About Sally Badman
My husband and I bought Yew Tree Cottage in 2009 and then used local well-respected and highly skilled craftsmen to carry out the renovation to a high specification. We hope that guests enjoy the character and relaxing atmosphere of the cottage as much as we do.
Sally Badman purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Sally Badman chose Fenny Bentley
The Peak District is a beautiful National Park and although easily accessible, it remains unspoilt and quiet. It has stunning scenery, a wealth of historical buildings, exeptionally friendly, genuine local people and lovely market towns such as Ashbourne and Bakewell. It takes no more than 40 minutes to get to from either the M6 or M1.
What makes this Cottage unique
Once at our cottage, it is easy to walk or cycle to Dovedale or the attractive village of Tissington without using the car. The Tissington Trail is easy to access again without even thinking about securing bikes to the car. We have four bikes in the garage which guests are welcome to use during their stay. Only 200 metres away is a delightful family-run pub which provides excellent food and drink. Above all, the cottage is a perfect place to unwind and relax in comfort after a day's fresh air in the beautiful countryside of the Peak District.

Beautifully renovated charming character cottage
High standard of finish and cleanliness. Good communication from host and kind gift of wine and kettle chips were much appreciated.
Fabulous cottage in a beautiful location
The cottage was everything we needed a home from home experience. Very clean and extremely comfortable beds.
A lovely cottage
A great cottage with some lovely features. It is in a great location near the Tissington cycle trail and only a couple of miles from Ashbourne. I would recommend this cottage to my friends and family. Great communication from Sally once I had booked.
Cozy but modern, comfortable and very pretty.
A very pretty little cozy cottage that suited our family of four down to the ground. Well located for excursions into the Peaks and also close to the pretty town of Ashbourne with a great mix of small shops, markets and supermarkets for convenience. Would 100% recommend.
Yew Tree cottage is a lovely place to stay close to many walks within the Peak District
We have recently returned from a short break in the Peak District meeting up with family who were holidaying in the area. Yew Tree cottage was an excellent place to stay offering very clean accommodation and an exceptionally comfortable bed. There is also a modern bathroom and kitchen and everything you need to help make your stay a good one. From the cottage there are a number of walks that can be done without using your car and the local pub the Coach and Horses is only five minutes walk where we had a good meal. We can certainly recommend Yew Tree cottage as an excellent place to stay in the Peak District.
Beautifully renovated little cottage.
The cottage is in a very convenient spot in the Peak District just a walk away from three pubs and close to plenty of stunning country trails. It’s been refurbished in a very elegant style and fully equipped with modern necessities ( both the bathroom and kitchen are totally new) while retaining a cozy old fashioned country atmosphere with antique furniture. Everything was spotlessly clean and the linen luxurious. Everything in the cottage is in very good taste and well thought out. We had a fabulous stay! Thank you!
Whilst it is preferable to have a vehicle to enjoy the Peak District, the cottage is 200 metres from a bus stop on the A515 Ashbourne to Buxton road.
The nearest railway stations are at Derby and Uttoxeter
The cottage is 30 minutes drive from both Junction 15 on the M6 and Junction 24 on the M1.
Fenny Bentley is three miles north of Ashbourne. Other market towns, Bakewell and Buxton are a short drive away as are Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Alton Towers. Many guests enjoy cycling on the handy Tissington Trail or only a little further afield, at Carsington Water.
There are beautiful walks - the walk to Dovedale starts from the doorstep of Yew Tree Cottage. Many other fantastic walks are close by - Monsal Head, Lathkill Dale and the Roaches to name just three of the more well-known.
Ashbourne is a historic market town with a good choice of independent shops, supermarkets including Waitrose, Marks and Spencer, Sainsburys, and many restaurants and pubs.
There are some great country pubs within three miles of the cottage.
The Tissington Trail and Dovedale are a short walk or bike ride away. The Monsal and High Peak Trails also provide stunning scenery.
Every Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday, Ashbourne plays host to the unique and centuries old game of Shrovetide Football. Not like any other game of football anywhere in the world, The goals are 3 miles apart, play starts early afternoon and continues till 10'o'clock at night, the teams often swim with the ball when it enters the icy waters of the river running through the town - a sight not to be missed.
The annual dovedale dale dash, (held in November) great participation by the fittest and the not so fit. A great spectacle for runners and spectators alike.
