About Elaine Harrop

Hi, we are a local couple, both us having lived all our lives in the village with generations before us. A hard working family, both passionate about The Peak District and visitors enjoyment of it.

The property was handed down to us, and we would like to keep it in the family. We want visitors to come and enjoy Youlgrave and the surrounding area, whilst staying in a true home- not just one aimed at making money from tourists.

Elaine Harrop purchased this bungalow in 1949

Why Elaine Harrop chose Derbyshire Dales

The property was left to us by a family member, and as we are both born and bred from the village, we decided that the property would make a fantastic holiday rental due to its ease of access as most holiday cottages in this area are challenging to get to to say the least.

What makes this bungalow unique

level access, ideally situated for village amenities, conveniently located for local walks and cycle routes and just minutes away from stately homes including Haddon Hall and Chatsworth House. And last but not least ample parking for at least 2 cars, with lockable storage facilities for bikes, climbing gear etc upon request.

Guestbook comments from the manager

“Fabulous Property”

5 of 5 starsReviewed 10 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Such a lovely property! It felt like a real home-from-home for myself and our girls! Never mind all these converted barns and the like; here's a place which was built as a proper home and still feels that way.

Perfectly situated in a quiet cul-de-sac a few minutes walk away from the village centre, Hillsway had everything we needed. Firstly, you can park right on the drive, not take your chance on a road some distance away (I speak with some experience here!).

Enter via the very well-equipped kitchen (we used the dishwasher a few times!) & you've got separate living & dining rooms (both really nicely furnished), two good sized bedrooms & a bathroom. All the essentials for the children were there (i.e. WiFi & satellite TV!) but in reality they spent a lot of time in the lovely garden as the weather was so good.

There's some great walks straight from the property - we spent a long time exploring beautiful Bradford Dale and the walk to Over Haddon (& the excellent Lathkill Hotel) only takes half an hour. Bakewell is very close if you fancy a pudding or, much better, a trip to the Thornbridge brewery; Chatsworth House & Haddon Hall are also close by. Don't miss Arbor Low - it's a big Neolithic Stone Circle few miles to the west of Youlgreave (the stones have fallen over but the site is no less impressive for that).

In short, we loved every minute of our stay. I can guarantee that we'll be back!

Property was spotlessly clean and tidy on arrival, the heating was on and it was lovely and cosy. This bungalow is a comfortable family home, with everything you could need, with large rooms, comfy sofas and beds, plenty of hot water, new carpets throughout, and is perfectly useable for a family of 4 with a dog. Boot rack in the kitchen and a 'no shoes in house' or dogs on beds/ furniture' policy. Elaine, the owner, lives in the village and left us her phone numbers should we need to contact her (which we didn't!) and her email responses before booking were very quick. Lots of walks on the doorstep, 2 pubs, both of which serve good food (esp. The Farmyard) and a bakery. The shop is small and stock basic subdries only and there is a small bakery. A short drive from Bakewell (under 10 mins) and Chatsworth house, within easy reach of The Roaches and a great place to base yourself for a walking holiday. Thank you for letting us stay.

Owner's Response: For guests to be comfortable at Hillsway and enjoy exploring the local area is obviously very important to me. The 3rd pub in the village is luckily now back up and running and the butchers shop which closed earlier in the year has been bought and will be trading as a quality deli and cafe in the Spring. Thankyou very much for your great review, I'm so pleased you had such a lovely stay.

Last minute booking but we fell on our feet!

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

We were let down in a booking at the last minute and thought we might have to cancel our riding break in Derbyshire but were lucky enough to find this comfy, clean homely bungelow that was available despite the few days notice. We fell on our feet here. It was perfect for our needs welcoming, in a very quiet location in a lovely village but within walking distance of 2 pubs. We had a lovely time and will book this in preference over B & B if we come for another weekend next year.

Owner's Response: Riding stables, where beginners to the very experienced, can hire horses are just a few minutes drive away and it's great to hear our guests get to explore the Peak District in a variety of ways.Llama tracking is also available nearby. Thanks for your lovely review, we are pleased we managed to accommodate you.

Very spacious and well equipped bungalow with fantastic garden space and outdoor furniture which was great to sit out on. Youlgreave is a lovely village with lots of walks from the door, including down to and along the river, and walks in the surrounding area. The Farmyard Inn just down the road was fantastic.
