Welcome to Flower Gardens! This idyllic little chocolate box cottage lies in the beautiful, peaceful village of Clifton, a mere 15 - 20 minute drive from Alton Towers and a leisurely 15 minute walk to the beautiful market town of Ashbourne, gateway to the Peak Dristrict. Nestling on a quiet road, surrounded by doorstep walks and overlooking the church, this little home from home offers everything you could desire for your well deserved break.

The space
Recently renovated, but still retaining many of the 'old cottage' features, Flower Garden is the perfect home from home. In the spacious, heavily beamed living room , you will find a cosy log burning stove and two large comfortable settees to snuggle up on after a long day exploring the Peak District. The dining kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need for cooking, and upstairs are 2 spacious bedrooms with the master bedroom, comprising a king-sized bed, offering en-suite facilities. There is an additional bathroom, with bath and shower, downstairs. Outside is a small lawned garden overlooking the church and a patio set for dining al fresco on summer evenings.
Your dogs are very welcome to accompany you on your visit, but please be aware that we prefer no more than 2 dogs per stay. If this is a problem, please don't hesitate to speak to us prior to your stay. There is a fee of £10 per pet for stays up to a week and £10 per week for longer stays. There is a supply of towels, blankets and other necessities to help you to tidy up after your pet, inside and out. Please be aware that the garden is not fenced so dogs will need supervision when outside.

Where you’ll be

Clifton, England, United Kingdom

In the quiet, leafy little village of Clifton, you will find plenty on offer. Walks in every direction, a children’s play park and activity area, a delightful pub, a stunning church and, for the keen cricket spectators, a scenic cricket pitch where the very successful Clifton cricket team play regularly. The beautiful Peak District market town of Ashbourne, lies a 5 minute drive away and there you will discover many beautiful olde worlde antique and gift shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants, shops and supermarkets. For the more energetic, there is a large leisure centre with gym and pool, a tennis club and golf course (both welcoming visitors),cycling routes and cycle hire and of course walks in abundance! Commonly Known as The Gateway to The Peak District, Ashbourne is famous not only for its access to stunning walks and landscapes (and its delicious gingerbread), but also for its traditional game of shrovetide football! Ask any of the locals if they are an 'upard' or a 'downard'and there will be no hesitation in their reply! In fact one of the town 'goals' lies in the village of Clifton itself! (Pease don't ask which goal - up or down - I've never quite worked it out!

We live in a charming 18th century cottage in the peaceful village of Doveridge, Nr Ashbourne (conveniently situated right in the middle of England!). We are fortunate enough to own The Reading Room, a beautiful period annexe which is set in our pretty cottage garden and Flower Garden, a beautiful little cottage in Clifton, Ashbourne, built around the early Victorian era. Having both recently retired from the law and education, and with our three grown up children now flown the nest, We are finding ourselves with more time to pursue new ventures. With the beautiful Reading Room conveniently situated within our delightful cottage garden, and our lovely rental cottage based in the Peak District , hosting seemed the obvious choice for our next venture. Having travelled fairly extensively ourselves, we understand the importance of finding great accommodation and therefore delight in providing a happy, comfortable and memorable stay for our guests. As guests we are peaceful, clean and tidy and enjoy all things outdoors - running, walking, tennis, exploring the local area, eating out ... and relaxing! As hosts, we very much look forward to welcoming you to our peaceful and charming little corner of Derbyshire and wish you a wonderful stay with us.
