In the Peak District National Park, a charming village peppered with old stone cottages, and yours is no exception. Vallon Cottage is tucked off the (quiet) main road. Ali lived here so there’s a homely feel: book-filled shelves, nice furniture and rugs, plants, art on the walls. The galley kitchen will be a joy to cook in; you eat at the round dining table in the conservatory with French doors leading to the terrace. The garden is country-cottage pretty, with stupendous views from the decking area. Back inside there’s a handy utility room, a comfy sitting room with wood-burner, sofas with heaps of cushions, a grandfather clock and TV. Upstairs to two peaceful double bedrooms (one en suite, one with separate shower room). There’s a chill out room (no TV, just books and a sofa), and if you have extra guests you can spill into Ali’s adjoining cottage when she’s not staying there. Walkers will rejoice: there are myriad walks radiating from the door. Youlgrave has three pubs, and there’s a deli and general store; for more provisions Bakewell is 10 minutes in the car.
