Valley View : The House Guest Book

In our guests' own words . . .

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.

June 2018


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.

The house is located in an area ideal for walkers of all levels with many traditional pubs close by.  The cottage is picturesque, cosy, well equipped and spacious with a dining room that was just brilliant for large dinner parties and party games..it really is an excellent feature.  The log burner in the lounge made the cottage all the more cosy and our canine companion was very happy on a rug in front of it every evening.  The bedrooms are comfortable and airy and the family bathroom has a very deep free standing bath ideal for a soak after those long walks.

The house is wonderful and has everything you possibly could need.  Location couldn't be better; the views are beautiful.  We walked from the front door (Tissington, Thorpe Cloud and Dovedale) and the extra boot room to arrive home to is a great idea.  Loved the log fire, and the kitchen is spacious and well stocked.  Communication with Wendy prior to arrival was excellent; very helpful.  Would definitely return.

This is a lovely property in an idyllic setting. Picture postcard stuff!  I've stayed here with a group of friends several times over the last few years and we hope to return for many more visits.  The house is spacious, clean, comfortable and as well equipped as you could wish for.  The perfect place to gather and relax for as long as possible!  Of course there are also beautiful walks from your doorstep - something for everyone in the group!
