"Many thanks for giving us a wonderful stay at your delightful cottage. The location here in Bradford Dale is quite fantastic (as a previous resident of Tideswell I can say it even beats Tideswell Dale!) Our Grandson had a particularly nice time wading in the stream…The Youlgrave playing field in the village deserves a mention – there’s plenty of space for children to play."
