The cottage was built about 200 years ago and has thick exposed stone walls and beams.
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 Sony HD TV with 100+ channels on Freesat, a DVD player, CD player with iPOD dock, a sofa and chairs and dining table. There are games and books for adults and children, a telephone and wi-fi access.
The kitchen is modern with an electric 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 (one side against the wall). Linen and towels are provided.
The bathroom has bath, power shower, loo and basin, and underfloor heating.
The cottage has recently been extensively refurbished with a new bathroom, doors and double glazed windows
Outside, there is a coal and log shed and an outhouse for the washing machine and 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.
