  • "What a beautiful, well-equipped cottage in a lovely part of the world."

    Very comfortable and moments walk from shops and pubs. Couldn’t fault it.

  • "We had another wonderful long weekend in the Peaks."

    Thank you! The cottage was lovely, the kitchen was extremely well equipped and even had picnic utensils, boxes, plates etc. Really thoughtful. The beds were very comfortable and the house was warm and cosy. The only downside was I did hoover on arrival as there were still crumbs under the table and mud in the back room and kitchen. But otherwise a wonderful stay!

    Really sorry to hear that the cottage hadn’t been cleaned properly before you came. We’ll certainly take this up with the company that does the changeovers. Thank you for drawing it to our attention. We’re very glad to hear that that you still enjoyed your stay at Hunters Cottage and found it comfortable and well-equipped. Best wishes, Richard and Marian Property Owner

  • "Excellent cottage, fully stocked kitchen equipment, comfy beds."

    The village is lovely - lots of pub and lovely shops/cafes for food

    Delighted you enjoyed your stay. We love the village too. Do come again! Richard and Marian Property Owner

  • "What a lovely property."

    We really appreciated how well stocked it was and how comfortable. Excellent location, although there is no designated parking we didn't struggle to find some. We've been to lots of pet friendly properties in the past but this one was probably the best kitted out, with dog treats, spare bowls and blankets for the sofas. We had great meals nearby at the Fountain Bakery and the Farmyard pub.

    Great to hear you liked the cottage and enjoyed your stay there, Sounds as if the dog did too! Thank you for your positive feedback - much appreciated. Property Owner

    Very well equipped, in a great location and lovely walks close by. Everything you need. We would love to come back in the summer.

    So glad you all enjoyed your stay at the cottage and you’d be very welcome back in the summer. The weather can only get better! Property Owner

  • "Hunters Cottage is absolutely beautiful and is furnished to the highest standard."

    It is so well equipped so it is the perfect home from home. It is so comfortable and the location is absolutely perfect. Richard was so helpful in the run up to our stay and is a great host. The 3 local pubs serve lovely food, there are local shops and everything you need so you don't actually need to leave the village. We did some of the local walks and the area is just stunning. I really cannot recommend it enough. We had a fabulous stay. Thank you for being amazing and we will definately be back!!

    We are delighted that you enjoyed spending Christmas at Hunters Cottage and we deeply appreciate your feedback. We would like to wish you and your family a very happy New Year and we look forward to welcoming you back. With our best wishes, Richard and Marian Property Owner

  • "Thank you for a lovely stay."

    The cottage was very well equipped, comfortable and cosy and the hosts were very accommodating. It was a lovely weekend. We went for a 3 hour loop walk straight from the house and had a great evening in the Farmyard Inn on the Saturday. Would really recommend this property. Equally the village has a lot to offer, 3 pubs, a bakery, deli/shop, plus a post office and another cafe. All this and beautiful countryside on your doorstep!!!

    Thank you very much for your positive feedback. We’re so glad you enjoyed your weekend in Youlgrave and that you found the cottage a cosy, comfortable and convenient place to stay. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is lovely, and its location within the Main Street of the village was so handy, a 10 second walk to the shop, bakery, any of the three pubs."

    I managed to park the car within 100meters of the cottage each day too. Our morning walk in the valley to the Youlgreave books was blissful. My only negative is there is no sound proofing with next door, so at times it felt like they were in our house, not sure if they were renters too or local so appreciate it may or may not be a regular occurrence. There didn’t seem to be any bin bags which is no biggie as the village shop was 10 seconds walk away but blue recycling bin in the shed, obviously hadn’t been put out the week before us (as requested on the notice) so the bin was over flowing before we got there with mouse droppings in it. Again not something that can be helped. There didn’t seem to be any notice of what is recyclable or not in Derbyshire and what to do on check out apart from with the key. We striped the beds and put the used towels in the bathroom not a biggy just hope we did what they wanted. Over all it was a fantastic week and the cottage was really lovely just minor points which I am not sure the owners would have any control off but I thought worth mentioning.

    We are very glad you enjoyed your stay at Hunters Cottage. Thank you very much for bringing these points to our attention. We are sorry if noise from the adjoining property detracted from your stay. We would like to assure you that following your comments we are exploring ways to manage and minimise this in the near future. We have also been in touch with the changeover team about the lack of bin bags and rubbish removal, and apologise that this was not to the standard we expect. Property Owner

  • "What a perfect cottage in a perfect village in a perfect location!"

    Can't wait to come back which we definitely will and will recommend to anyone who wishes to visit the area. We were 6 adults, a baby and a dog and it worked just fine. Spotlessly clean, cosy, a home from home and definitely not your standard basic holiday let, more than well equipped. The village is well served with pubs, bakeries, stores and cafes and loads of walks you can do from the village. Don't hesitate to book!

    We’re delighted that you enjoyed your stay so much and thank you for your generous feedback. We look forward to welcoming you back. Sending you our best wishes, Marian and Richard Property Owner

The property

Hunters Cottage is a well-presented, terraced cottage nestled in the heart of the village of Youlgreave, Derbyshire.

Boasting a homely feel with characterful touches and ideal for a walking, cycling or hiking holiday, Hunters Cottage welcomes families and couples for a heart-warming stay in the Peak District.

Enter into the sitting room and you’ll immediately be drawn to the inglenook fireplace housing a woodburning stove, a welcome addition during those colder months.

Original flagstone flooring leads to the kitchen, equipped with a host of appliances, including a large electric oven and gas hob set within the chimney breast.

Enjoy mealtimes at the dining table, or sit in the little conservatory which is a real suntrap.

Venture upstairs to find three bedrooms, including two king-size rooms and a double room.

Start the day with a bath or shower in the family bathroom before making your way to the enclosed garden and pondering on the day ahead.

Within a moment’s stroll are several pubs where you can enjoy a selection of beverages and there’s a local village store for grabbing fresh ingredients.

Just over three miles away is the fascinating town of Bakewell, offering a wonderful day out with several independent shops selling local goods and crafts, including the famous Original Bakewell Pudding Shop, plus several restaurants to sample.

Avid walkers can spend their time exploring the many local routes, such as Lathkill Dale and the Limestone Way, which are directly accessible from the village.

Alternatively, you can drive to Castleton, the starting point for Mam Tor, a three-mile trail that is rewarded with glorious vistas of the Edale Valley or choose the 13-mile Tissington Trail if cycling is more your sport of choice.

Hunters Cottage is well-placed for those looking to experience the wonders of the Peak District National Park.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
