The Old Bakery Barn was originally one of the oldest cottages in the pretty Derbyshire Dales village of Youlgreave, within Derbyshire's Peak District. The Barn is accessed from a courtyard and has charming views of the spectacular countryside.

The comfortable spacious lounge area has two sofas, one of which can form an extra bed for two. 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 is a dining table and 4 chairs. A large TV with an extensive DVD collection is available for guests use. A light and airy bedroom at the opposite end of the property boasts a king sized double bed and 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. The bathroom with bath and overhead shower leads off the hallway. 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, (simple walking guides are provided), 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.

Set in the heart of the beautiful Peak District National Park, parts of the house date from the 12th Century, sitting like a jewel in its Elizabethan terraced gardens, and overlooking the River Wye"

We hope to see you again.

"Excellent place to chill out and unwind"

We stayed Monday to Friday but it wasn't long enough, we were lucky with the weather, it was just right for walking. The barn is very welcoming and spotlessly clean, and is a great base for many walks. Ken and Carol are very friendly and are close by if you have any problems. The biscuits and the wine were a lovely treat. It is a very friendly village as well

Thank you for review and kind words it is much appreciated.
You have identified the great treat of being able to walk out of the front door and experience some of what the Peak District National Park has to offer.
We hope to see you again.

"A great base for a few days walking right from the front door"

The barn @ the old bakery is a lovely cosy little flat. It was immaculatly clean and extremely well equiped. We found everything we could have wanted and more.
The flat is well situated in the heart of the village where there are great local amenities too. It was wonderful to have beautiful walks right from the front door and we enjoyed recovering in the village pubs after a full day walking. The produce from the butchers just next door made for lovely dinners and picnic lunches too.
Ken and Carol provided us with lots of useful information both prior to our arrival and left available in the flat. They also gave us a much appreciated very warm welcome.
We're already trying to work out when we can go back!
A big thank you to Ken and Carol.

Thank you for review and kind words, they are much appreciated.
You have obviously experienced a lot of what the village has to offer and met some of the friendly local folk.
We are pleased to read that you enjoyed the local pubs, we are blessed with a choice of three which in one village is most unusual nowadays. The local walks offer a great opportunity to view some spectacular scenery, we are pleased to read that you enjoyed some of these.
We hope to see you again.

"The Barn @ the Old Bakery was just perfect."

We enjoyed a delightful 3 days at the Barn.
Ken and Carol have thought of everything - the apartment is beautifully decorated, well equipped and very comfortable. Though the owners live nearby, and so are on hand for advice or help, we had complete privacy.
Youlgreave sits in lovely peaceful countryside with endless walking (and getting lost) opportunities. It lies roughly between the two very attractive towns of Matlock and Bakewell.
Both of these places are worth visiting and we heartily recommend Stone's restaurant in Matlock (probably wise to book ahead) for an evening meal.
Also with visiting is nearby Haddon Hall which has lovely gardens.
Three days was really not enough time to enjoy all that the area has to offer but was a wonderful taster.
We have no hesitation in recommending the Barn and would love to visit again.

Thank you for your review
You have obviously sampled a small amount of what is on offer in the Peak District National Park. We aim to provide a comfortable and relaxing experience which leaves our guests hoping one day to return again to continue their exploration of the Derbyshire a Dales. We hope to see you again.

"What a lovely find.."

Really enjoyed our stay at The Barn @ The Old Bakery . The Barn is equipped really well with everything you could need for your holiday and is a perfectly furnished. Ken and Carol also thoughtfully provide some really lovely extras like a pint of milk with tea, coffee and shortbread biscuits for that much appreciated drink on arrival and then for later on a chilled bottle of wine. When you want to venture further afield there is all the information and maps to point you on your way and Ken and Carol are more than happy to help with ideas. Our visit was far to short so we still have a lot to explore on our return visits but can recommend Chatsworth to fully appreciate everything you need to spend at least a day there, we also visited Buxton and Bakewell. We had our Sunday lunch at The Farmyard but do book your table early as it gets busy. we are looking forward to visiting again soon.

Thank you for your review.
As you appreciated, we try to ensure our guests feel 'at home' the moment they arrive.
The Barn @ The Old Bakery, as you have found out, is ideally situated to explore Chatsworth House.
Equally, Bakewell and Buxton offer retail therapy.
We look forward to you visiting us again.

"Perfect accommodation in a perfect location"

We have just returned from a lovely stay at The Barn at The Old Bakery feeling rejuvenated! Welcomed by friendly hosts, and the accommodation itself was faultless , comfortable, spotlessly clean with a great kitchen area. Ideally located for walks as well as local attractions, there is so much to do in this area we would love to return as there is still so much we want to see! The friendly butchers next door is also well worth a visit, great to stock up for picnics etc.

Thank you for your review.

"An ideal base to explore a a unique area"

Very comfortable and well equiped cottage. Ken is an axcellent host and ensured everything was Ok and we had access to all the information and guides we needed. His recomendation for the local pubs was "spot on" as was teh best drives and walks around the village. The driveway to the barn can be a challenge!

Thank you for your review.
There is so much to do and see in the Peak District National Park and as you say The Barn @ The Old Bakery acts as an excellent base to make a start in this exploration.
