Perfect for couples and small families, this cottage is cosy and characterful and will provide a wonderful base to call home while visiting this picturesque part of the country.

This pretty stone cottage, in the heart of the picturesque town of Bakewell, sleeps three guests. The property is perfectly placed just 100 metres from the town’s fantastic selection of independent shops and eateries. From the town, take a stroll along the traffic-free Monsal Trail or hop in the car to the spectacular Chatsworth House (4.5 miles), where you can while away many hours exploring the impressive rooms and majestic grounds.

The property has bags of character, thanks to features such as the fabulous exposed beams, original stonework and beautiful ornamental fireplace. The lounge is a warm and inviting spot in which to snuggle up after a day’s hiking; unwind on the plump sofas in front of the roaring wood burner to watch your favourite programme on the Smart TV/DVD. Upstairs, you’ll find two pretty bedrooms: a double with fabulous views over the town and a single which has a PlayStation to keep kids entertained. To the rear of the cottage is a small outdoor area that provides a secure place to store bikes.

There’s so much to see and do in Bakewell, the largest town in the national park. Wander along the narrow streets and admire the photogenic stone buildings, browse the many artisan shops, stroll along the river and marvel at the five-arched bridge or pop into a cafe to sample the town’s iconic pudding. The town is the start of the Monsal Trail, which is an 8.5-mile track that follows a former railway line through the spectacular limestone dales. It’s traffic free, making it perfect for walkers and cyclists. For wild and rugged walks with nature, journey to Longshaw Estate (9 miles) to discover 1,600 acres of moorland, gritstone edges and ancient woodland, as well as jaw-dropping views over the Derwent Valley.

The cottage was warm and inviting, spotlessly clean and in an amazing location. The bed was very comfortable and It had everything we needed. Perfect base for walks and cycle rides, we only needed to get in the car once in the whole week.

The cottage was homely and perfect for all our needs. It was ideally located within working distance of the high street, and a good base for the Peaks and attractions. The welcome booklet was very informative and recommendations made within were appreciated, for instance the local eateries. The bottle of wine on arrival was a lovely touch.

Lovely, well equipped cottage in a beautiful and friendly town. Communication with Judith was great. The cottage is just behind the main street, full of lots of independent shops, cafes and pubs. It's great to have a residents parking permit, but finding a space nearby was difficult, and you need to be fit to get to a parking space up by the churchRead more. Hide

A perfect cottage with everything you could need! Very cosy, beautifully decorated, and impeccably clean. The modern renovation has kept the cottage's old charm intact. Many cafes, shops, and pubs down the road, but the cottage is on a very quiet lane. We found many walks starting from Bakewell and took buses to visit the surrounding area (ChatsworRead moreth, Matlock Bath etc). The owners, Judith and Nigel, are extremely kind and devoted to their lovely cottage. We can't wait to come again! Hide
