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 Youlgreave

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!

Lovely cottage in a beautiful village

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this well equipped property. Since our last visit new shops have opened in the village as well as old favourites like the George. Day trips to Castleton, Ladybower and Chatsworth made for a busy week. I would recommend this property for anyone wishing to explore the Peak District or enjoy the local walks

Absolutely wonderful. Nice clean and tidy

  • 5 of 5

Hi Elaine, Thank you for letting us stay in your bungalow. We had a lovely time. The walks are amazing. Such a warm and friendly neighborhood. Unfortunately we were there when the road was being tarmacked, which ment we couldn't get out all day.We tried to support all the local shops and pubs (some amazing home cooked food). Although we tried to visit the Bulls Head three times it wasn't open. We would love to be able to return some time soon.

Owner's Response: I'm very happy that you had a lovely time and got to explore our village. Sorry about the road, I did ask the tarmaccers to inform you. I do hope you choose to return soon.

Fully Equipped Bungalow

  • 4 of 5

Super place, handy for glorious walks straight from the front door, 10 mins to Bakewell in the car, Bungalow had everything we needed for a two night stay, bedding and towels provided, the ONLY criticism is that the garden is not fully enclosed and there were two cats next door, our dog spotted them from the car so we were able to control the situation, but this is the only negative we found because our dog has a high prey drive, if your dog is quite placid obviously this wouldn't be an issue, would definitely book this place again.

A very comfortable place

  • 5 of 5

We were only able to spend one night here as we were between journeys, but this was perfect. Youlgreave is a little larger than I anticipated, and I had a bit of trouble finding Hillsway because I had no internet, but a helpful local was able to point us in the right direction. The house is clean and comfortable on a quiet road just a minute's walk from the village. The beds were comfortable and the shower very nice. Thanks, Elaine, for letting us stay even though it was just one night.
