“Lovely Big Modern House in Centre of Bakewell”
Reviewed June 7, 2011 for a stay in November 2010

We had a great weekend at this property which has plenty of room for 3 families and their children - Walking distance from historic centre of Bakewell - home of puddings NOT tarts the locals will tell you and within striking distance of the Peak District and local attractions such as the Devils, er.. giant cave. Charming pubs walks and relaxation a plenty this is a beautifully fitted modern house with open kitchen / diner and separate building living area across from the main house - Recommended a great country bolthole and weekend away from whatever big smoke you're from North or South and a great introduction to the Peak District.

“Lovely Bakewell”
Reviewed June 6, 2011 for a stay in November 2010

3 families comfortably stayed in this house. It has a clean, chic interior with a layout that meant there was plenty of space to socialize, but also allowed for each family to have their own space.

The kitchen, set in the centre of house, was very well equipped and was the perfect setting to share a Bakewell pudding or 3!

Off road parking was an added bonus and being able to close the gate meant that it was safe for the kids to run around outside without worrying about them. The garden, set back almost at the level of the roof had the most fantastic views over Bakewell.

We had a fabulous weekend in Bakewell and highly recommend it.

“Lovely Place”
Reviewed June 1, 2011 for a stay in December 2010

This was the second time we have stayed in this Cottage. There was 10 females of ages from 20's - 60's on a weekend break. Cant fault the location, although this time because it had been snowing really badly, we had to dig our way in, but all part of the fun. Walking distance to Bakewell, with its charming shops, pubs and places to eat. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would definately recommend the place.

Management Response

We park two Zafira's as well as a massive bongo camper van in the courtyard so 3 normal cars is easy - thus not sure about the parking comment! Thanks for all else though!!

“So Lovely”
Reviewed May 19, 2011 for a stay in March 2011

This really was a great find that we can very happily recommend - we have stayed here twice as we liked it so much. We found it gave us the freedom to come and go that we would not get in a hotel. The house is very pretty and has been recently very tastefully renovated so has all the mod cons you could expect and hope for. Plenty of room for our family of 5 (3 small children) and our friends with their children. Two bathrooms with loos and an extra loo downstairs (very important with so many kids!). Kids loved the garden and so did grown ups - great views and very tranquil. Nice location as an easy and scenic stroll to the centre of Bakewell with all its shops and cafes and also close to and short walk to the countryside. Lovely kitchen and big table to all sit around, read Sunday papers and generally relax. Planning on going back without the kids if we can (they can't wait to go back!)as a great place to just relax.
