The Area:

Youlgrave is an attractive village at the junction of the rivers Bradford and Lathkill. It is an excellent base for exploring the White Peak area by foot, cycle or car and, for those simply wishing to relax, offers the peace and quiet of the unspoilt English countryside.

There is a Post Office/grocers, a butcher/deli and 3 pubs all serving food.

The pretty market town of Bakewell is a short drive away and there is a regular bus service.

Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are easily accessible and the spa towns of Matlock and Buxton can be reached in about 20 minutes.

It is about one hours drive to Alton Towers.

The Accommodation:

The front door opens into a large kitchen/diner with delightful views from the oak dining table. The floor is tiled wih under floor heating. One door leads to the garden and the other to a utility room with space for coats and where the washing machine and tumble drier are located. Off the utility room is a toilet with handwash basin.

To the left of the front door is the spacious lounge with solid oak flooring and wood burning stove (logs are provided). French doors open to the garden and offer a pleasant view across Bradford dale to the hills opposite.

Along the length of the rear of the house is a glass covered verandah providing a useful area to put on and take off boots and somewhere to enjoy the warm summer rain. There is a delightful garden with lawn, flower beds, patio area and excellent views.

A staircase from the kitchen/diner leads to the first floor landing. To the left at the top of the stairs is a twin bedded room with good, open views. To the right is the master bedroom with double bed, en-suite toilet with hand wash basin and with excellent views from its two windows. Turning back along the landing is the shower room with large 'walk in' shower, wash basin and toilet. The third bedroom, with pitched ceiling and oak beams, has a single bed and a folding bed for use when needed.

The Peak District National Park region

The Peak District National Park offers some of the most beautiful English countryside with its many river valleys and picturesque villages. The market towns of Bakewell and Asbourne are a pleasure to visit as are the spa towns of Matlock and Buxton. At Matlock Bath a cable car will take you from the promenade to the Heights of Abraham with its caves and many visitor attractions. During the summer months many villages hold their 'Welldressing' weeks during which ancient water sources are decorated with elaborate pictures constructed from flower petals set in clay.

There are many stately homes to visit including the magnificent Chatsworth House and the charming Haddon Hall.

There are many well marked footpaths offering opportunities ranging from a gentle stroll to a challenging all day hike.

Youlgreave

"Warm, charming, cosy and comfortable"

This was such a lovely cottage. It had everything we needed. Clean, charming, lovely views and lots of character. The heating system is wonderful. The cottage gets very warm very quickly and the under floor heating in the kitchen was so welcoming in the mornings. The kitchen is brilliantly kitted out and the walk in shower was lovely too! Great location for some wonderful walks and there are maps available to help guide you. Finally, the sun in the afternoon hits the front corner windowed area perfectly allowing a magic place to sit and read in the sunshine! All in all, a perfect holiday home!

"Nice garden and views spoilt by lack of attention to details"

Mosstone is a nice house for a holiday. There are nice pubs close by, particularly the Farmyard Inn. The local butcher sells great produce. The local walks are lovely but are not for the less than abl… More

I was disappointed that this guest was less than happy with Mosstone. I did visit them on the second day of their stay as they were having some difficulty using the wi-fi. I asked if all was well with the cottage and was assured that it was. The question was repeated and received the same response when I called to say farewell and wish them a good journey home on the day before their departure. The main road through the village is a ‘B’ road and traffic is usually light though some farm vehicles can be a little noisy. Through travel by H.G.V.’s is not permitted. Two of the three bedrooms are to the rear of the house and are shielded from traffic noise. The complaint regarding the mattresses apparently concerned one particular mattress. It is the first such complaint received but the complaint is reasonable and the mattress has been replaced. The cottage sleeps 6. Washing, ironing, making up and stripping all the beds does take some time and any cottage owner will charge for this service. Many will add this charge to their rental charge to give an overall inclusive price. I choose to give my guests the option of a slightly lower price if they choose to bring their own linen or of paying a relatively small charge to hire linen. This group chose to bring their own linen, as do most. I do get many parties of 2 or 3 and it would seem unfair that they pay an ‘inclusive’ price allowing for bedding for all beds. Details of what is and what is not provided are always made clear to guests. I have considered the matter of installing a freezer carefully and decided in favour of a fridge with a 4 star freezer compartment largely on environmental grounds. Freezers in holiday cottages are at best underused and spend most of the time empty. If I were to install a freezer it would have to run continuously for 11 months of the year. It has always been my hope that guests would support local, hard pressed shops. I do accept dogs but ask that they are not left in house or garden unsupervised and that they are not allowed to use the garden as a toilet. Owners, thus far, have seen these as reasonable requests in the interest of themselves, future guests, neighbours - and the lawn. It is absolutely wrong to suggest that I request that ‘dogs do not use it (the garden) is any shape or form’.
