Beautiful Peak District
Old Millers Cottage is delightful and is located in a superb position with excellent walks direct from the doorstep. Upon arrival we found the cottage to be clean, well presented and comfortable. This was our first holiday cottage rental and therefore unsure what to expect, it couldn't have been better. Thanks Ant.

A perfect spot
We loved our few days in Mill Dale. There are lots of beautiful walks from the doorstep. We are frequent visitors to the area but this was our first stay in Mill Dale...which can be busy during the day and is very quiet at night. It was great to be so close to the river... Just a shame that you couldn't see it from inside the house!

Sweet little cottage
The cottage was comfortable and updated to a high standard, and Milldale was a pretty little hamlet with good walking nearby. Only issue was a musty smell because there's some damp in one corner. It's an old cottage, built into the hillside, so I think the owners have done their best to mitigate this. Also would suggest the addition of a small, wall-mounted microwave. But it was a lovely stay.

Excellent stay
We really loved our time in the old miller's cottage, for the age of the property it was nearly immaculate and I don't envy whoever has to keep on top of all those spiders and their pesky webs. The cottage was very warm with the heating settings that had been left but we would recommend slippers for the tile floors downstairs. The decorations throughout are lovely and emphasise the cottages unique character. It loses a star for us on communication with the property owner when clarifying the check in time as this had changed from our original booking and for the size of the bed and doorway for the shower cubicle. My husband and I are both broad, tall-ish strong at 5ft6 my feet reached the end of the bed and my husband of 6ft2/3 had to curl up which is hard with his size and strength, the mattress was also uncomfortable for us but I think mattresses are a personal thing and not one size fits all it might be the dream for someone else. Neither of these things would prevent us from booking again or recommending the cottage to family and friends. We loved our stay for our minimoon. Thank you.
