Lovely, clean cottage in a pretty village

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very well presented, clean with everything we needed. The fresh flowers were a lovely touch. The cottage is in a pretty village with easy access to walking and we were able to start walks from the cottage without needing to use the car. Car parking was easy in the residents' car park. We thoroughly enjoyed our week and would definitely return to the Old Miller's Cottage

Lovely cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage in the perfect location. Great walks on the door step with stunning views. A walk along the river is a must, followed by an ice cream at the local shop.

Magical location

  • 5 of 5

I loved our stay at Old Millers Cottage. Great space, perfect for our 3 day stay.

Went hiking and fly fishing right out the front door. An unforgettable memory.

Thank you Ant for a wonderful visit. We will return.

sweet cottage, great location but very busy at weekends, would go again

  • 4 of 5

perfect for two as long as you don't want to snuggle up on the settee, as tiny cottage. Great for a base for exploring surrounding area with fab walks and friendly pubs.

Characterful, clean and cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage had everything we needed for our Easter break, beautiful accomodation and surroundings . We parked the car and didn't use it again until it was time to go home. We enjoyed many wonderful walks from the front door and enjoyed going back to such a lovely, well equipped cottage. Pure bliss! Oh and of course The George at Alstonfield being a short walk away was an added bonus. Wonderful food as always but it does seem necessary to book at weekends.

Many thanks and look forward to returning soon,

Sarah, Steve and Daisy

Here in the White Peak area of the Peak National Park, characterised by its rolling plateau split by steep sided dales, lies the beautiful hamlet of Milldale.The hamlet nestles at the end of Dovedale and enjoys numerous walks starting and finishing there,with parking and a small refreshment shop for visitors. The cottage is the perfect starting point for visiting the surrounding Dales, explore the crags, caves,spires and deep limestone ravines of this iconic landscape. The area has been popular with anglers since the 17th Century after Izaak Walton

and Charles Cotton published 'The Compleat Angler'. It is from this book that the bridge at Milldale, crossing the River Dove, gets its name .

Short journeys by car is all that is required to take you to many local attractions and towns. The seat of the Duke of Devonshire, Chatsworth House, is close by with its award winning farm shop. Visit Bakewell and try a pudding, Buxton for opera and it's Georgian Crescent architecture. Carsington Water offers plenty of activities from a walk around the lake, to power boat courses! Ashbourne and Buxton Spa are both within a 25min drive and include major stores and supermarkets. The area is a haven for walkers,sightseers and day trippers all searching for enjoyment and relaxation, Old Millers Cottage is the perfect setting for you to be based. An excellent choice of restaurants is available or pubs in beautiful rural locations also specialising in good quality food
