Clifton Edge a former groom’s cottage is set within the market town of Ashbourne, ideal for exploring the Peak District.

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 11/4 miles.

    A quirky little place in a lovely spot. We had lovely weather but if you were there in the winter you will probably need a heater for living room as the one radiator and log burner are at the same side of the large living room. Overall we had a lovely time. Great hot tub and good local pub. Being very picky it could do with some ice trays and perhaps a hairdryer would be useful.

    Very helpful caretaker and great hottub but gardens weren't sufficiently enclosed in view of roads and steep drop and so we couldn't let dogs out without putting on heir halters and leads. Place itself comfy but didn't get much sun in apt or garden.

    Clifton Edge is a great place from which to explore the southern end of the Peak District. It is very close to a pub, where the staff are friendly, helpful and serve good pub food. The Edge itself is a bit basic and has some flaws (no washing machine, too little crockery to justify the inclusion of the dishwasher, a pretty poor shower, and poor quality wi-fi) and is best when rented as a part of a bigger group which gives you access to Clifton Cottage which has all of these facilities. That said, the manager of the properties is very friendly, and we have enjoyed our stay so much that we have been back many times.
