“EXCELLENT OLD BAKERY!”
Reviewed 23 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We have just returned from a most enjoyable 3 night stay at The Old Bakery Cottage in Ashford in the Water - and what an absolute pleasure it was!

Due to a mistake on my behalf when booking (I booked the wrong dates), I had to contact the owner to try a re-book the correct dates and he could not have been more helpful - what a great guy - nothing was too much trouble, contact was easy; I didn't have to wait hours before I received a reply - it was almost instantaneous - based on the customer service we received, we just knew the holiday was going to be a success - and we were not disappointed. Many thanks to the owners +AAA

The Cottage is beautiful, comfortable, clean and cosy. The owners have done such a wonderful job of making this cottage one of the best we have ever stayed in.

The village of Ashford in the Water is beautiful, peaceful and friendly.

There are 2 good pubs - The Bulls Head and The Ashford Arms. We mostly went in The Bulls Head, where the food is very, very good and you get a warm welcome too! The Aisseford Tea Rooms are great - we had a cooked breakfast and the teapots are the biggest we have seen - which is good!!!!

All in all our stay was a great success and it was mostly down to the cottage itself - we were sorry when we had to leave!!

Well done to the owners of The Old Bakery - a truly wonderful short break.

“An amazing property and great location.”
Reviewed 5 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Up on arrival we were greeted and handed the keys. From the moment we stepped through the door it felt like home. Recently renovated to an exceptional standard, we were both very impressed. We stayed for 3 nights only wishing we didn’t have to leave at the end! The cottage has loads of character and is very cosy on those cold nights. Everything we could ever need was supplied.

The cottage itself is in a great location within the peak district with Chatsworth and Bakewell only a short drive away (Chatsworth is well worth a visit especially the farm shop, were you find yourself spending a fortune if you’re not careful!).There is also a nice short circular walk up to Monsal Head that starts at the top of the hill which is worth an amble, nothing too strenuous!(http://www.theaa.com/walks/through-monsal-dale-the-valley-of-the-gods-420249). The village itself is nice and quiet with a couple of good pubs of which we also enjoyed!

All in all, I can not rate this property high enough, for us it was a perfect getaway and will definitely be back soon! Many thanks!!
