We stayed at Riverside for 2 nights, 30/31st October, as a base for a visit to the various caverns in and around Castleton. Having read other reviews on here I wondered if it would live up to my expectations. well, it exceeded them. We were in the Green Woodpecker room, which was spotlessly clean, and had lovely touches such as a tin of biscuits, some cards and games in the cupboard, and a corkscrew, which is something I always forget to pack.
Roger is a fantastic host - attentive but not intrusive, and is someone who clearly loves what he is doing, and takes great pride in doing it. The breakfasts were as wonderful as other reviewers have mentioned. We will definitely be back - at a warmer time of year to take advantage of the beautiful garden.
The location was great - very peaceful little village (although the road was closed nearby, so there was no through traffic. The Manifold inn was great for dinner, and the Peak area offers so much to do.
