From only £388 - £602 per week
New for summer 2018. A really charming Derbyshire cottage in the picturesque Peak District village of Youlgreave.
Sleeps: 4 (2 bedrooms) | Change over day: Friday
Come and spend Christmas at Rose Cottage! Full week £602. Any four nights 22- 29th December £430 plus booking fee.
Rose Cottage is absolutely superb. As a traditional Derbyshire Cottage in the midst of the lovely village of Youlgreave it is a brilliant base from which to explore the 'Peaks'. The lounge is charming with its log burning stove. The well fitted dining kitchen is great if you like cooking. The bedrooms are perhaps the best of all with their superb beds, crisp linen and fluffy towels.
Youlgreave is just as brilliant. It's a 'real' village with a lovely church, proper village stores and three great pubs all just a stagger away. They all do good food and one even sells 'take away' fish and chips. But don't indulge too much because a stroll down Bradford Dale, spotting the kingfishers and dippers in the river, and all the other incredible walks around the village, will beckon in the morning.
When you are not 'outward-bound' there are innumerable other things to do and see. Wonderful Chatsworth House, lovely Haddon Hall and super Bakewell are only 5 minutes drive away. Or perhaps make it a day out cycling along the High Peak Trail, splashing about in Carsington Water, riding Peak Rail's steam trains, storming Peveril Castle or getting your nemesis on Nemesis at Alton Towers.
A delightful lounge with Chesterfield sofa, comfy chairs, glowing log burning stove, T.V., DVD, CD, and WiFi. A quality, well equipped dining kitchen with drop leaf table and chairs, hob, oven, microwave, fridge-freezer and automatic washer/dryer. A very attractive double bedroom with beautiful furnishings including a brass bedstead. A small twin bedroom. A bathroom with bath/shower over and W.C.
Linen and towels are provided. Central heating, power and an initial supply of fuel for the stove are included. A cot and high chair can be requested. There is a lovely garden with furniture about 10 yds from the back door across the shared rear yard. Parking is available on the road outside the cottage and on the other quiet lanes in the village. One pet is allowed by arrangement and must be kept on a lead in the yard/garden. Smoking is not permitted. Access for people with disabilities may be difficult.
Weekly bookings are normally Friday to Friday but short breaks are available throughout the year excluding Xmas & New Year. Bookings for Christmas and New Year are from Tuesday to Tuesday.
Nearest pub - Youlgreave 100yds. Nearest village shop - Youlgreave 100yds. Nearest supermarket - Bakewell 3 miles.

"Rugby world cup semi-finals weekend ! Arrived late Friday night in heavy rain. Rose cottage is a great place to batten down the hatches, spark up the log burner and uncork a bottle. Wanted to show family the Peak District. Ambitions for Lathkill Dale, Froggatt Edge and Mam Tor. Back for Homity pie and treacle tart from Peak Feast. Excellent pint at The Farmyard Inn. Great dinner at The Bulls Head. Walked Curbar Edge/Froggatt Edge, beautiful sunny day. Breathtaking views."

"Lovely village and lovely Rose cottage. Perfectly located and beautifully decorated and organised. Absolutely love the interior design ! We enjoyed 3 lovely days walking and our black Labrador Alfie had a wonderful time-including lying in front of the woodburner to sleep off the long walks. We would recommend the Farmyard Inn-really welcoming and dog friendly, not to mention the really good food. We also recommend the Bulls Head who made us very welcome too. Thank you for a great few days."

"Bye bye Youlgreave again. 7th or 8th time to the ever wonderful, friendly village of Youlgreave. A beautiful village and friendly locals. Visited all 3 pubs, the friendly Bull, the friendly Farmyard and ate well in both, and the George. Loved Rose Cottage. the phrase that springs to mind is small but perfectly formed. Walking apart (all beautiful, inquisitive sheep,busy wildlife and more friendly people) we both like Cromford, which, shopping mill apart, is lovely. Scarthin books is a destination for all book lovers, the canal walk(stroll) is really interesting. Youlgreave never fails. Live long and prosper!"

"Fabulous cottage. Loved the interior design and very warm and welcoming. Fabulous weather and fabulous walks. We drove to Dove Dale and walked to Ilam (parked at Mill dale) - very beautiful, and walked from the cottage to Bakewell. Spent a very long time in the second hand book shop, ate Bakewell pudding and custard and walked back. Loved the Farmyard Inn. It really have been a lovely and relaxing break. To be continued …. (hopefully)."

"We enjoyed four excellent days at Rose Cottage with unseasonably warm and dry weather for February. Poppy (golden retriever) had a great time on the long walks and found plenty of water to splash around in and sheep muck to roll in! As others have said the food and beer in the Farm Yard is very good and they are very dog friendly. We also had two visits to the Lathkill Inn at Over Haddon which is a long standing favourite. very impressed with this cottage and the location."

"Charming, relaxing country cottage. Warm, cosy and comfy. Strayed for 5 nights, 3 of which were shared with friends. All had a lovely time, weather was good, pubs even better especially the Timothy Taylor Landlord in the Farmyard Inn! Food was excellent there too as was the food in the Bull's Head. Peak Food Bakery and the Deli very good especially fresh rolls and homity pies. Only used the car once during stay, walked every day from cottage. Bought a book from Deli called "Walking in Youlgreave" which proved very helpful (only £4.99). Fire was amazing and made for really cosy evenings in - our little dog Alfie really enjoyed it."

"We have never stayed anywhere as beautiful as this cottage. The attention to detail is like a 5 star hotel but more homely. We loved The George pub, welcomed us with muddy boots and the dog. We had the giant yorkshire puddings."

"We came all the way from Germany to visit our friend here in Youlgreave and we were allowed to stay in this wonderful cottage. Our 11 year old son said " What a brilliant mixture between old and really modern " We liked it very much, slept in the beds like in a cloud. We took a lot of wonderful english food back with us and even more wonderful memories. Thank you so much."
