Valley View : The House Guest Book

In our guests' own words . . .

We had a wonderful weekend at the cottage which fitted in all our different family members really well.  Your lovely cottage and the glorious weather made our 50th wedding anniversary family celebration really special.  With its lovely situation looking up the valley, we were happy to just sit in the garden or the more energetic went for walks or runs of varying lengths, with the little ones going to the ice cream shop or feeding the duks!

The stay at Valley View was brilliant.  Our large party had plenty of space in a very comfortable cottage with every facility needed.  BBQ and outside dining with awesome countryside views, sitting out till under the stars.  Local walks from the cottage in Dovedale a delight.  Would love to return.

We had a wonderful time celebrating a birthday with some lovely walks and trips out.  There were 15 of us ranging from a few months old to 70 and we all loved Valley View and the area.

We had a lovely stay.  The house is fabulously well equipped and we had everything we needed.  When our Aussie son in law arrived first he was amazed at the place.  We particularly enjoyed The George.  And the lovely walk back down the lane.  Having lived in the area between '85 and 2000 the walk along the Dovedale trail brought back some fabulous memories.

Valley View is in a stunning location and commands beautiful views of the surrounding landscape of hills and fields. The sound of birds and the very nearby River Dove adds to the blissful ambience of the house. The accommodation itself is spacious, there were 13 of us, very clean, fantastically equipped and beautifully decorated without being fussy. We travelled without children or dogs but there are cots, highchair, fire guard, dog bowls etc etc if you are coming as a family. The lounge is large and with corner sofas and easy chairs easily accommodated us and a log burner for cooler evenings is a lovely addition. The dining table is large enough for all and commands lovely views. We use it as a base for socialising and walking and just park the cars for the weekend and walk the River Dove which is a 2 minute walk down the lane, to Alstonefield which has good pubs but many more walks can be done from the house. Chatsworth is in easy reach and Ashbourne is well worth a visit, as is Tissington very near by, Hartington and Illam. The owner responds very quickly to emails and is very helpful and her caretaker is easily contactable. I would thoroughly recommend Valley View although not too heartily as we go every year and don't want it to become too booked up as it is a real ge.
