Milldale Holiday Cottages Location

Peak District Holiday Cottages

The properties at Milldale Cottage Company are in a stunning location, offering the very best of the Peak District countryside. Situated in the White Peak, surrounded by rolling hills and wooded valleys, it sits alongside the babbling River Dove, famed for centuries for its fly fishing. The lovely valley of Dovedale, with its iconic stepping stones, is very close by.

Milldale is small, peaceful and utterly idyllic, and you’re assured a warm welcome from the village ducks. Polly’s Cottage in Milldale sells hot and cold drinks and delicious snacks, and is deservedly popular with the many walkers who come from all over Britain to explore this part of the Dove Valley.

Within walking distance is the quaint village of Alstonefield, which has a wonderful fine dining restaurant, The George, serving superb food.

Only 8 miles away you’ll find the historic market town of Ashbourne, renowned for its independent shops and cafés, and within 12 miles you can reach Bakewell, home of the famous pudding. Slightly further afield but still within easy driving distance is the graceful spa town of Buxton, famed for its graceful Georgian architecture and elegant Opera House.  

Buxton

Walking from Duck Cottage and Riverside Cottage

This is unbeatable walking and cycling country, and there are a great many walks into the surrounding countryside right from the front door of Milldale Cottage Company’s two fabulous properties. 

Milldale Cottage Company 8

Why not try a Let’s Go Peak District local walk during your stay?

Our Dovedale and Ilam Walk (6 miles) starts from nearby Dovedale. It crosses the famous stepping stones, walks on shady paths alongside the River Dove as it cuts between towering limestone cliffs, tracks through the grassy slopes of Hall Dale  and passes through the picture-perfect village of Ilam before returning to Dovedale. There are magnificent views along the way, although this route does not feel like a tough one and is a good one for the whole family to enjoy, maybe with a picnic en route.
