At last finally got round to doing a review after our fifth visit to the Milkmaids Cottage at Riding House Farm.
We cannot praise this accommodation highly enough - immaculately presented with all you need for a home from home feel. The location is fantastic with beautiful views all round. A short walk into Castleton itself with plenty of pubs & eateries should you not want to cook. Also, idealy located for great local walks straight from your door or just a short drive to the dams or Chatsworth House just to mention two of the local attractions.
Our hosts, David & Denise, are now good friends and we love to listen to the farm goings on from David and join him in feeding the lambs and calves, and collecting freshly laid eggs.
Can't wait for next years visit.... :-)
