If you’ve never been to Ashbourne, its certainly worth a visit. It is abundant with old world charm, traditional book, coffee and craft shops, and plays host to a traditional market every Thursday and Saturday. The cobbled market place and alleys, along with stylish boutiques and antique shops are a delight to explore.
There are lots of lovely places to eat in the town ranging from delightful restaurants, to cosy pubs. Traditional fish and chips can be enjoyed at the Marketplace fish and chip shop, a real favourite with the locals. Ashbourne and the surrounding country-side is great for walking and is commonly referred to as the gateway to Dovedale. Its one of the most popular locations for those seeking accommodation in the Peak District area.
