Ollerbrook Cottages


Quirky with a mix of modern and vintage finds; stunning views all round and a hop from the glorious Pennine Way


8 beds


7 bedrooms


Sleeps 8


Tucked into the very lovely vale of Edale, a pair of exceptional stone cottages done up in fresh contemporary style. Come for rest and relaxation: the views are stunning, the peace is a balm. Inside are beamed ceilings, stone walls, deep-set windows, log fires, and luxurious towels in sparkling bathrooms – what more could you want? The feel is quirky with a mix of modern and vintage finds, the furniture is stylish and comfortable, and the fresh flowers, throws, books, DVDs and games add a deliciously friendly feel. Downstairs space in Curlew is open-plan while both have traditional country kitchens; bedrooms are upstairs, smallish but with warm colours, gentle lighting, great views and top-notch linen. You could spend the whole day at glorious Chatsworth, or potter in charming Bakewell and Buxton. Bring your hiking boots for the Derbyshire peaks; walks start from the door. Return to a glass of wine in your tree-sheltered cottage garden as the children play in the paddock. Lovely owners Keith and Jenny live next door, and tuck freshly baked scones or a cake into your welcome basket.

I have stayed in all three of the cottages at Ollerbrook on various occasions and they are absolutely idyllic. Each has its individual character but the quality of the furnishings is consistently excellent - a really lovely balance of luxury and cosiness with great attention to detail.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Keith & Jenny Silva

  • Listed as one of 'The Sunday Times' top one hundred cool places to stay in the UK (2012). These stunning cottages are located in one of the most peaceful and idyllic locations in the country, perfect for birdwatching, walking or simply unwinding.
  • Bakewell, Chatsworth House, Hardwick Hall, Lyme Park and Haddon Hall are all within a 40-minute drive. Lyme Park, famous for its deer park is ‘home’ to Mr Darcy in Pride and Prejudice. Haddon Hall has been used in many film locations, including Jane Eyre.
  • Delicious locally produced meat is available from Watson's, our prize-winning local farm shop. Spa and pool facilities at nearby local hotel by arrangement with the hotel. Cycle hire, with 'to the door delivery' by arrangement. Local active sports guide.
  • Ollerbrook is a short distance from the start of the Pennine Way. There are spectacular walks and sites in the Peak District - Kinder Scout, the highest point in the Peak District, Stanedge Edge and Ladybower & Derwent Reservoirs (Famous for The Dambusters
  • All the cottages are decorated with individuality and a flair that enhances their character whilst providing guests with all the cosy comfort and quality expected from a Sawday's property, including full central heating and open fires.
  • Why not visit Winnats Pass, famous for its caverns, which is just over the hill? Then visit pretty Castleton with its teashops, shops and quaint buildings. Who know, you could stumble across a film crew on location for the next series of 'The Village'!
