Ashford in the Water is a picturesque riverside village that nestles mainly on the east bank of the meandering River Wye as it winds its way slowly south-eastward towards the town of Bakewell, a couple of miles downstream. The famous and much photographed medieval Sheepwash Bridge is the site of the original `ford by the ash trees’ from which the village takes it’s name and one of several ancient bridges which span the river here. The village has 2 pubs, The Ashford Arms Hotel, a plush 18th century coaching inn and the Bull’s Head, known as the Turk’s Head in the 19th century and run by the same family since the 1950’s. The corner shop at the end of Church Street has been in existence for over 100 years and is an outlet for many local needs.
Joiners Cottage is a cosy stone built cottage situated a hundred yards away from the River Wye in this delightful village. Located in a beautiful part of the Peak District National Park, this is an ideal location for exploring on foot with lovely walks from the doorstep, or riding a bike through the many quiet lanes and footpaths of the area. For touring and sightseeing, the nearby attractions of Bakewell or Buxton with their regular markets, the tourist attractions at Matlock, and the unmissable Chatsworth House are all within easy reach, to name a few.

- Sitting room with cosy log burning stove, Freesat HD TV, blu-ray DVD, Radio / CD & iPlayer

The picturesque village of Ashford-in-the-Water nestles on the banks of the River Wye, just two miles from Bakewell, at the heart of the Peak District National Park. This historic village, once famous for its marble, consists of 18th century, stone cottages, two lovely pubs, an exquisite restaurant and a superb village store, renowned for its quality produce.
The medieval Sheepwash Bridge, overhung by whispering willow trees, was once a major crossing point over the Wye for packhorses delivering malt from Derby and is flanked by a former sheep washing pen. The nearby, renowned market town of Bakewell offers a variety of shops, restaurants and pubs, together with frequent local farmers' markets. Visit the many stately homes, including Chatsworth House and HaddonHall, or explore the rugged Dark Peak and softer limestone White Peak, all within easy reach. With Britain's premier theme park, Alton Towers and the impressive caverns at Castleton close by, you'll be spoilt for choice at this fantastic location.
