    “The accommodation is well placed at the centre of the village, handy for shops.”

    It's also well placed for walking and lovely places of interest. It took us a little while to find the car parking space.. we had to park at the Co-op and investigate on foot. The cottage is a little dark and I think it would have been a bit claustrophobic if the weather had not been so good, ensuring we could get out. The bulb had gone above the television, meaning it was difficult to see clearly to do my knitting! The seating was not very comfortable.. one of us lay on the bed rather than sitting on a sofa for any length of time. The kitchen was well-equipped, though a cafetiere and a decent bread knife would have been desirable. We're novices with televisions and never did get the one downstairs to work! Overall, we enjoyed our stay very much. We've mentioned the negatives in order to help make the place better, but there were more positives than negatives.

The property

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.

About the location

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.
