The Dispensary is named after its previous role as the village pharmacy, in the same building as the former doctors’ surgery.
It has now been transformed into a cosy modern retreat with period features, situated in the centre of the thriving village of Bradwell, in the heart of the Derbyshire peak district.
The accommodation is spread over three floors, with everything that’s needed for a comfortable stay for up to four people.
The property is entered through the newly fitted kitchen with electric oven, gas hob, fridge, toaster and microwave.
A small freezer can be found in the useful storage area under the stairs.
Walking through the quaint doorway into the lounge/diner, the huge oak beam that runs the length of the room can be seen, along with a modern dining table with four chairs, two comfy sofas and a TV with BluRay player.
Up the first flight of stairs, the newly fitted modern bathroom with shower and the large airing cupboard can be found, together with the twin bedroom overlooking the (safely fenced) picturesque village brook.
On the top floor there is a large storage cupboard/wardrobe and the master bedroom with a king size bed and a window with further reminders of the property’s history stored safely out of reach.
With off-road parking for one car available.
The ever popular town of Bakewell is only a 20 minute drive away, as are Buxton and Chatsworth House.
There are excellent walking and cycling routes throughout the Hope Valley and on Bradwell Edge.
If you're looking to stay more local, Bradwell has 3 pubs on offer, a mini supermarket and a Co-op for all of your essentials.
With many walking and sitting opportunities throughout, and places to stop for a lovely family picnic.
