About Rachel Halley

The cottage owner is Rachel Halley, I grew up in Sheffield and spent a lot of my childhood exploring this beautiful part of the UK. I am passionate about the area, the village and I take great pride in being very hands on with the management of the cottage. I have an ongoing programme of improvements which the regular visitors love as there are always new touches whenever they return.

I look forward to welcoming you to Thimble Cottage.

Rachel Halley purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Rachel Halley chose Youlgreave

We just love the area, the countryside is so beautiful, the people are so friendly and there is so much to see and do, or our guests just relax and unwind. We use the cottage as an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Having spent many years renting other people's cottages, we have learnt that home comforts are essential for a relaxing holiday. We have filled the cottage with many luxury items that we think you will love and we very much look forward to sharing our cottage with you.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is conveniently located in the heart of the village within easy strolling distance of the 3 village pubs all of which accept pets and serve good reasonably priced food.

We encourage our guests to shop locally as much as possible. There are 2 butchers in the village which double up as village stores / Post Office and sell all the essentials.

Hollands the butchers make the most delicious pies in house - both sweet and savory and we tend to stock up when we are in the village.

We Love Thimble Cottage

We did the long walk from the cottage to the Bulls Head at Monyash but added in over Haddon too. Dinner at farm yard inn. Kayaked at Carsington waters and walked round Carsington too. Just had such a wonderful time

Fabulous Cottage for 2

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little cottage and will definitely be booking again.

The fluffy robes were a lovely added extra and the small rear garden was great for our dog. The walks around the village and the area were fabulous and we had a couple of lovely meals at the Farmyard Inn.

Bakewell is a must as is Chatsworth but we didn't venture much further.

Thank you Rachel for great customer service and for creating a real home from home, we will certainly be back.

Gorgeous Little Cottage - perfect for 2

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful 3 nights at this delightful little cottage. It was far too short and we definitely need to return for longer next time.

We loved the comfortable bed, we overslept every morning ! and although we didn't need to, we lit the woodburner each evening. The large corner sofa was just perfect for lazing around on in the evenings.

We ate out in Bakewell a couple of times and a must is the Chatsworth Farm shop which sells such wonderful treats; breakfast or afternoon tea in the cafe there is also a must.

Thanks very much for a wonderful stay, we're already looking forward to our next visit.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

We've been staying at Rachel's cottages for the past 10 years and we have a great affection for Thimble Cottage as it was the first of Rachel's cottages that we stayed in. She has improved it considerably over the years and like all her cottages we love going back and seeing the improvements. As soon as we walk in it feels like coming home.

Thimble Cottage has a woodburner in the sitting room which is lovely for cosy evenings in.

Our favourite of the 3 village pubs is The Farmyard Inn which is just a short walk away and serves good pub food, I wouldn't describe it as a gastropub but the service is always friendly and efficient and the food is very good.

We love Bakewell and always stock up with Bakewell puddings to take home and we would also recommend The Farm Shop at Chatsworth where there is a lovely cafe with stunning views and most importantly they serve a full cooked breakfast - yum yum.

Loved this cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage lived up to our expectations and we hardly want to write a review and would prefer to keep the secret to ourselves. The cottage is clean and full of character. It has a view into the village, which we also liked. We loved the village, which is peaceful and welcoming and in close proximity to Bakewell. The owners and housekeeper are equally approachable and helpful. Please don't pass this on, as we want to go back ourselves.
