About the location


Ashbourne 4 miles.

The ultimate in "year-round" appeal, the Peak District offers countryside, picturesque villages and magnificent scenery. It touches upon six counties and encloses 555 square miles of open moorland, flowing rivers, and wooded dales.

Where the River Dove and the River Manifold meet is where the charming village of Thorpe can be found. The village is under the auspicious gaze of Thorpe Cloud, a 1000-foot limestone hill at the entrance to Dovedale. The arrival of the railway heralded the tourist boom and today, Dovedale continues to be a popular spot for many visitors. Thorpe has two country house hotels and a public house. For a wider range of amenities, the busy market town of Ashbourne is only four miles away. The town still has many beautiful Georgian buildings and charming cobbled alleyways, wending through the town and just waiting to be explored. There are many activities in the area and Thorpe makes a fabulous base to discover this lovely region.
