Beautiful cottage. Stunning location. Cottage has everything you could possibly need. Sara was very helpful showing us on a map walks we could take our dog on. We are already planning to come back next year.
We had a lovely week at Curlew Cottage, we have to say that it is the nicest cottage that we have stayed in. A lovely welcome from Sara upon our arrival, there was also a welcome basket of local produce and fresh flowers which was such a nice touch and much appreciated we would not hesitate to come and stay again there is a lot to do in the area
The apartment was clean and cozy. It's a one-story building, so there's no noise from people upstairs. I only rarely heard the person staying in the adjoining apartment. The windows look out to a paved courtyard on one side, and a lawn/yard/childrens-play-set on the other side. There are chickens around outside, so it's useful to have a flashlight (torch) to watch one's step at night to avoid droppings.
I could only get weak cellphone signals in the cottage, and couldn't get a reliable wi-fi signal. I got good cellphone reception a few minute's walk up Peak Pits Lane from the cottage.
The owners were very friendly and helpful, and were kind enough to pick me up at Sheffield train station when I arrived, and take me back there when I departed. If you don't have a car, Peak Pits Farm is a steep 30-40 minute walk uphill from High Bradfield. If you're physically fit it's a great walk, with panoramic views of the valley as you climb the hill. (It might be a difficult walk if there's snow or ice.) There is a twice/hour bus service from High Bradfield to/from Sheffield, connecting with the Sheffield Supertram. (Unfortunately the bus was sometimes not that punctual.)
A tip: cars often drive very fast on the narrow (1-lane) roads, so it's good to wear a bright-color reflective vest if you're walking, and step off the road onto the grass when a car approaches. A torch is also very useful at night -- this is a rural area with no street lighting.
