“Brilliant”
Reviewed 3 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Perfect cottage. Ideal for walking, you truly do not need to use the car if you do not want to. The roof terrace was perfect with beautiful views. We all enjoyed the river, perfect for cooling tired feet and legs. We only ate at the george hotel which was fab, good food, all genuinely home cooked and perfect if you fancied something to eat after a long walk; the Farmyard Inn does not open until tea time and was always packed never a seat in the garden. The walk up and down to the cottage is not for the faint hearted, it was hard going especially with luggage. But we had a fab stay the weather was kind and walked miles and went home for a rest!!!!! Had a Bakewell Tart from the Bakewell Tart shop which was ok. Bakewell cafe's are over priced, try Relish, tucked away but lovely food and extremely friendly staff. Recommend a visit to Ashbourne and buying Bakewell Tart from the deli near waitress, much nicer.

Liked best: The Roof Terrace
Liked least: The Bed - because we have to have memory foam. This is just our opinion and should not detract from the overall stay.

“Perfect cottage Perfect views”
Reviewed 24 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Thoroughly enjoyable stay at this lovely cottage. Nice walks, and pubs right on the doorstep. Good location for visiting Bakewell, Chesterfield and Chatsworth House. The Farmyard Inn is great for hospitality and lovely food, nice beer garden. The only little draw back is taking your luggage down the steep hill as no parking with the cottage, having said that it keeps you fit!

Lovely friendly lady living next door.

Hope to return soon.

“Great location for walking from the door”
Reviewed 21 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Booked this cottage for a short break with hubby and dogs. What we liked about it was the position close to Bradford dale and being able to walk from the cottage. It was spotlessly clean on arrival with everything you could want for a break in the dales. It's not easy getting to the cottage from the road so may be an issue for some. However it's walking distance to a great pub (the farmyard inn) where we ate on 3 out of 4 nights. Owners very accommodating and it was a smooth booking process. Lovely raised sitting out area looking over the dale.

“Excellent cottage”
Reviewed 6 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The cottage is in a great location with nice views over the dale. Youlgreve is central to areas where we did many walks over the week.
The cottage was as it was advertised, and very comfortable for 2 people.
Hard to get the big bags up the spiral staircase, so we left them downstairs No big issue as there was plenty of room for them in the lounge area.

“Great little cottage in a beautiful spot”
Reviewed 20 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed at Overdale for a week in June, with our 5 month old baby and a dog! The cottage is perfect, very clean, had everything we needed, and best of all the location was fantastic. It is a great spot to visit nearby villages/towns and explore the Peak Districts. There is a beautiful little river just a short walk from the cottage too (which the dog loved!). The Farmyard Inn is a great pub, great food, and is dog friendly too - definitely worth a visit! Phil & Sue were very helpful too - highly recommend.

“A Peak District Gem”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

person found this review helpful

This cottage is a gem if you need to drop out of the rat race and relax. It's full of character, very well presented. Situated in the beautiful Derbyshire village on the slopes of river Bradford dale. The cottage is well equipped and very clean. We absolutely loved the view from the roof sun terrace of Bradford dale. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and can't recommend it enough.
