Experience a truly restorative retreat in this vibrant country cottage situated in the hub of Bakewell with access to a plethora of picturesque hiking routes – ideal for thrill-seekers, easy amblers, and four-pawed adventurists alike. Venture into the emerald wilderness past the winding River Wye to capture a windswept victory photo atop Monsal Head, before sinking into your open-air hot tub for a soak beneath the stars.
This luxurious hideaway boasts a sleek interior brimming with colour and flair. Slide off muddy boots at the door then step into the welcoming lounge area and flop down on the comfortable sofas. Throw another log on the crackling wood burner, snuggle up under one of the plush throws, and set the mood with a crowd-pleasing film on the Smart TV. The resident chef can whip up a storm in the open kitchen while sipping an aperitif before tempting the rest of the group with the scent of delicious home cooking. Gather in the diner with seating for up to 10 guests, raise your glasses, then dive in for a celebratory family feast. After an evening tipple in the lounge, ascend the staircase to the beautiful sleeping areas on the first floor to choose between two four-poster double rooms. Enjoy an invigorating morning session in the bubbling hot tub on the deck illuminated with fairy lights or while away sunny afternoons with a sizzling BBQ feast.
Stroll into the heart of Bakewell, within 400 metres, and scope out the dog-friendly local eateries peppering the high street, serving up frothy coffee and freshly baked tarts. History-buffs and horticulturists will delight in roaming the magnificent grounds of Chatsworth House, 5 miles, and picking up fresh goodies from the farm shop. Gear up for a more challenging hike through the rugged landscape along the Pennine Way trail, accessible within 13 miles.
