  • "We had a lovely holiday at Columbine Barn."

    We really appreciated the underfloor heating when we came back from a day out. The cottage is tastefully decorated with very comfortable beds and sofa. The cottage is in an excellent central location for exploring the Peaks. You feel that you are isolated but the village of Bradwell is only a very short distance away. The outside of the cottage is beautiful and peaceful with a lovely picnic table. The owner Jess is really friendly and is quick to respond to any request we had. We will be back in the future.

    Thanks so much for your feedback, so glad you had a great stay! Property Owner

  • "The location was very good with easy access to Bakewell, Buxton and Castleton and not too far from other attractions such as Chatsworth, Cromford Mills and Crich Tramway Village, for instance."

    Having stayed in 2-3 cottages a year for the last 6-7 years we feel the Guest Information could have been more helpful than just a single page. For example, no instructions on how to work oven/dishwasher/washing machine and some local knowledge would have been good- which pubs are good for food (the White Hart is only open from Wednesday) and some tips for local things to do, eg. the cattle market in Bakewell on Mondays. A lot of tips/information we gleaned from the visitors book. As to the cottage itself, having parked in the drive there was nowhere to turn round other than reverse down a long S shaped drive. It may be possible to do a 3 point turn outside the gate when the ground is rock hard but not in September. The cottage was not very cosy - hard floors throughout the ground floor - no carpet/rugs - and the sofa and arm chairs were uncomfortable. The towels were like sandpaper. There was a huge pile of bedding and towels under the stairs - didn’t look very fresh. The varnished wooden staircase was slippery and dangerous if you were just wearing socks. It just felt as if the cottage was in need of a refresh - the toilet brush and container were filthy, the pots/pans/kitchen utensils had seen better days and the dishwasher was rubbish - when it finished everything was soaking wet and had to be dried by hand. Some power points were not secure and pulled away from the wall when you took a plug out. The owner explained that as they were on a farm collection there were no recycling facilities - we found ourselves driving round with bags of plastic bottles, cardboard etc but were unable to find any recycling facilities anywhere, even in supermarket car parks, so finished up putting it in the bin. The TV had two black lines vertically down the screen. Overall the cottage is in a good location but could do with some investment.

    As you can imagine I am very disappointed at this feedback. Firstly we have a welcome note with emergency contacts and lots of tourist information leaflets aswell as our lovely guest book (with all great helpful feedback) I feel this enough for people with common sense. I feel our barn is spacious yet cosy with underfloor heating and no rugs due to being pet friendly. The stairs are wooden yet safe. I keep laundry under the stairs in bags which is rotated weekly and also have it available if anybody needs anything extra it is there. The toilet brush is black almost new with a stone holder which is cleaned weekly. I have checked all power points, they are fine aswell as pots and pans. I apoligise for the dishwasher I have had that seen to (which I could have while you were there) if you had let me know, same as the television, a new one purchased straight away. Big bin provided for all rubbish as we are on farm collection. It is a small reverse to turn your car (never had an issue before) again if you would have let me know this is a problem we could have helped with a solution. I am glad you thought the barn was in a great location! Property Owner

  • "Delightful cottage in an absolutely superb location."

    Bradwell is a perfect and friendly base for exploring the Peaks. Cottage is comfortable and an incredibly relaxing environment. The heating came on at exactly the right time/temperature without any prompting. Very much appreciated

  • "Columbine Barn is a lovely cottage in a perfect location - super easy access to some amazing walks, as well as pubs and groceries."

    The cottage has a stair gate which made it super easy to keep our dogs downstairs (other cottages we stayed in didn't have one and it was difficult), comfortable beds, lovely living room area with kitchen, and enclosed garden.

  • "A well appointed property in a unique location, quiet isolation guaranteed."

    The freezer hidden away in the under-stairs cupboard was not immediately evident, but found eventually. A small shelf for toiletries in the bathroom would have been welcome. Care must be taken on the final track approaching the barn, it is quite rough and low cars can bottom out in places, mine did. Still pleased with our stay and would definitely re-book.

  • "Lovely and comfortable even with 4 adults and 4 children."

    The beds were comfortable and the living area and kitchen were a decent size. Facilities were excellent. The freezer is hidden in the closet :-) Owners very helpful if needed and prompt at replying. The view is absolutely stunning and Bradwell is a lovely village with everything you could need and some really good walks near by. Would highly recommend!

  • "- Needs (discreet) signage put up every 30/50meters getting into the barn area to get in from the street, showing that this is the correct way to Columbine barn, or a clearly marked Google Maps screenshot with bright red route highlighted, or clear day + night time photos of landmarks leading to the barn just to make it extremely easy."

    - Needs more toilet paper given by default in the property (we only had 1 roll given) - Need to WD40 the doors, locks so they don't creak as much in the night and sand down the bathroom door slightly so that it doesn't wake everyone in the property up when going in/out - Possibly WiFi info sheet + checkout info sheet in the bedrooms too These would all be helpful in our case but all pretty minor, was a great stay and very appreciated.

    Thankyou for your feedback, unfortunately we are not allowed to put signs up down the Lane to the barn, however Sykes do provide a step by step instruction guide on exactly how to find us and any problems I’m always happy to direct people. I am sorry you missed the toilet roll as more is always left under the bathroom sink. WiFi info is available on the welcome pack and a sign downstairs for when you arrive. We will have a look at the doors. I’m glad these things didn’t impact you to much and you enjoyed your boys weekend away! Property Owner

The property

Nestled in an idyllic position within a wildflower meadow with sheep and ponies grazing to the door, is this sympathetically renovated, detached barn, Columbine Barn.

Set over two floors, this welcoming home is perfect for families and groups of friends looking to come together and enjoy this rural region, accessing the scenic splendour of the Peak District National Park.

After parking up in the allocated off-road spaces, take a moment to appreciate the tranquil setting with a deep breath of fresh air.

Discover the open-plan living space, boasting contemporary décor and well-presented fittings, here you can discuss plans for the next adventure or tune into the TV for some evening entertainment.

Allow the chef of the group to relish in the kitchen, utilising an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher amongst the appliances.

A dining bench is ideal for dinner times, while to the outside is a picnic bench, perfect for lunches in the sunshine.

Wander upstairs to find the bedrooms, both laced with character and hosting a double bed and adult bunk.

Oak furnishings and overhead wooden beams bring an almost traditional feel to this space, while the contemporary shower room with rainfall shower is where you can prepare for the day.

When you’re ready to explore, from the doorstep there are footpaths including the Bradwell to Brough and Bradwell Edge routes, while the historic Derbyshire village of Bradwell contains clusters of traditional cottages and character houses, many of which date from the 18th to 19th centuries.

There’s also three charming pubs, the Ye Olde Bowling Green Inn, the White Hart Inn and the Shoulder of Mutton, each offering their own character and charm, along with an ice cream shop selling the famous Bradwell Ice Cream, produced in the village since 1899.

Explore Castleton further, home to interesting remnants of Peveril Castle, as well as a range of bars and stores to sample; walkers, bikers, and motorists may also enjoy the joys of Winnats Pass.

Should exploration take you further afield, the Peak District is a haven for walkers, cyclists and anyone looking to make the most of the stunning scenery and all that the area has to offer.

Columbine Barn is a peaceful retreat for a relaxing escape to the Peak District.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £50.
