“Lovely cottage”
Reviewed 13 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017
1
person found this review helpful

Vallon cottage is situated on a quiet lane in the village of Youlgrave. There is parking outside. The bedrooms are upstairs, whilst the living room, kitchen, utility room and conservatory are downstairs, on a nice sunny day there is seating on a decking area with fantastic views over the hills. For birders there was a huge variety of birds that visited the decking or were flying close by. One bedroom is much larger than the other, we drew straws to see which couple would have which room! The beds are extremely comfortable. We were visiting the first RHS Chatsworth Show and Vallon Cottage was ideally situated for Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and there were lovely walks all around. The Farmyard Inn is 5 minutes walk from the cottage and does very good food, booking is essential.

So happy to hear you slept well in those comfy beds, it's great to lie in bed in the morning and watch the clouds and the birds too isn't it?
The farmyard is such a bonus and so close to the cottage too, glad you enjoyed their food and ambiance... Hope to welcome you again and thanks so much for choosing Vallon for your base whilst you visited the RHS show at Chatsworth. Thank you for a great review. Ali

“Charming, comfortable cottage in beautiful location”
Reviewed 1 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Wonderful walks directly from the cottage. Everything you need for a comfortable holiday. Photos don't do it justice - we enjoyed sunny breakfasts on the gorgeous deck. Bright, colourful and interesting interior, very homely.

So pleased you had such a lovely time Anna. Thank you for such a wonderful review. We love Vallon for all the same reasons and its so rewarding to be able to offer the house out for others to enjoy and to know that it's so appreciated. Thank you again and look forward to welcoming you in the future.

“Tranquil Stay”
Reviewed 16 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed at Vallon Cottage for 3 nights. We had never stayed in a cottage before and for us to come to Vallon to break our duck, so to say, we indeed had to be very lucky.

AND WHAT A CHARMING COTTAGE IT IS!

The decor, ambiance and quirky charm says more about the owner, Ali, as a person than a mere design inspiration; which, of course, we have brought back with us for our home.

The Farmyard Inn as recommended by Ali served excellent food. Visit to Chatsworth House was a treat. Bakewell trip was charming with plenty to shopped to eat. It rained most of the time but just driving around randomly was fun in itself.

The very scenic village, the well decked terrace, birds around the bird feeders, soon burning fireplace and the mini terrace garden added to the charm of Vallon.

It is a great little base to explore The Peak District. Had a wonderful time.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Beautiful cottage in a stunning setting. We felt perfectly at home and pampered at the same time. We especially loved the deck and the scads of information on local attractions.

So glad to hear you had a wonderful time in Vallon cottage. The deck is great isn't it and good that the folder of 'things to do and places to visit' was helpful. Hope you had a good trip home and thanks for choosing to spend time in Vallon and Youlgrave. Ali

“Beautiful Peak District”
Reviewed 12 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My partner and I stayed here in August 2015 with my in-laws who were visiting. We enjoyed this cottage so much! We immediately felt at home, and loved the unique layout and character features of the cottage. We were soon speculating what it would be like to relocate from London to the countryside! The cottage had all the needed amenities, although it is worth noting that when Ali says to bring towels, it means hand and face towels as well! The location is excellent; lots of good pubs and walks and a shop within walking distance. From Ali's recommendation we enjoyed the Farmyard Inn more than once - really amazing food there! Overall, an excellent stay and we would go back!

Thanks so much for your great review. Sorry to hear that you didnt realise about the towels and hope it didnt inconvenience you too much. We are curently reviewing what to do about towels... I do supply towels for those travelling from overseas and may be offering this to everyone next year. Glad you had a wonderful time in Vallon and Youlgrave and good to hear that The Farmyard Pub lived up to your expectations :) Ali
