“Cottage and area the best we have found in the Peaks”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Our second stay here, first time a week of sunshine, second a week if rain but we still loved it just as much. The cottage is very comfortable, everything we needed was there and the bath superb after a long day walking in the rain. Penny has put in those extra special touches and her cakes are superb. Youlgreave must be be the nicest position to stay in the Peak District, a lovely peaceful village.

It is always a pleasure having you to stay. It was a shame the weather was not as kind to you this time but maybe next year!

“Beautifully converted barn in lovely countryside”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Old Vicarage Barn, in the grounds of the owners' house, is in an excellent position in the High Street in Youlgreave village - easy walking to 3 pubs for evening meals (we recommend The Farmyard - booking essential), a butchers/bakers and a post office (both of which sell some groceries etc). The countryside all around is ideal for walking (several books of walks and OS map at the barn), and well placed for visiting many stately homes, mills, mines and museums. The Barn is really well equipped as a home-from-home, the flagstone floor with underfloor heating being one example of how a conversion can be practical but very comfortable. There is a small sunny patio next to the barn, and an area at the end of the owners' garden for guests to enjoy the countryside views. Mark and Penny were friendly and helpful hosts (fresh eggs and Penny's yummy chocolate cake were thoughtful welcoming gifts) - we definitely recommend staying here.

“Relaxing stay”
Reviewed 25 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Came here for a four night break. Cottage has everything you could need, and more! Penny kindly left a chocolate cake and eggs, and there are 'bits' there to help you out -, washing up liquid, cling film, wash powder etc - things you forget to take with you, but don't want to have to buy ! Lovely bathroom - endless hot water for long soaks in the bath. Highly recommended cottage - would definitely stay again.
