What People are Saying

We even added on an extra night as we loved it there so much!

“When I was browsing through the internet back in October time for a spring holiday for my family I came across Riverside Cottage. I knew then it would be absolutely perfect for us all and was very excited about our visit. Well it certainly didn’t disappoint. Milldale is so beautiful and tranquil. Riverside Cottage is a real little gem and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We even added on an extra night as we loved it there so much. The welcome hamper was very much enjoyed and the cottage was so comfortable and luxurious.

We enjoyed some lovely walks from the cottage, especially to Dovedale. We will definitely return in the future. Thank you so much Andrew and Sarah!”

We had a truly wonderful stay with friends at this beautiful cottage!

“We had a truly wonderful stay with friends at this beautiful cottage in an idyllic location to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries missed during lockdown. The cottage was beautifully and thoughtfully presented with a quality finish throughout and spotlessly clean everywhere. Everything you need is there and so many beautiful little detailed touches that really make the difference. There was lots of information in the information pack, especially helpful walking guides. Andrew and Sarah came and introduced themselves and were very helpful – we felt we could call on them at any time if needed. The welcome basket was excellent (wonderful marmalade!) and much appreciated. The kitchen is very well stocked with crockery and cookware and everything of excellent quality. We went on some lovely walks locally and toured the rest of the Peak District but the River Dove and Dovedale is as picturesque as it gets. Our magical moment was strolling down to the Viators Bridge after dinner and sharing the peace, quiet and beauty of the place with the ducks – wonderful. Thank you Andrew and Sarah for a great stay and sometime we hope to return, all being well.

“We could not think how it could be more perfect!”

“Our recent stay at Riverside Cottage was truly wonderful. This beautifully designed cottage has comfortable beds with lovely bedding, white fluffy towels, a choice of seating both in the house and the garden. There is a separate laundry room and a fully fitted sun house. The kitchen has every appliance that you could want. We thank Sarah and Andrew for their welcome package and kind enquiries regarding our comfort. It is so well situated for enjoying energetic walks in the Dales but also for the less able there is a flat walk along the river which is accessible and easy. We could not think how it could be more perfect and we hope to return for another holiday.”

“Riverside Cottage is probably the best cottage we have ever stayed in!”

“Riverside Cottage is probably the best cottage we have ever stayed in. Every inch and corner has been thought about. As well as being beautifully presented, we all slept very well in incredibly comfortable beds (so often a bit a of a let down on other holidays!) and enjoyed the luxurious touches throughout the cottage. Our dog was thoroughly spoiled with all the doggy beds/blankets and extras, and the outside space, with its many levels, was a relaxing place to enjoy the sounds of the river whilst reading a book. Good WiFi and Netflix were also very much welcomed. There were many walks from the village and an extensive list of local pubs in the welcome pack. We found a few we really liked! The cottage was also situated close to some wonderful places to visit and was the perfect base in this respect too. We were very grateful for the delicious welcome pack of goodies after our long journey and Andrew and Sarah were wonderful hosts. Thank you so much for making our holiday so perfect!”
