Cottage
This lovely cottage has three bedrooms and sleeps up to six people. It is on a peaceful, private lane in the small farming hamlet of Alton, in the award-winning parish of Ashover and is on the eastern side of the Peak District. There are fantastic views across the valley towards Hardwick Hall (National Trust) and Bolsover Castle (English Heritage). A short drive west across Beeley Moor takes you to Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall. Columbine Cottage perfectly combines the comforts of modern living with the charm and character of a country cottage. It has been furnished and equipped to a high standard whilst retaining many original features. The cottage also has its own private garden with barbecue and furniture for those lazy summer days.

It has been furnished and equipped to a high standard whilst retaining many original features. The cottage also has its own private garden with barbecue and furniture for those lazy summer days. There is an open log fire for cosy winter evenings and we provide you with an initial supply of coal and logs free of charge. Guests return often to Columbine Cottage and they tell us that they love the comfortable beds, the many local walks from the doorstep and the fact that the cottage is so cosy and well-equipped. Alton is a small and welcoming farming village of around thirty stone cottages. A short stroll of less than half a mile takes you to the Fabrick Rock – also known as the Ashover Rock. This is 299 metres above sea level and, on clear days, offers spectacular views of Derbyshire and across five other counties: Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Staffordshire. Look for the stone steps carved into the hillside next to it and follow the public footpath to Ashover. Why not take a picnic and just enjoy the views. Alton is too small for a pub or a shop but several can be found in Ashover a mile away by road but closer if you go on foot cross-country following one of several footpaths down the hill. Ashover is frequently described as one of the prettiest villages in Derbyshire and it hosts a famous traditional country show on the 2nd Wednesday in August every year. Chesterfield is 5 miles from here and is famous for its outdoor market and for the ‘Crooked Spire’ church of St Mary and All Saints, built in the 13th century. More

Beautiful Cottage
We had a fabulous family break at Columbine cottage between Christmas and New Year. The cottage is ideal situated for all visitors, there is something locally for everyone, whether you are a walker wanting to track the numerous trails or just wanting to explore all the local towns,villages and historic buildings. The information provided by the owners is endless. The cottage is perfectly equipped with everything you could want. Would definitely recommend.

Fantastic quality
We have stayed at Columbine Cottage many times now when visiting Family in the UK. It makes an ideal central base for travelling to different parts of the UK, whilst giving us plenty of refreshing walks/sites to visit on our downtime days. The cottage itself is lovely and the small details make all the difference when arriving when tired e.g. having tea/coffee and some little treats. The house is well heated and has a fire if you want to have a cosy evening indoors. There is a lovely little shop in the local village that sells homemade baked products.

Easter break
I went to Columbine Cottage with a group of friends for Eastet break. Susan was fantastic from the very moment I booked. We were sent a handy pack of leaflets and information about the area. When we arrived, Susan was there to welcome us and show us the cottage. The Cottage was equipped with everything we needed for the weekend and more. It was clean comfortable and in a fantastic location.

Wonderful home from home
A very warm friendly welcome as we arrived. Lots of complimentary extras above and beyond what is expected eg biscuits, copious tea, coffee, sugar, toiletries and logs for fire. Everything of excellent quality from plates, cutlery to furnishings. Great added touch of detailed walks from cottage and leaflets of local attractions. Wi-fi added an extra touch. And everyone loved the open fire (logs are a lot cheaper and dry in the new aldi which is close by) 10/10 for our stay we would recommend this cottage to friends and family and the world.

Perfect location in Derbyshire
Perfect location for so many attractions and countryside walks. The cottage was very well equipped with everything right down to lovely shampoo and shower gel. The owner Sue was warm and welcoming and very helpful nothing was a problem.

Wonderful and well equipped cottage perfectly place in the Peaks
We've been going to cottages around the country in October Half Term for the past ten years, and this was the best equipped cottage we've stayed in with excellent information on what to do and where to go, including extensive instructions on local walks. The owners sent in the post details on how to get there and they were on hand should we need help. The nearby walks are excellent, the cottage is spacious yet cosy, and we had a wonderful holiday. Highly recommended.

Perfect Cottage
We've just thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful week in beautiful Columbine Cottage and we can honastly say that this has been the best Cottage we've ever stayed in, and we've stayed in many! Sue's attention to detail is beyond superb. The Cottage was spotlessly clean and incredibly well 'kitted out'. A really warm & cosy home from home....perfect 😊.

Amazing stay in a perfect cottage
We have recently returned from a 3 night stay in columbine cottage and it was fantastic! The cottage was extremely clean, well maintained and well equipped. It has a gorgeous rustic charm with an open fire and has a nice cosy open plan feel making it spacious and welcoming. The owner Sue was friendly and welcoming and all communications have been a pleasure. We will certainly be back!

About the neighborhood
Alton is a small and welcoming farming village of around thirty stone cottages. A short stroll of less than half a mile takes you to the Fabrick Rock – also known as the Ashover Rock. This is 299 metres above sea level and, on clear days, offers spectacular views of Derbyshire and across five other counties: Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Staffordshire. Look for the stone steps carved into the hillside next to it and follow the public footpath to Ashover. Why not take a picnic and just enjoy the views.

Chesterfield is 5 miles from here and is famous for its outdoor market and for the ‘Crooked Spire’ church of St Mary and All Saints, built in the 13th century.
Getting around
There is excellent walking from the doorstep but we recommend a car for visiting the main attractions in the area. There are no bus routes within easy reach. The closest railway stations are in Chesterfield and Matlock, 5 miles away.
Access
Car advised
How to get there
Our two cottages (Wildflower Cottages) are situated in the small village of Alton close to Ashover. They are 5 miles from both Matlock and Chesterfield but there is no public transport in the village so a car is recommended. Travelling time from either junction 28 or 29 of the M1 motorway is around 20 minutes.
