"Superb accommodation in excellent location"

A very well equipped, cosy & spotlessly clean 'barn'. Great location for walks from the front door. Butchers, grocers & village pubs close by. Nice touch was wine, tea, coffee, milk & shortbread on arrival. Helpful owners & loads of local information in the barn to plan your day. Just wish we could have stayed longer!

Thank you for your review, it is much appreciated. We are pleased to read that you found The Barn @ The Old Bakery met with your expectation. The accommodation is well placed to explore the White peaks and the wider Peak District National Park. The village is blessed with three good pubs all serving home cooked food and great ales. We also have a well stocked butchers and grocer/Post Office within 20metres of The Barn. We hope you are able to return to continue your exploration of this beautiful area.

"Fantastic accommodation"

Stayed here for my birthday weekend Cannot recommend this converted barn highly enough. It is superb as a base for walking in the local area and it had everything you wished for regards a supply of books DVDs suggested walks and even a map. We ate in the Farmyard Inn recommended by Ken on Saturday night and enjoyed it so much we returned on Sunday night again ! We will definitely be re-booking for a longer stay PS.Thanks for the wine it was very much appreciated

Thank you for your review, it is much appreciated. As you recognised, The Barn @ The Old Bakery accommodation offers "walking from the door" to explore the White Peak National Park. We hope that our guests are able to quickly relax and embrace this beautiful area. We look forward to seeing you again.

Thank you for your review, it is much appreciated. The Barn @ THe Old Bakery is situated in the heart of the village, offering guests walking from the door, or the opportunity to explore the local attractions.

"First class accommodation."

Very clean and tidy apartment with the best of fittings and everything you could want for a good holiday. It was warm and comfortable and the owners even provided tea, coffee, milk, biscuits and wine for our arrival. We would recommend this to anybody. Excellent. Chris and Elaine Steer.

Thank you for your review, it is much appreciated. We are pleased that you enjoyed the hospitality goods, we think that it is important to welcome our guests and make them feel "at home", from the start of their stay in The a barn @ The Old Bakery. We were only sorry that the weather wasn't the best for you to see some of the spectacular views, although we understand that this did not deter you from getting around to see some of the sights around the Peak District.. We hope that you will return, to continue your exploration of the National Park.

"Really a hidden gem!!!"

The Barn@The Old Bakery is an ideal location to explore The Peak District! We are so glad we found this little gem in the picturesque village of Youlgrave. The owners are very helpful and friendly and gave us some very useful information. The property itself is clean and well equipped. It felt like home. We'll certainly be back! And we have already informed some friends. Rudy and Malou (Gent - Belgium)

Thank you for your review, it is much appreciated. We are really pleased to read that you found the accommodation to your liking and met your high standards. We endeavour to ensure our guests have a full knowledge and satisfying experience of the Peak District National Park. We look forward to welcoming again, in the future.

"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.

"Facilities, comfort and cleanliness first rate."

The Barn at the Old Bakery was everything Ken and Carol said it would be. A great base to explore from. The village of Youlgrave was quaint, set in wonderful countryside. The barn was really comfortable with all the home comforts you could want.

Thank you for your review. We aim to provide a "home from home" feeling for our guests. We are pleased to hear that you found The Barn @ The Old Bakery a great base to explore the Peak District National Park.
