsington Water, which has many outdoor activities, including watersports and bike hire. Take a pleasant walk around the reservoir, a haven for birds, whilst enjoying the scenery. The splendid stately homes of Chatsworth House and Keddleston Hall are a short drive away and the pretty market town of Wirksworth is well worth a visit. An ideal property for couples, to explore this stunning limestone scenery.

One double bedroom with en-suite shower, basin and WC. Kitchen. Sitting room with dining area and woodburning stove.
