Owner's perspective - "Our ownership of this apartment ranks as the happiest of times for us following our retirement. We had access on foot to Thorpe, Thorpe Cloud, Dovedale, walks by the river Dove and its famous stepping stones, Milldale and much of Derbyshire's beautiful countryside. The Tissington trail and High Peak trail is also nearby and easily accessible by foot or bike giving 26 miles of scenery for walkers and bikers alike. We spent many happy days over Spring and Summer on the trail. We kept our bikes in the large cupboard inside the flat. Apart from these happy memories the flat was a focal point for meeting our friends and family for walks and many memorable dinner parties.
The town of Ashbourne is easily accessible by turning left down the alleyway and footpath off Windmill lane so you don’t have to walk down the main road. At the end of the path you enter the town square with all amenities and some excellent pubs. There is a supermarket as well as a lot of independent shops. It is very quiet with no traffic noise as Tissington Court is set well apart from the busy main road."
Locality - Ashbourne is a historic market town known as “The Gateway to the Peak District” due to its convenient location to the magnificent Peak District National Park. It is within easy access of the A50 (9 miles) which connects to the M1 & M6 motorway links. Famous for its annual Royal Shrovetide Football (dates back to 1667) which is played on Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday. There is a great array of amenities and facilities within a thriving town centre, which offers a plethora of individual, mainly independent shops and cafes. Ashbourne has a popular golf course on the outskirts of the town, and has the highly sought after secondary school of Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School (QEGs) which serves Ashbourne and the surrounding Derbyshire Dales villages.
