The cottage was spotlessy clean and very well equipped, everything was in good working order, the only downfall was the walk from the road to the cottage with the luggage, the surrounding area is beautiful and the views spectacular, despite the weather we had a very enjoyable week, Youlgreave is a friendly village, everyone is helpful and will stop to chat, the dog loved it too, the river walks in particular were great.

River cottage is absolutely lovely. We had a wonderful holiday there and thoroughly enjoyed waking up to the views over the Bradford Dale every morning. The cottage itself is very warm and comfortable, having everything we could have needed, and the people of Youlgrave are all so warm and friendly. I even felt relaxed and inspired enough to do a little crafting while I was there and made a little teddy pen holder and bookmark which I left behind as a small "thank you" for a lovely holiday. All in all we had a lovely stay and will definitely visit again with any luck!
Fantastic location for walking if you are fit and able

Relatively small cottage.
Some good features some average.
Great view of Dale from rear Garden / patio.
Very hilly - not suitable for older visitor or with young children in my view.
No car access.
Dog friendly location.
Excellent pub up the hill

It was a lovely surprise to find a bottle of wine and doggy biscuits awaiting us when we arrived! Sadly the previous tennants had not reported flooding the dishwasher and breaking the flush on the loo!
However, our stay was very enjoyable and the cottage was very comfortable, apart from the new owner of the nearby cottage moving in her furniture.

Beautiful Location - don't let the steep access put you off - you can drive to bottom when leaving to pack the car. We had a great time - like stepping back in time. Youlgreave is a lovely village and great base for visiting the peak. You can walk through some of the most picturesque dales from the house, stopping off for great food and beer in local villages. Cottage is well maintained and very comfortable - no complaints, but toilet needs fixing.
Great location, limited access to walks.

The property in general was very comfortable. In a totally unbiased and truthful opinion the carpet was very unclean in the lounge and there was alot of mould in the bathroom. The two bedrooms were in a good condition and there is outside space. The garden is not child friendly as it has a steep drop.
The cottage is situated down a very sharp sloping pathway and is very slippery when wet and is not ideal when carrying luggage.
The dog loved the river and had a great time, however the walks are limited and we left two days early. The village activities are limited.
All in all we did have a very pleasant stay.
