Doveridge is a village environment with lots of open, green spaces. We are fortunate to have a village shop and café, a village pub (serving food) and a village club for drinks (with a pool table and regular live music). We also have playing fields and a playground.
We have a cycle path that links us all the way to the local town of Uttoxeter (approximately a 2 mile walk/cycle). Uttoxeter has a host of shopping facilities including supermarkets and eating/socialising establishments. It also hosts a cinema, bowling alley and ice rink. Uttoxeter is also home to Uttoxeter Racecourse where the famous Midlands National takes place.
Doveridge is located just 20 minutes from Alton Towers, the famous theme park. We are also just a 15-20 minute drive from the start of the exquisite Peak District National Park.
In the other direction from Doveridge, just 3 miles away, is the village of Sudbury that hosts the National Trust property Sudbury Hall and the Childhood Museum.
We are approximately 10 miles from the lovely market town of Ashbourne.

We are in easy reach of Uttoxeter where there is a train-line that takes you to Derby and Stoke and beyond.
There are a number of taxi firms that you can use in the local area.
There are buses that run hourly to Uttoxeter, Burton Upon Trent and Derby.
If you are doing something in the local area and we are available we are happy to help out with occasional lifts/pick ups. Please ask.
We have space at our property for you to park up to 2 vehicles.

Your bedroom is within our own home where we welcome you. We have two boys aged 10 and 14 who are used to having regular guests within our home. They are considerate to our guests needs and enjoy engaging with people - they are also useful fonts of knowledge about the local area!

I booked this for my business partner and his girlfriend - my parents live in the village! It's beautiful and this is what they had to say: We had such a wonderful time at The Gables. The place is gorgeous and the room is spacious with a wonderful view of the fields in front. We were so well looked after and even after we stumbled in late from a great night at the Village Club, they were more than lovely! Great continental breakfast too! It's perfectly positioned to walk around Doveridge and is less than 10mins in the car to Uttoxeter. We would highly recommend this to everyone.

We had an AMAZING stay! The space is even better than the photos. Sarah was easy to communicate with and we felt very comfortable with her and her family. We got in later than planned and she was very accommodating and at no point did we feel like an inconvenience. The bed was very comfortable and cozy. The view was perfect. We would highly recommend staying here as long as you can!

Sarah gave us a wonderful welcome to her beautiful historic home. The bedroom was stunning as was the bathroom, both could have been straight out of a high fashion magazine. We arrived after a 20 min drive from Alton Towers, so a very easy hop and had dinner in Uttoxeter ( just 5 min away with lots of choices ), finally a lovely breakfast was provided. We had a fantastic stay and would definitely recommend

The Gables is a beautiful house in a lovely village. Sarah and her family were really welcoming and the room was large, clean and decorated to match the age and character of the house. I loved the shutters and the view of the Derbyshire hills whilst eating my breakfast. The roll top bath felt really luxurious and I liked the separate entrance especially as I had been out for dinner with friends in Derby after visiting the velodrome so came back late. I plan to come back and stay with my husband soon.

We couldn't fault our stay in this absolutely beautiful house! We stayed with Sarah and family for one night for convenience of visiting Alton towers and had a fantastic 2 days. Sarah couldn't have been more helpful, giving us directions and suggestions on where to go locally which made our stay even better! We couldn't believe how big the room was, and it was so nicely decorated with gorgeous soft furnishings! We will definitely be coming back in the summer for a longer stay to see more of the beautiful area! Thanks so much for a wonderful stay Sarah!

We are an active family and the boys love to play, watch, talk and support football!
We love the great outdoors and are lucky to have the Peak District on our doorstep. I love to walk and cycle.
