Area Overview

Ashford in the Water is rightly regarded as one of the prettiest villages in the Peak District. Situated on the northern bank of the River Wye, the settlement is best approached on foot over a low, triple-arched packhorse bridge which is said to be the most photographed bridge in England. With its lovely limestone cottages and beautifully tended gardens, it's now hard to imagine that the village was once the centre of production for Ashford Black Marble!


Private Accommodation

There are 3 good-sized bedrooms, a lounge, kitchen and the usual bathroom facilities. The accommodation is in good condition.

Bulls Head

Pub location on map


A beautiful 17th century coaching inn which is situated in the picture postcard village of Ashford in the Water, in the heart of the Peak District. Behind the well-maintained exterior lies plenty of cosy, country character with dark wooden beams, open bare brick fireplaces and soft comfy banquettes. The bar is full of brass paraphernalia, prints and glowing wall lamps. Outside there is a sheltered garden where you will be able to enjoy the sunshine in the summer months.

Trading Accommodation

Ashford in the Water is one of the Peak District's prettiest villages. The Bulls Head, which dates to the 17th Century, has a charm and character that is pure old England. Its oak beams and the historic village photos adorning the walls create a nostalgic, cosy environment in which to relax and enjoy. There is a small separate public bar and a comfortable lounge which homes an interesting collection of bank notes on the walls.
