Trying to remember the name of a place I visited in the Dales about 20 years ago.

It was a walking trail with stepping stones over a river.......there was also a part of the river that was really shallow that people were walking across.

Thinking of going with the DCs next year.

Second question is: does anyone know of a lovely cottage for 4, remote but not too remote???

That's definitely dove dale.

The walking trail was probably the Tissington Trail.

Would agree it’s dovedale

Was it Dovedale? Or elsewhere on the river Dove?

You might want to wait for another eleven posters to confirm though 😂

Honestly, there were no replies when I started typing!!

There's also stepping stones down Chee
Dale and you can walk along the Monsal Trail to get there.

But it's more likely to be the Dove Dale stepping stones.

Was the water bleeding freezing with the sharpest tiny pebbles known to man that embed into the sole of your feet? That's Dovedale. Right near Thorpe Cloud.

Yes, yes and yes!

It was Dovedale! Thank you all smile places/cottages to stay near Dovedale?!

What time of year are you going? Peak season is heaving at Dovedale and won't be the rose tinted experience you remember it as!

You're probably right!

Either Feb half term, Easter or May half term.
