What People are Saying
“We even added on an extra night as we loved it there so much!”
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.”

“Can’t praise this wonderful cottage enough!”
“Can’t praise this wonderful cottage enough. The attention to detail is second to none with every comfort you could wish for. The decor is beautiful and relaxing and the situation by the river is perfect.
A very warm welcome awaits anyone who wishes to stay in this beautiful part of the country. Every precaution is taken to make the place spotless in these difficult times. We will be back.“
