“A piece of paradise”

The cottage is fantastic. Ideally situated just outside the famous Peak District village of Milldale. The cottage is really well equipped, cosy and perfect for a short break. There is only one bathroom and bedrooms 2 and 3 are small but these are easily managed.

The cottage is characterful and surrounded by magnificent, peaceful and staggeringly beautiful countryside.

The welcome pack of wine, tea, coffee, butter, marmalade and cheese was the icing on the cake.

Would definitely look to visit again.

“The most idyllic, cosiest getaway from everything cottage”

Everything about the cottage was just wonderful. The location is beautiful. Peace and tranquility without feeling isolated. There is everything in the cottage you could need-and more. It's a rarity to find self catering accommodation where you have the little extras included (dishwasher tabs, washing liquid, tea towels, even coal and kindling) We wanted for nothing. Except a few more days on our stay!!!
We felt cuddled by this beautiful place and didn't want to leave.

Had a great time at Bankside Cottage with our friends. The setting is in a lovely area and the cottage although a bit on the small side (second double bedroom) was very cosy and well equipped. The price was really reasonable and we had a lovely relaxing long weekend

“Ideal country getaway”
Reviewed 18 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We spent three nights in this excellent cottage but could have spent more. It is easy to get to and is great value for money. The facilities and furnishings in the cottage make for an extremely comfortable stay and the surrounding area is beautiful. The cottage also has plenty of information on things to do. There are a couple of pubs not too far away and various walks around Dovedale but the open log fire in the cottage provides an inviting alternative for the lazy man's retreat. A great stay made better by the cleanliness of the cottage and the warmth of the welcoming from Vicki.
