  • "This is a beautifully cottage with everything you could possibly want and much more ."

    From the lovely bottle of fizz and treats awaiting us upon arrival to the comfort and cleanliness of the cottage itself we couldn’t have been happier with our choice . Or host Katrina kept in touch unobtrusively by text to make sure we were ok and if we required anything . This truly is a wonderful property and I would recommended it to everyone .

  • "This was our second holiday at Elderbank."

    In fact, it's the first time we have ever stayed in the same accommodation twice! We were so comfortable, it felt like home as soon as we walked through the door. The lovely little welcome gifts and the thought that has clearly gone into providing everything you could need, makes you feel incredibly special. The location is ideal, with convenience stores only a short walk away - and pubs! We went walking every day and never had to drive far to reach our chosen route. I would certainly recommend this lovely cottage.

  • "Perfect in every way!"

    Situated in the pretty village of Bradwell, the cottage is so charming with beams and open fire and a sweet garden to sit out in. It's very peaceful and cosy and ideally located for exploring the Peak District. The owner Katrina left some goodies in the cottage to welcome us, fizz, cookies, milk etc and even choccies by the bed which was lovely and she checked we had everything we needed regularly. The cottage is spotlessly clean with lovely fresh decor and the bed very comfortable. Everything you could possibly need to use during the week is provided, the kitchen is fully equipped and the lounge is comfortable. There are 3 pubs in the village, and the Shoulder of Mutton does good food. There's a village shop/post office and a co-op , a bakery and other amenities. We have thoroughly enjoyed our week spent at Elderbank and will definitely be recommending it to our friends.

  • "The cottage was well equipped and charming, and just right for two people."

    Everything was clean and tidy, and worked well. Unusually in our experience of staying in holiday cottages, the broadband was top-notch. It was fast and reliable; much better than the hairy string now-you-see-it-now-you-don't service so prevalent in more rural settings. A particularly nice touch was the 'welcome pack' that the owner left for us to enjoy - much appreciated! We were sufficiently impressed with the cottage and its convenient location that we expect that we'll be back in the not too distant future for another stay.

A generous welcome pack awaited us, which was really appreciated. Bradwell is a lovely village and we enjoyed chatting to friendly locals in The Shoulder of Mutton pub/restaurant which is a short stroll away and does good pub grub.The Co-op on the main road was handy for any self catering. There are so many walks locally that we were spoiled for choice and a week just wasn't long enough. We have already re-booked. Thank you Katrina for making us feel so welcome, sorry we forgot to write in the guest book. We would highly recommend Elderbank to couples wanting a relaxing away from it all break where you still have great facilities nearby.

A bit of rearrangement needed to facilitate this. Plenty of information available on places of interest within the area with maps and walks a plenty, if this is your thing. (Note to owner- if it’s possible to swap the doors on the fridge freezer, to open the other way it would give better access to the fridge behind the kitchen door.

  • "Elderbank is compact but beautifully appointed, furnished to a high standard and was very well equipped."

    The only criticism was the lack of information on the area, such as places to visit and suggestions for walks. In all other holiday cottages we have stayed in, whether in the UK or abroad, literature covering such topics, has been available. Otherwise we were very happy with our stay.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. With regard to information on local attractions etc, any leaflets or printed material we had was removed in accordance with Covid-19 guidelines. Laminated information was left in place for details on the property itself as this can be easily wiped down but other details were removed and our advice now would be to search local information online, especially as details for local attractions and businesses have been so changeable this past year; some may have closed and others have different opening times so we would advise to check online for up to date details. Thanks again for your comments. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage with everything you could wish for."

    Katrina was very attentive without being intrusive. Weather during my stay was not great so could not see so much of the Peak District as I would have liked. Nowhere too busy during the week, because of the weather ? However on the Sunday when the weather wasn't too bad everywhere was very crowded and car parks were full. Only change I would make would be to change the layout of the hardstanding for parking with 'grasscrete' or similar, as at the moment the easiest way to to exit is to back down the road onto the street.

    A pretty traditional cottage in a lovely quiet location, with very short walking distance to the local shops and pubs. The parking space was definitely a bonus. Katerina, the owner, was super helpful, and the house was spotlessly clean on arrival. For a small cottage it was really well equipped and we appreciated all the extras like coffee, biscuits and Prosecco! There were lots of additional useful items like tissues, hand sanitizers and wipes etc. The village itself is a great base for exploring the area, and we made use of the local bus service to Castleton which was handy. Bradwell is super hilly beyond the main road through it, very beautiful and interesting and well worth exploring all the side and back streets. We could have easily stayed for another week and would love to come back again - thank you!
