Guest Reviews


    • “Wonderful week in The Peak District”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The Loft was one of the best self properties we have stayed in. Studio apartment decorated and furnished to a high standard, just right for two people. It was ideally situated for exploring the area where we found the owner and people friendly and helpful. Even the weather was kind to us allowing a glass of wine in the evenings on the balcony. Hope we can get back soon.”

    • “Lovely cosy cottage for a relaxing getaway”

    • “We had a really relaxing stay at the Loft. The accommodation is a little small, but that didn't worry us at all and it is very well furnished, well equipped and in a beautiful setting - make sure you take time to have a cup of tea of the deck and say hello to the horses. The local pub (owned by the same people that own the Loft) is only a 5 minute walk away and serves some of the nicest pub food we found in the area. The cottage is in a good central location within the Peak District making it ideal for those who are looking to explore the park and do some walking. The only sort of negative was the WiFi connection which the property is advertised as having, the connection in the cottage turned to be very unreliable and incredibly slow when it did connect. This wasn't too much of an issue, as I like to be disconnected while on holiday, however it did mean that we couldn't do any online research on places that we'd seen whilst out and about.”

    • “Had a lovely short stay at the Loft all the facilities we needed and to a very high standard. Sitting on the balcony in November was a plus and the views were amazing. Very good value for money. Can recommend the Shoulder of Mutton for great bar food and service.”

    • “Almost perfect”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The Loft Bradwell Stayed here from 15th to 19th Nov 2013 I would describe this place as almost perfect, nice location 5 minutes from the local pub. A pleasant hour and a half walk to Castleton. The loft itself is cosy with everything you could possibly need, one thing that's makes a big difference is the presence of a decent sized fully working TV especially at this time of year. The owner met us at the local pub car park as the loft could be difficult to find, we followed her in, she made us very welcome told us if we needed anything to knock on her door and ask, we didn't and she didn't bother us which was nice as it makes it feel truly independent. There is a small balcony outside over looking the horse field it was lovely in November and I can only imagine how nice it would be in Summer. The bed was extremely comfortable with good quality pillows and quilt. There is a walk in shower cubicle in a very nicely tiled wet room, adjusting the shower was a little bit tricky but then I don't find many that aren't on my travels. We visited the local pub on the Friday night, The Shoulder of Mutton, it was a little bit noisy with a group of local youths but I must say I was impressed at how well mannered and friendly they all were. We didn't eat in the local but the meals I saw being served looked good. We did have a meal at the Old Hall Hotel in Hope that was very nice I had Steak and Ale Pie my wife had Salmon and Prawns no complaints. This was a very pleasant winter break I would highly recommend the loft to any couple young or old, just be aware though that if you are not too nimble on your feet it can only be accessed by a steel staircase outside. Wifi access would add greatly to this property's overall experience, the owner did tell us this is something she is looking into”
