    'Quality in Tourism GOLD AWARD for exceptional quality of accommodation and customer service'.

    Situated in the beautiful village of Millers Dale, near Tideswell in the heart of the Derbyshire Peak District.

    Spacious, beamed, quiet but not too isolated and lovingly maintained, the cottages are situated where Millers Dale meets Monks Dale - a conservation area of outstanding natural beauty, renowned for its excellent walking with a network of paths leading directly from the door. There are paths of all grades from very easy to more challenging past towering limestone cliffs and along peaceful rivered dales.

    Our cottages are collectively called Monks Retreat because from the 12th to 15th century there was a monastery on this site. They comprise: Monks Memories (sleeping 2), Friars Folly (sleeping 4) and Abbots Abode (sleeping 6) - all ETC rated 4 star.
