Full details

A traditional two bedroom semi-detached cottage in need of some modernisation with views over the village and countryside beyond, together with a stone shed and garden, located in the popular village of Youlgrave. A brilliant first-time home or investment property.


Wren’s Nest is located within the popular village of Youlgrave. The village offers a wide range of facilities to include primary school, post office, doctors’ practice, choice of public house, butchers and general store. The market town of Bakewell is a 10 minute journey and has a further range of shopping, restaurants and a secondary school. More comprehensive facilities are only a short drive or bus ride away in the market towns of Chesterfield (13.5 miles), Buxton (13.5miles) and Ashbourne (14.5 miles) away. The property is located in the Peak District National Park which provides the opportunity to enjoy fantastic walks, scenery and numerous outdoor activities close by.


From Bakewell town centre, head south along the A6 towards Matlock. Head out of the town along the A6 Haddon Road, continue past Haddon Hall and then take the next right hand turning onto B5056 towards Youlgrave. Continue along the road which merges into Alport Road and leads into Youlgrave. Follow the road into the centre of the village and on the ‘s’ bend by the church continue straight ahead. Follow the road past the Farmyard Inn public house on the right and then shortly after on the left hand side is the entrance to Bankside opposite the Methodist Church, identified by the agent’s ‘For Sale ’board. It is recommended that cars are parked on the main road and to walk down Bankside. Continue into a small parking area and then bear right and Wren’s Nest is the last property straight ahead.


We understand that the property was once part of the Haddon Estate as a workers cottage and was extended in the 1890’s. The property has been in the ownership of the vendor for over 40 years and therefore has not been offered to the market for sometime.


Wren’s Nest is a pretty and characterful cottage in a picturesque village setting in need of some modernisation. The accommodation is set over two floors with the main reception room and kitchen being on the ground floor, with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, all having far reaching views over the valley.
