    “We liked the cottage overall, and it was very handy to have the parking but.”

    ..I would like to offer the following as constructive criticism. ...

    ..I would like to offer the following as constructive criticism. The kitchen was tiny with a sloping ceiling over the worktop - we were continually bumping our heads. There was only room for one person at a time in there. I think it would be fair to mention in the details that the kitchen is small. The owners had obviously been to a lot of trouble to add ornaments, but there were too many and every workspace, cupboard and drawer was filled with their items. We would have preferred empty cupboards to keep our food in. A sign on the stairs to warn of the low ceiling ON THE WAY UP would have prevented my partner finding it the hard way just after we arrived. Instructions for the shower tap would have been useful. Instructions for adjusting the heating would have been helpful. Not sure if the description mentioned that it is on a steep hill. Elderly people might find this a problem. We did like the cottage and found it very cosy so I am sorry to sound as though I am complaining about it.

The property

This is a delightful one bedroom semi-detached cottage, situated in the pretty village of Bradwell, in the beautiful Peak District National Park.

Beautifully converted throughout, this compact cottage is the ideal base for a couple on a romantic break to enjoy what the stunning area has to offer.

On the ground floor there is a sitting room with a beamed ceiling, comfortable sofa and small dining table, just perfect for a romantic meal which can be prepared in the compact but well-equipped kitchen.

Upstairs, there is a beautifully decorated bedroom with a comfortable double bed, as well as a modern bathroom benefiting from a bath, a welcome addition for soothing tired legs after a day walking the surrounding beautiful countryside. Outside, there is a rear enclosed garden with furniture and views over the open fields and hills, and Smithy Cottage also benefits from a sought after parking space.

Bradwell village offers the convenience of three pubs all serving home-cooked meals, an award-winning restaurant, the Samuel Fox Country Inn, as well as a local supermarket, Post Office, bakery, fish and chip shop and the famous Bradwell ice-cream shop! There are lots of countryside walks available from the doorstep and the popular village of Castleton is a short drive away, with its visitor centre and famous Blue John Caverns.

Discover the majestic beauty of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall, visiting the market towns of Buxton and Bakewell, and for the youngsters (or the young at heart!) Alton Towers can be reached in just under an hour.

This lovely cottage provides a perfect romantic retreat for exploring all the beautiful Peak District National Park at any time of the year.

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.
