Perfect family break
We have had the most fabulous break at River Lodge. The cottage itself is beautiful and spotlessly clean, the kitchen was fully equipped with everything and anything that you might need during your stay. Upon arrival we received a chilled bottle of Prosecco some delicious biscuits and some home-made cake which Julie had emailed me about previously to our stay to see if we were happy to receive (of course we were). The house and the grounds are incredibly well-kept and serviced all our needs. The views from the garden are breathtaking and It was so relaxing to sit out in the evening with the fire pit crackling away. We literally walked out of the garden to a number of different walking routes, we had a fantastic stroll along the river down to Ilam Village Where we stopped for a cup of tea at the Manifold cafe before continuing on to the stepping stones at Dove Dale (there is A great little ice cream and cake van at the car park before you head down to the stepping stones which the kids were over the moon about). There is plenty to do in the local area, we took a trip out one night and had a meal in Ashbourne and found it easy to get a taxi back and the price was extremely reasonable. We would highly recommend the cottage and have already booked again for next year for a two week stay.

Fantastic location for walks from the door. Accommodation itself very high standard. Clear and helpfull hosts who called by to check all was ok - which of course it was. Fully recommended.

One of the very best !
Our week in this property has been fantastic. It is one of the most beautiful locations and properties we have ever stayed in. Everything you could possibly want was provided. The place is so cosy and warm. We managed to get out on some stunning local walks most days, but one day the rain never stopped but we were more than happy to stay in and enjoy this lovely house. Owners Julie and John were lovely and really welcoming. We have just got back today and are already looking to book again !
