A spacious first floor barn conversion with a charming living space and lots of original features. Surrounded by walking trails, this property enjoys a rural location, with easy access to Sheffield.

For visitors who are adventurous at heart or those who prefer peace and tranquillity, the High Peaks area surrounding Bradfield Dale is awash with potential for days out. Serene reservoirs, windswept moors and the exhilarating heights of The Pennine Way are within easy reach, best enjoyed after a slap-up feast in a welcoming country pub. Acting as the base for your explorations, this quirky property sleeps two and is packed with rustic features and all the home comforts you need for your stay.

Arranged across varying levels and adjoining the owner’s home, your comfortable accommodation features high vaulted ceilings, whitewashed stone walls and an open coal fire for chilly evenings. The compact kitchen will satisfy your urge to cook, so once dinner is prepared, all you’ll have to worry about is uncorking the wine. There is an attractive seating area outside your property for al fresco drinks, and you are welcome to stroll through the beautiful, shared garden to appreciate the views. The cottage is equipped with a cosy double bedroom and a bathroom, and there’s a useful sofa bed to sleep any additional guests if needed.

Grab your comfiest walking boots and set off to clamour over dry-stone walls and follow the various trails through Bradfield Dale. A chain of reservoirs offers an attractive backdrop for your explorations, starting with a muddy circular walk around the Dale Dike Reservoir 3 miles away. High Bradfield is one of two historic villages with eerie relics including the earthworks of a motte-and-bailey castle and an ancient church, whilst Low Bradfield boasts a brilliant recreation ground that’s a haven for picnics. Culture vultures will enjoy a change of pace with a visit to vibrant Sheffield 12 miles away, where there are oodles of restaurants to tempt your taste buds.

A lovely, v well-equipped, cosy cottage. Just right for two guests. Hosts extremely welcoming and will help in any way they can. Good location for Peak District exploration and Sheffield. Wi-Fi better than expected - took a Firestick which worked well.

A fantastic property in an enviable location. Fabulous views and so quiet, other than bird song and sheep baaing. A small but well equipped kitchen area, capable of cooking any meal you desire. The bed was comfortable. Simply but nicely decorated. The open fire looked great, although we did not have to use it, it being summer. A brilliant location Read morefor walking and cycling (if you are ready for hills!) With short or long walks straight from the door. Also Sheffield is just a short drive away. Hide
