An attractive little market town retaining a delightful rural atmosphere and offering a good selection of shops, restaurants and pubs, as well as frequent local farmers’ markets. There is an old 17th Century market hall in the town centre and a modern leisure centre with swimming pool nearby. Bakewell is situated within the Peak District National Park and is ideally placed for exploring this beautiful region. Both the rugged Dark Peak and the softer limestone White Peak are within easy reach, and Alton Towers, Britain’s premier theme park, is only a short drive away. There are many stately homes to visit including Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall to mention just a few, while the impressive caverns in nearby Castleton and Little John’s burial place in Hathersage are also well worth a visit.

Previous visitors' comments about Four Winds:
The cottage was roomy and comfortable. It was a welcome surprise to have a dining room. Lounge was cosy.

Family friendly, 'homely' house with lovely enclosed garden. Kitchen particularly well equipped. Beautiful quiet countryside location with fantastic views. It far exceeded my expectations and I would not hesitate to recommend it to others.
Mrs Ryan, Wirral, August 2012
We had an enjoyable family get together, us and our adult children, and Four Winds was a great base for this. It is a lovely house - really warm, well equipped and comfortable. The views were excellent and Bakewell is a super town. We arrived on the day of the Farmers Market which made the town lively and bustling. Would happily return.
Mrs Birch, Manchester, March 2012
I thought the star grade was wrong as I thought it deserved more. We all thought the house was perfect from position, comfort, quietness and the lady who looks after the house was also very friendly and helpful with her advice on places to visit. All in all a perfect holiday, even the weather was quite good.
