The Nook is a 250 year old stone built character cottage with exposed beams, log fire situated in the heart of the village and a couple of minutes walk from the local pub – the Red Lion – which has a reputation for good food. Kniveton is a pretty and ancient village which lies on the road between Ashbourne and Wirksworth. Three miles away is Ashbourne, lying at the southern end of the Peak District, which is a perfect example of an English market town – market place with stalls, eccentric street plan, narrow cobbled alleys, coaching inns and almshouses. In the 18th Century, the town was a fashionable social centre and many fine Georgian buildings remain from this period. Today the town still has much to offer in terms of shops, restaurants and inns and is regarded as something of a haven ...The Nook is a 250 year old stone built character cottage with exposed beams, log fire situated in the heart of the village and a couple of minutes walk from the local pub – the Red Lion – which has a reputation for good food.

Excellent location for a home base to explore the Peak District. We were out all day, so being right by a road wasn't really a problem. The house is well equipped and having a washing machine and a dryer on hand was brilliant. The Red...More

About the neighbourhood
Steeped in history and situated at the southern end of the Peak District, the lovely village of Kniveton sits in a deep hollow on the slope of Madge Hill, offering home to a scattering of traditional stone cottages, a village pub and a delightful old church built in the 13th century. Surrounded by lovely rolling Peak District countryside and situated close to the excellent watersport facilities at Carsington Water, this great location provides the ideal base from which to explore the surrounding area. Nearby Ashbourne is the perfect example of an English market town, boasting an eccentric street plan, narrow, cobbled alleys, old market stalls, many fine coaching inns and a good selection of restaurants,
Getting around
We have had a number of guests who have stayed at the cottage without a car and got around on public transport happily. However to get to the more remote parts of the Peak District an car - or bicycle for keen cyclists - is recommended
