“Lovely cottage in a great location”
Reviewed September 14, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We spent a week in this comfortable and well equipped cottage. The Barn @ The Old Bakery has been thoughtfully converted and is just right for 2 people. It is well located for exploring the Peak District and Derbyshire, very close to Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Bakewell and Buxton and a variety of other lovely places! It has been mentioned that the access is narrow for cars, and it is, but ours is quite wide and we managed to get in and out every day with no problems - just take it slowly!! Wi-fi can be a bit temperamental but in our case got better as the week went on.
Ken and Carol who live just next door are very friendly and accommodating and leave a welcome pack which includes a very welcome bottle of wine - just what you need after a long journey!

The Barn @ The Old Bakery proves to be a perfect place to use as a base to explore the beautiful Peak District National Park.

We hope that you will return to continue exploring the area.

“Lovely accomodation that is excellently equipped in a beautiful village!”
Reviewed August 17, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The cottage is lovely with everything you could possibly need, the kitchen being well equipped and all the other things that make a stay away like being at home. It was spotlessly clean, important for us as we stayed with our 9 month old child and was well positioned in the village. The provision of wine and milk is a great touch and Ken and Carol are lovely, friendly and helpful. The butchers next door is great and very handy and the village is beautiful with some lovely walks. Would definitely recommend.

“Perfect place in an ideal location”
Reviewed August 10, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The Barn at the Old Bakery is a lovely, very clean, comfortable self-catering flat with all the facilities you need for a relaxing break. It is situated in a very quiet, friendly village, close to Bakewell, Chatsworth etc., and the village of Youlgrave has a nice selection of pubs and small shops - discovered the cake shop in the centre on our last day! Definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone (assuming you are ok with an outside staircase up). Lovely views from the dormer windows over the sheep fields.

We are pleased to read that you enjoyed staying at The Barn @ The Old Bakery. We have tried to equip the property with all the facilities and equipment that we think is needed.
We are very fortunate to have two good shops and a bakery in the village, as well as 3 pubs all producing good quality home cooked food: all within 1 minutes walk of our property. The village is extremely friendly.
Our proximity to Bakewell, Haddon Hall and Chatsworth House offer guests excellent days out, as you discovered. Equally you can walk or cycle from the door to explore the beautiful Peak District National Park.
We hope to see you again when you continue your explorations.

“Perfect :)”
Reviewed July 30, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a lovely stay at the Barn for our 1st anniversary and wish we could have stayed longer. The Barn was so homely and had absolutely everything we needed for a comfortable stay, it was spotlessly clean and prettily decorated. My husband asked Ken and Carol to arrange some flowers for me as a surprise on our arrival on his behalf which they kindly did and as all the reviews state it seems like nothing is too much trouble. Youlgreave is within easy reach of a variety of activities which suit all ages and there are beautiful walks right on the doorstep of The Barn. The food in the Farmyard Inn was the best by far but the hospitality in all the pubs in the village could not be faulted. We'd definately stay again! X

“A Great Holiday Experience”
Reviewed June 22, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We really enjoyed our week in the Peaks at this pretty little cottage which sits just behind the main street in the quiet village in Youlgreave. Ideally located in a peaceful spot with immediate access to the butcher and the baker and the Post Office too. It also has 3 pub restaurants in the village and the furthest of these is only a 3 minute walk away! The cottage was clean, comfortable and well presented with all facilities you are likely to require. It is also very close to lots of great walking country. Outside of Youlgreave we particularly liked the small town of Bakewell which is just a few miles up the road and also the village of Eyam. Be aware that parking outside the cottage means negotiating a narrow passage that takes a bit of practice and that if you are looking for a strong wi-fi signal you may be disappointed, although we had friends staying in a cottage just over the road and their signal was fine so it might just be about luck. The owners, Ken and Carol, are both very hospitable and left us a very pleasant welcome package which was a nice touch. We would definitely use this cottage again when we are next in this area.

We were pleased to read that you found The Barn @ The Old Bakery to your liking. We have tried to provide facilities which we ourselves would be happy with.
We are blessed within the village with great facilities for guests, as you have stated three good pubs within 3 minutes walk from our property. The butcher and post office also compliment those wishing to totally self cater in our property. The walking in the immediate area is fantastic and offers stunning scenery.
We hope to see you again so that you can continue your exploration of the Peak District National Park.
