The Old Shippon at Alstonefield ASHBOURNE Derbyshire
Cosy cottage for two ideal for walking cycling sightseeing Close to good pubs Sorry no pets
Situated on the edge of the beautiful village of Alstonefield within the Peak District National Park, The Old Shippon lies behind the owners’ property, with extensive views in all directions and footpaths that begin as you step out of the front gate. In its earlier life, the cottage has been both an antique shop and a barn (a ‘shippon’ is an old English word for a cattle barn). Dating back to the mid-19c, it’s now a cosy retreat, offering:
- Double bedroom
- Well-equipped kitchen with dining area
- Comfortable lounge with wood-burner
- Bathroom/WC with electric shower
- TV, DVD and wifi
- Bed linen, towels and toiletries
- A range of indoor games and books
- Outside eating area and garden
- Secure cycle storage
On arrival, guests are treated to a ‘welcome pack’ such as fresh scones, home-made jam and milk in the fridge. A basket of logs is supplied. For walkers, Milldale and the much-loved stepping stones at Dovedale are nearby. There are several pubs within easy reach, all offering good food and real ales.
The Old Shippon is available for up to two people for weekend and mid-week breaks and for full weeks. Other options may be available on request, subject to a minimum two-night stay. Sample prices: per week £325 - £475; weekend/midweek £150 - £210 (3 nights) £200 - £280 (4 nights).
