It’s our family’s third visit to Ribblesdale Cottage. As usual it’s clean, tidy and homely. We simply love it here. Had a fantastic week visiting all the local attractions. Walks, eating out and always lovely to return after a busy day to relax and re-charge ready for the next day. Thank you for a warm welcome. Always nice touches, milk in the fridge, books, DVDs, games for the children. I am sure we will return again. Many thanks again.
It was too hot yesterday to venture out so I spent much of the afternoon in the garden being entertained by some of our resident wildlife. In particular this young robin, who has recently taken ownership! It's natural curiosity and an abundance of ants provided plenty of entertainment, together with the collared doves and wood pigeons that were having a birdseed-eating competition! ...

Another sunny afternoon and a short trip to another garage, this time in Youlgreave, provided the opportunity to walk home from there down the lanes and across the fields. It's only about 3 miles but very varied scenery and some great views ... See MoreSee Less
At last! After a closure of over 4 months we will be open from 1st August. We delayed our opening to ensure that we have all the necessary measures in place to be able to operate safely in compliance with the COVID-19 guidelines so that our guests can have complete confidence during their stay with us.
To ensure compliance we have engaged The Welcome Team, a professional company specialising in holiday property housekeeping services, to carry out our changeovers and laundry. They operate to a 3-step protocol: Clear the rooms, Clean everywhere, Sanitise the property including keys and key safe.
To provide extra confidence for our guests we will be maintaining a clear gap of at least 3 days between bookings (usually the gap will be 6 or 7 days). We are also limiting the number of guests to 5 in each cottage, who must be from no more than 2 households in line with the government's current regulation.
We have also made some changes to the provision of equipment and some furnishings to minimise the risk of contamination. We have removed all non-essential items from the kitchen including tea, coffee, sugar salt & pepper etc and reduced the provision of surplus crockery, cutlery, pots and pans. We have removed other non-essential items including our guest books, books & magazines, DVDs, tourist information and some soft furnishings. We provide liquid hand soap in the kitchen, bathroom and cloakroom and hand sanitiser inside the entrance door.
We are already fully booked for August and only have limited availability in September, but we have good availability from the beginning of October up to Christmas and would love to be able to welcome you soon. In the meantime keep safe and enjoy the rest of the summer. ... See MoreSee Less
A garage visit in Matlock last Thursday provided the excuse for a walk I'd never been on before to pass the waiting time. I decided to explore a section of the Limestone Way between Matlock and Bonsall. It was warm but rather cloudy when I started out across the Derwent bridge in the town centre and then headed straight on to join the Limestone Way footpath that begins just across the railway bridge. It's quite a climb to the top but the view is great from all parts of the path, first of all over the town and then higher up across the Derwent Valley. The path heads more or less straight south west passing over a broad ridge to the north west of Masson Hill before dropping down to Bonsall. It's an area I'll try to go back to soon to make a longer circuit. ... See MoreSee Less
