  • "Overall, a very pleasant stay."

    Would be better if the listing stated Bessie Lane as opposed to The Hills. The white goods could do with an upgrade (though trivial, it's difficult to turn the temperature dial on the oven if you have issues with your arm as I do, the fridge/freezer opened on the wrong side and one of the shelves is broken [a smaller one would also take up less room]). The provisions provided on arrival was a lovely touch. Shame one of the windows in the living area was frosted glass and didn't open (however I am sure there is a reason for this). Kitchen utensil/crockery etc. is the best we have seen/used in a cottage, and the layout is well thought-out. The cottage was not cluttered with bits and pieces which improved the whole aesthetics of the living areas (the AA book we found in one of the cupboards was particularly useful). The garden area is tiny (though didn't bother us as it was too wet and windy to sit outside), what would be useful though, is a free standing boot brush/scraper. Bradwell is a pretty little village with all the amenities you need and well worth a visit, a good base to visit the High Peaks. Thank Anita for your attentiveness, prior to our stay.

  • "The Old Coach House is a very well quipped cottage in an extremely quiet location."

    It is very cosy to stay in on wet days and everything is provided to give it a home from home feel. Thank you to the owners for the provisions, they were most welcome. The owners were very helpful.

  • "Regretfully, I must raise a complaint about our stay."

    The condition of the property was satisfactory. I would, however, take issue with the 'patio with furniture'. It was just a small space on the short path to the front door, and no patio as I know it. Still, that was a minor point. The toilet did not flush properly. The flush was too brief to flush everything away. Admittedly, it did flush properly sometimes, still, on those occasions the flush was still not strong enough to flush everything. I raised this with the owners and a gentleman did attend to the problem. He conceded it was an issue and said that he would ask a plumber to look at it - he added that he did not know when the plumber would be available. In the end, the plumber was due to attend the day after we left. The owner provided us with a bucket to flush the toilet. I subsequently raised this as a complaint but was informed that nothing could be done. In summary, we paid good money to stay in a property with a faulty toilet - one which we had to flush ourselves with a bucket. We are a family of four with two children, so this was a very unpleasant issue to deal with. I fully appreciate this was unforeseeable and I have not personal animosity towards the owners, they seemed amiable enough, but this situation was unacceptable and I would like to raise it as a formal complaint. I find if hard to believe that it was not possible to find a plumber to attend at short notice. Needless to say, we will not be using Sykes Cottages again. I would like to escalate this matter and look forward to a response. Mr and Mrs Rooney

  • "Everything about this cottage was great."

    Loved the location. Beautiful village. Only suggestion is to include Bessie Lane in location. The location and postcode given was accurate but there were 30 cottages there. Took us a little while to find it.

  • "Ideal location for lots of walking and visiting a variety of different places and things to do (age range 22 - 64)."

    Kitchen equipment could have been better, only real basics supplied. Bathroom extractor fan seems to have a mind of its own, and several of the radiators never came on. Would be helpful to have appliance instruction booklets especially washing machine as tumble dryer facility definitely didn't work as expected. Visitors comment book would be good along with some clocks, especially upstairs. Bradwell village had everything we wanted, and Derbyshire did not disappoint.

    One window in the living area no clear glass. Table in the kitchen gives no freedom for your legs.

    The window in the living area is not clear glass as this is a prerequisite of peak park planning. Property Owner

The property

This splendid, converted coach house rests in the pretty village of Bradwell, in the heart of the Peak District National Park.

Set in a reverse-level style, The Old Coach House is the ideal base for families looking to break away from normality and see what this scenic region has to offer.

Enter on the ground floor and discover the bedrooms, including a double and twin, offering a wealth of character and ample storage for your personal belongings.

Climb the carpeted stairs to the open-plan living area, featuring a wooden floor with vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, offering a homely ambience to unwind within each evening.

Allow the chef of the group to impress in the kitchen, equipped with all the necessities for a short break, while the rest of the group set the dining table with crockery and a bottle of fizz.

To the exterior is a small patio area where you can enjoy your morning coffee while you ponder on the day ahead, plus there is an off-road parking space.

The pretty village of Bradwell offers three welcoming pubs, ideal if you fancy a night away from cooking, and there’s a supermarket if you need to pick up the essentials.

Why not explore one of the many caverns in Castleton, like Treak Cliff Cavern or Blue John Stone before sampling some dairy ice cream from Bradwell's Ice Cream shop, a favourite in the village for over 100 years!

Keen walkers will be in heaven whilst roaming the Peak District National Park, offering walks through the stunning valley of Edale, which is the start of the Pennine Way, England’s first and most famous long-distance footpath, and the famous spa town of Buxton.

About the location


Castleton 3 miles; Tideswell 4 miles; Buxton 11 miles; Bakewell 12 miles.

Bradwell is a pretty village in the Hope Valley, in a prime position in the Peak District National Park. Tideswell, with its renowned Tideswell church, known as the ‘Cathedral of the Peak’ is just four miles from Bradwell. The picturesque village of Castleton is three miles away, home to fascinating caves, including the Blue John Cavern, and is overlooked by the crumbling Mam Tor or 'Shivering Mountain'. The dramatic scenery of Winnats Pass and Edale in the Edale Valley, famous as the start of the Pennine Way, is nearby. Hathersage is just four miles away and has excellent cafes and an open-air, heated swimming pool. Slightly further afield you can potter around the historic market town of Bakewell, or the Spa town of Buxton, renowned for its spring water, opera house and arts, jazz and opera festivals. It is easy to spend a whole day at Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall, whilst there are many historic properties nearby. Pull on your boots and enjoy the spectacular scenery, or explore a web of cycling trails, with bike hire available on the Monsal Trail, the Tissington Trail and at the Derwent Reservoir. Bradwell has shops, pubs and places to eat and makes an excellent base for enjoying this beautiful area.
