“Everything you need.”
Reviewed April 10, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Stayed over the easter break and did not want to come back. If you are clean freak then this is the right place to stay. Perfect location right in middle town. Eating out places and Grocery shops like sainsbury's literally 5 walk. Parking is easy to find throughout the day, not too far from the cottage. It is very cosy and and has got everything you need. I loved the bean bag and super soft couch blanket. Thorpe hill one of the tourist location to do moderate hiking is not too far either.

“everything we needed”
Reviewed September 13, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Robert's retreat is perfectly located for staying in Ashbourne . Within walking distance for shops,bars and restaurants . Good use of space and very modern . Equipped with everything you could need including dvds , books and games .well equipped kitchen . Carole ,owner ,even provided milk and biscuits which was a nice touch . We were able to park outside the accomodation as the accomodation next door was n't being used .We were allowed late checkout until 2pm which allowed us extra time to visit local attractions.

“Seeing the scenery in The Peak District”

Enjoyed staying in this little house. Really comfortable with all that you need. Although there is no wifi, the property does not have a dedicated parking space but we easily found somewhere to park locally.

person found this review helpful

Stayed here for a long weekend at the beginning of March. The booking process was really straightforward and we found the owners to be really helpful - gave us plenty of information on how to find the cottage & where to park etc. Handwritten welcome note & milk and biscuits on arrival were much appreciated too!
Really impressed with the cottage; it was clean, cosy and had everything we needed. Perfect for exploring Ashbourne on foot, good base for the Peak District and Derby is only a short drive if you're after city amenities etc.....
We've stayed in many self catering cottages over the years and this was one of the best. Highly recommended!
