“beautiful old cottage”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The cottage has been decorated to a high standard with the old and new blend together beautifully, everything you need is there, even dressing gowns in the bathroom. Situated 2 mins walk from the centre of town, parking 2 mins away. Would definitely use this cottage again. Owners were very welcoming and helpful.

“Exceptional Cottage”
Reviewed May 20, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Second Visit to Pegges Alms-house. a great place to stay with everything you need for a relaxing break in Derbyshire. Spotlessly clean and well furnished. Lots to do only a short drive from Ashbourne and good walks along the Tissington trail.

“A breathtaking little cottage, wonderfully run, in a wonderful surrounding, a wonderful place to experience.”
Reviewed May 2, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This cottage took our breath away from the moment we stepped in the courtyard. We were well greeted with wine and chocolates and a smile, the cottage was well equipped, everything was very easy, from finding your way around the cottage to finding your way about the town. Such a relaxing break for those looking for just that with a cherry on top!
The cottage was absolutely spotless, the decor was absolutely beautiful, cosy, so comfortable, I absolutely adored the little cottage with its little quirks and character.
Ian and Maria made the process very easy with great communication, wonderful manner and they couldn't make it any better.
I will be recommending it to anyone wanting a beautiful stay away, romantic, relaxing, luxurious, and we would definitely love to go again, and the price of staying here I thought was fantastically reasonable.
I couldn't praise it enough :)

“Lovely cosy cottage that's full of character”
Reviewed March 26, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We loved Pegges and the reality lived up to the photos. It was a lovely warm and cosy cottage full of character. It was also spotlessly clean. Maria is a lovely lady and there were some really nice touches including a box of gorgeous local gingerbread biscuits (that tasted homemade) and a bottle of wine plus, we were also provided with a bathrobe each. The cottage is conveniently situated for the shops in the centre of Ashbourne....about a 5 minute walk. And for those who love shopping there is an excellent selection of individual dress shops, gift shops and tea shops. There is also a Sainsbury's and a Waitrose within easy walking distance (5 minutes to Sainsbury's / 5 to 10 minutes to Waitrose). All in all we really enjoyed our stay.
