Chantry Cottage

Chantry Cottage with its “chocolate box” looks is situated in the delightful Peak District village of Ashford in the Water. The cottage is in a central location overlooking the church and just a short stroll away from the famous Sheep Wash Bridge. The village is positioned on the River Wye, one and a half miles north of Bakewell and just a few minutes drive from Chatsworth House, making Chantry Cottage an ideal holiday location for a short break in the Peaks.

The village has two pubs and a hotel which also caters for non-residents. In addition, the village has a coffee shop and an invaluable local shop that stocks almost everything you may need!

Chantry Cottage can accommodate up to 6 people. We have a double bedroom, a twin bedded room and bunk bedded room. There is a family bathroom with roll top bath, separate shower and toilet. The lounge has a feature fireplace with multi-fuel stove, there is a separate dining room and downstairs toilet. The kitchen is complete with built-in oven, grill, microwave, washing machine and dishwasher. There is also a conservatory overlooking the private garden. This is ideal for BBQ’s or just simply relaxing with a drink after a day walking in the peaks.

The Cottage is available weekly from Friday 3.00pm to Friday morning 10.00am, or for weekends, Friday 3.00pm to Monday morning 10.00am. Other arrangements may be possible with prior agreement.

Ashford in the Water

One of the most picturesque villages in Derbyshire, Ashford in the water sits in the valley of the River Wye just two miles from the market town of Bakewell.

Three bridges cross the beautiful River Wye in the village which is full of character in an idyllic waterside setting. A small walled enclosure near the old Sheepwash Bridge is still occasionally used for its original purpose. Ashford was once the centre for the production of Black Marble, a highly polished limestone produced in local quarries and mines, an example of which can be seen in the main bedroom fireplace.

Chantry Cottage is an ideal spot for exploring the surrounding area. There are many walks from the cottage including a lovely walk to Monsal Head where you can enjoy fabulous views of Derbyshire along with a well earned refreshment from the nearby hostelry.

Bakewell is a 30 minutes walk away along the River Wye, where there are many little lanes, cafes and shops to explore. Bakewell has one of the oldest markets in the area with many places of interest, including the Old House Museum.

Chatsworth House and park is only a few minutes drive away with the magnificent house and gardens to explore. It also has a working farm open to visitors, adventure play area and farm shop.
