From the moment we walked into the Ashton our stay was perfect. It was only for one night unfortunately but we will definitely be back! James is a wonderful host, from the wine/coffee and home-made Bakewell tart on arrival through to the delicious breakfast the next morning. An incredible choice of mouth-watering food. Throughout the decor is so tasteful with...

Me and my other half stayed here for one night. We were warmly greeted by James, who welcomed us with wine and homemade cake. Our room was lovely, warm, cosy, very clean and there was lots of lovely little touches and the shower was amazing.. the best shower I think I've ever been in, the bed was also really big...

A last minute booking and what a fantastic find. Lovely staff, beautiful building/rooms and fantastic breakfast, with a great choice, perfectly cooked and presented. With 5 rooms in total, a small but lovely 'boutique' guest house. Already looking forward to our return!

Another wonderful stay from the welcoming mulled wine and crumpets through the superbly appointed bedroom to the BEST BREAKFAST EVER ! James is so professional and attentive. THE BEST REASON TO GO SOUTH FROM SCOTLAND in the car.

Very comfy bed & excellent breakfast in the morning. Missed James when we checked out but we found out our dog would be welcome to stay. So we will be back in the New...

we had a rotten trip up the M^ in the dark and wet, but James swept all that away with his carrot and pineapple cake and a glass of wine. the rooms here are amazing, cosy, comfy, well equipped and we slept like logs. breakfast was amazing, way too much choice!!!! :-) more wine after a day of intensive pottering...

From the welcome by James and the offer of a drink and,maybe, some cake, the scene is set for another comfortable stay. I rarely return to a hotel or B and B but here is one of those exceptional places which set the standards by which others are judged.

I could not praise the Ashton too highly. James is the consummate host, there when you need him, friendly, informative and helpful. We arrived on a wet Tuesday afternoon, to be met with a welcome glass of red and a large slice of apple and almond (?) cake. We went to our room, which was spacious, clean and impeccably decorated...

Fabulous boutique hotel - a real gem of a find! James couldnt have been more welcoming if he'd tried. On arrival we had tea and cake and a cuddle with Elvis the cat. Very relaxing. The rooms are beautifully decorated (and so is the entire house) with lots of room and an enormous bed. The shower was a waterfall shower...
