A lovely place to stay, spotlessly clean, well equipped, very convenient for exploring derbyshire. We loved the big bathroom and the open living space. Comfortable bedrooms, though a little noisy if you’re not used to traffic or cockerels! great value for six..we’ve paid more for two! Phil from Carnforth (19 October 2018)
Excellent location bakery exceptional village store accommodating very helpful friendly owners amazing top rate chicken eggs next door. All in all most satisfactory experience Judith from Rutland (12 October 2018)
Thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at swallow's nest located in the beautiful peak district with lots of picturesque scenery in all directions. the apartment was tastefully decorated, it felt like home with a great bath, shower and comfortable beds. great value for money, can highly recommend. Nicola from Stoke-On-Trent (17 September 2018)
Great little apartment but rather noisy day and night as it is set on a main road. Parking space is small and the shared access via the parking space can make it awkward to park. The neighbour has chickens and the cocks love to sing from about 4am. we did have a fabulous time & the host was very helpful with knowledge of the area, however we would not stay again purely because after a day out hiking we were unable to sleep through the night because of the traffic noise/the chickens. Angela from Caerphilly (15 June 2018)
The apartment has been furnished to a very good standard with quality furnishings. Kitchen is well equipped. Good local shops with friendly staff. Good wi fi and tv signal. Things that need to be improved are water pressure as bath takes ages to fill and shower is not very powerfull. Outside space also needs a good makeover to match inside space. Mr Welch from Watford (01 June 2018)
Great location for walking, and convenient for extended hours co-op. 4 pubs in village, and we had a lovely meal at the shoulder of mutton. Kitchen is really well equipped, with nice touches like lots of tea towels, and an oven glove. Plenty of crockery and cutlery, which makes for environmentally friendly use of the dishwasher. Nice beds, heating fine, good shower/bathroom. Games and dvds. The only possible downside would be that the off street car parking is a bit tight.. we had a small car, and it was not problem. Candice from Iom (12 March 2018)
The cottage is two floors and had great views which were spectacular in the snow, and the icicles from the roof looked unreal. I also liked the fact there were more than enough plates, and ovenware - I hate it when it is assumed you won't cook, or need more than one plate each! (the fan oven is a bit noisy though). . although we liked the space and location we did not pick the best time to visit because of the snow, as the village had recently been cut off the co op was a little low on supplies and most of the other small shops were not open; but it was very picturesque and at another time we would have enjoyed to spend more time there. . . we had an issue with the heating whilst we were staying here, but the owners came out and sorted it, twice, for us immediately and without fuss. . . of note, is there is wifi in the cottage but you have to go to the surgery downstairs for the code, and as we were only there for a weekend we were unable to do so, as it was closed. not a major problem but inconvenient as we wanted to get snow forecasts. . . location great, cottage lovely, but I think we picked the wrong time for this one unfortunately. Jude from Hitchin (05 March 2018)
Very nice accommodation, clean and well provided. A perfect spot to explore te peak district; within short distance of many things to do and with lots of possibilities for walking. Very relaxing.. Customer 8 from Utrecht (The Netherlands) (28 July 2017)
It was an amazing stay all around. A lovely flat, really comfortable. Recommended without reservation. Confirmed Guest (27 June 2017)
I realy likes this place. Umar from Sheffield (24 January 2017)
The apartment was well equipped and the seating comfortable for the two of us but the towels provided were very damp and had to be tumbled before we could use them. We used the double bedroom at the top of the house because the biggest room downstairs was right beside the road. It was comfortable up there and it did help to lessen the road noise.reversing out of the parking spot was very difficult if there were cars parked on the road opposite and someone to watch the traffic is essential. We contacted the owner because the heated floor in the bathroom wasn't working and the radiators throughout were not working properly,he responded promptly and sorted out the floor but said the heating system was working as it should be but we never felt properly warm and the bathroom was quite chilly because the heated towel rail didn't heat up as it was part of the central heating system. The apartment was in a great spot in the village, central to pubs and amenities and ideal for short drives to walks in either the dark peak or the white peak but we will find somewhere warmer for our next october visit. Sue from Lincoln (21 October 2016)
Spotlessly clean, everything you need, stylishly decorated, cosy and comfortable. Wi fi connection great, and mobile phone reception better than expected. Only downside would be the noise from trucks travelling through the village at night, upstairs bedrooms much quieter so not a problem if like us you only need 2 bedrooms. Confirmed Guest (06 October 2016)
Good clean,well equipped accommodation in a good location. Lesley from Stockton- On - Tees (03 October 2016)
The cottage was a good size and decorated really nicely with all the appliances and entertainment we needed. Mobile phone signal was extremely patchy but the wifi was perfect. All local amenities we needed were on the door step with a lovely local bakery. We would definitely return. Confirmed Guest (09 September 2016)
A lovely spacious apartment; good shops in the village; just a short drive from excellent walking and near the monsal trail for biking. John from Calne (19 August 2016)
Wifi worked well. Beautiful setting. Timed our holiday well and coincided with carnival week. Fresh eggs from trevor next door were a bonus. Diana from Edinburgh (05 August 2016)
Swallow's nest is a comfortable and well equipped holiday home. it is situated in a good location although it is on a main road so suffers from traffic noise, particularly noticeable in the early morning. Dee from Kettering (10 June 2016)
Overall a great place decorated to an exceptionally high standard. The facilities were brilliant with the exception of the wifi provided which doesn't work. The only improvement recommended would be to install soft closing doors on the doctors surgery below as the banging of them closing at 8am does wake up those sleeping in the master bedroom. Otherwise a fantastic holiday in a great location Catherine from Suffolk (27 May 2016)
This was the perfect place to base yourself for walks in the peaks. It was a lovely cottage, we were so relaxed. It was very comfortable and the children loved having the upstairs to themselves. With the coop just across the road ( and yummy chip shop) just a few doors away we certainly weren't going to go hungry. We all wanted to stay longer. Thank you and we would return in a heartbeat x Louise from Christchurch (19 February 2016)
Very good accommodation for up to 6 adults. . parking challenging but ok if assistance to hand. Roger from Cambridge (15 February 2016)
Lovely property, very nicely furnished and great value. Owners were helpful and replied quickly when contacted. Would definitely recommend. Jon from Sidcup (04 January 2016)
We enjoyed a weekend in this property. The flat has been done to a high spec, with good kitchen facilities and lovely bathroom. Only downsides were - not enough 'comfy' seating for six adults, there is only one sofa, could have done with a couple of arm chairs so people didn't have to sit on the floor. No bin bags & one roll of loo paper, we didn't really want to go amenity shopping when only there for two nights. Upstairs beds were quite uncomfortable, but downstairs bed was lovely. Quiet, good location, nice garden. Would come back again, good value for money. Sarah from London (09 November 2015)
This spacious but cosy let, was ideally situated for a few days in the peak district. We have two children who loved having a room each and being in a village with not one but two play areas. The kitchen is very well stocked and the open planned living area is perfect for families. The weather had recently become autumnal and we were pleased that the heating was more than adequate at keeping the place warm. All of the rooms were very well presented and the addition of bubble bath in spacious bathroom was very welcome after a long day of walking. This is a lovely let and we will no doubt make use of it again. Jo from Loughborough (20 October 2015)
Although tastefully fitted out and furnished the traffic noise from the road made quiet enjoyment of this property impossible mostly noticeably 5am when the local haulage business seemed to commence its daily activities. the allocated car parking space is particularly problematic due to narrowness of opening and the on- street parking the other side of the road. Surprised a hair drier was provided Anthony from Dereham (02 October 2015)
This is the second time staying at swallow's nest and we loved it as much this time as the first time. the only negative, if you can call it that, is the access to the apartment. if you are like me and pack as if you're going away for a month, it's quite a struggle to get your luggage upstairs. great for families with older children and adults - not so suitable for young children or people who are less mobile. the village of bradwell has enough amenities to keep you going with a co-op, fish & chip shop and local pubs serving food. castleton isn't far away if you want gift shops, cafes, more pubs and of course the famous caverns, peveril castle and spectacular walks for the more adventurous. bradwell is a good central base for the peak district and the locals certainly make you feel welcome. swallow's nest is a lovely, comfortable modern apartment that oozes character and warmth. perfect for using as a base as it has everything you want for a self-catering holiday home in a good location and if you just want to chill out at home it is great for that too. both times we have stayed it has been spotlessly clean and I love the little touches of the cookies and bubble bath. the beds are all very comfortable - it can be quite a strain to force yourself out in the morning to make the most of the gorgeous peak district. the only reason we may not be back in 2016 is because we will be holidaying with friends, but my sons have already said they want to go back in 2017! April from Ipswich (28 August 2015)
Very satisfied, wi-fi intermittent Kevan from Ampthill (21 August 2015)
A nicely furbished, spacious apartment in a quiet, untouristy village with easy access to everything you need/would want to visit. Very well equipped and modern appliances. Some extra nice touches that were unexpected. Comfy beds and lovely bathroom. Would have been even better if dishwasher tablets and toilet roll were provided. Confirmed Guest (07 August 2015)
Clean & comfortable ,low cellings in upstairs bedrooms easy to bump your head. Yvonne from Norwich (11 May 2015)
Lovely setting and beautiful views. All we needed was in the apartment. Wonderful! Kelly from Southampton (17 April 2015)
A lovely spacious 2 floor flat above a quiet gp surgery in this non-touristy village. Beautifully decorated and furnished and very well equipped with everything you need for a family holiday. The shelves of games and books for children are a really nice touch. Very convenient well-stocked co-op mini-market just across the road with a good range of food (including a range of chilled white wines!). several fair pubs within a 5-10 minute walk serving good food at reasonable prices. Also the more up-scale samuel fox restaurant. A good location as a base for walking and other activities a short drive away. . . note that bradwell is a working village with some industry, so is not as picturesque (or touristy) as nearby castleton, for example. There is a fair amount of traffic through the village, including trucks and buses, so if you're looking for complete peace and quiet, this may not be the place for you. Also note that the off-road parking is quite tight, and during our stay, we parked just across the road. . that said, for convenience in terms of shops and pubs, plus a good base location, and a high standard of accommodation, swallow's nest is very good indeed. Jeremy from Woodbridge (03 April 2015)
We stayed for a week with our son, his partner and their boys aged 18 months and 5 months. The apartment was spotless and very comfortable. After a day out it was great to return to a warm home and relax in the luxury bathroom. There is a co-op very close by which was very handy. There are excellent walks from the property. We would all like to return in the summer to enjoy the garden (with a bbq) which has stunning views. Alison (20 February 2015)
Well equipped and very clean in a nice village with good amenities in village, po, co-op, chip shop, bakery, pubs etc. Unfortunately due to high volume of traffic, particularly commercial hgv, and close proximity to traffic lights road noise is a problem. Also doctors surgery below fitted with door closers not of the soft close type so continual door slamming throughout opening hours not conducive to relaxing atmosphere. Finally access to property via extremely steep internal stairs or by external steel spiral stairs certainly not the easiest or most pleasant Martin from St Austell (17 October 2014)
