The holiday cottage is situated in Litton Mill near Millers Dale in the heart of the Peak District National Park and is an ideal location for walking, cycling, touring and rock climbing. Riverside House is in a beautiful setting and is a superb location for immediate access to many walks. The original nineteenth century mill in Litton Mill became notorious during the Industrial Revolution for its unsavoury practices, but it is now converted into flats.
From the doorstep of the holiday cottage are a number of walks. One of the most popular is along the Monsal Trail. Although it is a short steep climb up from the house, once there it is perfectly suitable for pushchairs, bicycles and dogs. Now the tunnels on the Monsal Trail are open you can hire bikes along the way and cycle or walk for 8 traffic miles and if you are fit enough all the way to Bakewell. You can alternatively start the walk at the disused Miller's Dale station to avoid the climb from the back of the holiday cottage.
