“Lovely cottage in a great location, it was everything we were looking for.”

person found this review helpful

We arrived at the cottage early evening, my daughter and her partner had arrived the previous day and we were welcomed with a lovely meal and a real fire. Fortunately we had glorious weather during our stay so could explore the surrounding area each day. There were many good walks from the cottage itself..we eat in the George in Alstonefield one evening. The food was good if a little overpriced. The cottage was very well equipped Nd extremely comfortable, it had everything we could want. Vicki was really helpful and communication was excellent. We would definitely recommend the cottage and area and certainly intend visiting again next year.

“Perfect Cottage in Tranquil Surroundings”
Reviewed 21 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Our third stay in this wonderful cottage. Spacious, clean and well equipped. The cottage is absolutely perfect. Beautiful surroundings, River Dove on doorstep, perfect for exploring the many walks in this stunning location. Cottage ideal for couples or families. Another fantastic stay here in this picturesque area. Thank you to the owner again for the bottle of wine and biscuits along with a lovely note, on arrival. Deposit always returned promptly too. An absolute joy to stay here again

“Absolutely wonderful”
Reviewed 19 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Second stay, this time more of us. Still as good as the first time. This cottage is really home from home, has everything and more that you need. Walking is easy as there are walks right from the front door.
Would recommend this cottage without hesitation.

“Lovely cottage”
Reviewed 1 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This was a perfect short break, weather a bit cool so we were a little anxious about needing to switch on the heating as the joining instructions were a bit keen to advise that there could be an additional charge for over use of the heating (and WiFi). Even so, we just enjoyed the pleasant cottage, lovely walks through to. Dovedale over the Stepping Stones. Would certainly go again.

“Great cottage, great family break”
Reviewed 13 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Just returned from a fantastic few days at Bankside. It is a lovely, well equipped cottage in a great location....walks and cycling right on the doorstep. The cottage thoughtfully provides bikes, BBQ, outdoor seating and inside it's like a home from home. After a day walking from the door to the stepping stones at Dove Stones (7mile round trip..mostly flat apart from the 109 steps up and down hill at lovers leap) they then spent the rest of the early evening playing on the bikes and down by the river. Not a gadget in sight!! And to make the parental dream even more idyllic the spring sunshine was good enough to sit outside with a glass of wine before retreating indoors to a roaring fire. The following day we worked up a healthy appetite walking up to Alstonefield to The George for lunch. All in all a lovely break. The nearby villages have some lovely artisan shops but in reality if you arrived well stocked (or got an on line order delivered) you could happily park the car in the drive and leave it there for a few days.
