From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


This magnificent Georgian holiday home is the ideal base for a family and friends retreat, with something for everyone available.

Clifton Cottages, comprising spacious Clifton Cottage, a large Georgian house and formerly the owners’ home, together with the smaller former groom’s cottage, Clifton Edge, has been converted with much care to provide comfortable holiday accommodation. Clifton Cottage (ref RH3), suitable for larger groups, boasts a large entrance hall, three reception rooms, and retains much original character with its beams, Aga and homely open fires. Clifton Edge (ref QBP) boasts a hot tub in its own enclosed garden providing the perfect way to relax at the end of the day. The hot tub is only available for use of guests at Clifton Edge (ref QBP) or when both Clifton Edge (ref QBP) and Clifton Cottage (ref RH3) are booked together. Adjacent, yet detached from one another, they are set in a village location with the market town of Ashbourne only 1½ miles away on the edge of the Peak District National Park. There are many shops to browse and good facilities including supermarkets and a number of restaurants. There are leisure centres at both Ashbourne and Uttoxeter for swimming, squash and other sports. A similar distance away, an 18-hole golf course proves popular with visitors (available weekdays only). From the cottages one can undertake country walks, cycle rides through country lanes and there is also a very good pub 100 yards away in the village which does good food and welcomes Clifton Cottages guests. Highlights in the area include Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Peak caves and caverns near Castleton, Alton Towers theme park (within 5 miles), Sudbury Museum of Childhood, Crich Tram Museum, Bakewell, Carsington Water, Matlock Bath including Gulliver’s Kingdom and the Heights of Abraham. Shop 1¼ miles.

    A fabulous house for a large family gathering. There is enough downstairs, upstairs and outside space to ensure no one feels cramped. The house is well equipped and Kay who looks after the rentals ensured we had everything we needed. If you're looking for a modern house with all the bells and whistles then Clifton Cottage may not be for you however if you want a comfortable, spacious place, full of character for a lot of people with a pub a couple of minutes away then this is ideal!

    We went as a large group and the house was big enough for all of us to find some space. The enclosed back garden had beautiful views and was a quiet relaxing space. The only thing I would change is the plumbing as the showers were poor and it took a long time to fill a bath.

    Ideal meeting place for a family celebration of a Golden Wedding with family from Devon, Yorkshire and Hertfordshire. Large kitchen very friendly for casual meals, nice dining room for celebration. Easy access to Dovedale and large garden for children to play in. Weather was perfect to be outside so we didn't test the indoor facilities to their limit.

    Great place for a large family holiday. Just could do with a new bbq and the showers are a bit naff. But it is an old house

    Too many problems. Electric cooker not working properly, a blocked chimney and a leaking roof in a bathroom. The Cottage needs updating particularly the bathrooms.
