    “This was our third time at River cottage, we love the peace and tranquility.”

    It is tucked away and the steep hill never bothered us, it’s worth it when you get to the cottage! Well equipped and very warm and cosy, loved the log burner. The views from the garden are beautiful. It needs a lick of paint in places but it did not bother us. We will return again, thanks to the owners who are very helpful.

The property

A lovely, traditional, stone-built property, River Cottage is the gable end of a row of quaint cottages situated on a steep hillside in the pretty village of Youlgreave, 4 miles from Bakewell.

The cottage is full of charm and character with a delightful sitting room and a mature garden area with lovely views of the surrounding countryside.

Due to the exceptional location of this cottage, the only noise that you will hear is the sound of the river.

A footpath leads from the cottage down to the Bradford Dale valley bottom where there are lovely riverside walks and numerous picnic spots, while Youlgreave's old pubs and magnificent church are just a short stroll away.

An ideal romantic retreat from which to explore the beauty of the surrounding National Park, Bakewell, with its regular market, Matlock and the unmissable Chatsworth House.

Surrounded by stunning countryside, the Historic village of Youlgreave winds its way along a narrow limestone shelf, situated between two of the area's loveliest valleys - Lathkill Dale to the north and Bradford Dale to the south. Once the centre of Derbyshire's lead-mining industry, this charming village now plays home to three pubs, all serving Home Cooked food, two shops (one with a Post Office) and a delightful medieval church. The attractive market town of Bakewell is nearby and offers a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants, as well as a weekly local market. With the whole of the Peak District National Park on the doorstep, many stately homes to visit including Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall, Kedleston Hall, Clake Abbey offering a great day out.
