“A gem of a cottage nestled in wonderful countryside”
Reviewed 11 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

person found this review helpful

We have just returned from a long weekend at Broadhay and could not have been happier with every aspect of our stay. Claire was wonderfully warm and welcoming and we were delighted to find that Broadhay ("Grandma's cottage") was beautifully kitted out with everything we needed. The kitchen is very well equipped. It is a substantial property(much bigger than the photos might suggest) decorated tastefully with some really charming touches. We live in a very old farmhouse ourselves and love quirky features, beams and interesting nooks and crannies. Claire clearly has an admirable attention to detail and the property was spick and span. It is clear that this farmhouse is part of the Bramhall's family heritage and we felt as if we were privileged to be staying in a much loved family home. We were also captivated by the rare breed sheep (zwartbles) I am sure we could have hand fed them, they were so tame and friendly. We would love to return. Thank you so much Claire, for being a part of making my significant decade celebration weekend such a success. We had a splendid time.

“Great location to explore the Peak District”
Reviewed 2 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We travelled as an extended family of 6 and found Broadhay an excellent place to stay for half term.
Claire and Andrew were very welcoming and helpful during our stay.
The photos on here really don't do the room size justice. The reception rooms and bedrooms are all spacious. The kitchen is low-ceilinged for tall people but very clean and has everything needed including washing machine and dishwasher. Beds were probably the most comfortable we have had at a rental property.

Despite being a cold week, the heating system warmed the house up quickly when needed and it felt cosy. The hard floors throughout the downstairs made it easy to clean up after ourselves in the wet weather.

We managed to do a couple of walks direct from the cottage itself and Castleton and other key towns are all within a 15 minute or so drive.

Didn't manage to get time to do archery or shooting unfortunately, but we will be back!

“Great little spot”
Reviewed 20 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We thought this place was great. Stayed there as a group of forty something girlfriends. The location is perfect on a working farm in a secluded location whilst still walkable (about 20 minutes) to hathersage. Owners emailed beforehand with easy to follow directions and were very welcoming on arrival.
The cottage is spacious and actually is much bigger than the photos on the website do it justice. It was warm and cosy and absolutely spotless. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and everything was in working order.
Loads of lovely walks on the doorstep and the plough pub at the bottom of the lane does great food if you don't feel like cooking.

All in all a good value, well positioned property. The only slight downside (though I am being picky) was that the main bathroom was on ground level so a bit of a pain if you have to get up for a pee in the night and could do with a bit of a makeover.

Would recommend this place for a group of friends or a family who enjoy the beautiful Peak District. I would definitely go back

“Dirty, unsafe and a faulty dishwasher”
Reviewed 8 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015
2
people found this review helpful

On arrival the dishwasher was not working. An engineer arrived three and a half days after our arrival. He had been called to fix the same problem before and told the owner he would need to order a new part. A previous guest review in their visitor book stated they had problems with the dishwasher too. We were told on arrival to clean the property before we left, yet when we opened the cutlery drawer it was filthy. The bedroom furniture and floors were dusty and dirty, having not been cleaned for some time. The washbasins had not been cleaned around or behind the taps. The plumbing also needs repair as the hot taps all hiss and splatter water as soon as you turn them on. Our daughter fell over several times due to the cover rail between two rooms which needs to be replaced (see photos). The garden is full of nettle bushes which meant the children could not play outside as they were stung. The clothes lines is tangled in briars which meant a third of it was inaccessible and I was stung hanging up washing. Our daughter broke a bowl which we informed them of immediately and paid the £30 for a replacement. On the way home we received a 'phone call from them accusing us of ruining their towels and breaking breakfast bowls and demanding payment for replacements. Several of their breakfast bowls were chipped on our arrival and should not have been there.

Thank you for your feedback. We're really sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay at Broadhay, but can see that our customer services team have been in touch with you to discuss this further. The owner has repaired the dishwasher (for the second time), the cover rail and removed the nettles. They have also replaced the clothes line with a rotary dryer. Thank you once again - Sykes Cottages.
