“Really cosy cottage in beautiful Peak District location”
Reviewed 3 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We spent Christmas and New Year in Bankside Cottage and it couldn't have been better. The cottage felt really cosy with the real fire and tasteful mix of modern/traditional decor, especially the amazing master bedroom (that king size bed is hard to get out off once you are in it!). It's really well equipped so we didn't want for anything. The owner, Vicki, was brilliant to make arrangements with and even decorated the cottage for us for Christmas, which was so thoughtful. It's ideally located just 2 minutes from the Dovedale river walk and has lots of walking/biking routes all around the immediate area. There are some good local country pubs and Ashbourne is only a 20 minute drive, which has supermarkets as well some lovely local shops to choose from. If you want to get away into the country with lots of outdoors and cosy indoors, you couldn't find anywhere better to stay than Bankside Cottage.

“Perfect birthday weekend getaway”
Reviewed 5 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had a lovely weekend staying at Bankside Cottage. The communication from Vicki was excellent, and the cottage was immaculate on arrival. We particularly loved the open fire which we used every night! There are several walks straight from the front door - the walk along Dovedale to Ilam is stunning. There are 2 pubs nearby (both within a mile). The George in Alstonfield is well worth a visit and does excellent food.

We will definitely be returning.

“Beautiful cottage in ideal location to explore the Peaks”
Reviewed 29 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

My wife and I enjoyed a very relaxing week in this beautiful cottage with out 5 month old son. The cottage is a well equipped and characterful property in a small hamlet with lovely walks straight out of the front door.

Highly recommended for anyone looking to explore the Peak District or just looking to escape for a few days.

Reviewed 19 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Our fourth stay in this wonderful cottage . Communication with owner excellent. Upon arrival wine and biscuits. Scrupulously clean and well laid out. All mod cons inside. Use of owners bikes. Lovely garden and seating area. Peaceful but within driving or walking distances to very pretty towns and villages. Discover a different walk each time we visit. Dovedale walk on doorstep. Another fantastic week, thank you Vicky
