Riverside House : The House Guest Book

In our guests' own words . . .

What a fabulous cottage set in beautiful surroundings.  The cottage is exceptional with everything you need for a family holiday.  The lounge is the focal point of the cottage with a log burning stove and enough logs to burn for a year.  The kitchen is large and very well equipped. 
The cottage is within a two minute walk to get onto the Monsal Dale Trail.  
Riverside House is exceptional, I can't recommend this place more highly, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and dealing with the host Wendy was also exceptional.  We shall return!

We had a wonderful time staying at Riverside House to celebrate our Ruby Wedding Anniversary with our family.  The house is beautiful with lots of space and is very comfortably furnished.  The kitchen is incredibly well-equipped and spacious, so cooking for a crowd was very easy.  There was plenty of cupboard storage space and we were glad of the two fridges and freezer.  The garden is very private and was great for eating out and to be able to step out of the house and walk along the river and up to the railway line was great. 

The games room is excellent and the provision of board games was fantastic.  The beds were comfortable and everything was very clean.  It is so well loved and looked after - we will definitely be wanting to come back or go to Valley View for another family get together.  Thank you Wendy.

We stayed at Riverside House with all the family to celebrate our son's 18th birthday.  It was home from home.  Spacious, beautifully equipped with everything you could think of.  So it rained.  Did not make a scrap of difference.  We stoked up the wood burner and actually had the time to be a real family playing board games and cooking together.  And the welcome packs were such a bonus.  We are already planning on when we can visit again!

April 2019


We stayed at Riverside House as a party of 8 + 2 dogs for a family break.  The cottage was immaculate, spacious, well equipped and very homely.  The whole family loved the games room.  Having the river Wye at the bottom of the garden was lovely, along with the beautiful Monsal trail right outside the front door for some great walks and refreshing pubs!

We all had a perfect break and would highly recommend Riverside House and the professional service provided by Wendy (including the doggy welcome packs!)


We can't wait to return next year and to explore more of the stunning Peak District.

 We had a fantastic time at your lovely house.  Even the online pictures don't really do justice to the size and layout and setting of the house which were all amazing. It was also spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. 

The unlimited supply of logs was a real bonus and we really enjoyed the welcoming fires, although we were very lucky with the brilliant weather.  

In conclusion we had a wonderful week at an amazing house and could find no fault whatsoever, only praise!  We would certainly like to stay there again.
