Riverside House is a spacious holiday home sleeping up to twelve guests in four bedrooms, located in Litton Mill, a picturesque Derbyshire village in the very heart of the Peak District National Park. With a downstairs bedroom, bathroom facilities and living area, Riverside House provides easy accessibility and caters for the whole family including your four legged friends (up to five dogs may be accepted at a time, depending on size)!
Ideal for a family holiday or a break away with friends, Riverside House lends itself well to those who want to walk in the Peak District or enjoy a host of outdoor activities. It is equipped to a very nice comfortable standard and cosy at any time of the year with a log fire (unlimited free logs), games room and Wi-Fi, providing entertainment whatever the weather.
Situated directly next to The Monsal Trail, guests have immediate access to some eight miles of traffic-free cycling and walks with some spectacular views across the Monsal Viaduct. Bike storage facilities are provided and good mountain biking/off road cycling trails can be found in the local area, along with bike hire. For the younger ones, Alton Towers is just a forty minute drive away and for lovers of houses and gardens, a visit to Chatsworth House is a must and even closer (ten miles). The spa town of Buxton and market town of Bakewell (famous for its pudding or some would say tarts!) are both approximately eight miles and easy driving distance.
Alternatively, simply relax in the delightful surrounds of Riverside House and marvel at the views over the river from the enclosed garden and patio area or enjoy a BBQ on a sunny day. There is always something to do locally - why not feed the trout and ducks from the bridge; stroll along the River Wye to Cressbrook or walk Tideswell Dale to Litton village and enjoy a pint of local ale and some good pub food in the Red Lion (dogs welcome).
For those looking to celebrate a special occasion, spa retreats and catered dinner parties can be arranged. The local pub, The Angler's Rest is an easy walk along the river (one mile) and Tideswell is a five minute drive (or forty minute walk) where you will find a deli, bank, pubs, butchers and local co-op grocery store for stocking up on provisions.
