Picturesque cottage
The cottage was a great size for just the four of us, it had everything we needed and was only a short drive to Alton towers. The village was lovely and quiet and it was easy to find. Just to warn others the drive to load and unload is very steep and I scratched the bottom of my bumper when we first arrived, which I wasn't happy about. I would advise leaving it on the road opposite and loading up there, unless you are driving a 4x4. Other than that it was perfect. Defiantly returning to do more exploring.

Superb Peak District location
This was our first holiday home experience, we received such a warming welcome from the moment of booking to arriving at Ash House. The owner was contactable & replied promptly advising us with everything we needed to know about the House,location,area etc. A lovely welcome pack was a great surprise on arrival. The location of Ash House is superb for visiting Alton Towers just being a 5min car journey away. So many places to visit nearby over the Peak District.

Alton is a lovely little village and Ash House was a great choice to stay. The house was lovely and relaxing which made our stay all the more enjoyable. Perfect for a family getaway or just a weekend away with friends!

Beautiful Cottage in Alton
We stayed here on the 5th Feb for 2 nights for my boyfriends birthday with some of his family. The cottage is absolutely beautiful and you immediately feel at home. The place was absolutely spotless and the housekeeper had even left us a little treat of red wine and a packet of lovely biscuits. The cottage in in the middle of Alton, there are lovely pubs close by serving great food. The closest pub The Bulls Head has recently closed down. Everyone in the village were very friendly and happy to point us in the right direction as we didn't really know the area. We visited Ashbourne on Saturday and also The Heights of Abraham which were close by and I would recommend. The cottage had plently of plates, glasses and cutlery if needed. There were 6 of us staying at the cottage, there are 6 double beds, and 2 singles. One thing to mention is one of the bedrooms (the loft) you have to walk through the second bedroom to get to it so may accidently wake people up during the night of you need to go the bathroom. This wasn't really a problem for us. I would definitely recommend this cottage to others and thank you so much to the housekeeper and owner for making our weekend :)

The cottage was absolutely beautiful, a real home from home. We had a brilliant time and would definitely recommend it to family and friends.
