Owner’s contact was spot on and informative

"The cottage was in an excellent location for pubs, a shop and a bakery, with easy access to lots of interesting places."
It was excellent value and well provisioned to facilitate a comfortable stay. We loved it!
Thank you for your feedback. We always appreciate it. Sorry we did not meet on this occasion. George and Liz Property Owner
"Fantastic little cottage in the middle of the Peaks as a great base."
Close to all the tourist spots. Very comfy and beds were well needed after great walks. Weather was a bit hit and miss but you get that in the peaks. Definitely will be back.
Thank you for your feedback,it was lovely to meet you both. I know the weather was not great but you seemed to make the most of it. We hope you can return. George and Liz Property Owner
"Very Clean & comfortable property with the added bonus of a sunny courtyard complete with garden furniture (which we were fortunate enough to make full use of) & useful reserved parking."
Great location, near to shops & pubs, local walks & short drives to many more. The owner called to see that we had everything we needed & was very helpful. We spent a wonderful week in this home from home property & would love to return
Thank you for your feedback and comments. It was lovely to meet you and find time for a chat. We would be delighted if you are able to return. George and Liz Property Owner
"A very good property that is well equiped and comfortable to stay in."
We loved the powerful shower and due to the cooler weather put the heating on which was very quick and efficient at getting the house warm. The little garden was great to sit in at the end of the day an relax. Also used Netflix in the evening which was a lovely bonus. Great place, would love to come back again.
Thank you for your feedback. It is appreciated. We also enjoyed your comments in the guest book. You certainly packed a lot in during your week. It always gives us a lot of pleasure to know your holiday has been a success. George and Liz Property Owner
Super clean, very comfortable beds and a well equipped cottage. We appreciated the milk, wine and biscuits on arrival and the good communication telling us the time the cottage would be available. We enjoyed our week; spending time walking, running and geocaching in the Peaks and cycling around Ladybower and Derwent reservoirs.
Thank you for your feedback. It is always great to know you have had a good holiday and enjoyed the cottage. George and Liz Property Owner
Great to have allocated parking and to have use of owners bikes. Close to all amenities and lots of walking. Good location.
Thank you for your feedback it is appreciated. The bikes are proving popular so glad you made use of them. George and Liz Property Owner
"What a lovely cottage, furnished & cleaned to a high standard."
It was probably the best shower we've ever had in a holiday cottage & the bed & sofas were very comfortable. The kitchen had an excellent hob / oven & the fridge & freezer space was more than adequate for a weeks stay. Smart TVs & excellent Wifi throughout made it a home from home. Bradwell has a great fish & chip shop, the Bakehouse with it's Pizza nights & the Co-op meant anything we didn't bring was a very short walk away. The only thing we missed from the description was the fact the garden/courtyard was not directly accessible from the house & access was from the kitchen entrance area which was shared by the neighbours meaning we couldn't just let our dogs out directly from the house into the garden. Would thoroughly recommend this house to anyone.
Thank you so much for your feedback it means lot to us. I will make it clear in the description regarding the garden. It is not something we can alter. Of course there us the front door leading onto the footpath but this requires a lead! George and Liz Property Owner
"The Dispensary is a fantastic and well equipped cottage in the centre of Bradwell that is nicely located for Castleton, Hathersage and other great spots for visitors."
There is great walking from the door and the bikes provided means you can either cycle from the door or pop them the car to go to places like LadyBower/ Derwent/ Howdens or the Monsal Trail! George and Liz have thought of every detail to make your stay a comfortable one and also provide tea, milk, biscuits and wine to enable a cuppa as you step through the door! Highly recommend this cottage and are already looking to book our third visit in 2024.
Clair/Jo thank you so much for your lovely feedback. You certainly packed a lot into your week! We noticed you have already booked a week in 2024 so thank you both. We look forward to seeing you again in 2024. George and Liz Property Owner
"A very nice house in a lovely village."
The owners have thoughtfully provided everything from Netflix to bicycles, plus lots of information on things to do. We went there to explore on mountain bikes. If you have a decent level of fitness or an e-bike you will love it. Some of the trails a re quite technical though so be careful !
Thank you for your feedback it is appreciated. We try to cater for all types of holiday. Sorry we were not around to say hello. Even holiday cottage owners need a holiday! George and Liz Property Owner
"Beautiful cottage in the lovely village of Bradwell."
The owners have been most thoughtful in ensuring that the property has been equipped with everything needed to ensure an enjoyable stay. The property was spotlessly clean & the wine & biscuits were most appreciated. There was a considerable amount information on various walking trails & local information. They had even provided bicycles for use by their guests. All in all a wonderful stay in this lovely cottage. Would have no hesitation in visiting again.
Thank you for your feedback. Nice to meet you briefly and have a chat. We would be delighted if you are able to return. George and Liz Property Owner
"Really happy with the accommodation and the information provided by the owners."
Everything we needed in the property. Very clean and tidy. Good position for walking in the area.
Thank you so much for your feedback. We are always delighted to know our guests have enjoyed their holiday. George and Liz Property Owner
"The Dispensary is a lovely cosy and comfortable place to stay in Bradwell."
All facilities that you need are available and although close to the road, we found it very peaceful and quiet, at times, the loudest sound being the stream flowing past. The village is fabulous with a really handy, well-stocked Co-op, bakery, cafes and pub ie Shoulder of Mutton which is very friendly and welcoming. There are good walks around the village, it was very nice to stroll round in the evening with the dog, and it is also an excellent base for the superb walking in the area especially Castleton, great ridge, Eyam etc etc. We would strongly recommend a stay here.
"The cottage was clean and comfortably furnished with a well appointed kitchen and bathroom."
Set on three floors, so beware if you choose the double bed after a long days walking !. We both enjoyed our stay, the weather wasn't great but we made the most of things, lets face it in this country you have to be adaptable. George came over to say hello and was very friendly and helpful. The entrance to the car park is tight so take it slowly. We would stay here again in the future. (25/3 - 1/4) Wayne and Karen
Thank you for your feedback it is aways appreciated. It was nice to meet you both and spend a bit of time chatting. The weather was a bit of a challenge during your week but glad you could make the most of it. We would be delighted if you return. George and Liz Property Owner
"Lovely clean cottage, with everything you may need."
Nice to have welcome wine, milk and biscuits. Lovely village with good amenities, co op very handy. Plenty places to visit either by car or walking from cottage. Beds very comfortable and good tvs. Wifi is good. Dog bowls and bed provided is a nice touch though we brought our dogs own bed and crate. Good contact from owner. Only minor niggle the sealant around bath could be much better, especially as bathroom nice and modern. Would recommend without hesitation.
Thank you for your feedback . We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for pointing out the sealant round the bath. It is being done this Saturday. George and Liz Property Owner
"Very pleasant stay, good facilities, slightly narrow access to the parking area but plenty of parking on the road outside if you prefer."
Excellent fish and chips just down the road and the Co- op looks to have had an upgrade in the last few years and is even closer than the chippy. And a shout out for the Bird Café on the Hathersage Road just by - lovely café which has a big window to sit by and watch all sorts of small birds come and feed just in front of you.
Thank you for your feedback Simon. Please note if you return we have a large 2nd reserved parking space on soft water lane just over the road from the cottage. It is available by request. We are going to try the bird café thank you. George and Liz Property Owner
"This is such a beautiful."
Olace to stay, so comfortable and really felt like a home for us. Easy walking distance of a shop, bakery, village store, you don't have to drive to get anything. Beautiful area, and within 15-20mins you can be in Castleton or walking on the Monsal Trail. We will definitely return.
Thank you for your feedback. We try very hard to make your stay enjoyable. We hope you can return soon. Best wishes George and Liz Property Owner
"I found the Dispensary to be clean, comfortable & well equipped."
There was milk & wine in the fridge when I arrived & also tea & biscuits. The owner sent me a text on the day of arrival to tell me that the cottage was ready & I could arrive early if I wanted to. Apparently he sent me an email too a few days before but unfortunately I never received it. I also received a text after leaving, thanking me for staying & that, after reading my comments in the guestbook he would be rectifying a couple of things - only to do with kitchen utensils. This all shows that the owners genuinely want you to enjoy your stay & you are not just another "punter". Bradwell itself was a perfect base, having everything you should need for a self-catering break without having to visit major towns & supermarkets. Unless you want to of course. All in all a great place to be based & I would not hesitate to stay at The Dispensary again when I am in the area.
A belated thank you for your feedback. We have added a wok to the cooking utensils. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay , it is important to us. George and Liz Property Owner
"Very nice cottage, excellent facilities, everything you need to enjoy your stay at the cottage is there and the land lords very friendly and helpful, will be staying again."
I Highly recommend this property, David Lewis.
Thank you David for your kind comments. Your continued support is appreciated. George Leeson Property Owner
"This was our second long stay at this cosy, well-located cottage in the centre of Bradwell."
It is equipped with everything we need and is comfortable, warm and clean. The owners are friendly and welcoming (on hand if you need them) and it is always a great pleasure to stay here.
Thank you for your lovely comments. We enjoyed meeting you this time. Covid restraints prevented this on your last visit. We hope you will return. Property Owner
Very comfy and homely and not sure how to word this, but it was lived in enough that I felt comfortable with the dog, which is what I was hoping for. The small touches of wine, biscuits, milk and bowls and a dog bed were really appreciated. Nice little village and we would love to revisit both Bradwell and The Dispensary
Thank you for your kind comments. Our aim is to try and make sure our guests are comfortable and warm, including dog guests! We hope you will be able to return. Property Owner
"A really lovely cottage, great position in the Peak District."
Very clean and well appointed. George and Liz were very helpful. We look forward to our next stay.
Thank you for your great response. We try very hard to make sure you enjoy your break. Property Owner
"We really liked the fact that the owner contacted us and left some milk, a variety of tea bags and a bottle of wine for us."
It was great to know that the owner lived locally and we could contact them if we needed to. We would particularly recommend the comfortable memory foam mattresses on the beds! Really aid a good nights sleep. Especially liked the two single beds for our two girls, who hate sharing! Great sized freezer so that it stores enough food for the whole week. Lovely and warm and cosy, would have liked views from the lounge which is quite dark. All in all, we will no doubt return at some point again. We recommend.
Thank you for your feedback it means a lot to us. We try very hard to make the cottage comfortable and cosy for your stay. We also wish we could improve the lounge! Now the covid threat seems to have gone .We intend to improve the small garden by moving the bike store elsewhere and better furniture.Plus some pots etc. We look forward to your return Property Owner
"Very comfortable and clean."
Good sized kitchen and living room. Quiet considering being near a main road. Convenient for walking or cycling. Would have like a few plants in the garden to make a bit more appealing
Thank you for your feedback . We had a plan to sort out the garden last year but as with everyone covid had a major impact on our finances . We are going to move the bike shed at the end of the garden to allow more space although it is is never going to be a “proper” garden. However it is a lovely spot to enjoy the afternoon sunshine perhaps after a walk or day out. We will then have tubs with plants for the summer. For practical reasons the gravel will remain. Also we have just had confirmation we will have a second car parking space available from the 1st of November. We always take you feedback very seriously Many thanks Property Owner
"We had a lovely stay at this beautiful cottage."
Clean and comfortable, with everything you need for your stay.. The owner even left milk, biscuits and wine which was very thoughtful. The co-op supermarket is a 2 minute walk, along with the chip shop and local shop which was so handy . We dined in the shoulder of mutton pub which is a five minute walk away and the food was delicious. The location was spot on for my favourite places to photograph and walk being Mam Tor, Winnats Pass, Suprise View and Ladybower Reservoir. I have stayed in a few different villages in the Dark Peak but Bradwell was my favourite and I will definitely be booking this cottage again in the future. My daughter,myself and my dog absolutely loved it.. Thank you.
Thank you for your lovely feedback. We try very hard to make sure you enjoy your stay. I am sorry we did not get to meet you during your short stay. We hope you will be able to return and pursue your photography further. Property Owner
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Dispensary, the cottage was lovely and cosy."
Throughout the cottage was clean and tidy, comfy beds and sofas. The kitchen was well equipped and very clean. The owners were very welcoming and brought us a fan during the week as the weather got warmer.
Thank you Caroline for your feedback it means a lot to us. We always ask for constructive feedback so we can improve where necessary. We are glad you and your family enjoyed your week. Property Owner
"Good cottage very happy our holiday choice."
Nice and clean and comfortable. We slept on the second floor really comfortable bed and spacious room. Good size smart TV and comfortable sofas in the sitting room. Good sized bathroom Useful maps and information provided. The cottage is just off the road and has its own its designated parking space which is really useful in peak district villages no carrying your luggage up hills and beyond. There is a road nearby but it did not impact on our holiday at all. Ideally placed to visit other areas in the peak district There are plenty walks straight from the door. We had a nice walk through to Castleton. 3 pubs in the village all are very good. Chippy good too and a nice bakery Friendly locals too Milk, wine , tea, sugar and coffee all provided, thankyou. Don.t bother bringing your own teabags owners provided really enjoyable teabags lovely. All the essentials washing liquid, hand soap salt pepper etc. thank you for a good holiday.
Thank you for your lovely feedback. We try very hard to make sure our guests have a great holiday . Property Owner
"Only one minor issue was the difficulty in locking the front door from outside, no problem from inside."
Other than that everything was very satisfactory.
Thank you for your wonderful feedback and comment on the front door. We will give that our attention on the next changeover. We try very hard to make sure you enjoy your holiday. Thank you for booking with us. Property Owner
"Lovely cottage and friendly owners, close but unobtrusive."
Small outdoor area with table and night lights. Kitchen well equipped, including bits for washing up and some teabags/coffee/condiments. Milk and a bottle of wine in the fridge were a lovely bonus. Beds very comfortable, towels very soft. Great powerful shower. Perfect location, in the middle of the peaks but with good local pub, co-op, bakery, cafe, fish and chip shop, and locally made ice cream all within close walking distance. No problems parking my large hatchback. You are just off the main road but we had no problems with noise.
Thank you for your lovely feedback. We try very hard to make sure our guests are comfortable. We always welcome any constructive feedback on anything we can improve. We are close to the road through the village so glad to hear noise is not a problem. We hope you might return Property Owner
"Cosy and well equipped."
Garden small but lovely suntrap. Owners very helpful. Great Central location for visits around the area. Parking can be a little tight, if several large vehicles are there. Village has all you need
Thank you for your lovely comments. We try very hard. The parking is a bit tight but soon we hope to have a second bigger space. Property Owner
"Very comfortable cottage owners couldn’t have been more helpful definitely would stay again."
Thank you george & Liz
Thank you for your lovely comments Property Owner
"A great place to stay for visiting the peak district the property was just ..."
a great place to stay for visiting the peak district the property was just great warm and clean and conferrable and every thing there to make a great stay
Thank you for your feedback it means a lot to us. We try very hard to make the cottage a great place to holiday. Property Owner
"Great cottage to stay in, we needed for nothing."
Clean and very comfortable. Situated in a lovely location for long and short walks. Easy access to Buxton and Bakewell. Local amenities are excellent. Couldn’t be faulted.
A belated thank you for your lovely comments. It gives us great pleasure to know our guests have enjoyed their holiday. Property Owner
"It states there is a garden which there is which having a dog is a reason why we booked."
What it doesn't tell you you have to go out of the back door unlock a padlock to enter it. Which isn't good late at night plus no grass all stones. Also a washing machine but no washing line just a little airer in a cupboard on the top floor. Previous guests have mentioned the carpet needed cleaning which hasn't been done plus stains on the sofas very off putting.
"Such a lovely cottage and in a beautiful village."
We had a great week and would highly recommend it
"Surprised to find the curtain lining in the living room so dirty when we arrived!"
We had only come out of lockdown less than 2 weeks before, so these should have been spanking clean prior to guests arriving. The nest of tables were very old, and the leg dropped off the smallest one when we pulled it out to use. The toilet brush was disgusting and should be replaced very regularly! The cottage otherwise was nice and clean. Directions to get to the key pad and door could be clearer, we walked about a bit trying to find it!
"I have to say this is one of the best cottages I've stayed in, very much a home from home."
Comfy beds, great shower, smart TV, very well equipped kitchen with everything you could need for a week away, bonus of tea, coffee etc & cleaning things - less for me to take next time. Perfect place to explore the Peaks, walks from the door & not far off the bus route for none drivers. I will be back
"Cottage had everything you needed for a comfortable stay."
Area beautiful with lots of great walks.
"The dispensary was one of the best houses we have stayed in."
The owners had thought of everything to make staying there a comfortable experience and like to have feedback on what if anything can be improved. Bradwell is a lovely village - situated well for exploring beautiful Derbyshire .
"This was one of the nicest holiday cottages we have been in for quite a while."
They thought of everything! Even the little back yard had fairy lights at night! We hope to book this one again.
"This was our first walking holiday and first 'dog' holiday too."
The owners have equipped the cottage with exactly what was needed.Small things also were provided that were not expected like a flask and a picnic blanket at our disposal which although not used, were lovely extra touches. Overall, it was very comfortable for the amount of time we were in the cottage itself, which was most evenings after a day out and a meal at one of the local pubs. Owners have supplied extras to the TV packages as well. The location was spot on with good local amenities. Definitely recommend this place for a break.
"The cottage was lovely, perfect for our neeeds, comfortable, warm and cosy even though the weather was cold and wet."
. I was just very peeved to discover too late that I'd booked it accidentally with the American agency 'Home Away', for which priviledge I paid an additional £36, instead of with Sykes, who dealt with the booking, key collection details, indeed everything really. Home Away did nothing but take my money as far as I can see I don't know how it was that I found myself on their website placing the booking with them not you, and I appreciate this was a case of my 'buyer beware' as I didn't know you also place your properties with other agencies Lesson learned, but it left me feeling rather bitter.
"Really lovely cottage in pretty village well placed to explore this wonderful area."
Past reports of uncomfortable sofas have resulted in new ones being installed. It seems The Dispensary’s owners act on previous comments and improve this property each time an adverse comment is made. Easy to find, central location close to two pubs, good chippy and useful Co-op pop up store (usual one being upgraded). Highly recommended and good value.
"Excellent location for visiting the area."
Very comfortable property. Good facilities within to make it home from home. A Co-op nearby was really useful.
"Cottage was good but uncomfortable sofas and small garden bur weather cold anyway so didnt get used."
not impressed with the village it was in, didn't feel we were on holiday as nothing to do on a night unless you drove out of village and when you have been driving all day to visit places it's not what we wanted to do. Rubbish pubs and food in bradwell Wouldn't go back to peak district.
"Nothing went wrong but; the two small sofas were the most uncomfortable items of furniture I have ever sat on."
.....the amount of pigeon poo on the front doorstep showed it had not been cleaned in a long while. Also the amount of building work going on in adjoining properties with drilling and banging not six foot from our back door and having to negotiate builders vans etc to get to our parking space just took the edge off our stay.
"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 cottage was well equipped,especially for walkers."
The owners also being walkers knew exactly what was needed.Small things also were provided that were not expected.Making the week s happy experience.The location was spot on,with good local ammenities.Definitely recommend this place for a break.
"Lovely cosy house with all the facilities you need for a relaxing holiday, nice village with a little river streaming past the front of the house."
Really enjoyed our stay.
