About the neighbourhood
The Ashbourne / Alstonefield area
Alstonefield has won the best village award many times in the past. It is a stunning village with a close knit community who are always friendly and willing to help.

There is a popular old coaching inn just in front of the old wool market, and shops that used to thrive on the silk industry, making silk buttons! It is a wonderful village, with craft shops and galleries to potter about in as well as being the link to the wonderful countryside all around.
