  • "The cottage was fantastic."

    There were four of us mountain biking for the weekend and the location and set up of the cottage was ideal for our needs. There was plenty of excellent riding out of Hope and Castleton and pubs and shops a very short walk away. The only negative comment is that the blurb said you could get 6 x adult bikes in the bike store. We just managed to get 4 in with 3 upright and balancing precariously.

  • "Loved the cottage, the park out the back, the area around Bradwell and the sunshine (well done for organising that!"

    ) Stella's kitchen was a wonderful find that we will talk about for years. A very special holiday xxx

  • "Great cottage in the centre of Bradwell."

    Easy access to local walks including across to Castleton and Hope. There were six in our party and we had sufficient room in the cottage and enjoyed being able to walk to the park, Co-op, deli and post office. Slept really well in the beds and appreciated the modern bathrooms. Would happily book again.

    Thanks for all of the feedback Amelia. It’s been a pleasure having your party stay. The neighbours really enjoyed you guys being there as well. Property Owner

  • "Spacious, very clean, comfy, cosy cottage."

    Well thought out, quirky additions to the decor. Lovely wood fire for chilly evenings. The house itself is very dog friendly but due to the small outside space being a walk through for neighbours, were not allowed to let the dog out for a morning wee without getting dressed and going for a walk. No local fields either where allowed to take dog off lead. Not much room in kitchen cupboard to store food. Great kitchen facilities & extremely well equipped. Showers & bath we're fab with endless instant hot water. The heating was easy to use & adjust if needed & kept place cosy. Loved the place, thank you.

  • "We enjoyed our stay."

    Two suggestions: it would have been very nice to have wood, fire starters, kindling and matches to get us started with a fire; and it would be very nice to have some sort of Welcome package. Everywhere we have stayed on our six week trip left us some sort of welcome. We did really enjoy the cottage.

  • "Beautiful cottage, decoration and facilities of a high standard."

    Lots of little touches of a woodland/ country theme. Very comfortable beds, bathrooms really lovely. Kitchen well equipped. Lounge very comfy, log burning for the colder months. Excellent base for the Peak District. Locally Pubs with food. Village Shop very well stocked Co op variety of items. Catered for Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten Free and Lactose intolerance. Great Fish & Chip shop. The Bakehouse great for fresh sandwich’s etc. Friendly village met nice people when out walking. Some great walks from there it’s self. Only down side was we are all light sleepers and the traffic at night was disturbing. Although owner has said he plans to address this issue. Would visit again as it accommodate the 6 of us easily and comfortably.

  • "Happy Feet Cottage is in a good location as most attractions are within an easy drive."

    The cottage is well equipped with a few thoughtful extras, although a coffee machine or cafetiere would have been appreciated. The beds were comfortable with lovely bed linen, cushions and throws. A lot of thought has gone into the decor and soft furnishings with lots of personal touches. The cottage is on the main road through the village so traffic noise seems loud at night as 2 of the bedrooms are at the front of the property but it didn't disturb us once asleep!! The outside seating area is nice although isn't private as a walk through for 3 other cottages. We wouldn't hesitate to return. All amenities in the village are just a few minutes walk away. Lots of lovely walks from the cottage so no need to use your car.

  • "Not so good aspects first - road noise was definitely an issue for us and disturbed our sleep as did the church clock which chimed every 15 minutes."

    In all other aspects the cottage was lovely, well equipped and owner explained the reason for lack of coffee machine and barbecue. Good location for exploring the area.

    Looking at going back sadly is not an option as the price rise is a massive £479 pound, and climbs up even more after July 1st. We had had a great time but your bes prices are do not reflect VFM and are not realistic.

  • "A lovely cosy cottage and well decorated."

    The bathrooms are a luxury, very nicely done. But this is not the choice if one of the party suffers pet allergies. Shop, pub and fish and chip shop two minutes walk away. Buxton, Bakewell, Matlock and Tideswell all an easy drive away. But buses run every two hours.

    The property was really clean and equipped with everything you may need for a stay. We forgot the dog’s bed so were really impressed with a dog bed supplied at the cottage! Dan was extremely helpful with any questions we had, a true attentive host. The location of the cottage is superb for any walks around the Peak District and we’d love to come back

  • "A very well appointed, (recently refurbished) lovely cottage."

    The ensuite bathroom and the main bathroom are very roomy with excellent showers in both and a great slipper bath in the main. The location for the cottage is ideal for exploring the Peak District with amazing walks on the doorstep. The welcome pack was very informative and the suggested walks useful. Coop and bakery two minutes walk away and three pubs all within staggering distance - we only got to try out two - The Bowling Green has a beer garden with amazing views of the distant hills and The Shoulder of Mutton did excellent food. Only two negatives about the cottage - the first being that it is on a very busy road - the noise woke us up throughout the night and the mattress in the master bedroom is very soft although obviously this is personal preference.

  • "The cottage was full of nice touches."

    It has been renovated to a very high standard, the kitchen and bathrooms are both luxurious. It is in a great location in the Peak District with every trip we made within 20 minutes drive. The CoOp is only metres from the cottage. The master bedroom is at the front of the cottage which is on the main road through the village so you can hear passing traffic, but soon got used to that. My sons are both over 6 foot so care required in the top floor bedrooms with have low beams ! The dog shower was handy. Would be more than happy to come back.

  • "Happy Feet Cottage is a beautiful, clean and comfortable cottage."

    It has been recently decorated to a high standard and there are lots of nice finishing touches. It is an ample size for six people and is in a central location for lots of nice walks. The kitchen would benefit the self caterers with a few extras such as serving bowls, colander, grater and maybe a cafetière. The small garden is a walk way for other neighbouring cottages but it is a perfect sun trap in the evenings for a couple of hours. Dogs are allowed in the garden on a lead but must be toileted elsewhere. It should be noted that the cottage is on a very busy road and the traffic noise can be quite loud even in the early hours. Our host Dan was very helpful when I asked about recommendations for local places to eat.

  • "Cottage was compact, clean and has some great features."

    Only criticism being that the "private" courtyard is actually a walkway for 2 other properties which I think should be mentioned in the details. This however, did not spoil our stay and when we needed assistance the owner was extremely helpful.

  • "A recently refurbished cottage, very comfortable with many thoughtful touches, finished to a high standard and making good use of the space."

    Weather not great for our stay but the cottage was very cosy and warm. The outdoor ‘dog shower’ is brilliant after muddy walks! Garden/courtyard is not fully enclosed (if you have a dog) but this would not stop us booking to stay here again. The owner, Dan is very approachable and helpful. A good base to explore this beautiful part of the Peak District.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback, it was great to hear you enjoyed your stay at Happy Feet Cottage, we are really happy to hear you would like to visit again, we will shortly be making the garden fully enclosed, we are just waiting for some good weather to get the gates installed. One again thank you for taking the time to leave feedback, this is very important to us. Property Owner

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.
