The most wonderful time

It was so hard to leave the beautiful cottage and location. We all had the most wonderful time celebrating our daughter's 21st with wonderful friends. The cottage was warm and inviting and had everything we needed. The trip to The George was made in the dark up the hill by all 14 of us and the food was delicious. We will be back.....

Already rebooked for next year

September 21st 2018

A superb cottage with everything you need in a beautiful location. We have already rebooked for September 2019.


Everything we needed

July 27th 2018

We had a lovely stay. The house is fabulously well equipped and we had everything we needed. When our Aussie son in law arrived first he was amazed at the place. We particularly enjoyed The George. And the lovely walk back down the lane. Having lived in the area between '85 and 2000 the walk along the Dovedale trail brought back some fabulous memories.

Wonderful house

March 9th 2018

The house is wonderful and has everything you possibly could need. Location couldn't be better; the views are beautiful. We walked from the front door (Tissington, Thorpe Cloud and Dovedale) and the extra boot room to arrive home to is a great idea. Loved the log fire, and the kitchen is spacious and well stocked. Communication with Wendy prior to arrival was excellent; very helpful. Would definitely return.


Idyllic setting

January 12th 2018

This is a lovely property in an idyllic setting. Picture postcard stuff! I've stayed here with a group of friends several times over the last few years and we hope to return for many more visits. The house is spacious, clean, comfortable and as well equipped as you could wish for. The perfect place to gather and relax for as long as possible! Of course there are also beautiful walks from your doorstep - something for everyone in the group!

The area is beautiful

December 29th 2017

We just wanted to say we really enjoyed our stay at your beautiful cottage in Milldale. The area is beautiful and the cottage has everything you could possibly need and made our stay so easy. I am sure we will stay again and I have already recommended you to a friend. December 2016


You really do pay attention to detail!

May 5th 2017

Thank you so much for renting us your lovely house in Milldale again this year. We had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed the surroundings. You really do pay attention to detail and we were very impressed with the standard and attractiveness of the property. Everything is provided and it is a comfortable and beautiful base for spending special time together in a wonderful part of the country.May 2017


What a beautiful setting!

April 21st 2017

What a beautiful setting! Stunning views all around made all the more beautiful by the sunshine we were lucky enough to have with us all weekend. It was with great reluctance that we packed up to leave on Sunday afternoon! Still, we had enjoyed wonderful walks from the house -the beauty of Dovedale exceeded our expectations - and we had enjoyed our family celebrations at the Coach and Horses in Fenny Bentley. April 2017


The views from the cottage are stunning

March 24th 2017

We had a most enjoyable long weekend at Valley View celebrating a big birthday with all the family. The views from the cottage are stunning and the cottage itself very well equipped. We had a perfect weekend and the sun shone too! Thank you. March 2017


The house was fantastic

November 25th 2016

We had a lovely time at Valley View. The house was fantastic, very well equipped and lovely and spacious. The view and local area are stunningly beautiful, the family very much enjoyed going for walks. The board games came in really handy and yours is one of the few places I've see that actually seats as many as it sleeps. I'm sure if the opportunity arises we would love to stay again. November 2016


The dogs were very happy and easily pleased

October 16th 2015

We found this cottage to be extremely well equipped and the location is superb. The rooms were to a standard we were expecting and the kitchen and living room were a great size for all to mingle. The annex for the newest arrival (baby) to the family was ace. The dogs were also very happy and easily pleased, just needed their bed, which next to the fire was perfect.


My mum had the best time celebrating her 70th

September 11th 2015

Thank you we had a wonderful stay at Valley View. My mum had the best time celebrating her 70th there as did we. The cottage is beautiful and so well equipped and the view is just spectacular. You really feel that you are nestled away in a special place.


Ideal for three families

August 21st 2015

The accommodation worked excellently for the three families and we had a very good relaxing holiday. We would recommend The Coach and Horses at Fenny Bentley for a superb meal and excellent service. The access to lots of things to do is very good as well. The house was comfortable and very well equipped. We particularly liked the separate dining room where we cold linger over our meals.


Lots of room and extremely well equipped

June 26th 2015

We had a wonderful weekend at Valley View. We celebrated our Golden Wedding Anniversary with our family. The cottage was perfect for 12 people, lots of room and extremely well equipped. The weather was beautiful, we had walks from the cottage, no need to use the cars. We enjoyed the gardens and were able to relax in the sun (after a long walk). From 7 to 73 years and all in between (and Smudge the dog) had a great time in this beautiful setting.


Best every reunion

April 21st 2015

We had a wonderful time, thanks. Comments from other guests include; "Best ever reunion" and"I cannot think of any way that our stay could be improved upon".


The location was amazing

March 6th 2015

We loved) being able to all sit in the lounge or the dining room together to enjoy each other's company, and also the sunny Saturday morning walk we all went on alongside the river - bliss! (We liked) the generous seating areas, the flexibility of the twin or king size beds in 3 of the rooms, the facilities of the cottage, the location was amazing and the parking more than ample.


We could not have wished for anything more!

February 23rd 2015

We could not have wished for anything more than what you have provided at Valley View. We were celebrating my 50th birthday with friends and relatives from 6 months to 70 years old (including some tricky teenager types) and everyone who paid us a visit throughout the week was amazed at the house, facilities and wonderful location. You appear to have thought of everything and it was so appreciated - the children loved the TV, the teenagers had the X-box set up in the annex, the men played games in the hallway and of course the girls sat drinking wine in the wonderful kitchen. Then when it got dark we ventured outside for star gazing! We will be back at some point, my partner has a 50th on the horizon and we are already planning that. February 2015


We have re-booked already!

December 4th 2014

We loved the setting of the house and the view and also the large lounge and the space that was available. We have already re-booked for 2015! December 2015

Our expectations were more than fulfilled

November 28th 2014

We all enjoyed our stay very much and our expectations were more than fulfilled. The lounge was particularly comfortable for our large group and the entertainment systems excellent (although I think we only made use of the TV but Sky sports was popular and the recording facilities). The kitchen, dining room and bedrooms were all excellent too, as well as the more than adequate crockery, etc. and games. The large hall and stone floors worked well for minimizing dirty feet problems and keeping the dogs under control and it was useful to have the outside tap and hosepipe.


Great sitting room with wood burner

October 17th 2014

The location is great - excellent walks direct from the front door, and (if you have the energy), you can walk to two pubs. The house is very well equipped - two TVs both with Sky Sports and wi fi. The beds are fine and the showers good. A great sitting room with a wonderful wood burner, and a fine dining room with seats for everyone round a huge table. October 2014


Walks by the River Dove

October 13th 2014

(We liked) the walks by the River Dove, the large rooms and well equipped kitchen. October 2014
