The Heart of England/Peak District
Valley View is situated in the Peak District National Park one of the most stunning areas of natural beauty in England and the UK. With protected landscapes and wildlife it is a wonderful setting for outdoor activities such as walking and cycling. It is also a great place to experience great local cooking and ingredients - some fantastic pubs with fine local produce and a great pint of English beer are a highlight of any holiday here.
There are some lovely market towns such as Ashbourne and Bakewell with local shops a plenty, picturesque villages with local festivals, historic houses as well as plenty of indoor and outdoor activities for families and groups alike (including horse riding, caving, abseiling, fishing, museums and visitor centres).
Chatsworth House is within an easy drive as well as Haddon Hall (both stately homes have been used as the backdrop for films and TV programmes such as Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre.
Valley View is in the heart of great walking and cycling country. Walks along the river Dove are popular for all ages and Dovedale is one of the UK's most loved natural beauty spots. The famous stepping stones are easily accessible from Valley View and in the summer months a picnic is a must.
The Tissington Trail (10 minutes maximum by car or you can cycle there) is a must for cyclists and walkers. Cycle along this once used railway and explore some fabulous Peak District countryside. It's flatter sections are also wheelchair and pushchair friendly and it is a lovely family day out.
Alstonfield is only a short 10/15 minute walk from Valley View and a visit to The George pub should be on everyone's list. The food is superb, with a great choice of beers and wines and there is al fresco dining in the warmer months. Round the back of the pub is a farm shop selling locally produced food as well as wines, beers and more. Why not take some back to Valley View for a group or family meal?
The market town of Ashbourne is only 10 minutes drive from Valley View. As well as the supermarkets (Marks & Spencer, Waitrose, Sainsbury and Co-op), there are two fantastic delis, numerous restaurants, cafes, bistros, pubs and fish and chips. For shoppers there are some lovely local craft shops along cobbled streets and hidden alleys, a wide range of antique shops, gift shops, banks and outdoor shops. On Thursday and Saturday there is a local market and in August the famous Agricultural Show. There is also a leisure centre with swimming pool.

"Large , comfortable, well equiped and well located property which didn't disappoint"
Stayed at Riverside House in Litton mill for a long weekend with family and friends. Great location, a short walk at the side of the house up to the Monsall trail and great river circular walk up to Cressbook mill and back on Monsal trail. This was a home from home with a very well equipped kitchen with plenty of cutlery and crockery and pots and pans - I often find with rental properties that this is not the case. Kids (12,10 and 9) enjoyed the games room as did the adults.
Would love to have stayed longer - Australia couple with us thought it was fab location, having never been to the Peaks before.

"Great sized property for larger groups in a wonderful location"
Lovely peaceful location in the idyllic setting of the Dovedale valley in the Peak District. Magnificent views from the house on all sides. A number of great walks from outside your door - no need to travel out with the car. 50m from the front door is arguably the nicest walk along the Dovedale valley - and it's an easy one for children and those less able (nice and flat for a large part). We even managed with a Phil & Teds pushchair. The house itself was ideal for a larger group - spacious downstairs area with a impressively large sitting room and big wood burning stove. The kitchen was extremely well equipped with ample amounts of cutlery, crockery and pans and a good sized gas cooker/oven. SkySports for the blokes who need their fix. The small annexe was good if you have friends who need their own space or need a downstairs bedroom - it was quite a bijou little addition with it's own kitchen and sofa on the 1st floor. No issues with parking our 4 cars in the driveway. We were a group of 8 adults, 2 toddlers and 2 babies. We never felt pushed for space or bathrooms! If you want a tasty pub lunch that is walkable you must check out The George at Alstonefield.
Would we go again? Definitely. But next time we would go for longer.

"Brilliant cottage with everything you need"
13 of us stayed at this cottage during March. There was everything we could have possibly needed. Even though 13 of us stayed there it never felt crowded as the cottage is a fair size.
Lovely large lounge, dining table that seats at least 13 and a couple of pubs within walking distance!
Overall fantastic weekend had by all, 100% would recommend

"Spacious accommodation in a fantastic location"
Tha accommodation was spacious for an extended family reunion. The furnishings were tasteful and all the plentiful appliances were of a high quality - every need was catered for.
The location was fantastic with only a 50 m stroll to the dale itself.
We recommend this venue unreservedly and hope to return in the future

"idyllic Derbyshire venue."
A lovely location located just outside of Ashbourne, surrounded by hills. Wonderful views, set in a small hamlet with Dovedale just a short distance away. The house has all that you need and more, plenty of everything and ideal size for family and friends to have a special break. Because the house is situated in a small community it probably isn't ideal for, shall we say, noisy parties of people. The locals like to keep their peace intact, which is their right after all. We had a lovely time there and the owner was very helpful in recommending local places to eat.

"a perfect house for our family holiday!!"
Valley View had everything we needed to make our large family feel comfortable. The separate annex worked well, as did the two staircases and layout of the bedrooms and bathrooms. The dining room was designed to have large family meals and the kitchen was well equipped and laid out and easy to use. The living room was large enough for 3 games of may jong, cribbage and card games to be played in the evenings.
The setting was perfect with the garden and the views and the area offered all we needed for walks, fishing and visits to stately homes. As other members of the family were staying nearby, it was wonderful to have enough space to feed 24 of us together a couple of times and to give such a nice base to enhance our pleasure of being together.
it was a real bonus to find such a nice place who was also willing to have our dog.
i can wholeheartedly recommend this house.

"Awesome facilities and great location - couldn't have had a better weekend"
Wow - what a fantastic place for a family get away! Awesome location and perfect house! Simply perfect :) would recommend this holiday home over and over. We will definitely return some time soon! We were a group of 12 family members ranging in ages from 22 to 80 - everyone had a brilliant time! Mill dale is great location to explore this beautiful part of Derbyshire!
Owner was excellent... Very helpful! Kept all promises and information received was first rate!

"sTYLISH COMFORT, STUNNING VIEWS"
Well-equipped, sparkling clean, spacious and comfortable.Ideally placed for activities of all kinds.We had a great time and look forward to returning, as the house caters for all ages and interests.Lots of fridge space is helpful in hot weather.We appreciated the welcoming bottle and the provision of a cloth for our party in the dining room.
TIP -online groceries delivered from Waitrose in Buxton saves a lot of hassle.
