The Old Dairy

1 of 8
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 5
Ashford-in-the-Water, Bakewell, Peak District National Park, England
Located on the edge of the picturesque village of Ashford in the Water the cottage is approached via a long sweeping driveway, flanked by a large wild life pond and undulating fields grazed by cattle, the group of cottages at Rowdale Farm nestle in a sheltered spot in the heart of the Peak National Park, surrounded by mature grounds, and enjoys fabulous views down Crackendale.

This comfortable character farm cottage, with a gateway onto the Monsal Trail, provides easy access to the footpaths, bridleways and cycle routes. There is an excellent choice of pubs, village shops, and cafe's all within a short walk.

Please note that guests need to provide their own personal toiletries and towels. Supply for log burning stoves can be purchased in Bakewell. We are sorry but we do not accept pets at this cottage.

Cottage comfortable - plenty of space and well equipped; grounds are also well kept with a picnic bench. Good location - 5-minute drive to Ashford - Chatsworth & Bakewell are within easy reach. Mobile signal in cottage non existent and Wifi very poor.
