Does this glorious weather make you think about summer holidays? The current heatwave in the UK is getting us all in holiday mood.  The sun is out in the Peak District too.  Lovely Dovedale above in the picture reaching 30 degrees!

There's plenty of things going on in this summer in the Peak District; here's a hightlight or two. 

Heights of Abraham - take the cable car to the top of the Heights for great views over Matlock and the Derwent Valley.  There are caves and woodland trails to discover and if the young ones still have energy two adventure playgrounds.  The underground mining caverns are explored by torchlight to get a feel of how things really were. There is a restaurant and bar at the top with spectacular views.  And why not finish off the day with a trip to Matlock Bath and some traditional fish and chips? Dogs travel free on the cable cars and there are 60 acres of estate to explore with your four-legged friends.   

Summer Nights Festival July - Sept - outdoor movie screenings are taking place in lovely heritage locations during the summer.  Bring a picnic and enjoy a film in beautiful surroundings. 
Calke Abbey - Pretty Woman - 2 Aug and The Greatest Showman - 3 Aug
Hardwick Hall - The Greatest Showman - 17 Aug and Dirty Dancing - 18 Aug

Mason Mills UNESCO World Heritage Site - experience life in an 18th Century Mill that was designed by Sir Richard Arkwright in 1783. Feel what life would have been like with the noise of the looms and smell of the textiles all recreated during your visit.  This working museum is one of the finest surving and best preserved of its kind.  There's also a shopping village and English textiles are on sale and other traditional crafted items.  Enjoy lovely tearooms overlooking the river Derwent. 

Chatsworth Country Fair - 31 Aug - 2 Sept - this annual country fair is a fabulous outdoor event which includes JCB Dancing Diggers, Household Cavalry Musical Ride, a cooking theatre and fine food village.  Opportunities to try your hand at country sports and crafts too. 

Derbyshire Well Dressings - the tradition of dressing wells with flowers, petals and seeds continues throughout the summer.
Stoney Middleton - 21 - 30 July
Bonsall - 28 July - 3 Aug
Great Hucklow - 9 - 15 Aug
Foolow - 24 Aug - 1 Sept
Eyam - 25 Aug - 1 Sept

Here's our very own Conor, enjoying a holiday in the Peak District at one of our holiday cottages. (The cottage in the picture is Valley View with stunning views over Dovedale). 

Many holiday cottages will only accept one or two dogs at the most.  That's where we are different from the rest.

You know your dogs and pets deserve a holiday as much as you do and that's why our large self catering cottages accept up to five dogs at any one time.  So if you are on holiday with family members and friends you can all bring your four-legged friends along too.

There are walks galore from the holiday cottages.  At Valley View enjoy walks along the river Dove or the nearby Tissington Trail and at our other cottage, Riverside House, there's the river Wye and Monsal Trail right on the doorstep.

And just like you, your dogs will love snuggling up to our cosy log fires.  We don't stint on logs either, when you book with us you get an unlimited free supply of logs and kindling to use during your stay.  

If you'd like more information on taking your dog on holiday with you, or details about our short break prices for 2018, get in touch now!

Many good citizens want to "do the right thing" when they go on holiday and there are many ways this could be defined.  As holiday cottage owners in the Peak District we are no exception.  Defining what "the right thing" for us is simple: we try our best to ensure our cottage is loved by our guests, that a stay with us does not impact unduly on the environment and that we find ways to support the local economy. 

To "do the right thing" in the past we have:

  • given a high level of customer service, responding quickly, answering questions and meeting guests needs
  • making sure the holiday cottages are fully-equipped and stocked for a self catering break
  • added insulation and underfloor heating at Riverside House holiday cottage
  • encouraged recycling wherever possible
  • and supported our local economy be promoting the best services available from businesses right here in the Peak District

We feel that we can do even better and for this reason we are currently trialling a new approach by collaborating with a local company called www.SaucedHere.co.uk.  We think our collaborations will not only benefit our guests but reduce our environmental footprint and directly support local businesses.

SaucedHere is a new service in the Peak District run by Bakewell resident Luke Osborne.  It provides an alternative to an online supermarket delivery be allowing you to shop conveniently, locally and responsibly.  SaucedHere offers a full basked of products (nearly 1200 in total!) all hand sourced from approaching 35 of the area's top purveyors.  You can visit the SaucedHere website and select all of your shopping from the vast array of local producers in the same way you might do so with the national chains.  When you order with SaucedHere, Luke and his team will then visit each of the local shops involved, collect the items you have selected and bring them to our holiday cottages in one convenient delivery at a time that you choose. 

Guests as well as local residents seem to love the service! It also has the added benefit of reducing the amout of miles your shopping takes to reach you as so many of the products are made right here in the Peak District.

Clearly the local economy benefits too as the areas' independent shops don't get overlooked by the convenience associated with placing an order with a national supermarket chain.  

If you are staying with us we would encourage you to shop with SaucedHere and help us to "do the right thing" in our wonderful Peak District National Park.

Are you planning on a holiday with a large group of friends or a large family group? 

It can be really difficult trying to find the right date, the best accommodation and where to stay.  

Here's some tips to make it just that bit easier!

Choose one person to act as group coordinator, preferably someone who has some time during the day or evening to deal with emails and phone calls within the group and with accommodation providers.

Next set the date and make sure everyone puts it in their diary or calendar.  For a large group you are going to need to plan far in advance, at least 6 months if not longer if you want school holiday dates (even up to one year in advance).   If you are planning for a special birthday or anniversary the date may not be flexible.  Even more reason to plan far in advance.

Now find which area you'd like to stay in, with a back up destination too.  Look at the map and where you all live.  Where is relatively easy for all the group to get to?  Do you need public transport links?   Do you want a rural break or town break? 

List the criteria for the accommodation: number of bedrooms, bathrooms, size of lounge, kitchen, are towels and bed linen required, do you need pet or child friendly accommodation, a garden, games room, wi fi, log fire or off street parking?  Do you want a pub nearby or local shops or do you want to be able to go on long walks from the door?  The list is seemingly endless so pick the top three to five criteria for your search as you probably won't find everything that you want.  

Now start looking for accommodation armed with your information.  Many of the large holiday cottage websites allow you to search by date, size of group, region and by pet friendly and child friendly criteria.  This will really narrow down the search.  Take a look at Owner's Direct and Holiday Lettings amongst the big ones, but also look for regional specific websites.  In the Peak District there's the Ashborne Accommodation website and Visit Tideswell, both run by local holiday cottage owners.

In the organic search engine listings you can also search for 'sleeps 9', 'sleeps 10' etc and the area or region too.  This will then bring up plenty of independent holiday cottage owners websites.

You will end up with a list of possibilities.  Start sending out emails to the owners direct or via the larger websites you can send a number of emails at once.  Key questions are size of accommodation, availability, pet, child friendly and of course price!

Let the group coordinator handle all this and draw up a short-list of three.  You may not have much time to decide as the large holiday cottages book up fast!  Give everyone in the group a deadline to respond and pick a favourite and a second and even third choice. 

Get the group coordinator to call the holiday cottage owner direct, speaking to them will answer so many of the questions you have and show that you are genuinely interested.  You will also get a chance to pick their brains about the area, where to eat, visit and what facilities the cottage has.

Be prepared to pay a deposit of 25% or more to book the holiday cottage.  The coordinator of the group can pay that up front and claim back from the group later.  Find out when the balance and breakages bond is required and let the group know when their share of the payment is needed.  Collect this in advance of the due date.

Don't leave your best four-legged friends at home when you go on holiday.  Bring your dogs on holiday with you and all the family will enjoy a self-catering cottage break.

Holiday cottages are ideal for pet friendly holidays, especially when located in the lovely British countryside.  There's always plenty of walks and outside fun to be had.

At both our holiday cottages, Riverside House and Valley View, we welcome up to five dogs.  

Some of the fun things to do at the holiday cottages include splashing about in the river; going on traffic free walks on either The Monsal Trail or the Tissington Trail; visiting some dog friendly attractions and pubs and of course relaxing in front of the log fire. 

There really is no need for expensive kennel fees when you can bring your dogs with you.

Ask us about dog friendly attractions, walks and pubs that are near our holiday cottages.  

Or take a look at our Top 10 Dog Friendly Guide to the Peak District.

We're pleased to announce that we've teamed up with Cottage Catering and the lovely Rachel.  We were lucky enough to try some of Rachel's fresh and tasty home cooked meals in January with friends and they were so delicious we have immediately added her to our recommend list of caterers.

We tried tomato and orange soup, goats cheese tartlets, chicken and leeks in dijon cream sauce and warm chocolate orange brownie.  It was all divine.   

From one to four courses and for 4 to 20 guests, Rachel's food will suit all tastes.  She will prepare packed lunches, buffets and dinner parties. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten free can be catered for too. 

Prices start from £13 per head for two courses or £16 for three.  Rachel and her team will come to the holiday cottage about one and a half hours before the meal and you can relax as they even do the washing up!  

So if you are thinking of booking a holiday cottage in the Peak District for a special birthday, anniversary or retirement do get in touch with Rachel at Cottage Catering to make your visit even more special.

Are you lucky enough to be able to take a holiday cottage break outside of the school holidays?  Can you take advantage of economy season mid-week breaks? If you are retired or semi-retired or have some holidays left, these deals are ideal.  

Now is the time to grab yourself a bargain.  Many holiday cottages will have some November and early December weekends available as well as mid-week break deals.

At Riverside House and Valley View holiday cottage, we have some great mid-week offers. Take a look at the box opposite this blog post and you will see our mid-week deals for November for both holiday cottages.   Both are available for 9 to 13 November at good reductions for 9 to 15 guests.  The price for a four night break is as low as £58 per person (based on 12 sharing at Riverside House) so why not take a last minute holiday with us? 

There's still plenty of things to do and see in the Peak District at this time of year, as well of course walks and pubs to dive into!  If you need more ideas take a look at our top 10 guides for the Peak District.  

If you would like to take advantage of a mid-week deal get in touch:

I guess I've got that Halloween feeling, which means that this week the blog is about autumn dishes for a self catering holiday cottage break.

At our holiday cottages, Riverside House and Valley View the kitchen's are really well-equipped so that you cook almost anything.  We've even got blenders for hearty soups and cake tins for something sweeter.

Talking of soups why not try a roasted pumpin soup?  It's so simple, no need to peel the pumpkin, just cut into sections, roast until soft, remove skin.  Meanwhile gently sweat onions and other veg that you have to hand, add roasted pumpkin, vegetable stock and blend.  There you have it, my simple, speedy and tasty autumn pumpkin soup!

Other easy dishes for a large self catering group would be hearty casseroles - meat or veg, curries, hot pots, baked potatoes, roasted vegetables and for desserts try baked apples, crumbles or a wicked chocolate sponge!

I'd love to hear your easy self-catering recipies and tips.

Make sure you are ready for the Great British weather!  You'll either need sun cream and lots of it, a hat or cap or an umbrella - we suggest that you pack both!

As you are likely to be staying in a country holiday cottage, don't forgot there are more insects in the countryside!  Pack some midge repellent,  hay fever tablets and we'd recommend some citronella candles for sitting outside or mosquito coils.   

If you are going to be in the big outdoors and going on longer walks than usual, pack your most comfortable and sturdiest walking shoes or boots.  Walking poles are a great help for descending and don't forget the waterproof!  Some tubi grip bandages might be handy in case you are unlucky enough to have a sprain.  

Navigating in the countryside can be tricky, so our advice is to get a detailed OS map of the area you are staying in and take it with you. That way you can plan the days walking and outings and not get lost!

You'll want some memories to treasure of your self catering holiday, so don't forget the camera or mobile.  And of course the chargers too.   
Check out what essentials are provided in your holiday cottage (toilet roll, dishwasher tablets, tea towels, salt and pepper, oil etc) and then make a list of what you'll need to bring.  Focus on the essentials only as you can do a local shop when there (part of the fun is shopping in lovely market towns for local produce) or you can get a supermarket delivery booked in.

If travelling with children and babies don't forget what they will need; bottles, beakers, nappies, some games and books, colouring pencils etc.

And if your four-legged friends are coming with you, things like dog bowls, dog treats, dog food, bedding, spare towels, doggy poop bags etc are all essentials to bring with you.

And finally just have some fun and enjoy your self catering holiday cottage break!

The latest UK self catering holiday trends seem to indicate that us Brits are opting for shorter staycation breaks, with the traditional two-week holiday on the decline.  It also seems that we are spending more this year compared to five years ago, so that's all round great news for holiday cottage owners.

So what's the benefit of taking a UK short break self catering holiday?


  • Short breaks are invaluable for destressing in short bursts and give an instant recharge to the batteries.  
  • There's less planning involved, so you won't need to pack as much for a short break
  • You can take more short breaks, so it feels like more time away and you can choose to visit different places
  • It's a great opportunity to explore your own country and enjoy what it has to offer
  • You'll be contributing to the UK economy
  • Save money too by shopping in supermarkets and catering in your holiday cottage kitchen, avoiding expensive meals out
  • It's unlikely that you will fly to your UK short break destination, so the travel should be easier and journeys shorter
  • You'll be in your own country with no hassles of currency exchange or foreign languages
  • You can take all the family on a short break or holiday with friends instead
  • You can even take your four-legged friends, many self catering holiday cottages accept pets, so that will avoid expensive kennel costs

Your holiday cottage is booked. Your suitcases are packed. However, you can’t quite bring yourself to ditch the work phone and laptop. If you really are unable to leave work behind for the duration of your self-catering break then try these 5 tips to have a more relaxing holiday.



  • Switch on your out of office. Even if you’ve told people you will be available, switch it on with a message saying you are away and will respond when able. This gives you breathing room and permission not to check your emails every 5 minutes.
  • Set aside specific times of the day that you will check in and deal with anything urgent. Perhaps an hour before breakfast and an hour after your evening meal. This sets yourself ground rules and also manages your holiday companions’ expectations.
  • If you must take a call or join in an audio conference, ensure you find a quiet place away from your holiday companions. You will be able to concentrate, making better use of the time, and it will be less distracting to all concerned.
  • Leave your work phone/tablet at your holiday cottage for at least one day of your holidays. You will be able to enjoy yourself more if you don’t have the pressure or temptation to check in.
  • Last, but by no means least, remember that you are on holiday! Relax, recharge and have fun!

One of the best things about a self-catering holiday, is the freedom to do as you please. You and your family are not bound by the set mealtimes dictated by the hotel you are staying in. In addition, you can choose to stay in and cook, or go out and find somewhere to eat. If you have children with you, or fussy eaters, it makes life so much easier if you have the facilities to quickly provide a favourite meal, even if it is beans on toast!
However, you don’t want to be away on holiday in a wonderful holiday cottage with breathtaking surroundings, and stuck in the kitchen for hours on end. It would hardly constitute a rest. The trick is to keep it simple. 
So here are a couple of options for you to try. Enjoy your holiday! 
Decadent Breakfast : (serves 2)
Ingredients: 2 eggs, some butter, 4 rashers of bacon, maple syrup, 2 thick-cut slices of bread.
Crack the eggs and whisk with a fork.
Cut the two slices of bread diagonally to form 4 triangles.
Heat a frying pan, and fry your bacon. Set aside. 
Add a knob of butter to your frying pan. Dip one of the triangles in the egg and then turn over to coat the other side. Place in frying pan, and fry on medium heat turning over once, until golden on both sides. Repeat with the other triangles.
Place French toast on plates, top with bacon and drizzle with maple syrup.

Healthy Breakfast : (serves 2)
Ingredients: porridge oats, water, milk (whichever type you prefer), seasonal berries, mixed seeds, honey or maple syrup.
In a saucepan tip in 2 handfuls of oats
Cover with cold water, and bring to the boil. Turn the heat down and allow to simmer until the porridge is cooked and beginning to thicken.
Divide into two bowls.
Heat some milk (or you may wish to have it cold)and set aside.
Sprinkle a handful of berries, topped with a tablespoon of seeds over the porridge. Drizzle with honey.
Carefully add milk pouring down the side of your bowls.

Every now and again, people get scammed by fake holiday cottage websites, or find themselves staying in cottages that are not at all like they looked in the advert. Not only does that hurt the individuals who lost money, it also hurts the industry, especially those of us who take massive pride in managing our own properties.


I want everyone to get the holiday they dreamt of, so here are a few tips for sorting the good from the bad:


  1. Don’t just email. If you want reassurance, give us a call. I’m always happy to talk directly to people who are interested in Riverside House or Valley View holiday cottages. When you speak to someone directly, it’s much easier to get a sense of whether or not they know what they’re talking about.
  1. Do a little bit of research. You’ve found a cottage that looks exactly like what you’re after, and it’s much cheaper than you expected. Bonus! But before you hand over your card details, have a quick look at other properties in the area. If the one you’ve found is really cheap in comparison, see if you can find out why. If it looks too good to be true, it might just be. Again, if in doubt, make a phone call. Sometimes cottages have special offers, especially last minute deals, so it might not be a bad sign, but without checking you won’t know until you get there.
  1. Google is your friend. As well as helping with your research, google street view and satellite view can be a useful tool. Street view may not always help – especially if you’re looking at rural locations – but switching map view into satellite mode can show you if your potential rental really is “100 yards from the beach”, or if you’re right next to the main road.
