Kniveton is a pretty and ancient village which lies on the road between Ashbourne and Wirksworth. Three miles away is Ashbourne, lying at the southern end of the Peak District, which is a perfect example of an English market town – market place with stalls, eccentric street plan, narrow cobbled alleys, coaching inns and almshouses. In the 18th Century, the town was a fashionable social centre and many fine Georgian buildings remain from this period. Today the town still has much to offer in terms of shops, restaurants and inns and is regarded as something of a haven for antique hunters.
Hillocks Cottage is a spacious 300 year old stone built cottage with exposed beams, situated in the heart of the village and a couple of minutes walk from the local pub – the Red Lion – which has a reputation for good food.
Hillocks Cottage has recently undergone a sympathetic renovation, which has enabled it to retain much of its original charm and character and includes:
- Cosy sitting room with log burning stove, Colour TV with Freeview, DVD & Stereo CD/Radio
- 3 bedrooms - 2 double bedrooms and a single bedroom with a loft bed (upper part of full size bunk bed), to sleep 5
- An additional single bed can be provided in the double bedroom to accommodate a 6th guest
- Large family bathroom upstairs with electric shower over bath
- Fully fitted Kitchen / Diner including a dishwasher, microwave oven, fridge / freezer and washer / dryer
- Downstairs cloakroom with additional WC & Basin

Steeped in history and situated at the southern end of the Peak District, the lovely village of Kniveton sits in a deep hollow on the slope of Madge Hill, offering home to a scattering of traditional stone cottages, a village pub and a delightful old church built in the 13th century. Surrounded by lovely rolling countryside and situated close to the excellent watersport facilities at Carsington Water, this great location provides the ideal base from which to explore the surrounding area.
Nearby Ashbourne is the perfect example of an English market town, boasting an eccentric street plan, narrow, cobbled alleys, old market stalls, many fine coaching inns and a good selection of restaurants, whilst being regarded as something of a haven for antique hunters. For those who prefer outdoor pursuits, the Dove and Manifold Valleys are close by offering good walking and cycling, whilst Alton Towers is just a 30 minute drive away!
