Activities & Eating

Chatsworth, Bolsover Castle, Haddon and Hardwick Halls are all within easy reach. Bakewell is about 9 miles away (20 minutes drive) whilst the historic market town of Chesterfield, with its famous crooked spire, is approximately 7 miles.

The cottage is located in an area with plenty of great walking, so feel free to browse the books and maps in the cottage or pick our brains for ideas.

There are many good pubs serving food in and around the pretty village of Ashover, although it is always advisable to book, particularly at weekends. We would be happy to advise and can usually arrange transport back from the village if you are fancying that extra drink!

For those wishing to have a quiet evening in, feel free to prepare drinks and light snacks in the cottage kitchen, otherwise we are happy to serve simple meals by prior arrangement.
