Situated in the picturesque village of Fenny Bentley, our cottage has been refurbished to an extremely high standard by local craftsmen.

The appeal to our large number of guests over the years is the cosy and relaxing atmosphere of the cottage. It has the typical English country cottage look and there is a small traditional garden to the front and side of the house. Just a short walk away is the excellent Coach and Horses Inn - a welcoming family run pub.

In 2014, a guest contacted us to say that they had decided to get married in Ashbourne and said, "Having enjoyed our stay in Yew Tree Cottage so much last year, we feel it would be perfect for our wedding weekend." In 2015 and 2016, our reviewers have said "peach of a cottage", "perfection", "immaculate" and "stunning cottage inside and out, the setting is great too as it's a small quiet village but close enough to Ashbourne and the local pub serves great food and is just a short stroll down the road." Guests after a second visit kindly commented that "the quality of the accommodation is of a very high standard and the amenities and location are also excellent." Last year, guests wrote in the visitors' book:- "When you book online, it's nice to see pictures but they did not do this cottage justice. It is so homely and has everything we could possibly need. The decor and facilities are brilliant." Other guests more recently wrote:- "Your cottage is absolutely perfect. It is so homely and comfortable." and "Fabulous cottage - so nice to walk from it to Dovedale." We are proud that Trip Adviser in 2017 recognised our cottage and service to guests with a Certificate of Excellence.
