Christmas Cottage is a quaint, early 19th century, mill workers cottage situated in the beautiful village of Clifton on the edge of the Peak District.

Tastefully decorated in a contemporary style it is an ideal retreat for a romantic break, walking holiday, sightseeing or for relaxing and getting away from it all.

Getting around
It’s about 30 minutes pleasant walk into the centre of Ashbourne, along the pavement, so easy to have a meal and drink in town and walk back. Regular buses run from Ashbourne to Derby and Uttoxeter but the best of the countryside is ideally seen on foot. We recommend bringing a car to visit lots of the local attractions.
