This stunning converted farm building with all the conveniences of modern living, including a spacious open-plan living area set all on one level, making this a property with increased accessibility.

Within walking distance of idyllic Ashford in the Water, this wonderful barn conversion offers stylish accommodation in a countryside setting. Your hounds will go barking mad for the walled garden and neighbouring field where they can chase balls to their heart’s content. With one bedroom this is the perfect property for couples and their canine companions to enjoy a rural retreat within walking distance of a dog-friendly pub.

The light and airy lounge with its large sofas and vaulted ceiling is a restful space to put your feet up and unwind with your dog at your feet. The charming double bedroom enjoys stunning views across the endless countryside. Remember to bring your pet’s favourite bedding so they get a good night’s sleep too. A modern shower room is ideal for freshening up in the morning. Outside, enjoy breakfast alfresco on the pretty patio area or let your canine companion stretch their legs in the tranquil walled garden or cross the stile to the large field where your dog will have a ball.

Ashford in the Water is an idyllic village set on the banks of the River Wye. Stroll into the village for an early evening drink at one of the dog-friendly pubs or pick up some produce in the well-regarded deli to enjoy back at your holiday home. Roam along the riverbank to the famous Sheepwash Bridge, or head to the dales for some more challenging walks. You and your dog will be made to feel welcome in the riverside brewery at Bakewell (2 miles) where you can sample their ales in the tap room and take some of your favourites away with you. Discover the stunning grounds at historic Chatsworth House (6 miles) and find the perfect picnic spot to share a sandwich with your four-legged friend.

A comfortable and cosy cottage in a lovely location and close to lots of walks and sight-seeing. Kitchen well kitted-out and equipment easy to operate. The Bull's Head pub/restaurant in the village does lovely food on an evening.

Had a lovely long weekend at this well equipped cosy cottage, in a beautiful location. Lots of walks right from the door, and lots of places to visit if you venture further afield. We took along our dog, plenty of dog friendly pubs, we had a meal at The Bulls Head in Ashford, very nice, but would recommend booking as it is only small and gets very Read morebusy. We will definitely be back! Hide

Well equipped & cosy cottage with lovely walks from the door. A great base for visiting the sights & scenery of the Peaks & Dales. A visit from the owner to see if everything was ok was thoughtful. Would recommend this cottage, we had a lovely week.

The cottage is perfectly located for walking (and I imagine cycling), being so close to several of the lovely dales in the area. We walked from the door which was great. Cottage is also attractively renovated; the barn roof gives height and a sense of space and light. Just right for a couple - and our dog.

Very comfortable cottage in a good location. Great to be able to walk/cycle from the cottage without using the car. We had limited, and eventually no internet connection which was very frustrating. Spoke to the owner about it who was aware of the problem and therefore we feel this should have been added to the booking details. Apart from that a gooRead mored short break. Hide

The place was very warm and also very isolated and private at the time of our visit.
