“A piece of paradise”
Reviewed May 7, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The cottage is fantastic. Ideally situated just outside the famous Peak District village of Milldale. The cottage is really well equipped, cosy and perfect for a short break. There is only one bathroom and bedrooms 2 and 3 are small but these are easily managed.

The cottage is characterful and surrounded by magnificent, peaceful and staggeringly beautiful countryside.

The welcome pack of wine, tea, coffee, butter, marmalade and cheese was the icing on the cake.

Would definitely look to visit again.

“The most idyllic, cosiest getaway from everything cottage”

person found this review helpful

Everything about the cottage was just wonderful. The location is beautiful. Peace and tranquility without feeling isolated. There is everything in the cottage you could need-and more. It's a rarity to find self catering accommodation where you have the little extras included (dishwasher tabs, washing liquid, tea towels, even coal and kindling) We wanted for nothing. Except a few more days on our stay!!!
We felt cuddled by this beautiful place and didn't want to leave.

Had a great time at Bankside Cottage with our friends. The setting is in a lovely area and the cottage although a bit on the small side (second double bedroom) was very cosy and well equipped. The price was really reasonable and we had a lovely relaxing long weekend

“Ideal country getaway”
Reviewed February 18, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We spent three nights in this excellent cottage but could have spent more. It is easy to get to and is great value for money. The facilities and furnishings in the cottage make for an extremely comfortable stay and the surrounding area is beautiful. The cottage also has plenty of information on things to do. There are a couple of pubs not too far away and various walks around Dovedale but the open log fire in the cottage provides an inviting alternative for the lazy man's retreat. A great stay made better by the cleanliness of the cottage and the warmth of the welcoming from Vicki.

“A gem of a character cottage!”
Reviewed February 9, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We really don't want to leave, the cottage and location is absolutely idyllic and as you can see, wonderful wifi!

We booked a three day break for a small group of friends as a getaway from it all weekend and that's exactly what we've been able to do! Zero phone reception for miles, absolute bliss...

The cottage has everything you would need, literally everything... greeted with a wonderful basket complete with a bottle of wine, tea bags, coffee, fresh bread - really lovely and considerate! The cottage is like a tardis, picture postcard stuff on the outside and equally beautiful and deceptively spacious on the in.

Parking space to the side, the cottage sits on a quiet lane in Milldale and at the base of many fantastic walks. Boot room, separate dining room, amply stocked kitchen, lovely log fire...seriously perfect!

There is nothing you need to bring with you but yourselves and your walking boots and slippers, we've loved every minute of being here, it's excellent value for money at the same time.

I loved the log fire, extra deep bath tub filled with bubbles, power shower, king size bed in the master room, I could go on and on and on! Highly recommend the cottage and equally, Vicki was in contact promptly with full instructions prior to stay. We will definitely be back (that's if we actually leave this time).... We don't want to go :-(

Without a moments hesitation, book this cottage!
