This property is a beautiful, semi-detached barn conversion on a working sheep farm in a peaceful location that sleeps up to four people. 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 bed...rooms, 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.

Region: The ultimate in “year-round” appeal, the Peak District offers countryside, picturesque villages and magnificent scenery. It touches upon six counties and encloses 555 square miles of open moorland, flowing rivers, and wooded dales.
Town: The lovely High Peaks village of Edale is the start of the Pennine way and lies at 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.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

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
Brilliant-except for the weather

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.
Stunning location and comfortable accommodation

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.
Stunning cottage in a beautiful location

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.

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.

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.
Quiet family break

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.

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.

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...

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.
