  • "I love the Loft: this is my 3rd stay here, and it always provides a spacious, comfortable, and peaceful base from which to base my breaks in the Peak District."

    The facilities are all that I need, and the views from the balcony immediately take away any leftover worries from everyday "real" life. The horses in the neighbouring fieldsjust add to the pleasure. I almost don't dare give it such a good rating, in case it becomes so popular I can't get a booking date in future!

  • "Warm and comfortable, everything we needed for a week's stay in December."

    At the right time of year, the balcony would be a lovely spot to sit in the sun, which it would get throughout the day - great view of the nearby hills and the animals in the surrounding fields.

  • "The Loft is well situated not far from local facilities."

    The Bakehouse in Bradwell sells delicious cakes and pastries. The apartment is self contained with the owners living next door. There is a balcony where you can enjoy an aperitif while watching the horses and sheep in the adjoining field. We can’t recommend this apartment highly enough. In fact, we booked The Loft for next year immediately upon our return.

    The owners were on hand if you needed them for anything, very friendly, helpful and welcoming. It was beautifully and tastefully decorated for Christmas and had everything you could possibly need. The Loft truly is a quiet and peaceful retreat surrounded by spectacular scenery. I've loved my time there and would highly recommend staying at this stunning property.

  • "We are familiar with bradwell village and was greatly disappointed at the access lane congested with neighbours parked cars, wheelie bins kept out on tight steep lanes,not good for guests who do not like poor vision on bends !"

    . The property is equipped but not special the shower is very very poor. The night of our arrival we were kept awake until 3.30am when we contacted the owner , due to a garage door being left open and the wind was slamming it shut. We received no apology for this in fact we never saw the owner during our stay. It would be help to guests to let them know at the same time of key code, that the co-op store in village is under big refurbishment. Also within the accommodation grounds there was serious pot holes ,this property is not ideal for guests who care for their vehicles.

    Thank you for your feedback. The majority of this does not relate to the property therefore, there is nothing for the owner to address. We can confirm that the shower has been checked and was found to be in full working order. Property Owner

    Cosy, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Very well equipped. Set in beautiful surroundings. Peaceful, but within easy walking distance of local shops etc., including a well-stocked Co-op, Village shop and a bakery. Many excellent walks in the area, from short (3/4 miles) to long distance (10/15 miles) and some good climbs (Win Hill, Lose Hill, Mam Tor, Abne Moor, etc). Cottage has an excellent shower and a south facing balcony to relax on in the sun, whilst watching the horses, sheep and lambs in the adjacent fields.

    If you are looking for total peace and quiet overlooking the fields in a small, cosy, first floor studio apartment with even a balcony, table and chairs, this is for you! The fittings and furniture were high quality and it was tastefully decorated with everything you could possibly need. Although small, there was plenty of definition between the sleeping, watching telly and kitchen area with a fab walk in power shower. It was private and only a stones throw to the village with its pubs serving gorgeous food and a few shops. Ideal for walkers but we just wanted peace and quiet after a hectic Christmas. Couldn't have been nicer and the weather was great too.
