Cottage
The Barn at The Old Bakery was originally one of the oldest cottages in the pretty Derbyshire Dales village of Youlgreave, within Derbyshire's Peak District National Park. The Barn is accessed from a courtyard, where there is a private parking space, and has charming views of the spectacular countryside. Ascending the 13 oak steps, you are taken onto a sunlit balcony, with a table and chairs to enjoy breakfast or a relaxing glass of wine after your days activity. Inside the property, the comfortable spacious lounge area has two sofas, and an easy chair. In the newly fitted kitchen there is an induction hob and an electric fan oven, together with a microwave, fridge and washing machine. All the utensils and crockery are provided. For indoor dining there is a table and four chairs.

For indoor dining there is a table and four chairs. For your entertainment there is a large TV with freeview and an extensive DVD collection is available for guests use. A light and airy dual aspect bedroom at the opposite end of the property boasts a king sized double bed and a Velux window through which you can fall asleep watching the starry night sky. The bedroom and lounge are joined by a hallway with plenty of storage space for your belongings. The bathroom with bath and overhead shower leads off the hallway. The Barn is centrally heated throughout, making it warm and cosy even if the weather outside is cold. The property has a private balcony where you can sit and enjoy a glass of something refreshing and watch the world go by on those sunny afternoons and evenings. There is free secure parking next to the cottage. The Barn is a fabulous place to use as your base for a walking holiday, (simple walking guides are provided), in the Peak District or for cycling or sight seeing across the whole wondrous area that makes up the unique White Peak. There are three village pubs in Youlgrave, all serving good quality home cooked meals. The Village Shop sells everything you might need or have forgotten to bring with you! The village Post Office, also doubles as a grocery store and newsagent. Peak Feast specialises in home baked cakes and vegetarian savory meals. The popular tourist town of Bakewell with its famous pudding and tarts is just three miles away. An hourly bus service runs from the village to Bakewell, from which there are further buses to Sheffield, Chesterfield, Buxton, Castleton and Chatsworth House. The town of Matlock, which offers fantastic sight seeing via the Heights of Abraham's cable car, is 8 miles away. Chatsworth House is within walking distance as is Haddon Hall. Both are well worth a visit.More
