Well presented and clean

It was brilliant, thank you. Really well presented and well equipped and clean and well looked after. The children loved being down by the river, even in the rain!

Perfect for a get together

January 24th 2020

We stayed with around a dozen friends for a long weekend in January 2020, having previously discovered Valley View for a family occasion in 2019. The house is perfect for a get together and is in a beautiful location. It is extremely well-equipped - better than most cottages we have stayed in - and exceptionally clean. We will most likely be staying again in the future, as it has everything needed for a weekend away with family or friends and is a great location.


The property was perfect

December 20th 2019

We had a lovely time at Valley View over Christmas. The property was perfect and the location stunning...we couldn't have asked for more.


We had a great time

November 22nd 2019

We had a great time and the house was perfect. Thanks for making it so easy for us. Everyone remarked how well equipped the kitchen was and that everyone got hot showers.


It suited our needs perfectly

October 25th 2019

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage, it suited our needs perfectly and we loved the views. My granddaughter very much enjoyed Polly’s shop especially the ice cream! We found the cottage very well equipped and very comfortable.


Fantastic family weekend at Valley View

September 6th 2019

We had an absolutely fantastic family weekend at Valley View. The whole weekend was made so pleasant and easy by the fantastic accommodation. The amount of kitchen equipment with simply extraordinary and made catering so much easier. All the rooms were superbly appointed and the annexe with the kitchen suited us too. The views from the house were superb and the easy access to the Dovedale walk gave us all a wonderful time.


The location is splendid

August 2nd 2019

The whole experience in booking this property has been excellent, as has been the property itself. The location is splendid; perfectly positioned to explore the Peak District. Milldale is a gem.


It's easy to tell that you stay here and know what makes it comfortable

July 12th 2019

We had a fantastic week - incredibly lucky with the weather, but we also loved the house and its location. Over the years we have rented many holiday cottages and none has been so well appointed as yours. It was easy to tell that you stay there from time to time and know what makes a comfortable and attractive home. We booked this holiday as a family celebration for my father's 80th birthday and it was everything we were hoping for. We will remember our time in Milldale fondly for many years.


Very professional and friendly service from Wendy

May 3rd 2019

My family and I stayed at Valley View for the May Day Bank Holiday for four days. There were 12 of us aged from 68 years to 10 weeks, so a very mixed bunch. What a beautiful place to stay, the cottage is really spacious and immaculate, with plenty of room for us all to dine together and sit together as a family on the large sofas, light the wood burner and watch the children play Monopoly. The kitchen is so well equipped we wanted for nothing at all, which was very welcome when catering for 12. The Annex games room proved to be a big hit with the children and they were happy to play on the football table. The cottage is so beautiful and situated in such a unique position, where we found it hard to choose which trail to go on. There is not one bad comment I could make about this beautiful cottage and the very professional and friendly service received from Wendy.


Your cottage was very impressive

April 19th 2019

Your cottage was very impressive and well furnished in all rooms - lounge, dining, bedrooms and kitchen. It was good to find a kitchen with adequate pots and pans, fridges, cutlery etc to cater for 11. The cottage was immaculate on arrival. We loved the location in Dovedale, really beautiful river and surrounding hills. We would recommend Valley View to friends and wider family.


Fantastic is the word we would use for the house

February 15th 2019

We had a truly great time and loved the house and facilities. It was everything we had hoped and the view, the area and the weather were brilliant. We loved the main living area and all the downstairs areas in fact. Fantastic is the word we would use for the house.


The most wonderful time

November 9th 2018

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.....

Mark Evans

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.

Karen Nicholson

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!

Unwin 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.
