  • A gorgeous detached character property in walking distance of Bakewell’s many renowned amenities
  • Spacious open-plan kitchen/diner with bi-folding doors creating a fantastic entertaining space
  • Beautiful rolling hills surround the town and is a perfect base for those who love hiking the hills, the River Wye meanders through the town providing pretty waterside views and lots of wildlife
Property code: 76635

Spend quality time with loved ones in this stylish and spacious detached character home. The accommodation provides a beautiful base for anyone wanting to enjoy the delights of the Peak District National Park.

Whether you want to get all of your loved ones together to celebrate a special occasion, or bring the team from the office together to thrash out business strategy, this grand and glamorous detached home in Bakewell is a great accommodation choice. Spend glorious days hiking along the Monsal Trail or rock-scrambling at Wildboar Clough, and your evenings hosting celebratory dinners in the elegant dining room or warming your toes by the wood burner in the living room.

Sleeping ten people over five bedrooms and welcoming two dogs, there’s no denying that this house is a wonderfully social space. Step inside and you’ll find a light and bright kitchen/diner. Pop the kettle on and gather everyone around the breakfast bar to plan the day ahead. After a wonderful day exploring the national park, come home to create culinary classics in the kitchen area. Get everyone together around the dining table, or head out into the garden to dine alfresco. After dinner, crack open a bottle of something fizzy and enjoy mingling on the lawn of the split-level garden. Alternatively, head to the garage for a game of table tennis, or retreat to the living room to curl up on the sofa in front of the crackling wood burner. At the end of the day, there are five stylish bedrooms upstairs to choose from.

Get the gang together for a gorge-walking experience at Beeley (5 miles): walking through streams and scrambling up small waterfalls is the perfect way to spend a warm day. Alternatively, make your way to Hassop Station (2 miles), hire some bikes and head along the traffic-free Monsal Trail, which runs for 8.5 miles to Chee Dale. After all that exercise, make a beeline for Bakewell (0.5 miles) and sample the town’s famous Bakewell Pudding.

Lovely large cottage to stay in not far from central Bakewell but up quite a steep hill on a fairly busy road. Enclosed and secure garden for the dogs. Spacious and sociable kitchen/ living /dining rooms with good sized bedrooms.

Nice location 5 mins walk to Bakewell, however the hill is steep. Lounge is too small for 10 people, and really with just the 2 bathrooms it would be tricky overall if you had 10 people. Luckily we only had 6 and that felt OK. This lessens the value for money - however the finish, cleanliness and location were all positives for us.
