What People are Saying
“A wonderful week in Duck Cottage!”
“A wonderful week in Duck Cottage thanks to Sarah and Andrew who ensured that everything was just perfect for our stay. The Cottage is immaculate and fitted out to a very high standard throughout. To say it was spotless is an understatement, everything was so clean it really did feel like somewhere to relax in, very much a home away from home which is quite something during these difficult Covid times. The location and the cottage are so pretty and we certainly did not want to leave. We intend to return to Duck Cottage for another stay in this magical place.
Thank you Sarah and Andrew, your personal attention and attention to detail showed that its important to you that your guests enjoy their stay which we certainly did.“

“Duck Cottage is a real gem!”
“Spent a week ensconced in this magically pretty corner of the Peak District. With the soft bubbling of the river outside and the glorious hills on view all around us we felt were a world away. Duck Cottage is a real gem – so beautifully furnished and equipped it was a warm and cosy retreat from the showers. When we were lucky enough to see the sun, we took full advantage of the gorgeous outside decking and front garden patio. Can only imagine how lovely it is to spend a warm summer’s evening outside listening to the gentle sounds of the night time countryside.”
“What a wonderful stay!”
“What a wonderful stay! Milldale itself is a special place, but to enjoy it while staying in beautiful Duck Cottage is as good as it gets. The cottage is exquisitely designed and immaculately presented, equipped with everything you could need. Andrew and Sarah are great hosts: attentive and responsive, never intrusive; truly first class. We will most definitely be back!“
“ I can’t recommend it enough!”
“We had a really special weekend in Riverside Cottage – every detail has been thought of and it is so well kitted out with everything you could need, plus robes and a lovely welcome basket of local produce! The front garden is beautiful, the road is quiet, and you can hear the river from your bedroom if you sleep with the windows open. We walked to Dovedale along the river and took an alternative (extremely hilly) route on the way back – so much fun and walks for all fitness levels from the doorstep. It felt like a home from home and I can’t recommend it enough!“
