Lovely little character property, in an ideal location which has been excellently refurbished

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolute gem of a place, perfect for two with a cosy lounge, comfortable bedroom, lovely recently refurbished bathroom and quaint kitchen. Communication with the host was excellent, and the property was very convenient, with two pubs within a mile walk that we found, the bottom of Dovedale in a walk, and the small village having a nice traditional feel to it. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to walkers and fans of pubs. The George in Alstonfield is particularly worth a visit, but booking is advisable.

Lovely cottage in a peaceful spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Old Millers Cottage for 3 nights in October and had a wonderful experience. The cottage is exactly as shown in the photos, with a recently refurbished bathroom, very clean and well kept, and a small, but very well equipped kitchen. The owner was very helpful with any queries we had and made the check in / check out very easy, even though we arrived late on the Friday.

Would definitely be happy to come back and recommend to friends!

Here in the White Peak area of the Peak National Park, characterised by its rolling plateau split by steep sided dales, lies the beautiful hamlet of Milldale.The hamlet nestles at the end of Dovedale and enjoys numerous walks starting and finishing there,with parking and a small refreshment shop for visitors. The cottage is the perfect starting point for visiting the surrounding Dales, explore the crags, caves,spires and deep limestone ravines of this iconic landscape. The area has been popular with anglers since the 17th Century after Izaak Walton and Charles Cotton published 'The Compleat Angler'. It is from this book that the bridge at Milldale, crossing the River Dove, gets its name .

Short journeys by car is all that is required to take you to many local attractions and towns. The seat of the Duke of Devonshire, Chatsworth House, is close by with its award winning farm shop. Visit Bakewell and try a pudding, Buxton for opera and it's Georgian Crescent architecture. Carsington Water offers plenty of activities from a walk around the lake, to power boat courses! Ashbourne and Buxton Spa are both within a 25min drive and include major stores and supermarkets. The area is a haven for walkers,sightseers and day trippers all searching for enjoyment and relaxation, Old Millers Cottage is the perfect setting for you to be based. An excellent choice of restaurants is available or pubs in beautiful rural locations also specialising in good quality food.

There is no internet / wifi at the cottage. Also do to the steep valley sides there is no mobile phone reception, you have to travel to higher ground to get a signal.
