Brackendale Cottage

Part of the Upperdale Collection

Brackendale is a beautiful period cottage located on the banks of the River Wye in the picturesque hamlet of Upperdale. Surrounded by the magnificent countryside of Monsal Dale, one of Derbyshire’s most stunning valleys and just a stone’s throw from the Monsal Trail, Brackendale Cottage is just three miles from the popular market town of Bakewell and six miles from Chatsworth House.

The two-bedroom cottage has been sympathetically converted from an 18th-century barn and tastefully furnished with a combination of antique and contemporary furniture. It is attached to its identical twin, Greenhills Cottage. Both cottages benefit from a large riverside garden (safe for children) with BBQ facilities, bicycle storage and garden furniture as well as private parking for two cars.
