The bay window seat of this attractive stone cottage looks out onto the River Bradford, a picture-postcard scene in summer. Here a stone clapper bridge straddles the water and a riverside footpath offers an enjoyable stroll in both directions. This pretty backwater is just 2 minutes walk from the village centre, with its three pubs and several shops.
The cottage is at the end of a small terrace and has an enclosed front garden, ideal for sitting out and watching the world go by. The cosy lounge has a stone fireplace complete with log burning stove, making it a cosy place to return to in winter. To the rear of the lounge is a kitchen/dining room, with stable door leading to an enclosed flagged patio. The spacious contemporary kitchen combines modern fittings with a traditional cottage atmosphere and dining space for six people. Upstairs there are two pretty bedrooms and a nice bathroom complete with a freestanding bath and separate shower.
Youlgreave itself is an interesting village set between the sparkling waters of the rivers Lathkill and Bradford and surrounded by the stunning scenery of the ‘White Peak’. Lanes and paths branch out in every direction, perfect for both short walks and longer rambles. Situated midway between Bakewell and Matlock, it is one of the larger villages in the Peak District with narrow streets and an impressive church. Downstream is the picturesque hamlet of Alport with its stone packhorse bridge and millponds. The historic houses of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall are both only a few miles away.
