Found River Cottage on the Web whilst looking for B&B for a long weekend in the Peak District. Not took keen on guest houses but as it was just a long weekend we browsed through looking for something that caught our eye. River Cottage was fanstatic. The room was beautiful with everything we would need in a room; shower gel, soap, room spray, flat screen tv, very comfortable bed, plenty of space, to name but a few, and it was all tastefully decorated and extremely clean. Ashford is one of the prettiest villages in the Peaks and is central for lots of great walks etc and River Cottage is on the edge of the village with a beautiful garden backing onto the river. We couldn't end without mentioning Gilly and John, who own River Cottage. A wonderful couple who make you feel very much at home and nothing is too much trouble ... and their breakfasts are to die for!! Sitting on the bank of the river on a warm August evening watching the trout in the river is a memory we shall treasure, together with everything about our weekend at River Cottage.
