Sunnydale Cottage, Bankside
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Sunnydale Cottage is a beautiful two bedroomed cottage which has just been tastefully renovated and upgraded to provide luxury accommodation - your home away from home. The cottage is located down a quiet steep cobbled path, away from traffic (and parking) with super views of Bradford Dale and the River Bradford which is just a few steps away. However there is street parking usually available on the main road at the top of the hill and a village car park not too far away. This cottage provides the perfect retreat, far away from the hustle and bustle of daily life but the local pubs and village shops are just a few minutes walk away.
Set within the beautiful Peak District National Park, Youlgrave is an excellent location for walkers and nature lovers. From Sunnydale Cottage they are many walks which can be taken in any direction, you don't need the car to enjoy the stunning countryside but you need to be fit to tackle the walk back up the hill. . Should you prefer to venture further afield Bakewell, Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are all a short drive away - just a few of the many attractions on offer.
The cottage probably dates back to the 18th century and retains some of its original features. Although the ceilings are all normal height, one of the special features of the cottage is the low set windows upstairs which makes the property unsuitable for children but fantastic for lying in bed and enjoying the beautiful views.
As the River Bradford is just a few steps away soggy dogs are also a definite no - sorry.
This location is just perfect for a retreat for those wanting privacy for contemplation. Would be ideal for artists, poets and writers and anyone just wanting to get away from it all and embrace nature.
Excellent for enriching mind, body and soul

The Heart of England/Peak District
The Peak District National Park is the most visited National Park in Britain and yet there is always a beautiful quiet backwater where you can get away from the tourists and find your own bit of heaven.... this best describes Youlgrave village and in particular Bradford Dale where Sunnydale Cottage is situated. Well know as one of the best village displays of Well Dressings in June each year.
There are beautiful walks in all directions to suit all abilities and levels of fitness. The River Bradford provides an easy strolling path but for keen walkers the Limestone Way passes through Bradford Dale just below the Sunnydale Cottage, a 45 mile walk from Castleton in Derbyshire to Rocester in Staffordshire. There are a good range of walking books and maps available for use by guests staying at the cottage.
There are stately homes and grand houses to visit, Chatsworth, Haddon Hall and Eyam hall to name a few and beautiful historical towns and villages including Youlgrave, Bakewell, Ashford in the Water, Eyam ... the list is endless.
There is so much to do many people return year after year.

We've just spent a lovely weekend at sunnydale cottage. It's in a idealic sunny spot, in a little village overlooking the river and the woods. Really peaceful. You wake up greeted by the birds, and such a variety of them...You could just spend the whole day watching them and you would not get bored. But there's more to do.
The cottage in itself is really delightful. Very cosy and comfortable; all conveniences are there. It's like going from home to home. We enjoyed spending the evenings by the fire (it's a gas stove, but it really looks like the real thing and then you don't have to bother about cleaning ashes).
If you like walks, this is the place and just on your doorstep. It was raining a couple of the days but we did not mind. Lots of people were all in their gear, walking, but Sunday was a treat as the sun came out and the walk was even more pleasant. Coming back from the walk and sitting at the front on the sunny bench and taking it all in was heaven.
There are a couple of shops and pubs in the village, we did not try them but we were told they were good. Also, quite near other places of interest for both adults and children, but again we did not visit them as this weekend was just for chilling.
So yes, the perfect, cosy and romantic place for a holiday, whatever length. Only someone with mobility problems, might find the route to the cottage diffiult to access, as it is down a very steep pathway. Other than that, what is not to like.
