Marsh Cottage Family Cottage description

Holiday home
Marsh Cottage is a detached, traditional cottage situated in Stanton, near to the town of Ashbourne and the Peak District National Park. Benefitting from three cosy bedrooms, two doubles and one single, this cottage can sleep up to five people. The rest of the cottage is made up of a kitchen with dining area, a sitting room with an open fire, and a snug with an open fire. To the outside of this cottage there is off road parking for up to three cars, and a lawned garden with patio and furniture. Marsh Cottage is in a wonderful location, perfect for Alton Towers and the Peak District, and would suit any family or group of friends.

Situated in the south of the Peak District, Ashbourne is a wonderful example of an English market town. With a traditional market square, eclectic street plan, narrow cobbled alleys, coaching inns and almshouses, the heyday of this settlement came in the 18th Century when the town was a fashionable social centre. Many fine Georgian buildings remain from this era, adding an air of elegance to the town's heart. With numerous restaurants and inns, Ashbourne is also regarded as something of a haven for antique hunters. For those who prefer outdoor pursuits, the Dove and Manifold Valleys are close by, offering wonderful walking opportunities. Alton Towers Theme Park is just 20 minutes drive away and makes a fun day out for all the family.

The ultimate in "year-round" appeal, the Peak District offers countryside, picturesque villages and magnificent scenery. It touches upon six counties and encloses 555 square miles of open moorland, flowing rivers, and wooded dales.

Excellent, very spacious and warm cottage in lovely countryside, well placed for much of the southern part of the Peak District.

Think this has to be one of the best holiday cottages we have ever stayed in. It was immaculate and with many thoughtful touches. As we live in the Middle East, a traditional Christmas is something we yearn for and Marsh Cottage was the perfect venue - we really appreciated the kind touches of the owner. Can't fault it in anyway and hope to return.

We loved the location of the property, isolated yet near civilisation for shopping etc. We loved the views from the windows, the house had 'personality.' We found the heating to be super efficient too and were cosy all the time. The utility room was a bonus with the extra toilet downstairs. There are plenty of interesting places to visit in the immediate vicinity.

Marsh Cottage was in a great location, nice and private to enjoy surrounding countryside but near to local town and activities, and good location for Alton towers.

The cottage was perfect, we couldn't have asked for more.

The flowers on the kitchen table were a very welcoming touch as was the milk in the fridge and the packets of biscuits. We had a long journey and although we'd brought some groceries with us we didn't have any milk so it saved us having to go out again. Marsh Cottage was welcoming and very clean and tidy - a home from home which was lovely.

Marsh cottage was so welcoming and homely, with everything you need and then some! There were so many lovely little touches which just made our stay so perfect, that we did not want to go home! The location was perfect, really quiet and private. We are all looking forward to another holiday there again sometime in the future.
Mr Peters

Love the cottage as it was quiet, and away from it all, but still close enough to everything we wanted to see.
Miss Cogman

Property was excellent throughout, very good location, amenities very close all you need can be found in Ashbourne. Fantastic holiday for all ages, will be returning soon, and definitely will be telling friends and family real gem!

This is a gorgeous, cosy cottage in the middle of beautiful countryside. It has all the facilities you could possibly need and the owners are dedicated to ensuring the stay goes smoothly. The location is rural but with good access to lovely towns and Alton Towers. The teenagers missed the WiFi but they thoroughly enjoyed themselves anyway!

We were very impressed with the cottage, the kitchen was well equipped and the lounge was warm and comfortable. The cottage itself was isolated which was great for us but with no local shops, you would need a car. We stayed there with friends and there was plenty of parking for two cars and more and plenty of room for four adults in the cottage. I have stayed in many holiday cottages over the years but this one has to be one of the best ever. If there was a tiny fault it was picking up a phone signal but bearing in mind the location, this was to be expected. Couldn't fault it in any other way.
January 2014
A charming cottage well located to visit the southern parts of the Peak District. Well maintained with everything you can think of provided. Not too isolated, but away from the crowds! Will certainly be back.

I travelled to Marsh Cottage in August with my husband and son. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend this cottage. It was so peaceful and had everything we needed. The cottage was spotless and the fresh flowers was a lovely touch. We were left tea/coffee milk and biscuits. We picked this cottage as it was close to Alton Towers and we are so glad we did.

Chose this cottage for its close proximity to alton Towers and so glad we did!only took about 15 mins to get there in the car. Marsh cottage is comfortable, spacious and well equipped. The location is peaceful and relaxing, great after a noisey day at a theme park or a day exploring the local area.
