Find cottages in Brassington

Located within the rocky uplands of the southern White Peak, the village of Brassington offers a great location for exploring the Peak District countryside. The quaint village, consisting of old limestone houses and narrow streets, is an attraction in its own right.

Brassington’s Norman church and Tudor House, the oldest dated house in the village, has served as an inn, a workhouse, and now a private home. The village developed on the lead mining industry, and the hillocks surrounding Brassington are full of abandoned mines and the remains of miners’ buildings.

There’s easy access to The Peak District, an area of picturesque uplands which covers many adjoining counties. It actually has no officially defined boundaries, although the smaller Peak District National Park does, which is very close by.

Despite the name, the region is hilly, but not mountainous. The Derbyshire Dales, or White Peak area of the park, is largely a limestone plateau that contains rolling hills, dales, and green fields, and is famous for its rare wild flowers, including Jacob’s Ladder and orchids.

Walkers will not be disappointed with the High Peak Trail, Limestone Way and Midshires foot paths all passing close by. Other popular activities include climbing, cycling, horse riding, potholing and of course visiting historic country houses and quaint villages.

Among the Peaks’ attractions is the Georgian spa town of Buxton, the pretty riverside town of Bakewell, and the visitor attractions of Matlock Bath and Castleton, which has a Norman castle and show caves. The stately homes at Lyme Park, Chatsworth and Haddon Hall all offer great days out.

For self-catering accommodation see our holiday cottages in Brassington. Book one today, and take the opportunity to explore the beautiful Derbyshire Dales for yourself.

    "Fine cottages and facilities – in a county of unspoilt landscapes, deep dales and winding rivers . . ."

    This fine courtyard of old stone barns was part of a working farm, but has now been sensitively converted to offer sixteen beautifully furnished and well-equipped cottages. Boasting a wealth of original features, they enjoy shared use of a rich choice of leisure facilities, including a superb indoor heated swimming pool in an adjacent, purpose-designed building. With a shallow area for children, the pool has its own changing rooms and a sauna, and there is a separate games room within the pool building where wi-fi is available. Brackendale Spa is an independent facility offering luxurious treatments, which guests can book by contacting the spa directly. There are two conference/dining rooms to accommodate large groups, and a separate laundry room with automatic washing machine and tumble dryer. Close to the cottages are patio and barbecue areas. All set in 3 acres of shared grounds, offering a children’s play area and plenty of space in which to relax.

    This is an ideal setting for a Peak District holiday. Knockerdown Farm is conveniently situated on the road between Ashbourne and Matlock, within walking distance of beautiful Carsington Water, a superb windsurfing and sailing centre, which has an area devoted to wildlife and nature conservancy. Throughout the year they have special fun days for children of all ages. At the water sports centre guests can hire (with tuition) kayaks, windsurfers, Canadian canoes and bicycles. Professional fly fishing is available to enable guests to try their hand at fishing this popular, well-stocked reservoir. Fine walking country is virtually on the doorstep, and the renowned Tissington and Middleton cycle trails are both close by (with bikes available to hire). The principal centres of the Derbyshire Dales are nearby - Wirksworth, the market town of Ashbourne, attractive Bakewell (of pudding fame) and Matlock: all are fascinating ancient towns. Matlock Bath (6 miles) is popular as an inland resort, standing on the River Derwent amid lovely scenery, and offering boating, angling, bowls, tennis and cricket. The young (and the young at heart) will enjoy a day out at the National Tramway Museum - where visitors may enjoy the fun experience of trams from around the world! Magnificent Chatsworth House (16 miles) boasts a famous collection of art treasures as well as beautiful gardens. Haddon Hall (13 miles) is England’s most complete and authentic medieval house dating back to the 14th century. It is set in lovely countryside overlooking the River Wye, near Bakewell, which houses one of the National Park’s information centres. One of Britain’s premier theme parks, Alton Towers is within easy reach. It is set amongst appealing countryside close to the picturesque village of Alton and offers a fun-packed day out for all the family. There are several country inns within walking distance. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

    Brimming with character and charm, the Water Mill has been lovingly restored and combines luxury fittings with many of the original historic features. Corn has been milled here since the 1500s on the Brookside site, and the present mill buildings date from the 1700s. The original fittings and equipment remain untouched when milling ceased in the early 20th century.
    Ancient stonework, oak beams and centuries old millstones and equipment have been thoughtfully incorporated to create an unforgettable interior for the Grade II listed building, one of Derbyshire’s oldest surviving water mill. You will see inside the property original sections of the wooden mill machinery which have been restored to give a fabulous feeling of the building’s history. Outside, the original wood and iron waterwheels have been restored and are turned from time to time, fed from the waters of the restored mill pond.
    Just half a mile from Bradbourne and 5 miles from Ashbourne, the property is surrounded by some of Derbyshire’s prettiest scenery. The Tissington Trail offers good walking and cycling opportunities, and the village of Tissington itself is a real step back in time, complete with Tisssington Hall. You will be totally spoilt for walks from the doorstep of this stunning property with Dovedale just a short drive away, not to mention the wealth of market towns, pretty villages, historic houses such as Haddon Hall and Chatsworth House and Gardens, all within easy reach.
    In such a stunning location, this unique, converted water mill is a truly wonderful base for discovering the delights that the Peak District has to offer. So after a busy day exploring, what more could you ask for than to kick off your shoes and relax in your very own bubbling hot tub! Shop 5 miles, pub serving food 2 miles.
