Visit Peaks : Pubs, Restaurants, Food, Drink

Another place that we’ve been going to for more than 20 years.  Set in the the charming valley of Dovedale with its’ own grounds and garden and the great news is that it now has new owners and has reopened recently (2014).

We would recommend walking from our Valley View self catering holiday house to The Izaak Walton as the walk takes you along the River Dove nearly all the way.  It will take about two hours each way, but it is reasonably flat and more experienced walkers might like to take the walk back via Thorpe Cloud and Bunster Hill.

You can enjoy stunning views of Thorpe Cloud and Bunster Hill from the garden in the summer and young children will enjoy racing around on the lawned area whilst adults can relax.  Afternoon teas are also offered and can be enjoyed on the lawns in summer months.

There are plenty of cafes, tea rooms, pubs, restaurants and a deli in Ashbourne.  There is also a co-op, Sainsbury, M&S food store, Waitrose as well as a local market.

The Bridge Wine bar is modern contemporary style and serves coffees with home baked cakes and pastries throughout the day.  Also home baked pizza.  Good selection of wine and beer.  A take away service is offered for Pizzas.  One for us to try!

The food here is all prepared by hand using the best natural ingredients and cooked in small batches to retain a homemade character.  A huge selection of cheeses, handmade chocolates (from Belgium), as well as a range of starters, main courses, puddings and muesli made on the premises.  Selection hampers made to order for picnics or gifts.
