    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 8
    This is a stone built property dating back to the 17th century but fully refurbished with wood and slate floors, gas fired central heating & double glazing throughout. Originally it was part of the old Red Lion Coaching Inn, the cottage sits adjacent to the superb real ale haven that is The Old Poets Corner with hops, beams and open fires the 'perfect' country pub. Also close by is the quaint Ashover Brewery. Step out of the door to see beautiful views and walk footpaths along the river Amber and Ashover Light Railway trail down to Ogston reservoir. Ashover won the prestigious Calor Village of the Year competition in 2005 but many other places of interest are only a short drive away, Chatsworth, Bakewell, Matlock, Crich & Chesterfield for starters.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed here for five days at the beginning of august and we had such a great time. The cottage is attached to the pub which sells its own beer and ciders as well as all the other things you would expect. The photos of the cottage interior do not do it justice! Its big, loads of space both in the bedrooms and the living area and the kitchen is fantastic and the bathroom too. We brought our dog with us and when we arrived there was a big bowl ready to fill with water for him after the long journey. We found the cottage clean and well maintained and the owners and pub staff very helpful. Like I said in the title, it was perfect for us. The village is lovely too and we did all the suggested walks direct from the cottage front door so we didn't necessarily have to drive again after we had arrived. Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again. Great value for money. more
