Dovedale proved to be very popular and we spent 3 very enjoyable days there.

The breakfast we had delivered to our door on our last morning was delicious! It's quite pricey but it kept us going, with a few snacks, until supper when we got home so it was worth it.

Yes there was a lot of evidence to support this.

The accommodation had everything we needed and the owners were welcoming and informative. It was a good overall experience.

The landscape and walking.

Bring a good pair of walking boots, you will want to use them!

review 5 Jan 2011

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Waking up to see the sun filtering through to the snowy hills opposite us, sheep grazing and the moon still high. It was so peaceful, beautiful and relaxing. Also, the wonderful walk on (somewhat icy) Bunster Hill, down the valley to the picturesque village of Ilam.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Take walking boots, bring provisions, and just enjoy!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Yes - we were staying on an organic dairy farm, which is a family-run concern. They supply other businesses (including some of the large supermarket chains) with their produce. We bought many of our provisions directly from them. In terms of environmental impact, we travelled by public transport and were picked up by Sue in Ashbourne, the nearest town. We recycled or composted most of our waste. We walked everywhere!

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Absolutely wonderful! We had a very relaxing stay in the cottage, and wish we could have stayed for longer.
