Property Description

Holiday home
This sympathetically restored, semi-detached stone barn is in the delightful hamlet of Ollerbrook only 10 minutes walk from Edale. It is on the owner's working sheep farm and offers a high standard of accommodation that retains many of its original features. The living accommodation is bright and spacious and on open plan, the lovely kitchen is well fitted and both the dining area and comfortable, cosy sitting room has the original beams and the outlook from the windows is stunning. There are two bedrooms, both affording a tranquil atmosphere and the shower room is fresh and bright. Outside there is a lovely patio area with a shared barbecue and garden furniture, and for outside games, a shared paddock. This is a great property for a family holiday all year round.

Accomodation Details
Two bedrooms: 1 x king-size double, 1 x twin (zip & link beds - can be made into double on request). Shower room with shower, basin & WC. Ground floor WC/basin. Open plan living area with fitted kitchen, dining area & sitting area.

The lovely High Peaks village of Edale is the start of the Pennine way and liesat the foot of Kinder Scout. It has two pubs, and one of them, The Nags Head, is usually accepted as the start of The Pennine Way walk. With credentials like these it's little wonder that the area attracts so many walkers, and they won't be disappointed. The village has a general store combined with a post office and a Moorland Visitor Centre. Castleton is only four miles away and is a village that has something for everyone, a ruined Norman Castle, Blue John caves and all under the auspicious gaze of Mam Tor, "The Shivering Mountain." All in all the charming village of Edale is a fabulous holiday location.

Self-Catering Reviews

Mr Kean
April 2019
Excellent accommodation and friendly owners .. Ideally situated for walking direct from the cottage. Two public houses also in walking distance..Very enjoyable holiday particularly since it was lambing time on the farm and great weather.
Mrs Elliot
February 2019
Warm and cosy, all mod cons, comfy beds, easy walk to the famous Nag's Head and an ideal base for walks on Kinder Scout, over to Castleton etc.. Helpful owners, perfect holiday!
Mrs Wiggs
October 2018
The cottage is very comfortable for a couple who share the front bedroom with the King Sized bed.. There was everything we needed, comfortable sofas, large walk in shower, well equipped and beautiful views. For a couple we would certainly recommend it. However, the second bedroom with twin beds, is quite small and has little windows that are so high up that even the tallest person would need to stand on a chair to look out. We could find no way to open them. We did not need the room to sleep in, but if we had, with the door shut it would feel very claustrophobic.
Mr Kostka

I booked through Booking.. Com so there was a general confusion between them, Sykes and the property owner who did not receive the correct information from me, regarding members of my party and our arrival time. That said, the cottage was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The farm and cottages are in a perfect location for walking and the owners are friendly and helpful. I spent some of the time alone there and felt safe and secure.
Mrs Hughes

This cottage is possibly the best we have ever stayed in, in almost 30 years of self catering cottages.. As well as items stated in the brochure the owner provided additional items such as all disposable household items e.g. toilet tissue, kitchen paper, tissues, hand wash. In all, a most enjoyable holiday with lovely views across the valley to Mam Tor.
Mr Cowling
July 2018
An excellent cottage which had everything you could ask for.. The hosts were excellent and helpful. The location was excellent for us, quiet and peaceful but also interesting being on a working sheep farm.
Mr Heaney
June 2018
A lovely cottage with stunning views the owner is on site and very friendly and helpful All the ingredients for a perfect break.. We would have no reservation about returning Sykes kept us fully informed and even sent a places to see guide SUPERB
Ms Greenhalgh

Cottage could not have been more comfortable.. We felt looked after with how much thought went into equipping and preparing the cottage, and then looked after practically with help and advice to get us away through the snow! Weather meant we couldn't really make most of the beautiful location, so caverns were useful trip out, as was the short walk to the pubs in Edale.
November 2017
We stayed with along with friends who had booked the cottage for a long weekend in which we wanted to do some walking in the peak district and to visit their son who has just moved to Sheffield. Edale is the perfect location for both with Sheffield a 30 minute train journey away and Kinder Scout on your doorstep. The instructions for finding the cottage were completely clear and we found it first time, in the dark. The cottage is very well equipped for self catering, a great size for two couples (two toilets help) and is a 10-15 minute walk from two pubs, the station and the start of the Pennine way. The bedrooms are a decent size, the bedding and towels are of excellent quality and the amount of hot water and power of the shower was first rate. All in all a great cottage, would love to come back again soon - maybe in late spring next time.
November 2017
Sally contacted us a few days before our visit to let us know that we'd be staying in the adjacent Meadow View cottage instead, which was an upgrade in terms of space.. So I don't have experience of the Midfeather Cottage, but I am confident that it and the others in this cluster will all be excellent, judging by the standard of Meadow View and the caring and thorough nature of the owners. The cottage was lovely and clean, well-equipped, comfortable and warm. The location is fantastic, we were able to get the train to nearby Edale station and walk (about fifteen minutes) to the cottage, so no need for a car. From there you're basically at the start of the Pennine way and across the valley are several lovely peaks with plenty of walking routes. The views are superb, we'll be hoping to come back. Only small thing is to note there is a discrepancy between the arrival/check-in time stated on different emails from Sykes. That didn't affect us in the end, but is worth checking if you're on a tight schedule.
Mrs Manners
September 2017
The cottage makes an ideal base for exploring the surrounding countryside.. It is well equipped and comfortable.
August 2017
We've stayed in these cottages for a few years now and have really enjoyed them. This year we stayed in Midfeather Cottage which is well appointed, comfortable and has everything we need. The owners cannot do enough to be helpful. The views are stunning from the cottage and you can do an amazing walk every day from the front door. We have already booked a cottage here for next year.
August 2017
Fantastic location (we had no car and yet managed - not far from the station in wonderful countryside and the cottage was well equipped and really comfortable..
Mr New
May 2017
Good quality accommodation, location good for nearby trail walking and day trips out..
Mr Bancroft
June 2016
The cottage was in an excellent condition and immaculate which made a great impression from the start of the holiday. The owners of the cottages were always very pleasant and sociable making it a pleasure to stay in their farm.
Mr Hindry
April 2016
Absolutely loved this cottage, it's set in a beautiful location, with lots of walks nearby. Will definitely be back.
Mr Page
March 2016
A superbly equipped cottage decorated to a very high standard. The owners were superb and couldn't do enough for us. We had a brilliant holiday and would recommend Midfeather to anyone visiting the Peak District.
Mr Holloway
January 2016
The cottage had everything that you could possibly need and the area was fantastic. It was also spotlessly clean - highly recommended.
Mr Payne
December 2015
We all very much enjoyed our visit; the cottage was perfect for us in terms of layout as it lent itself perfectly to cooking and socialising. The dishwasher made a massive difference too. The bedrooms were a nice size and very comfortable. The property was surrounded by stunning countryside and the owners were very friendly and available if we needed them. We will definitely go back one day.
Mr Shaw
June 2015
We have been taking cottage holidays for the past 20years and this has to be one of the cleanest and with the highest standard of furnishings that we have been to. The property had the wow factor as soon as we opened the front door. The owner was helpful without being intrusive and was there when needed. 10 out of 10.
June 2015
If you are looking for a cottage in the ideal location to explore the peaks this is it, the owner has thought of everything, it was spotless on arrival with good wi fi and it gets 5 stars for the quality of everything in the cottage. We have been having cottage holidays for over 20 years and are quite picky but this is up with the best of them
Mr Clarke
March 2015
The general location of the cottage is great for walking direct from the door. The owner is very friendly and helpful and keeps the cottage in a first rate condition. We have already decided that if possible we will return later in the year.
Mr Young
January 2015
Midfeather Cottage provided our family with a great location to relax, complete with wonderful views very friendly helpful owners. We will certainly be booking again later this year, recommend this location to anyone looking for a nice quiet place to relax.
January 2015
Out of the way but in the right place for a great walking holiday. The cottage was excellent, everything you could need. Will be back again.
Mrs Lee
November 2014
Great property set in stunning countryside. A good base for walking locally and within easy reach of other attractions by short car journeys. Midfeather is a lovely, warm and comfortable cottage to return to during the colder weather. It's a very well equipped cottage run by lovely hosts.
Mr Bough
July 2014
Really nice quiet location..a great place to chill for a week.
Miss Brown
July 2014
A lovely cottage in a stunning location. Completely quiet and peaceful, away from roads, beautiful views and great walks from the door. We had a wonderful time here and Midfeather Cottage is one of the best holiday cottages we've ever rented.
Mrs Smith
May 2014
Very friendly, helpful owner. The property was up a little track, away from it all, just the sound of bleating sheep in the morning, really relaxing.
Mrs Wood
November 2013
Lovely accommodation, everywhere clean and spotless. The children loved the feel of being on the farm. We rented both cottages so the whole family could be together; it was brilliant!
Mr Sharpley
July 2013
Exceptional quality of equipment and cleanliness. You could not ask for better. Amazing situation for a walking holiday. Very pleasant and helpful landlady.
Mr Staples
June 2013
The location was excellent and the views were awesome. It was a relaxing location on a working farm and the owners were friendly and helpful. The cottage was excellent with all amenities required. The perfect place to enjoy all that the Peak District has to offer.
May 2013
Best location for hiking around Edale, great food in Edale's pub. Accomodation provides everything for cooking your own hot meals after a day long ramble, very pleasant, comfortable. Only downside was the old wooden doors of the rooms that made a lot of noise when opened or shut...if you managed to shut it, that is. But the doors did add to the character of the property.Dont know what the garden is all about...the two square metres paved at the front?or the entire farm which is great
Miss Enderby
March 2013
Surpassed our expectations in every way.
Mrs Cuthbert
February 2013
The thoughtfulness of the owner. The peace and tranquillity of the location.
December 2012
Owners very good without being intrusive. Superbly converted cottage on a working farm. Very well equipped and in an excellent location. Within 10 minutes walk to the village pub and shop. There was nothing to dislike - only the weather during the week we were there! We certainly recommend Midfeather Cottage, and look forward to staying there again.
November 2012
Decent, good value property in a great location. Lovely bedding!
Mrs Harbord
October 2012
Superb cottage in an excellent location!
Mrs Farrell
July 2012
We loved the setting - beautiful scenery. A quiet hamlet but walkers kept it from feeling too isolated. We loved the drive down from the top road. The cottage was comfortable and had a well equipped kitchen.
Mrs Hooker
April 2012
Midfeather Cottage was beautiful, very clean, well equipped, warm with plenty of hot water, a powerful shower, comfortable beds and furniture and all equipment working well. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The location is amazing with walking straight from the door, wonderful views and plenty to do and see in the area. We intend to return and would highly recommend it to friends and family. Sykes were efficient and the booking process was simple and hassle-free. Thank you!
Mrs McVey
November 2011
The location of the cottage was perfect for the walking we wanted to do and for touring the area. It was also peaceful and quiet with lovely views. It was warm and cosy too.
Mr Bowler
November 2011
Excellent small cottage in a fantastic location for exploring the High Peaks. Good walks straight from the door. Owner was friendly and welcoming. Edale village is only a short walk across the fields with 2 good pubs.
September 2011
Me, my husband and my parents have just arrived home from our one week stay at Midfeather. Well what can i say, most definately one of the best holidays we ever had.The cottage itself is beautiful and finished to an extremely high standard and was equiped with everything you could possibly need. Its also spotlessly clean and very cosy (just perfect for relaxing after a long day hiking up the dales!) Just a short and very pleasant walk through the fields is the lovely country pub The Nags Head. Just remember to take a good torch for the walk home through the fields, as its pitch black! Owners are very lovely and helpful. All in all, fab location and accomodation. Cant wait to return next year as we are already missing waking up to nothing more than the sound of the odd sheep talking!!
Miss Langley
August 2011
The barn conversion was very roomy. The kitchen within the living room worked very well and the bedrooms had lovely high ceilings. There was washing up liquid, dishwashing tablets, jay cloths and plenty of toilet rolls. The lighting was very good throughout the cottage. Excellent facilities.
Mrs Titman
June 2011
We had a lovely few days in the peace and quiet with a short walk to the pub. Wonderful!
June 2011
We recently stayed in the cottage for three nights and were delighted by the location, cleanliness and facilities. The kitchen facilities and utensils were excellent and included everything we could have possibly needed. The cottage was very clean and tidy and the games and wifi were a lovely touch and not expected. The only downside is that the second, smaller bedroom is a little compact and may not be suitable for very young children or an adult couple. There is rather a lot of furniture in the room which makes it a little cramped and that meant I had to put my suitcase in the hall unless I wanted to unpack (although as I was there for such a short time I didn't really see the point!) As there is a lot of storage in other parts of the property I would recommend taking out some of the additional chest of drawers to make the room more spacious. The real selling point of this property is the location. Edale is a beautiful village and the cottage is just far enough away to feel remote. We did some fantastic walks straight from the cottage and then came home to a really comfortable bed. Would def return.
Mrs Mellersh
May 2011
Magnificent scenery, cottage situated at end of the road without being too isolated. Friendly host next door and lovely farm setting (barn of lambs next to us). A beautifully presented property.
Mr Loach
May 2011
This was the best equipped cottage that we have ever stayed in and the location is stunning! The friendliness of the owners on the farm made our stay even more enjoyable. We didn't want to come home!
Mr Westbrook
May 2011
Absolutely wonderful weather and Edale valley was equally fantastic. Cottage was just great and the owners were extremely helpful. My youngest loved the lambs and there were marvelous walks. Cycling in Derwent Valley was a great family day out.
Miss Ryan
February 2011
The location is wonderful and the owners were very friendly and yet very discreet. The views and walks from the door were fabulous.
February 2011
High standard of decor. Very warm and cosy. Friendly owner, very welcoming.
Mr Dennington
February 2011
The valley of Edale was very picturesque, very nice to walk out the front door to. There are great walks from the front door leading up to Kinder Scout plateau in an hour or two. Scenery and emptiness were great. Many other good walks nearby.
February 2011
We experienced a most relaxing week in stunning surroundings. The owners were most helpful and accommodating. They were also most reassuring when faced with our vehicle being snowed in for 5 days and arranged for local farming friends to plough an escape route. We are looking forward to returning in the future.
January 2011
This property and the others at the same location are in a most wonderful location with beautiful views and a short, pleasant walk from Edale village. On the negative side though, we had some problems with the customer service aspect of the holiday which really marred our enjoyment of our stay and we felt particularly let down afterwards by Sykes Holiday Cottages aftercare service. We would also advise anyone considering this property to be aware of the bedroom sizes, especially if you need a cot.
January 2011
The cottage was beautifully fitted out, in a modern style but conserving all the original barn features. The location and views were stunning, we had easy access to plenty of footpaths and local towns. The service was friendly but discreet. This cottage worked out great for our long weekend with small children, there were some nice touches, including childrens games and provision of essential items such as soap and kitchen items.
November 2010
A gem of a conversion in a hidden farm. Ideal if, like us, you enjoy walking in the heart of the Peak District. Open country is within a few hundred metres and the village of Edale is a 5 minute stroll. Accomodation iscomfortable and very well equipped. The courtyard location adjacent a working farm adds atmosphere and the occasional farm odour! We loved it.
Mr Shaw
October 2010
The cottage was excellent, the area is fantastic and the owners are very friendly.
September 2010
Midfeather Cottage gave us a quiet and comfortable break at the start of the holidays. The cottage itself was very well equipped, fresh and clean. The condition of the furniture, linen and kitchen items were very good.The location was great for us as we had hoped for a relaxing break but ended up doing some walking in the area as it is so lovely.The cottage is near enough to amenities to be able to eat out and shop when needed. The owners were very welcoming, helpful and friendly but did not intrude on your holiday in spite of all the cottages being close to one another and the farm house.
Mrs Dabke
August 2010
The property is beautifully maintained, very well stocked with all essentials and well furnished. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The location is wonderful, with views of Mam Tor from the bedroom windows and countryside all around.
Mrs Spicer
August 2010
We loved the location of the cottage as it meant that we could walk from the door. The owners were very helpful and friendly, giving us ideas on where to walk and eat.
May 2010
Well decorated, furnished and equipped cottage. Isolated quiet location but only a ten minute walk to the pub in Edale. Great walks from the doorstep.
Mrs Moody
March 2010
First rate cottage in a lovely secluded location.
Dr Fox
December 2009
Very pleasant accommodation in a quiet location.
December 2009
The cottage was all it appeared to be in the pictures and more. Ample parking, superior cleanliness and outstanding facilities provided. We shall be returning to this cottage next year and we can't wait...
December 2009
We spent a week in this beautiful Hamlet in Edale. The walks,scenery and wider area were all stunning. the property was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The famouse pub at the start of the Penine way is only a 10 minute walk away across fields. If you wanted to visit Sheffield or Manchester,the there is a mainline station within walking distance. I would have no hesitation in booking this property again and recommending it to couples and families.
Miss Ray
October 2009
Remote area, beautiful scenery. Relaxing. The photos on your website to not do the cottage justice, it was much nicer. Would love to come back for longer next time.
Mr Lucas

Great cottage and great location.
Mr Muscroft
September 2009
The peace and quiet along with the great hospitality made it perfect. The holiday went without a problem and we slept like logs for the first time in years.
Mrs Watkins
July 2009
The cottage was in an ideal location for walking. You could do many walks from the cottage without having to use the car. Closeness to the rail station for trips to Manchester and Sheffield. Beautiful scenery and welcoming hosts.
Mrs Titman

It was a very quiet, away from it all holiday.
Mr Mrs Reynolds
May 2009
Lovely position on a working farm with walking routes from the door. Great property to return to even on wet days with facilities to cope with washing, drying etc and always hot water for showers in a warm shower room.
Mrs Taylor
April 2009
We have booked Sykes cottages before so knew what standard to expect and it did not disappoint. I have recommended to friends.
Mr McGowan

Great location, close to pub. Friendly and helpful owners. Fantastic, quiet area and a real country feel.
Mr Horner
March 2009
Everything really was excellent. Would not hesitate in coming again.
Mr Walsh
February 2009
The Nags Head in Edale is an excellent pub with great food. Great base for walks around Edale area and a view of Mam Tor (Iron age Fort) from the window.
Mr Freeston
January 2009
We occupied Midfeather and Meadow View and the comments apply to both properties. Both cottages were extremely well equipped in immaculate condition. The owner was a genuine and delightful person.
Mr Scott

Mrs Good

Property was excellent. Views amazing. Great location for walking. We would definitely return.
Ms Harrison
May 2008
The cottage was beautiful and the location truly excellent with easy access to Pennine Way and Hope Valley, short drive to Ladybower/Howden Dams. There were some lovely touches from the owners (fresh flowers when we arrived, milk and biscuits etc). Being part of a working farm the cottage is in the perfect environment for adults and children alike with sheep/lambs, cows/calves, cats, dog and swallows all resident. We even saw a calf being born. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, will go back and would recommend to friends.
Mrs Robinson
March 2008
Excellent property in lovely location, great views and genuine farmyard feel to it. Owners very friendly and helpful. Snowfall on Easter Sunday and baby calf being born whilst we were there, all made it a memorable and enjoyable holiday for our children.
Mr Mrs Sandford
February 2008
The cottage is in the most amazing location. You can take walks straight from the front door. Inside the property was, in my opinion, one of the best presented holiday cottages I have ever stayed in. It had a lovely feel to the place that made you feel at home. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a bit of peace and quiet but still wants a good base to tour the Peak District 10/10.
Mr Needham
December 2007
Stunning scenery,a good location for walking.
Mr Mrs Blake
September 2007
Will definitely go back there in the future. This was our first holiday in the Peak District and it was wonderful. The scenery is breath taking.
Mrs Lake
August 2007
The property was of a very high standard in a wonderful location. Everything you could hope for in a holiday cottage was there and more besides. The owners were helpful, friendly and close to hand if you should need them. Wonderful and highly recommended!
Mr Myhill
July 2007
The property was newly converted to a very high standard, in excess of the normal standard of a rental home. The decor and all equipment was very good and we felt very much at home. The cleanliness was first class too. The setting of Midfeather Cottage was stunning, with a huge variety of things to do in the area. We would certainly be happy to go back there again.
