Excellent accommodation We had a wonderful stay at Grey Roofs. My mum, myself and my dog. The property is not the most obvious to find, sat nav takes you down the wrong drive about 1 min away, so perhaps a sign pointing you in the right direction from the main road entrance would be helpful. We kind of stumbled upon it really, but the owner lives so close if you do miss it and phone him, he will come and guide you in so not a major issue. Grey Roofs was everything we wanted for our weeks stay in the Peak District. We arrived to a wonderful unexpected hamper with enough in it for a full English breakfast for our first morning, plus a pack of treats for our dog. We have stayed in many cottages in England and never had a welcome hamper this well stocked before, it was a lovely and much appreciated gift. We have a small dog so an enclosed secure garden with at least a small patch of grass is the first thing we look for and this property has that 100%. In fact there is a historic abbey who's ruins form part of the secure garden enclosure, which adds so much character. The location is peaceful, you are not overlooked by other properties so very quiet and private. The bedrooms are spacious with plenty of wardrobe space in both bedrooms, the beds are comfortable with plenty of spare floor space. The shower is large and forceful. The living room is light with patio doors leading into the garden, the sofas are comfortable.. There is a smart TV, and for those that like to watch TV, it is set up with access to Netflix, Amazon Prime etc so you won?t be short of things to watch. There is also a TV in every room including the kitchen. The kitchen is well equipped and modern, it was not missing anything that we could see. This is without doubt one of my favourite properties we have stayed in and we will be returning to stay again when we next come to the area. There is plenty to see and do around Ashbourne. We are keen walkers with our dog, so this is a little of what we found and recommend:- Carsington Water Is about 15-20 min drive and is a massive reservoir built in 1992, you can do a variety of walks from 1 mile to less than 9 miles around the whole reservoir, great all weather easy access path around it, visitor centre there does wonderful food. The grounds around the Chatsworth are lovely with plenty of different walks available, food court area at Chatsworth dog friendly. Tissington village with its tea rooms is dog friendly and worth a visit. Eyam the Plague village is interesting and pretty and tea rooms dog friendly. Explore the Tissington Trail and Monsal trails at various starting points. Going to a visitor information centre is great as they have lots of walking books in and around each village and area so this helps you to plan what you want to see and do, they have various books and leaflets like circular pub walks, circular dog walks, tea room walks, river walks, dale and Moore walks, short walks and long walks, they have step by step guide instructions with parking locations and info on what you will see on walk. Another tip is to download the ifootpath app, you can search for walks in particular areas by length/terrain/ease of walk etc. What ever you choose to do on your stay , I hope you enjoy Grey Roofs as much as we did. 100% recommend and a big thank you to Dean the Property owner for our hamper and making us feel so welcome Clare S 2019-09-12
Fabulous stay We have just got back after a week at the Grey Roofs cottage which is only a few miles from Ashbourne.The accommodation certainly lived up to the pictures and more.It is down a long lane which makes it very private and beautifully quiet, which we love. The whole cottage has been kitted out very tastefully and is very clean. The under floor heating was amazing and kept us incredibly warm and cosy to the extent that we didn't even need to light the woodburner. It is also a great dog friendly place with a brilliant fully enclosed courtyard, so no need to worry about your dog getting out. It is also surrounded by fields, one of which you can walk your dog safely.
There are lots of lovely places to go walking within the area, Dovedale,Carsington Water,Tissington trail, just a few we managed to visit. Although we didn't take the bikes this time it is certainly a great area if you are a cyclist, beautiful countryside.
Dean was very friendly and he even came to the top of the drive in his van to help us find our way to the cottage when we arrived.
We would have no hesitation in book this cottage again and would certainly recommend it to family and friends. SueD58_12 2019-01-25
