A beautiful traditional stone built end terraced house, this property has been thoughtfully renovated to a high standard and sleeps up to four people.

A charming stone, end terraced cottage, situated on a hillside in the lovely village of Youlgreave, this lovely property is full of character. The cosy and inviting sitting room, with its dining area, is a comfortable place to relax in after the ‘rigors’ of a busy day’s sightseeing. There are two delightful bedrooms, one double and one adult bunk bedroom with a double on the bottom and a single on the top.

They are both beautifully decorated and offer a tranquil haven in which to enjoy a good night’s sleep. The bathroom is elegant, modern and well appointed, outside there is a front patio with furniture and a barbecue and a footpath leads from the cottage to the Bradford Dale Valley bottom. This property is a lovely base from which to explore this wonderful area.


Wonderful little haven
Just back from a fantastic 5 night break with my two kids (17&11) and our chocolate lab, staying at this lovely little cottage. The cottage has a lovely homely feel to it, traditional yet with all the mod cons too(including Smart Tv and WiFi). It's not an easy trek up and down the steep stairs/slope but it's definitely worth it! Couldn?t keep the kids or the lab out of the lovely river, which on warm days is quite busy with waders and swimmers.. although it's only for the brave, even on the hottest days of the year which we were lucky to enjoy during our stay, the water is icy cold! Didn?t stop the kids from having fun though! Lovely walks nearby, and lots of places to visit. The village of Youlgreave is lovely, friendly locals and boasts a village shop, post office, deli/cafe and 3 pubs. We only sampled one of these and can definitely recommend the George Hotel for wonderful pub grub.. especially the roasts and fish and chips! The owner of the cottage was very friendly and helpful when I called the day before to arrange key collection.. giving me tips of where to go and what to see! We'll hopefully be back very soon! ??

Absolutely perfect. Stunning cottage and location. Not ideal if you struggle with mobility as there is a bank which you have to walk up and down to bring in luggage but this was all part of the experience for us. Very clean and comfortable, like home from home. Beautiful village and everybody was very friendly

Tastefully organic with a lot to see and do in the region of Bakewell and Matlock
This haven in the Peak District, is a holiday my family and I will surely remember for its quiet triumphs... If you want to stay in the Peak District, in a cottage without frills, unencumbered, by gimmicks. Without the normal expectancy, unashamed luxury, then this bashful cottage is for you, guys. Cheaper than a Travelodge you can stay in the Peak District, in this delightful and most organic accommodation, nestling in its own pocket of paradise, and savour a great experience in Youlgreave in the foothills of the Peak district. The fact is, folks. I found a place that gave me the very best of the Peak District, and we had a fine old time. This cottage is a great little bolthole!!! Andrea and I had to forage a little bit! It was a challenge to find. That excited me! Tucked away behind a small green ?cliff? was this stone retreat in a tiny cluster of riverfront abodes, with a nature trail along the bank, below some 100 odd yards at the foot of the property. Access, was steep track straight to the bottom. The river morphed for miles, from brook to stream and then torrent, meandering through a small ravine, lined with woodland either side. Stone bridges and dry stone walls connected to some undulating forest, that became part of our backdrop and early morning constitutional. We tripped down this track with Stanley our dog for him to paddle and play. Not for long. This is where wildlife abounds! Back on the lead he goes. So, after a quick panning of this lush spot, flanking the ?fortification? was a sweeping route straight across a huge meadow heading for the Peaks. Now, the cottage, or ?The Notch?, as I called it, is cosy and unpretentious. Pretty, and characterful, with a touch of the rustic. Mandatory, Inglenook with wood-burner. Upstairs is even cosier. Some vintage decor and a clean comfy double bed, with bunks for the kids next door. Cheerfully presented bathroom. Demure furnishing, and local art on the walls. Lounging, sofas. The galley kitchen has a stairway ascending. It is dainty, fitted, conventional and straightforward. All cupboards provided for, and are ?unbuttoned?. A cute table and chairs by the window. We all found the accommodation unassuming and placid in humble repose. No beat of the drum or ceremony. It had a host of its own humble merits. A hospitable secluded lodge, with a heart. Friendly, without the flam. The peaceful and serene ambience warmed me to this wonderful piece of Derbyshire. Youlgreave, Matlock and Bakewell holds a great appeal for those visitors in search of unspoiled tradition and character bursting with a wealth of entertainment venues, attractions, parks and shops. The owners are helpful and lovely folk, and the maid, a real fastidious professional. I cannot praise the RIVER COTTAGE experience enough. We will return. You bet.

The cottage is cosy and comfortable with a wood burning stove which is delightful on a cold evening. There is a wonderful view over the valley and it is superb dog walking country.

I loved the cosy log fire in the evenings and sitting outside listening to the river which is just below River Cottage. The locals were friendly and the pubs were very welcoming. Overall, this was the very relaxed weekend I needed.
