5 Star holiday cottage with its own private indoor pool. Situated in Thorpe, a delightful village at the southern end of the White Peak area of the Peak National Park, Thorpe Cloud View cottage is a charming holiday location within the four-acre grounds of, but set apart from, Thorpe House, a late Georgian limestone grade two listed building of considerable character. The cottage, allocated the top rating of five stars, has uninterrupted views of Thorpe Cloud, at the entrance to Dovedale, the limestone gorge which separates Derbyshire and Staffordshire. The surrounding areas provide excellent walking. The picturesque Derbyshire market town of Ashbourne is just some 3 miles away; the spa town of Buxton, and the historic houses of Chatsworth, Haddon Hall, Hardwick Hall and Kedleston are all within easy access. Alton Towers, the UK’s largest leisure park is only a twenty-minute drive away.

Fantastic cottage everything you could want and more
We came to run, cycle, walk & swim, so this cottage was perfect for all those activities, with fantastic trails right from the doorstep, then being able to soak your aching bones in the awesome jacuzzi. If you prefer to walk to the pub and have a burger a pint walk back sit by the roaring log burner while watching movies on a super comfy sofa with a glass of wine, then this cottage is perfect as well.
Cosy and memorable
We got engaged in this cosy, comfortable and luxurious cottage so couldn’t recommend it enough!
How exciting to get engaged on your Christmas Holiday. David certainly planned everything very carefully. Wishing you both a very happy time together. Thanks for the review and look forward to seeing you and your relatives in the future. Thanks Ray
Very helpful and easy to get in touch with
Amazing property with great view.
We all enjoyed our stay and loved available facilities.
We are so pleased you had a great holiday and had Christmas Day as part of your holiday. We hope you will have the chance to enjoy another holiday in the cottage in the future.Thanks for your review. Ray
It was great just what we needed
Fantastic place Ray&Julie brilliant what a great couple couldn’t have asked for more thanks again for a great weekend stu jo & eben
Just as described but so much more than expected. It was the little things that stood out wood for the fire, egg cups, polish, dish cloths and lots and lots of refuge bags. So many times we have made visits to home from home property's and yet spend a small fortune on just everyday things. Every little thing is thought of and even threw in amazing walks, views and a fantastic little pub that is within walking distance... Thank you to our hosts your welcome gifts were the icing on the cake!!
Luxury and homely
Lovely welcome and tour from Ray on arrival. The house is beautifully furnished and very cosy. Can't fault the property, it is everything we'd hoped for.
Swimming pool and Jacuzzi were a real treat.
Don't think I'd want to share if it were ours!
