Dale Cottage Youlgreave
Dale Cottage is a lovely old 2 bedroom stone cottage overlooking Bradford Dale in the heart of the Peak District National Park village of Youlgreave. The cottage has been completely renovated and is spacious yet cosy with an open fire.
The cottage was built about 200 years ago and has thick exposed stone walls and beams and has been completely renovated in 2009 with a new bathroom, new doors and double glazed windows. It has a spacious sitting room with an open fire, a storage heater and electric radiator. Because of its thick walls, in the summer it stays cool and in the winter cosy. There’s a piano, a flat screen TV, a CD player and IPOD dock, a sofa and chair and dining table. There are games and books for adults and children, a telephone and wi-fi access for your laptop/mobile.
The kitchen is modern with fan oven and hob, microwave and fridge.
Upstairs, there are two rooms, one with a kingsized bed and a little room with a small double bed.
The bathroom has bath, power shower, loo, basin and underfloor heating.
There is a coal and log shed and an outhouse for the washing machine, tumble dryer and garden furniture – recliners, parasol, table and BBQ.
At the bottom of the small garden, there’s the original outside loo! The garden overlooks Bradford Dale to the sheep-dotted hills beyond. The Dale houses a multitude of wildlife - water voles, kingfishers, dippers, winter wagtails and all sorts of ducks. A walk in one direction leads you to Middleton-by-Youlgrave, while in the other direction, you can take an evening stroll down to Alport, returning via a Youlgrave pub for an evening drink or meal.
