Whether you’re hoping to enjoy an adventure-filled getaway with friends or quality time together with the extended family, look no further than this delightful waterside property. Happily sleeping eight guests in unrivalled comfort, this base puts the many wonderful offerings of the Peak District at your fingertips. Experience the varied landscapes of the Derbyshire countryside that lay waiting to be explored, whether it’s the historic limestone of the Limestone Way or the mature woodlands of the Monsal Dale. This property is ideal for those eager to see the area on two wheels, with its garage-cum-games room providing secure storage for bikes.

Boasting contemporary decor throughout, this property offers a sociable space in which to unwind and an instant home from home. The open-plan ground floor allows for relaxing evenings spent indoors. Let younger guests enjoy table football or giant Jenga in the games room whilst the family’s designated chef makes full use of the Bluetooth speaker and well-equipped kitchen. This space is made extra special thanks to the French doors leading straight onto the patio, flooding the room with light and giving way for easy alfresco dining. When the day is done, there are four lovely bedrooms to choose from, offering a variety of sleeping options.

Benefiting from a central location in the market town of Bakewell, this property is an ideal choice for those who want to leave the car behind. Just a 0.5-mile walk leads you to the town centre where you can pick up all the essentials and try a traditional Bakewell pudding. From here, follow the banks of the River Wye for waterside walks, perhaps taking a day trip to Haddon Hall (2.5 miles) just down the road. Similarly, discover the spectacular Chatsworth House just 4 miles away, or venture along a walking route to Birchen Edge (5.5 miles) to take in some of the area’s most unforgettable scenery.

You can not get better in Bakewell the location is next to the brook and waterfall so lovely to listen to, and a couple minute walk to town centre, it has it all just pack and go. Think we have just had our 9th visit since October 2017 and definitely will be back.
