Brosterfield Cottage is believed to date from the late seventeenth century. It represents a detached cottage offering a complete contrast from Fern Cottage insofar as it is around half a mile from the village approached by way of a private driveway serving Brosterfield Farm and Brosterfield Hall.
The cottage enjoys outstanding open views across fields taking in Longstone Edge and the village of Wardlow. It was converted from being a farm building into its present form in 1983 and has subsequently been refurbished on a regular basis.
The building is of limestone with oak stained beams to the interior. Whilst visitors have access to much of the eight acres attached to Brosterfield Hall, and many enjoy taking short strolls enjoying the views, the cottage has its own parking area and lawned garden. A garden seat along with a table and chairs are in place to the frontage.
Brosterfield Cottage has central heating (included in the prices quoted), electric cooking facilities and is carpeted throughout.
The LIVING KITCHEN has a flame-effect convector set within a limestone fire surround, a comfortable suite, Captain’s dining chairs with limed wooden table and a colour television. Oak stained beams add to the atmosphere as do the French oak kitchen units. There is a fitted electric cooking hob, a modern fitted convection oven with grill, toaster, refrigerator, microwave and electric kettle. Towels, tea towels, crockery, cutlery, pans, iron, ironing board, drying rack, vacuum cleaner and dusters are all provided.
An open staircase with high picture window leads up to the BEDROOM which takes advantage of the view. The single beds can be easily placed together at the guest's option. There is a walk-in wardrobe area. A waxed pine dressing table is in place and a feature is the co-ordinated fabrics of the curtains, bedding etc. (duvet style bedding/sheets/pillowcases are provided).
The BATHROOM affords a bath and a separate shower cabinet.

To the exterior is the LAWNED GARDEN area exclusive to the cottage and CAR STANDING space well away from any roads. A feature guests often comment on are the views over open countryside. Central heating, electricity, towels and bedding are free of charge. A 24 hour return laundry service is available.
Well behaved 100% housetrained dogs are accepted at Brosterfield Cottage by arrangement although they must not at any time be left unattended or allowed on the furniture. Kennel facilities are available within the grounds by arrangement. No smoking inside the cottage please.
