About the property

Located down Brosterfield's long drive, overlooking the picturesque views of the Peak District, you'll find this beautifully furnished cottage.

Overlooking the breathtaking views of the Peak District’s crazing cattle and rolling hills is the beautiful Brosterfield Cottage. Furnished to create a traditional homely feel to make your stay here as pleasurable as can be.

Described in the Peak Park Tourist Guide as being one of the prettiest villages in the Peak District, Foolow really is the perfect place to immerse yourself in the traditional beauty of the English countryside.

Brosterfield Cottage is a beautifully restored farm building, filled with its traditional features and charm.

The open plan kitchen and living area is the perfect place to have a quiet night in, cooking up a feast in the quipped kitchen and relaxing on the comfy sofas after a long day of roaming the Peaks.

At the end of the day sink into the cosy cotton sheets and deep mattress of the kingsized bed, looking out of the window onto the breathtaking views down the valley. Also upstairs is a modern en-suite bath and shower room.

There is a lovely little lawned garden area to the side of the cottage and the garden seating with table at the front of the cottage is perfect for soaking up those picturesque views of the Great British Countryside.

Guests are also free to enjoy Brosterfield Hall's eight acres of fields opposite cottage, which supplies plenty of room to let your kids and pets run free safely. Or the more adventurous there are plenty of short and long walks from our cottage door.

There is private parking directly outside the cottage.

About Olivia Molyneux

Brosterfield Cottage is owned by the lovely Rodger & Jenny Vickers who both recently retired and live next door in Brosterfield Hall. The cottage is now managed by me - Liv, and my parents - Stephen & Penny Molyneux. We also own and run the Brosterfield Farm holiday cottages next door.

I have lived in the Peak District my whole life and spent the latter part of my childhood living in the Brosterfield Farm Farmhouse next door to Brosterfield Cottage. I love everything about Brosterfield and it was truly an idilic setting to grow up.

I hope you make many happy memories holidaying here just as I have.

Olivia Molyneux purchased this cottage in 1980

Why Olivia Molyneux chose Derbyshire Dales

Brosterfield Cottage is located in the lovely countryside village of Foolow. Just a short stroll into the centre of the village you'll find the local duck pond, village green and local pub.

Pubs:

If you're after tradition pub grub, a warming atmosphere, good ales and a friendly landlord the Bulls Head is the perfect place.

The famed "Barrel" at Bretton is also a must, enjoy a good traditional ale overlooking to breathtaking views down the valley above Foolow.

Shops:

Around 1.5 miles away in Eyam, is the closest village shop to Brosterfield.

A short 3 miles down the road to Calver Cross Roads, you can find local farmer's produce as well as all the big brands products.

Bakewell is the nearest market town with loads of local and well known shops and holds a weekly market very Monday.

Sheffield and Chesterfield are each only half an hour’s drive away. Manchester is easily accessed by both road and local train stations, which about an hour away by rail.

Spotless very well appointed cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had three wonderful days in Foolow with our black Labrador.

The cottage itself was perfect with everything you could ask for and information in abundance (walks galore).

The local pub/restaurant, the Bulls Head was great and dog friendly.

All in all just the break we needed.

The cottage was beautifully maintained and very comfortable. Everything worked well and we appreciated the wifi. Lots of little extras. Delicious eggs! Good selection of books on local walks which we really appreciated and used. Friendly owners. Lovely views. Very enjoyable week. Kay Reid.

Another wonderful short break in the Peak District

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful little cottage in a great setting with lovely views from the front. Lots of great walks nearby with the Bulls Head in Foolow within easy walking distance. Great location for a couple with dogs; our two black Labs can run free without us worrying about traffic.

Tony Wellington

All in all a great little cottage. We have already booked again for next year.

A great week

  • 5 of 5

A lovely little cottage in a superb rural position with great views - well situated for local attractions. The owners live next door and couldn't have been more accommodating.

If one were to look for any criticism (and you would have to look hard!) you could say that some of the decor / furnishings were getting a little dated, but this has to be viewed in the context of the price, and its great value for money.

It more than met our expectations, we had a great week (despite snow !!) and would be delighted to return.

Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

Made a late booking for this accommodation and what a surprise when we arrived. Before even entering the cottage it took time for us to take in the wonderful view and the serenity of the location. Having taken that in we entered the cottage and although compact it was very clean, welcoming and included everything we needed for our short stay. The most stunning thing for me was opening the bedroom curtains in the morning with the sun shining highlighting the wonderful view. Not forgetting our Cocker Spaniel Lulu who had the whole run of the fields available to use up some of her never ending energy. Lastly not forgetting the owners who were very friendly and helpful and all times. Certainly a cottage we will recommend to friends and book again but hopefully not to many people will find out about it as we will never be able to find a vacant week.
