This delightful second floor apartment is set in an historic stone-built, Grade II listed townhouse in the heart of the Derbyshire town of Bakewell.
Originally constructed for the Duke of Rutland’s estate in 1765, the apartment offers high-quality accommodation for couples within easy walking distance of Bakewell town centre.
There’s a fabulous king-size double bedroom flooded with natural light from the Georgian sash windows.
The bathroom has a contemporary tiled finish and features a window seat and a luxurious roll-top bath with claw feet and a rain shower over it.
A well-equipped, modern kitchen provides all that you require for preparing a hearty breakfast to fuel up for the many activities readily available to you, or perhaps enjoy an evening feast before relaxing on the comfortable sofas in the open plan living/dining area.
That is of course, if you haven’t been lured out by the extremely tempting array of cafés, restaurants and fine inns all on the doorstep.
And what could be more tempting than the Old Original Bakewell Pudding Shop right opposite?
There’s always something going on such as the Food Festival or the Eroica Britannia cycling festival, and very close by are the magnificent Chatsworth Estate and Haddon Hall.
Whatever you choose to do, this luxurious apartment will provide a very comfortable base for your Peak District holiday with a fantastic opportunity to discover wild Britain.

About the location
Chatsworth 4 miles; Matlock 8 miles; Buxton 12 miles.
An attractive little market town retaining a delightful rural atmosphere and offering a good selection of shops, restaurants and pubs, as well as 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. Take a trip to Buxton and visit the impressive Edwardian Opera House, designed by Frank Matcham, who also designed the London Palladium.
