Ashover, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England
This lovely cottage has three bedrooms and sleeps up to six people. It is on a peaceful, private lane in the small farming hamlet of Alton, in the award-winning parish of Ashover and is on the eastern side of the Peak District. There are fantastic views across the valley towards Hardwick Hall (National Trust) and Bolsover Castle (English Heritage). A short drive west across Beeley Moor takes you to Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall.

Columbine Cottage perfectly combines the comforts of modern living with the charm and character of a country cottage. It has been furnished and equipped to a high standard whilst retaining many original features. In recognition of this it has received a four star quality grading with a gold award by VisitEngland. The cottage also has its own private garden with barbecue and furniture for those lazy summer da...

I went to Columbine Cottage with a group of friends for Eastet break. Susan was fantastic from the very moment I booked. We were sent a handy pack of leaflets and information about the area. When we arrived, Susan was there to welcome us and show us the cottage. The Cottage was equipped with everything we needed for the weekend...

Everything of excellent quality from plates, cutlery to furnishings. Great added touch of detailed walks from cottage and leaflets of local attractions. Wi-fi added an extra touch. And everyone loved the...

About the neighbourhood
Alton is a small and welcoming farming village of around thirty stone cottages. A short stroll of less than half a mile takes you to the Fabrick Rock – also known as the Ashover Rock. This is 299 metres above sea level and, on clear days, offers spectacular views of Derbyshire and across five other counties: Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Staffordshire. Look for the stone steps carved into the hillside next to it and follow the public footpath to Ashover. Why not take a picnic and just enjoy the views. Alton is too small for a pub or a shop but several can be found in Ashover a mile away by road but closer if you go on foot cross-country following one of several footpaths down the hill. Ashover is frequently described as one of the prettiest villages in Derby... more
Getting around
There is excellent walking from the doorstep but we recommend a car for visiting the main attractions in the area. There are no bus routes within easy reach. The closest railway stations are in Chesterfield and Matlock, 5 miles away.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: East Midlands: 45.0 km
Railway: Chesterfield: 8.0 km
Ferry: Hull: 128.0 km
Our two cottages (Wildflower Cottages) are situated in the small village of Alton close to Ashover. They are 5 miles from both Matlock and Chesterfield but there is no public transport in the village so a car is recommended. Travelling time from either junction 28 or 29 of the M1 motorway is around 20 minutes.
Activities nearby
Fishing Nearby, There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive, Horse Riding Nearby.
