I visited with my partner and young baby and had a wonderful stay! The cottage is in a beautiful location with a great view across the dale. The cottage is well maintained and had everything you could need.
Youlgreave is a lovely village with good amenities, but be warned - parking can be difficult in the main street of the village but there is a car park a little way up the road!
We really enjoyed staying at Riverdale View. A characterful and comfortable cottage overlooking Bradford Dale. It was well equipped and lovely to be able to light the wood burning stove for the chilly evening in June! It was a bit dark and the walk down or at least up with luggage was a bit of a challenge. But it was great to be well away from the road. There were lots of lovely places to sit outside too.
This was my third visit to the cottage, this time with some walking friends. We love the peace and quiet - no cars in front of the cottage - just the gentle sound of the wind in the trees and the river below - and the walks from the front door are fantastic.
The cottage is comfy - there were 4 of us - and the log burner was much appreciated given the not so great spring weather.
We had a lovely short stay here with great walks from the doorstep. The cottage is cosy, comfortable and well equipped. The village had everything we needed and Amanda responded very quickly to any queries. We'd definitely recommend it though it is a steep climb to the main road.
After staying at riverdale for a short break with my husband, I can recommend it's quiet and refreshing location.
Coming from a busy city, riverdale cottage captured the essence of the peak district. It's only a short walk down the path to the shallow river for a paddle. I loved stepping out of the front door to the sound of the morning birds, with no traffic noise for once! It was great to be only a short walk off the main road as we could truly enjoy our peak district surroundings.
The cottage itself was stylishly decorated, and we'll equipt for cooking and preparing full meals. There is a lovely village shop or supermarkets in the next villages. We sat out on the patio on the warmer of the nights and enjoyed the unspoilt views of the dale.
The cottage was fantastic base for a weekend break in the Peaks. Whilst we did not cook but enjoyed eating out locally the kitchen is well equipped, lovely bathroom and two good size bedrooms. the lounge was cosy complemented with the wood burner.
We were fortunate to be abel to enjoy the sunshine and sit outside enjoying fantastic views over the river.
Only recommendation would be is to take some extra pillows....
Perfect location and perfect accommodation in the delightful Derbyshire Dales. The sun lit up the terrace in the morning - in November!, we walked along the Limestone Trail, across to Over Haddon, called in at the Lathkil Hotel for lunch and admired the fantastic views from the garden, visited Bakewell and Youlgrave village shops (the Youlgrave Village Shop is wonderful for essential supplies and open seven days a week) and we called in the brilliant Farmyard Inn. Back to the cottage each evening to relax in front of a roaring log burner and plan the next day. Cottage well equipped, warm, comfortable and very peaceful.
