Lovely visit for New Year
Beautiful cottage and very well equipped. We stayed as a family of 4 plus parents so 6 in oh and plus our dog. there was plenty of space, everything we could of needed I even managed to cook a full roast for us on New Year's Day. Beautiful village with plenty to do in the surrounding area. perfect home from home.

Lovely place to stay
What a beautiful and cosy cottage! Really nicely decorated and very well equipped with everything we needed. Was very clean and comfortable and had some very useful info and maps of walks in local area. Lovely touch that we were greeted by a bottle of wine, biscuits and some bread when we arrived. Really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it for a group of friends or families.

Brilliant and lovely
Haven't even finished my stay yet but I have to say how lovely the house is in every aspect and how brilliant your housekeepers have been letting us in when we have locked ourselves out!!

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.
