    • “Mom Dad and 16 year old daughter travel to England to spend one week in the countryside and one week in London...our stay in Bakewell and Knoll Cottage was in one word...perfect! Knoll Cottage is the cleanest rental we have ever stayed in. Everything was in great working order. Truly the nicest home away from home ever! We will return to Bakewell and Knoll Cottage!!

    • “Our first look around Knoll Cottage gave us the Wow factor. It was warm, comfortable and very welcoming. There was a generous supply of lovely towels and beautiful bed linen. It lacked nothing. Knoll cottage is in a very good location close to the centre of Bakewell which offers plenty of good shopping and restaurants. It is a steep walk from the town up to the cottage so not for the infirm. Knoll cottage and Bakewell together made for a perfect holiday.”

    • “Knoll Cottage was extremely well equiped and delightfully furnished. Everything possible was provided. Bakewell itself is a lovely town, spick and span,friendly and the cleanest, litter-free place I have ever visited.(dog friendly pubs too). Parking is a bit of a problem but a very minor inconveinience.”

    • “This was our second stay this year at Knoll Cottage, having had it for a week in April. As we were staying over the Christmas week it had been tastefully decorated for Christmas which was lovely and homely and made us feel all the more festive. The cottage is on a busy road and unloading the car with luggage etc can be an issue as it is up a hill just on a bend, good idea to take an emergency triangle with you if you have one and put it about 20 yards down from your car as it certainly slows the traffic and makes them aware that your are there. There is enough room to bump up on the footpath too so you are not entirely on the road. The cottage is very well equipped with all manner of cooking utensils and with lovely matching crockery that is in good condition, not chipped or cracked. It is also very warm and whilst there is a wood burning stove we didn't need to use it as we were always more than warm enough. There is a small courtyard, alas we couldn't get our dogs to go out there and do anything so that was a big issue for us, as there is nowhere nearby to take them for the first and last ablutions of the day. There is a large bathroom with a good showers and jacuzzi bath and the two bedrooms are good sizes and really tastefully decorated. It is a 5 minute walk into the town centre, if you are in anyway physically challenged, walking back up to the cottage may be prove challenging as it is up a hill. With regards to parking, you do get given a permit and parking is available at the back of the church, best way to get to it is go past the cottage, on your left, turn in Yeld Road about 100 yards up from there and as you head back towards the cottage take the left hand slope which is the road at the back of the church, up there is parking for permit holders. One thing it could do with is the front door having a lick of paint as it does look a little tired and could give a poor first impression and certainly isn't the case once inside.”

    • “The cottage was excellent, especially the kitchen and bathroom. Other rooms old fashioned but in keeping with the cottage.The TV needs updating as the reception was poor. Needs to have freeview to give more choice. Curtains in twin bedroom could be darker as there is a street light right outside. Good location for the town. Parking sometimes a problem.”

    • “everything to meet our needs- a week-end meeting of friends from staffordshire and lincolnshire. very easy to walk into bakewell or travel out into surrounding area. due to position on busy main road, no facility for parking directly out-side property.”

About the location


Chatsworth 4 miles; Matlock 8 miles.

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.
