  • 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.

We were a family of 7 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs and found Fox House to be a beautifully decorated, stylish and comfortable house within walking distance of the centre of Bakewell. The kitchen is well equipped, the bedrooms spacious and the beds very comfortable. The barbecue & the table tennis were a bonus. We would definitely stay here again.

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.

Incredible location within a short walk of all Bakewells amenities, this home felt spacious, warm, cosy, comfortable and easy to relax in for a family of six enjoying a winter break. The sheltered driveway, table tennis in the garage, huge dining room table and efficient logburner were all bonuses whilst escaping Storms Dudley, Eunice and Franklin!

Fox House was perfect for a family gathering for my mothers 80th birthday. We could walk into Bakewell in 5 minutes and the location was excellent for doing some lovely walks e.g Baslow to Chatsworth and The Monsall trail. The fox is beautifully decorated and well equipped. The garden is terraced on 3 levels and there was plenty of garden furnitureRead more. We had 3 cars so put one in the garage and 2 on the drive.

The cottage was spacious and the bedrooms luxurious, and the beds comfy. A good kitchen, well equipped. but the garden was very steep, so not suitable for anyone less able on their legs. It was lovely for us to have the whole family in one place, and with space to enjoy themselves - we were having a Golden Wedding celebration.

A lovely large house in a perfect position for walking into Bakewell (as long as you dont mind a hill coming back). Bakewell is a great too, lots of eateries, some good shops and lovely river walk. Mind the little step as soon as you enter the back gate, it can easily catch you out. Beautiful back garden but very steep, not safe for young children Read moreor infirm adults.
