    Comfortable cottage with everything that could be needed. Useful stores, P.O, and sandwich/cake/general shop. A cafe And only 100m from the Farmyard Inn where there are lovely meals.

  • "This small cottage was very cosy, warm, and comfortable."

    We had bad weather but the cottage was so lovely to come back to. It was very well equipped even during the pandemic when many self catering cottages only have bare essentials. Beautiful garden and view. Probably a bit small for family with secondary school children but for couples and families with small children I would highly recommend.

  • "Excellent central location for exploring the whole of the Peak District ."

    The cottage was well equipped with everything you would need. Comfortable (new) sofa and chair, very good bed and linen, a super efficient gas fire to add to the central heating (stone cottages can be cold ), an electric shower that works perfectly well (despite what some previous reviews have said) and a lovely back garden which is something of a sun trap. The Farmyard Inn is only 100m away and serves very good food while the Post Office and general store is just a 5 minute walk. There is a local bus service into Bakewell but don’t take any notice of the only timetable displayed in the village as this dates back to 2014! Lovely flat walk along the river (go down the road by the village hall) where we saw grey wagtails and dippers.

  • "Lovely cottage very old beautiful position view from back amazing the only downside is the electric shower have it on hot it burns your skin on a lower heat it turns cold as I am disabled so having a bath is out of the question so I need a first class shower."

  • "The cottage was in a convenient position in the village of Youlgrave itself so shops, pubs, cafe and walks were all within easy reach."

    We particularly liked the private driveway, easy-access keys in the key safe, large very-well equipped kitchen and the smart living room. The log fire looked just like a real fire but was gas so no maintenance issues. We also liked the special central heating thermostat in the kitchen which made adjusting the temperatures in the rooms very easy. The bathroom does need updating, with low hand rails for the bath installing. It needs a new shower so hot and cold can be easily adjusted. Otherwise a wonderful cottage.

  • "In light of the present situation re Covid I felt the cleanliness of the cottage was not what I expected."

    There were cobwebs in various places, the cutlery drawer was grubby. Part of the problem was that all kitchen cupboards and drawers were cluttered- I cannot see how anyone would need 7 baking trays at anytime! There were ornaments on all bedroom furniture which I feel would not have been cleaned up to the standard of Covid requirments. Many drawers all over the cottage were full of bits and pieces- these could have been put in 1 or 2 drawers in the kitchen. There was a hair brush in the bedroom drawer and nail brushes in the kitchen and bathroom. In the bathroom there were 3 bottles of cleaning materials all of which were empty. I appreciate a deep clean would have been carried out at the start of the season but on going cleaning is essential to feel comfortable and confident at such times as these. Sykes had mentioned not to expect the usual availability of book, games etc. I feel that this cottage had not taken this seriously and a good clear out was needed. The sofa in the lounge was evidently fairly new but rather large for the room and not at all comfortable for anyone in my family Having said all that the cottage was in a lovely situation and we had a good week of walking locally and not far afield.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you found the cottage was in a lovely location. We have taken your comments on board. We adhere to detailed guidelines when it comes to cleanliness especially during the current climate. Thank you. Property Owner

  • "It wasn't awful but this place is in desperate need of a proper clean and a bit of money spent on new furniture"

    Many thanks for your comments. I would to assure yourself and my future guests that the property was thoroughly deep cleaned post Covid 19 and professionally cleaned in-between each bookings. Our feedback prior to your stay has been 100%. I would have been more than happy to try and put things right as per your comments made in the visitors book had I been made aware. They have since been rectified. I hope to see you again in the future! Property Owner

  • "Dimberlyne is a very comfortable, well equipped cottage, with very comfortable beds."

    Public footpaths are plentiful, affording good access to the surrounding areas. The village has everything a holidaymaker would need with a choice of three pubs. The views from the kitchen window are wonderful (even in the rain). We had a very pleasant stay, despite dreadful weather.

  • "The cottage was very well equipped and we found the beds very comfortable."

    The lounge chairs and setee were OK but not as comfortable as we would have liked. We could not get the DVD or the fire to work, but not a serious problem. The garden was lovely and the views outstanding and we did enjoy our stay very much.

    Thanks for feedback. We're sorry that the batteries had failed in the remote DVD player. These have now been replaced. It’s a shame you didn’t contact us during your stay as the fire is working fine. Please note that we are always happy for guests to contact us during their stay with any questions.

    The living room is well equipped and the fire really sends some heat out. The kitchen is really well done and it was well equipped with everything you need. Both bedrooms are large and well equipped. The bathroom is nice. The back garden is well stocked with roses, shrubs and flowers and this will look really nice in the coming months. The view from the rear of the property is stunning. The drive is big enough for 2 well sized cars. There are 3 pubs and a British legion all within walking distance. The post office/store is just over 5 minutes walk.... I would highly recommend Dimberlyne Cottage and we are already looking forward to to booking again.

The property

This semi-detached stone house is situated in Youlgreave also spelt Youlgrave depending on which end of the village you enter, at the heart of the Peak District.

With spectacular views of the valleys at the bottom of the rear garden, this is a quaint period property ideal for exploring the surrounding National Park.

On the ground floor is a bespoke modern kitchen with all the facilities you require.

After cooking up a treat at the impressive range cooker, you won't mind doing the washing up with the incredible views of the dale beyond the back of the property.

The kitchen includes a small dining area, and from here you can relax in the pine-floored sitting room and watch a DVD whilst toasting in front of the gas wood burner.

The upper floor provides a double bedroom with a separate dressing area, together with an additional twin bedroom and a family bathroom.

To the rear of the property enjoy the beautifully maintained country cottage garden, with a bench to look into the valley beyond and the River Bradford.

The nearest pub is just a gentle stroll into Youlgrave itself.

You can take a walk along the waterside of the River Bradford or just a few miles further on you can sample the famous puddings in nearby Bakewell.

Further afield is all the beauty that the Peak District National Park has to offer.

Cycle the district on one of the many tailored routes, follow the walking trails from village to village or if you begin to miss the city life, you’re only a 20-mile drive from Sheffield.

Dimberlyne Cottage is a charming spot by the River Bradford, ideal for an authentic break in the Peak District.
