Lower Ivy cottage is a lovely, traditional limestone cottage in a super position on the edge of Youlgreave with wonderful views from every window over Bradford Dale. Dating from the 18th century the cottage has been fully renovated to provide modern facilities whilst retaining all its character including quarry tiled and slate floors, mellow pine dresser, log burning stove and lots of other country features.

Bradford Dale with its trout pools is beautiful and as you wander along the footpath you will see kingfishers, herons and dippers playing in the river as it splashes down the valley. Up in the centre of Youlgreave you will realise that this is a 'real' village with high quality butchers and general store, post office and three pubs doing lovely food and drinks.The village has an attractive Georgian main street and one of the finest 15th centuary churches in Derbyshire.

Walks fan out from the cottage in every direction over the Peak District hills but when your feet get tired visit nearby Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Bakewell with its 'puddings' and Matlock Bath in its breathtaking gorge. For the kids there is everything from water rafting, go-karting, cable car daring, steam train riding, cavern exploring and castle storming.

The Peak District National Park region

Derbyshire is in the centre of the country and a brilliant place for a countryside holiday with its beautiful landscape that inspired Britain's first National Park. The scenery is fantastic with picturesque villages, sparkling rivers in lovely valleys and high moorland areas where you will feel 'on top of the world'. The views over wave after wave of Peak District hills are just incredible !

Walkers will find lots of lovely walks. The trails out across the 'Peaks' are great for cycling. There is super heritage with numerous stately homes to explore. And numerous holiday attractions can be found in and around the 'Peak' as well as great days out at nearby Alton Towers or Robin Hood's Sherwood Forest .

On less strenuous days you might fancy at bit of shopping. The big shopping centres of Derby, Sheffield, Nottingham and Manchester are easy to get to. Local towns like Ashbourne, Bakewell and Buxton have lots of individual country town shops. Take home a bargain from one of the many factory outlets.

When you are out and about remember that there are many classy restaurants in the county. Country pubs serving super food and real ale abound. You might just fancy a picnic from one of the little deli's - every town has got one. There is also a lot to be said for a super evening takeaway in the cottage. Food and drink to suit every taste and budget !

Finally lets mention a few local secrets. Derbyshire's famous well dressings must be seen. Ashbourne's Royal Shrovetide Football is amazing. Majestic Chatsworth House is the star of all the stately homes. Carsington Water's wild water sports are a must. Bakewell's famous Monday market is well worth a visit. Matlock Bath's 'little Switzerland' gorge and Heights of Abraham cable cars can be heart stopping! Buxton's Opera House and the echo in the Devonshire Dome are incredible.

But the best thing of all about Derbyshire is that it is a fairly small place and everything is very accessible. There is something within easy reach to fill every day of your holiday ! Please give us a call if you are still stuck for ideas. Hope you come back next year to finish the experience !!

Youlgreave

There is an incredible variety of things to do and see in Derbyshire and the Peak District to fill every day of your holiday.

People who love heritage will be enthralled by the Derwent Valley World Heritage Corridor and the numerous stately homes such as Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Hardwick Hall and the time capsule of Calke Abbey. Walks by the old Cromford and Whaley Bridge Canals are great and a visit to Creswell Crags is a must.

There are lovely walks all over the county but try climbing Mam Torr as the para-gliders float by, explore the Derwent 'Dambuster' Dams, start the Pennine Way in wild Edale, wander down peaceful Dove Dale, Manifold Dale, Monsal Dale or Lathkill Dale. And don't forget the breathtaking views from Calver Edge!

Holiday attractions abound with Carsington Water, the Peak, Midland and Ecclesbourne steam railways, the Heights of Abraham cable cars, Castleton's Blue John Caverns, the National Tramway Museum, the Chestnut Owl and Otter Sanctuary and even nearby Alton Towers and Robin Hood's Sherwood Forest.

For active days out it's got to be the water sports at Carsington, cycling along the High Peak and other trails, climbing the cliffs or canoeing the river in Matlock Bath, fishing the numerous rivers, playing a round of golf at one of the lovely courses, gliding at Gt. Hucklow or even go-carting in Buxton or Chesterfield.

Special events happen throughout the year so there is always something exciting happening. Matlock's Boxing Day raft race is an amazing spectacle. Royal Shrovetide Football in Ashbourne is an incredible event. All the famous village well dressings are beautiful. Buxton's opera season is superb. Chatsworth's Country Fair draws crowds from far and wide. Bonsall's hen racing is unique and Fenny Bentley's toe wrestling is bizarre. The list goes on and on!

If you fancy a night out there are night clubs in Chesterfield and Derby, theatres in Buxton, Chesterfield and Derby, multi-plex cinemas in Chesterfield and Derby and lovely little local cinemas in Belper and WIrksworth. But most people will just like to try one of the numerous restaurants and pubs catering for every taste and budget.

Our favourite restaurants include the Devonshire Arms in Beeley, Stones' little riverside bistro in Matlock, Simply Thai in Buxton, Fellicinis' Italian in Bakewell, Le Mistral in Wirksworth, Rowley's bistro in Baslow, the Plough in Brackenfield and, for a very special occasion, fine dining at Hassop Hall. Don't forget to have a Bakewell Pudding before you leave!!
