Alstonefield is a small upland village in the White Peak area of the National Park, between the valleys of the Dove and the Manifold rivers. A number of small greens give the village and its pretty stone cottages a quaint and distinctive feel.

At the village centre is the popular pub and restaurant, The George, which serves high quality food and a range of real (website hidden). It is advisable to book ahead if you intend to eat there as it is usually fully booked at weekends.

Well-loved walks such as Dovedale, Monsaldale and Lathkill Dale are all close by. The cottage is located just a few hundred yards from the village centre, on a ridgeway between the two valleys (the Rakes is a name given to old lead mining sites, which were common in the area).
