Where is it? Ashbourne
For a perfect hideaway in the hilly Peak District National Park, this cute little cottage is ideal. Not only does it fulfil your rustic cottage dreams (think log burner, wooden shutters, exposed beams and a high-pitched roof over the king bed), it also sits within the walled grounds of Alstonefield Manor, meaning you've got full access to the landscaped gardens. Beyond the boundary walls, there's plenty of nature walks to be had, and for when you're done, the fantastic (and award-winning) George Inn is just down the road. Who would ever leave!
