The Pudding Room Countryside Cottage description

Holiday home
The Pudding Room is a contemporary first floor apartment above the owner's shop, in the hamlet of Knockerdown, close to Carsington Water. There is a double bedroom, and a bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. The open plan living area consists of a kitchen, dining area and sitting area with sofabed, and doors to a small balcony overlooking a small seasonal campsite. There is also a small shared decked area, and off road parking. With Carsington Water close by, and the walking, market towns and villages of the Peak District within easy reach, The Pudding Room makes a lovely year-round romantic base.

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 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.

Stayed here for 3 very comfortable nights. Spacious rooms with very tall ceilings. All home comforts with simple clean comfy furnishings. Great host, friendly and willing to accommodate any requests. Ordered some puddings and quiche previous to visit. They were all delicious. Easy to walk to Carsington Water, which we did twice , morning and one evening. Good decor with everything looking in very good condition. Great shower. Easy to drive to Matlock, Belper and Cromford.

We stayed here for week in September and it was lovely. It was just perfect for me and my husband and our 1 year old. Really close to Carsington waters and Bakewell and Ashbourne not far at all. The owner was lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Can highly recommend the puddings too! We will certainly be returning. Thank you for a lovely week.

Very good location!! Carsington Water is only a 5min walk and is perfect for a walk round. Ashbourne was 15mins drive where it has a big Sainsbury's to buy food/supplies. On arrival the owner was very helpful and gave us tips and points around the property and guidance to the local area. Property was very comfortable and clean, presented to a very high standard with all the essentials needed for a few nights away. Very enjoyable!
