Rowan Cottage

Sheffield, Yorkshire

A light and bright converted milking parlour with views, modern bedrooms, squishy sofas, lots of books and games, BBQ hut and shared hot tub


4 places


Sleeping from 2 – 6


A stunning spot, right on the edge of the Peaks. Charming owners Jim and Mary, who live here, have done a grand job converting four cottages, including your listed milking parlour. The sitting room is carpeted and flooded with light, the feel is solid and homely, and a wooden stair leads to the first floor. Walls are a calming neutral, one picked out in deep red, sofas are of the completely squishy variety, views are glorious, and games, books and DVDs keep everyone happy. You sleep in cosy, contemporary bedrooms with pretty rafters and exposed stone walls; woollen rugs top feather duvets; there are deep-set windows and more heavenly views. The upstairs bathroom is beautifully tiled, and there’s an extra wet room downstairs. The kitchen is filled with all you need for a leisurely supper round the farmhouse table, or a picnic by the barbecue hut outside. A biomass boiler gives you piping hot water, powerful showers and underfloor heating. A hot tub under the stars is shared with the other cottages, and there’s a Day Spa onsite too. The feel is deeply rural, yet Bakewell and Buxton are an easy drive for festivals, fairs, Georgian architecture.

We stayed in Bramble cottage for five days. We arrived on a wet and windy Yorkshire evening and the cottage was ''a port in a storm"'. It is very warm, quiet and comfortable. The cottage is larger than it looks on the website. The kitchen is well equipped and sofa was very comfortable. Our bed, and the quality of linen/towels was excellent. We enjoyed coming back to this lovely cottage.
