The cottage was absolutely beautiful, a real home from home. We had a brilliant time and would definitely recommend it to family and friends.

Alton is a lovely little village and Ash House was a great choice to stay. The house was lovely and relaxing which made our stay all the more enjoyable. Perfect for a family getaway or just a weekend away with friends!

Our stay at Ash House was perfect! The house is so beautifully decorated and well equipped. The fire makes the living room feel very cosy! The cottage is set in idyllic surroundings - we had a lovely walk around Llam which is a short drive away. We had such a great long weekend and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to anyone!

This is a beautiful cottage which has been furnished to a very high standard, much more than an average holiday cottage with everything you could need.

We enjoyed a wonderful stay in Ash House. The house is well equipped, spacious, clean and very cosy. Our three little boys loved the attic bedroom and they didn't want to leave!

We stayed here on the 5th Feb for 2 nights for my boyfriends birthday with some of his family. The cottage is absolutely beautiful and you immediately feel at home. The place was absolutely spotless and the housekeeper had even left us a little treat of red wine and a packet of lovely biscuits. The cottage in in the middle of Alton, there are lovely pubs close by serving great food. The closest pub The Bulls Head has recently closed down. Everyone in the village were very friendly and happy to point us in the right direction as we didn't really know the area. We visited Ashbourne on Saturday and also The Heights of Abraham which were close by and I would recommend. The cottage had plently of plates, glasses and cutlery if needed. There were 6 of us staying at the cottage, there are 6 double beds, and 2 singles. One thing to mention is one of the bedrooms (the loft) you have to walk through the second bedroom to get to it so may accidently wake people up during the night of you need to go the bathroom. This wasn't really a problem for us. I would definitely recommend this cottage to others and thank you so much to the housekeeper and owner for making our weekend :)

This was our first holiday home experience, we received such a warming welcome from the moment of booking to arriving at Ash House. The owner was contactable & replied promptly advising us with everything we needed to know about the House,location,area etc. A lovely welcome pack was a great surprise on arrival. The location of Ash House is superb for visiting Alton Towers just being a 5min car journey away. So many places to visit nearby over the Peak District.

"We have had a wonderful stay in Ash House. So cozy, very well equipped and our three boys (aged 7, 5, 2) loved the attic bedroom and huge bath tub! We look forward to returning in the near future. Thank you also for the lovely welcome."
