  • “The location was beautiful and the ...”

    The location was beautiful and the Cowshed was lovely. The only drawback is the access road leading to the property.

    The location was beautiful and the Cowshed was lovely. The only drawback is the access road leading to the property. Once you leave the road onto the access track the standard of the track is appalling (very deep and wide potholes on a single track road) and is in serious need of some major repair. This is a shame as it would be the only reason for not considering a revisit to the Cowshed.

About the location


Youlgreave, 1 mile; Bakewell 3 miles; Matlock 7.5 miles; Buxton 16 miles.

Alport is nestled in some of Derbyshire's most beautiful countryside, a small hamlet scattered with farms and cottages. Close by, the ancient village of Youlgreave was once the centre of Derbyshire's lead-mining industry, winding its way along a narrow limestone shelf situated between two of the area's loveliest valleys, Lathkill Dale and Bradford Dale. Now you can grab a bite to eat in one if the village’s three pubs, there are two shops, one with a Post Office, and a delightful medieval church. Nearby, the attractive market town of Bakewell has a wonderful collection of pubs, restaurants, and shops to peruse, as well as a frequent local market. There are many walking opportunities on the doorstep of Alport, great for exploring the beauty of the Peak District National Park. Discover the stately beauty of Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall, or unleash your wild side at Alton Towers! Alport is a wonderful base for exploring Derbyshire, all year round.
