WE ARE OPEN. At present only 1 household or 'bubble' can stay at the cottage.
NHS and Care workers please contact the owners directly - email: email@example.com or mobile: 07779 722668.
In order to comply with Government regulations, Visit England and AA standards, and with the safety of our guests in mind, our cleaners will sanitise the cottage very thoroughly with the recommended products after each group of guests depart and the cottage will be left empty for a minimum of 24 hours before the next guests arrive. We have also provided hand and surface wipes, again to the correct standards, for our guests.
Conifer Cottage is open all year including Christmas and New Year. We offer short breaks and bookings can start on any day of the week.
A Victorian terraced two storey, two bedroom cottage on a quiet street 5 minutes walk from the centre of Ashbourne in Derbyshire. Ashbourne is a market town with a number of cafés, restaurants, pubs, independent shops and historic buildings. All the attractions of the Peak District are close by including Carsington Water, Dovedale, Alton Towers, Chatsworth, Buxton, Bakewell and the Tissington Trail. There are also many outdoor activities such as walking, cycling, climbing, golf, boating and fishing.
Conifer Cottage is a comfortable, modernised property comprising a lounge and kitchen/diner on the ground floor and 2 bedrooms (double and twin) and a bathroom, which was refurbished in February 2018, on the first floor. There is a private courtyard garden at the rear accessed from the kitchen.

What do our guests say ...
"Just perfect" 🙂
We have just a wonderful stay at this beautiful cottage. The situation is perfect. The facilities in the house were just superb. The beds were comfortable. The shower and bath just lovely and every modern convenience throughout. And so beautifully clean.
We could not recommend Conifer Cottage more highly.
Helen, Cambridge, October 2020
"A perfect cottage in every way."
We spent 3 nights in this lovely cottage. It is really clean, comfortable and well equipped. The kitchen is surprisingly spacious. Just myself and my husband stayed in the double room but there is another twin room so it is perfect for a family of 4.
The location is great as the cottage is less than a 5 minute walk from Ashbourne town centre. There is a Sainsburys a few minutes walk away too.
We would love to go back at some point in the future.
Charmaine, St Albans, August 2020
This is a lovely cottage. Parking right outside. My 2 boys (3 & 6) can be hard to please but both of them enjoyed the bath/shower, the bedroom and games in the kitchen. It is a pretty good area to use as a base to travel for day trips. Plenty of info in folders in the cottage. Great communication from owner. Nothing left unclear.
Ben, Liverpool, February 2020
Cosy, spotless clean, very well equipped.
George, Luton, February 2020

George, Luton, October 2019
“Delighted. Everything you could want there” - Very pleased. Very cosy and clean. everything you needed there.
Mike & Mary, Cardiff, September 2019
“Conifer Cottage is perfect” - If you are looking for a small, cosy, comfy, warm and extremely well equipped Holiday Cottage, which is spotlessly clean then look no further. On arrival we were delighted to find a fridge freezer which we hadn't seen mentioned before our arrival. Very well situated to walk around delightful Ashbourne where we lost count of the number of cafes, restaurants, and pubs! A choice of Sainsbury or Waitrose within five minutes walk, and Aldia five minute drive away. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage to our family and friends.
Tony, Doris and Nigel, Norwich, March 2019
“Excellent” - Conifer Cottage is an excellent cottage to rent for any kind of group. It is in an excellent location, spotlessly clean, fully equipped with everything you need and at a very affordable price. This property is a great crash pad for exploring the peaks as a base and it is also in a lovely town on the edge of the peak district national park should you wish to not venture far. The town has some lovely original features in terms of old pubs, galleries and furniture shops all in keeping with the period and area. The owner of Conifer Cottage could not be more helpful in communication before, during and after my stay. So the two things you ask yourself when you have stayed somewhere is a) would you recommend this place to others - yes 100% and b) would you book this again - yes 100%. Have no hesitation in booking here trust me.
Suzanne, Notts, December 2018
“Wonderful Find” - Another great stay at this lovely little cottage. Fab location with on street parking and well located for amenities. The Cottage is cosy and welcoming. A great find!
Marianne, Lanarkshire, October 2018
“Perfect spot for a weekend” - This is a great property, very easy walk to the centre of town, free parking right outside the house on a quiet street. Would definitely recommend.
Alison, New Zealand, September 2018
"5* - beautiful cottage" - everything you could ever need, a real home from home. Great location for loads of days out, only 20 mins from Alton Towers. Will definitely book again next time we visit that part of the country.
Sarah, Fareham, July 2018
“Excellent cottage easy walk to town and shops” - Cottage location excellent. Parking outside cottage on road.. Cottage was clean and all facilities good. Courtyard garden ideal with table and chairs for four. Bedrooms were also clean with plenty of storage and room and the beds were good. Bathroom was excellent with a great shower. We would definitely stay again.
