About Hillside Croft

Hillside Croft is a beautiful, large self-catering holiday cottage situated in the picturesque Derbyshire Dales close to Ashbourne, Derbyshire. Nestled in secluded, flower-filled gardens, and close to the historic Peak District National Park and the Staffordshire Moorlands, Hillside Croft is the perfect location for entertaining, adventure holidays or just relaxing.

The cottage easily sleeps 10-14 people, with four double bedrooms and one twin bedroom, and four single beds among these rooms, giving total sleeping for up to 14. In addition, there are also two single bed-chairs, providing maximum sleeping for 16.

A distinctive, beautifully renovated, 18th-century original stone cottage, Hillside Croft showcases characterful stone, leaded windows, exposed oak beams, and revealed stonework and timber throughout. Matching furnishings, central heating, and log stoves downstairs make for a notably warm, inviting atmosphere, while bespoke, antique pine furniture, and a mix of oak, tiled and old-stone floors and rugs add extra appeal.

This delightful country cottage is enclosed by quiet, landscaped nature gardens – including a well-fenced nature pond – and verdant pastureland. Close to nature and bursting with birds and wildlife, the wider area and its footpaths are great to explore and wander!

Numerous activities are available in the surrounding area, including water sports, golf, cycling, riding, orienteering, caving and climbing, paintballing, archery and clay pigeon shooting, and quad biking.
