One of the main features of Valley View holiday cottage is its location in the heart of Dovedale, one of the most famous and picturesque areas in the Peak District National Park. Valley View has stunning views from the front of the property over Dovedale and literally within a stones throw of delightful walks along the river Dove. In fact there are walks in all directions and you will be spoilt for choice. The walk along the Dove is suitable for all ages and abilities and a visit to the famous stepping stones is a must.
Valley View is also very close to the Tissington Trail, ideal for traffic free cycling and walking for miles. There are pubs along the route, but it is also ideal for a picnic in the spring and summer months.
There is a great foodie pub only a short (but steep) walk up the lane to Alstonfield and it is an easy downhill walk back!

Ashbourne is a lovely market town with plenty of small shops to explore as well as a centre for antique lovers with many shops along the high street. There are good delis, cafes, pubs and restaurants too.
For those wanting more of an adrenaline rush, Alton Towers is only a 30 minute drive to Alton Towers. Many of our guests have taken the opportunity of visiting the UKs largest theme park while staying at Valley View holiday cottage.
