“Excellent accommodation, great location.”
Reviewed March 21, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay in the self catering "Barn at the Old Bakery". Well equipped and comfortable the accommodation is in a good central location in Youlgreave. The hosts Ken and Carol send out a very comprehensive confirmation email detailing all that is provided for you including tea,coffee, biscuits and a bottle of wine on arrival as well as info re the local area. One of the best weve stayed in. We would recommend and would return. Cannot fault at all.

Would also recommend The Farmyard Inn in Youlgeave for their meals and ambience.

“Unfinished business - in the bag!”
Reviewed March 2, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Our second visit to The Barn at the Old Bakery was just as lovely as the first time. Nice to see the standards are still high. Everything you need for a home-from-home stay. Ken and Carole are lovely hosts and happy to leave you to it or advise on local amenities/walks etc., really nice people. They provide everything you need, from iron/ironing board, hairdryer, washing up stuff, towels, shower gel, loo roll etc. tea, coffee, milk and a welcoming bottle of wine (thank you!), even some books on local walks and an OS map. There are plenty of books and DVDs if you chose to just veg out in the evenings too.
There are 3 pubs in the village but the best is the Farmyard Inn for atmosphere and food, be sure to book a table though. It's only a couple of minutes walk from The Barn (turn righ out of the driveway and follow the main road). The locals are very friendly and they don't mind you going in in your walking gear (as long as your boots aren't too muddy).
I'm glad we found The Barn and would definitely stay here again if we visit Youlgreave. I wish it was my place!!

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review of your second stay at The Barn @ The Old Bakery, it is much appreciated. Firstly we thank you for leaving our property in a clean and tidy state, it was a pleasure to have you staying again. We have tried, in developing the property, to imagine what we would like or need as guests staying there, so we are pleased to read that we are meeting expectations of our guests.
We are pleased to read that you continued to explore further the area on foot, from the door. The Barn @ The Old Bakery is a great place to use as a base to venture into the White Peak area of the Peak District Bational Park.
We are blessed with two shops and three pubs within the village all offering something for our guests, within a few minutes walk of the property.
We hope that you will return, in the future to explore further.

“Beautiful Accommodation”
Reviewed February 28, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The accommodation is well well equipped with everything you could possibly need! It was also spotlessly clean and in a brilliant location for walking and visiting sites, like Bakewell, Matlock and Eyam. I would highly recommend and would without a doubt visit again! Thank you for a fantastic holiday.

We are pleased to read that the accommodation lived up to your requirements. We have tried to ensure that The Barn @ The Old Bakery provides a 'home from home' experience for our guests. As you rightly point out the property provides an ideal base to explore the local towns, yet equally provides a great base to walk from the door of the property into the wonderful Peak District National Park.
We hope to see you again.

“Perfect! Clean, cosy, comfortable and a great location for walking.”
Reviewed February 26, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Absolutely fantastic week staying at the The Barn @ The Old Bakery. The flat was so nice and cosy, spotlessly clean and in a lovely location for some great walks. Ken and Carol were greats hosts, very helpful and attentive. We had a fantastic time exploring the beautiful Peak District and definitely want to come back and explore some more! The Barn is in a great location for walks straight out the door, and close to Bakewell to get your fix of tasty tarts!

Would recommend to anyone - could not have asked for more from a holiday apartment.

“Superlative- Great Value!”
Reviewed January 15, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

What more can you say other than 'superlative'!
Our stay was greatly enhanced by the wonderful friendliness of the next door butcher.
We very rarely eat meat but are not 100% vegetarian. We can highly recommend his home cured bacon (this was a stand out for us as we hadn't touched bacon for well over
a year). We also enjoyed his Cumberland sausages and his pork pies.
Would love to return for longer!

“A Great Stay”
Reviewed December 16, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Thank you to Ken and Carol, hosts at the The Old Bakery Youlgreave, who made our stay in The Barn @ The Old Bakery so pleasant. The accommodation is first class, the scenery beautiful and Youlgreave as a base is perfectly situated for visiting this part of the Peak District. The Barn is clean, cosy and warm and has every luxury you would wish for. Ken and Carol go out of their way to make you feel welcome and are there to give advice on the area if needed. Thank you for a wonderful stay, we will be back and have no hesitation in highly recommending both The Old Bakery and The Barn @ The Old Bakery to everyone. Ian and Sonya, Northamptonshire.
