The Barn at The Old Bakery
Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
The Old Bakery Barn was originally one of the oldest properties in the pretty Derbyshire Dales village of Youlgreave . The Barn is accessed from a courtyard and has views across the charming countryside towards the neighbouring village of Over Haddon. Inside is a comfortable spacious lounge area containing two sofas, one of which can form an extra bed for two. A large TV with an extensive DVD collection is available for guests use. There is a dining table and 4 chairs. In the newly fitted kitchen there is an induction 4 ring hob and an electric fan oven, together with a microwave, fridge and washing machine. All the utensils and crockery necessary to prepare delicious meals are provided there for your use. The large and airy bedroom with a king sized double bed is at the opposite end of the property, and has a Velux window through which you can fall asleep watching the starry night sky. The bedroom and lounge are joined by a hallway with plenty of storage space for your belongings and from which the bathroom with bath and overhead shower leads off. The Barn is centrally heated throughout, making it warm and cosy even when the weather outside is cold. It has a private balcony where you can sit and enjoy a glass of wine and watch the world go by on those sunny afternoons and evenings. There is free secure parking next to the cottage.
The Barn is a fabulous place to use as your base for a walking holiday in the Peak District or for cycling or sight seeing across the whole wondrous area that makes up the unique White Peak.
There are three village pubs in Youlgrave, all serving good quality home cooked meals and a butcher who sources his meat locally. The popular tourist town of Bakewell with its famous pudding and tarts is just three miles away.
The town of Matlock, which offers fantastic sight seeing via the Heights of Abraham's cable car, is 8 miles away.
Chatsworth House is within walking distance as is Haddon Hall. Both well worth a visit.

A lovely place to stay in a very traditional village. The accommodation was clean, modern, well looked after and has everything you need. The owners were very helpful and on hand if we needed them. The location is ideal, with Bakewell just down the road and many walks on your doorstep. Will be recommending and returning in the future.
