    Driving Directions from Ashbourne:

    Take the A515 (Lichfield) road from Ashbourne until you reach the sign for Clifton village which is on the RH side of the road (approx. 1 mile, and your 2nd turning). Turn right here, into the village, passing the church and The Cock public house, and carrying straight on along Sides Lane heading towards Ellastone and Norbury. (Ignore the signs on your LH side towards Snelston as this will take you straight into the village). Keep going along Sides Lane and exactly 2 miles from the church in Clifton you will find us as the first building on your LH side.

We're still basking in the warm,happy memories of our week in Handel's Muse. The cottage is immaculate, well-equipped and filled with character.
