Situated in a beautiful and idyllic part of Wolfscote Dale, Dove Cottage is a Victorian 3 bedroomed self-catering fishing lodge, recently refurbished to a high standard. The cottage enjoys stunning views along the River Dove, and also has the benefit of a large well kept garden.
This exclusive 2 ¾ mile stretch of fishing on the renowned River Dove provides a beautiful and challenging setting for catching some of the finest wild and stocked brown trout in the country.
Lying in the heart of the White Peak Area of the Peak National Park, 6 miles north of the market town of Ashbourne, Dove Cottage affords easy access to a wide variety of activities. These may be enjoyed by the country lover, the walker, the avid explorer, the heritage buff and the bargain hunter.
