STUNNING CONVERSION OF FORMER BLACKSMITHS WORKSHOP

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Youlgreave - The Forge

self-catering cottage sleeping up to seven people.Well equipped

Set in a quiet location at the heart of the village, The Forge provides spacious and comfortable accommodation for 6/7 in a building of real character. The lounge has a log burning stove - logs are provided, there is a delightful garden and off street parking for 1 car. The cottage has full central heating and is equipped to a very high standard.

Suitable for disabled. There are bikes available free of charge.

The building now known as The Forge is one of the oldest buildings in the village. It was run as a blacksmith's workshop until about 1975 by Billy Clark, a well known local character and artist.

Originally it was 3 separate workshops - a blacksmith's in what was once a 'one up-one down' cottage, a joiners in another two storey building and between them a single storey wheelwrights workshop. The central single storey building was extended to both left and right linking the three workshops. The anvil stands outside the front door and in the driveway is the stone on which the wooden wheels were secured to have their iron tyres fitted.

It was in very poor condition when the previous owners purchased it in 1999. It has, since then, undergone a sympathetic conversion and renovation completed in September 2004.

The front door in the central section of the building opens into a large hall.

To the right is a well proportioned and well-equipped kitchen/dining room with oak floor and exposed beams. Going through this room, a door leads to a spacious but cosy lounge, again with oak flooring and having a wood burning stove. French doors lead to a patio and good-sized garden. Above the lounge is a single bedroom with ensuite w,c. (a folding bed is available for use in this room if required).There is also a bedsettee in the lounge which can sleep a further two people if rerquired.

To the left of the front door the hall leads round to a beautifully fitted bathroom with shower. There is a double bedroom on the ground floor and a staircase leads to a twin bedded room with adjacent w.c.

All rooms are tastefully decorated and thoughtfully furnished. There is full central heating. We are confident that you will be pleased with what you find.The nearest shop and pubs are approx 1 mile away in Youlgrave although the local milkman calls regularly and can also supply eggs yogurts drinks etc.

Beautiful cottage and really well appointed

  • 5 out of 5
Six of us arrived on Friday evening and immediately fell in love with the Forge. It was really easy to feel completely at home from the outset. Beds were comfortable with crisp white linen and everywhere was clean, very well equipped and welcoming. Some lovely walks nearby without needing to drive anywhere were a bonus, but slightly further afield were the magnificent Chatsworth and other marvels such as the Derwent Reservoir. Derbyshire was resplendent in its autumn colours and we will certainly be returning. The owners have been charming and helpful at every stage, even offering to post back an item we left behind. Highly recommended.

Beautiful, roomy cottage in a stunning village!!

  • 5 out of 5
The pictures of the website really don't do this place justice. It is stunning and extremely spacious. The decor is lovely, well equipped kitchen, comfy beds and lovely little garden. The village itself was peaceful and beautiful and only a 10 minute drive to Bakewell.
Great value for money, this cottage is one of the best I have ever stayed in, extremely friendly owners, very roomy and makes you feel relaxed the moment you walk in, just what we needed!!

Lovely cottage, perfect long weekend

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful long-weekend here in early January with our three young children.

The cottage has so much character and is the perfect combination of period property with modern comforts. It is warm and cosy on winter's nights, with lovely decor, plenty of space and a lovely log-burner and a DVD player and board games in the lounge. The kitchen is well equipped and perfect for making family meals. The owners are lovely and know the area very well.

The cottage is well-placed for the beautiful Peak District. Despite being out of season there was plenty for us to do in the area, including Monsal head and :the Monsal trail, a local farm park and the Bakewell agricultural market, so much so that we didn't do all the things we had planned to. The children didn't want to come home!

Lovely Stay at The Forge!

  • 5 out of 5
A true home-from-home, extremely well equipped, warm, spacious and comfortable. An ideal choice for a family or group of friends, in a perfect position to enjoy the beautiful Derbyshire Dales. On the doorstep of our beloved Bradford Dale which was glorious in the snow!
The owner was a pleasure to deal with and very accommodating and understanding! Thank you, Howard.
Just wish we were still there!

Perfect location, cozy and delightful!!

  • 5 out of 5
We travelled from the USA arriving in Manchester and we were absolutely whipped when we got there. My wife and our two daughters who had not visited the UK before were really taken in by this lovely traditional English cottage which provided us with take it easy strolls in the countryside and all the amenities you needed for a very comfortable stay. There are a couple of stores in nearby Youlgrave ( 1.5 miles - a nice stroll to a picturesque little village ) for you to stock up your groceries and plenty of country walks , by road or down by the river that are nice and easy and also very relaxing.
The cottage is cozy, clean and very well maintained and the locals are very helpful also.
Youlgrave is a beautiful ancient and historic village ,which boasts the historic Youlgrave Church which contains a rare Knight's Templar on the alter . These are from the ill fated crusades in the 12th and 13th centuries and certainly worth a visit.
There was a delightful elderly lady in the village who is out and about most days with her dog and she gave us a fantastic local history lesson.
The only bad thing about this trip was leaving.
The kids loved the accomodation and were blown away by the local landscape and it`s green and mildly rugged beauty.
It provided us with a relaxing start to our vacation and boy did we need it.
If you arrive by car, park up and get on your feet.
That`s all you need.

A return visit to this lovely Derbyshire cottage

  • 5 out of 5
Another relaxing and highly enjoyable weekend break in this cosy and beautifully presented cottage. I went with a group of girlfriends to relax and spend some quality time away from it all. The Forge is immaculate and equipped with everything you could need - the log burning stove is a real treat!

The surrounding countryside is stunning and perfect for long walks or bike rides. We enjoyed a day out at nearby Chatsworth House and had a little retail therapy in the lovely town of Bakewell.

I can't wait to go back again and would highly recommend The Forge.

Middleton-by-Youlgreave is a small picturesque village at the head of Middleton Dale. It is an excellent base for exploring the White Peak area by foot, cycle or car and, for those simply wishing to relax, offers the peace and quiet of the unspoilt English countryside. There is a well equipped children's playground near-by.

About a mile, and a very pleasant walk away, is the village of Youlgrave with shops, a Post Office and three pubs all serving meals at lunchtime and in the evening.

The pretty market town of Bakewell is a short drive away and there is a bus service from Middleton -by-Youlgrave.

Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are easily accessible as are the spa towns of Matlock and Buxton.

Other Activities: birdwatching,ancient monument
