The Ashford Arms

The Ashford Arms is a village inn dating from Napoleonic times, set in the pretty and unspoilt village of Ashford in the Water, just 2 miles from Bakewell, Derbyshire, in the centre of the Peak District.
Your hosts at the Ashford Arms are Andy Fraser-Smith and Robert Muxlow, who manage the pub. Robert hails from nearby Matlock and prior to coming to Ashford, Robert ran the Merlins restaurant in his home town.
We have a traditional bar with open fireplace and no distractions - a great meeting place for visitors and locals alike or just a nice place for a quiet drink. We also have a comfortably furnished dining area offering varied menu with a wide range of specials.
The pub is situated in the very centre of this lovely village, backing almost onto the River Wye. Outside the pub we have a large garden area which in summer is a lovely relaxing place in which to sit in the sunshine.
We offer Bed and Breakfast accommodation and have eight bedrooms each with en-suite bath or shower, washbasin and WC,  tea and coffee making facilities, TV and radios.
The many attractions of the Peak District are within easy reach, as is Alton Towers.
The Ashford Arms extends a very warm welcome to all its guests - many of whom return year after year to explore the surrounding countryside.
