Matlock Bath

Nestled amongst the imposing cliffs of the Derwent Valley and known for generations as "little Switzerland", Matlock Bath is a village which was visited in the 19th century because of the local waters which were renowned for their "curative and uplifting virtues".

The dramatic scenery of the area gave a romantic background to the Victorians' pursuance of health and vigour. The scenery hasn't changed over the years but now Matlock Bath has more to offer than just its "magical waters". 

There are many attractions within easy walking distance: the cable cars to the Heights of Abraham, Gulliver's Kingdom, the Temple Mining Museum and the Aquarium and petrifying well are some examples.

Ashdale is ideally situated in the centre of the village, with level walking to the railway station and pubs, restaurants and cafes close by.

Matlock Bath is on the edge of the Peak District National Park, offering scope for the walker, cyclist or tourer. Within 10 miles of Ashdale stand Chatsworth House with its fine grounds and Haddon Hall, the location for many medieval film settings. Within 15 miles are Hardwick, Kedleston and Sudbury Halls. Peak Rail, with regular steam trains is based 1 mile away. Ecclesbourne Valley Railway is at Wirksworth. Just over the hill from Ashdale is the National Tramway Museum at Crich.The National Stone Centre is 2.5 miles away and Carsington Water about 5 miles.
