About the neighbourhood
Vallon cottage is located in Youlgrave, a pretty village of limestone cottages nestled between the stunning Bradford and Lathkill Dales in Derbyshire. Its medieval church is one of the biggest in the region and the village also has its own water supply. Parking is on the road outside where there is ample parking for two cars, or in the small village car park just at the top of the road. There are three local pubs, two shops, cafe and a wildlife garden. Three long-distance hiking paths pass through the village, the Alternative Pennine Way, the Limestone Way and the White Peak Way. Nearby stately homes include Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall and there are adventure parks, areas of geological interest, caves and many outdoor activities within walking distance or a short car journey.

How to get there
The closest airports are either East Midlands or Manchester Airport. There is a train from Manchester to Buxton and then it would be a taxi from there. Really a car would be best as although there is a bus service to Bakewell and Matlock that's about all there is. Matlock is the closest railway station and again then it would be a taxi from there to Youlgrave.
