Why stay in Ashbourne?
Ashbourne is centrally located for the Peak District, Staffordshire Moorland, Stoke and the Potteries, the National Forest, Uttoxeter (races), Derby and Nottingham. It is a historic and attractive market town, providing all the convenience required of a self catering holiday with easy access to Alton Towers, Chatsworth, , National Trust properties, Matlock, Buxton, Bakewell, heritage sites and the beautiful scenery and walking country of Dovedale and the Derbyshire Dales.
As well as its natural beauty the area is full of tourist attractions, activities to do and places to see, suitable for all tastes and ages. There is plenty to do and see even if the weather is inclement.
Conifer Cottage is a short walk from Ashbourne town centre with its market square; interesting streets and alleys; historic buildings; independent and 'high street' shops; supermarkets and speciality food stores; galleries, pubs, tea rooms, restaurants, river and a lovely park. Why not book your holiday to coincide with one of the many events held in Ashbourne or locally?
Why stay at Conifer Cottage?
The cottage is ideally situated in a quiet road 5-10 minutes from the attractions and facilities of the town centre. It is an excellent base to explore the countryside of the beautiful Derbyshire Dales and Peak District.
Conifer Cottage provides very comfortable two bedroom accommodation on two storeys, sleeping 4 guests. The ground floor has a lounge and a large kitchen diner, also a private courtyard garden at the rear. The first floor has double and twin bedrooms plus bathroom.
The terraced cottage was built at the end of the 19th century and has been completely modernised and now provides comfortable, cosy accommodation. It is extremely well equipped.
We accept short breaks and longer stays starting on any day of the week.
What do our guests say?
Conifer Cottage is an excellent cottage to rent for any kind of group. It is in an excellent location, spotlessly clean, fully equipped with everything you need and at a very affordable price. This property is a great crash pad for exploring the peaks as a base and it is also in a lovely town on the edge of the peak district national park should you wish to not venture far. The town has some lovely original features in terms of old pubs, galleries and furniture shops all in keeping with the period and area. The owner of Conifer Cottage could not be more helpful in communication before, during and after my stay. So the two things you ask yourself when you have stayed somewhere is a) would you recommend this place to others - yes 100% and b) would you book this again - yes 100%. Have no hesitation in booking here trust me.

“Perfect spot for a weekend.”
This is a great property, very easy walk to the centre of town, free parking right outside the house on a quiet street.
Would definitely recommend.

"5* - beautiful cottage."
Everything you could ever need, a real home from home. Great location for loads of days out, only 20 mins from Alton Towers. Will definitely book again next time we visit that part of the country.

“Excellent cottage easy walk to town and shops”
Cottage location excellent. Parking outside cottage on road.. Cottage was clean and all facilities good. Courtyard garden ideal with table and chairs for four. Bedrooms were also clean with plenty of storage and room and the beds were good. Bathroom was excellent with a great shower. We would definitely stay again.
