Location description from owner

The England region

Come and take in the breathtaking landscape of the Peak District. You can take a spectacular walk over some of the 500 sq. miles of countryside and National Park, enjoy the rich cultural history of the area in the wonderful Chatsworth House (where Pride and Prejudice was filmed) and the wealth of other stately homes. There are also bustling, bright towns, cosy country pubs and great shopping all around. It is a trip that will be truly magical and compelling with so much to do in this glorious area of the English countryside. Milldale, is the first welcoming view and entrance to Dovedale looking down the wooded ravine, cross over Viators Bridge to walk down through Dovedale to the stepping stones or north along the quieter stretches of Dovedale. All along the route watch out for dippers, kingfisher or even herons who will be looking for food in the clear waters of the River Dove. Dovedale is one of the finest examples of a limestone and ash woodland habitat to be found in Europe. What makes the Dovedale landscape truly special is the incredible relationship which sees grassland changing into scrub/woodland and vise versa, creating a rare semi-natural and ancient ash woodland containing remnant true ancient woodland around the crags. The steppng stones which join the two banks of the River Dove at the Southern end of Dovedale, were originally built by the Victorians due to the ever increasing popularity of the area, to find an easy way to cross the river. They have become one of the most iconic features of Dovedale in this area of outstanding natural beauty. Fun for adults and children alike, hop from one stone to the next to continue exploring the rest of Dovedale. A little further up from stepping stones are a flight of steps, that were built during the Second World War by Italian prisoners of war, they lead to Lovers Leap. Climbing this hill is the only way to continue your journey north through Dovedale. When the river is low the stepping stones can easily be crossed, however after heavy rainfall the stepping stones become difficult to cross. Steep slopes and undulating terrain make this area difficult for visitors with disabilities, however we are constantly upgrading accessibility to ensure that more visitors can enjoy the natural beauty of Dovedale. Accessible parking can be found at Stepping-Stones end of Dovedale..

Alstonefield

The Ashbourne / Alstonefield area
Alstonefield has won the best village award many times in the past. It is a stunning village with a close knit community who are always friendly and willing to help. Alstonefield is actually built on a limestone plateau, which is 900 feet above sea level, making for lovely views. There is a popular old coaching inn just in front of the old wool market, and shops that used to thrive on the silk industry, making silk buttons! It is a wonderful village, with craft shops and galleries to potter about in as well as being the link to the wonderful countryside all around.

A quaint English Hamlet today, Milldale, used to be a bustling and busy hamlet with a Camomile mill that closed in the late 1870's. The remaining mill buildings have now been converted into our information barn. The ancient packhorse bridge is the most famous of all in the Peak District. It is known as the Viator's Bridge, and was made famous in the English classic 'The Compleat Angler' by Izaak Walton. .

This is a beautiful place to visit with some of the most beautiful British landscape all around you with fine views, walks, cycling and other leisure pursuits to enjoy. The well renowned beauty spots of the “Stepping Stones” and Thorpe Cloud are approached over the viator bridge and then a lovely walk down Dovedale. Nearer to home a bracing walk up the hill to Alstonefield will find the highly rated George Public House and farm shop.
Alton Towers is less than 45 minutes drive.
Milldale is about 7 miles from Ashbourne, 17 miles to Matlock and 20 miles to Derby where there are fast (about 11⁄2 hours) trains to St Pancras International.

“Fabulous cottage and location”

Reviewed 16 Apr 2016

Our family of 4 enjoyed 5 nights at Bankside Cottage, Mill Dale, near Alstonfield. The cottage is so charming and well equipped that it's easy to settle in very quickly. From the front door, you can walk in all directions for more challenging or gentle excursions. We loved the walk over the top and down Hall Dale in to Dovedale, returning to the cottage for bakewell tart from the The Bakewell Tart shop, Matlock St in Bakewell!

Thank you for the lovely review and so pleased you has a lovely stay and walking, at Bankside Cottage - that's my favourite walk!

“Wow Exactly what we all wanted and more”

Reviewed 17 Feb 2016

We were very pleased with everything, the place was a good standard. I am looking forward to booking again. Very pleased with everything, thank you very much.

Thank you for your review and look forward to hearing from you again.

“Lovely relaxing stay, was like home from home!”

Reviewed 24 Jan 2016

Excellent cottage in a really beautiful area surrounded by lovely walks. The cottage was spotless and had everything you needed, really enjoyed sitting in front of the fire at night, nice and cosy. The welcoming goodies were a nice touch too! Loved the big hard bed in the master bedroom so comfy, never seen a bed so big! Would be nice to see the cottage in the summer, will have to return sometime! Really useful leaflets on walks and ideas of where to visit in the cottage were a great help, thank you.

Thank you for the lovely review and come again soon.

“Lovely Cottage in Beautiful Location”

Reviewed 24 Nov 2015

A pretty and well maintained cottage. We made full use of the excellent fire and the kitchen facilities were very good too. Also, you enter the cottage via the utility room which made it easy with dirty walking boots and a dog. The downstairs rooms are quite small so it might feel tight at full capacity, but this wasn't an issue for us. The master bedroom is large, but note that the bunk room is only suitable for children. The location was perfect for us as the cottage is a very short walk to the river Dove and many public footpaths. We felt very welcome as there was a loaf of bread and a bottle of wine waiting for us on arrival. We would definitely go back.

Thank you for your great review. Look forward to your returning soon.

“Wonderful stay in a beautiful part of the Peak District”

Reviewed 6 Jun 2015

We had a fantastic bank holiday break in this cottage wihich we found to be very well appointed and located. The owners made sure we had everything that we could want to find, and we had a great relaxing break there.

So pleased you had a great time at our very special cottage. Look forward to a return visit soon.

“Cosy cottage in a Beautiful location”

Reviewed 23 Feb 2015

We had a lovely long weekend at Bankside Cottage. There were interesting walks straight from the cottage, and the scenery was stunning. The cottage was comfortable and the cosy fire was much appreciated during our Feb stay.

Thank you for your lovely review. Please come again soon.

“Perfect New Years break”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2015

We had a lovely stay at Bankside cottage to welcome in the New year. The cottage was located in a lovely snowy hamlet with scenic walks close by and even a local coffee shop. The cottage itself was well equipped with everything we needed, including a welcome hamper to help us settle in. We would happily return to bankside, and found it great value for money. Thanks again

Thanks for great review and please come again soon.

“Birthday break”

Reviewed 25 Nov 2014

After searching website upon website for a short break, we finally found Bankside and what a find. This cottage is perfectly set a stones throw from the river dove. With excellent walks on the doorstep you don't have to think about using the car to get around. The cottage itself is very clean and spacious, the photos don't give you the full reality of how much space there is. From the initial booking the communication with the owner was brilliant, full of useful information around the stay and recommendations where to eat and drink. As it was November we drove the mile to the George for an evening meal, this pub is highly recommended and I see now why we were told to book ahead. In the summer this would be a pleasant stroll to and from Bankside. I would definitely recommend Bankside to anybody looking to get away for a peaceful, relaxing break.

Thank you for your lovely review, it is a very special place. Please come again soon.
