    When we had a problem with the central heating boiler the Sykes advisor displayed little if any empathy with our situation we were left very annoyed and suffice to say we will not be using them again

  • "We enjoyed the stay and loved the cottage which was very well equipped."

    Our only issue is the 9.00am check out time which is very early - we had a long walk the day before and a meal out the previous evening and this did not give us chance to enjoy the last day of vacation!

  • "Very nice cottage, parking on the drive a bonus but need to make it clear it wouldn’t fit 2 large cars eg 2 estate cars wouldn’t fit."

    Also should be clear in the listing it’s up a very steep hill, fine for us but glad we hadn’t taken my dad.

    Hi, Thanks for your feedback, I will add a comment to the information sheet regarding the steep hill. The Property Details on the Sykes website clearly states there is 'off road parking for 2 small cars'. I'm not sure what else I can add to this?? I'm glad you enjoyed the cottage and your time in Bakewell. Property Owner

    Agree with other reviews that the bath towels are a bit small! We would definitely stay here again.

  • "We stayed at corner cottage for a weekend mid December and loved it."

    It felt like home the moment we stepped inside. This is first class accomodation and I highly recommend it. The cottage was spotlessly clean and everything you need was provided for a relaxed and comfortable stay. Location is perfect and only a couple of minutes walk to the lovely town of Bakewell, which we visited a few times during our stay. We managed to park 2 family sized cars on the drive no problems. Communication with the owner was excellent and they were very friendly and helpful. Without a doubt, we will certainly be back to this gem of a cottage!

    So clean and cosy. Bakewell is a perfect location to enjoy many of the walks and local villages. The neighbours are lovely and bought us over a bottle of wine for just getting married. There were two little improvements that could be made. One being the towels provided, quite small, we are average sized people and struggled with them! Another being that there was no tea/coffee/pint of milk provided for when you get there which would be a welcoming touch. There was a bottle of wine which was nice bur after arriving very late after a long day of our wedding it would of been lovely if there was a some refreshments just to get you started. That is no way a reason we wouldn’t return to this cottage it really is lovely! We will be back soon! :)

    It was beautiful, well appointed and within easy walking distance of all Bakewell's attractions. There was space on the drive for two cars and plenty of room for a travel cot in the biggest bedroom. The garden was great to sit in and the neighbours very friendly!

  • "Loved our stay in corner cottage, which is very well equipped plus lovely and clean."

    The drive is only small but was fine for our car which isn’t very big as it also can be tight getting out with parked cars on the road. The gate sneck was painted over so wouldn’t drop to keep the gate closed so we had to tie it shut as we had a puppy who could have escaped. Having said that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back.

  • "Lovely cottage very pretty inside."

    Clean and comfortable and very close to the centre. The walk down to the town was fine but it’s very steep walking back up so would be mindful of that. Also, the driveway in the photo is deceiving. We managed to just park a BMW 1 series and a mini on the drive but had to roll the mini back to open the door as not wide enough and there’s very little near by for on road parking so two small cars max. Also cottage was cold. boiler worked on and off all weekend. Owner was very helpful to help us sort it out the first night then it went off and came in again and wouldn’t go off. I didn’t want to spend all weekend talking about the boiler so with the 9am check out on the Monday which I think is too early we only stayed two nights. Enjoyed it just a shame it wasn’t cosy and also no starter pack ie pint of milk in fridge would have been nice at least. Just a non alcoholic bottle of wine?? Bakewell itself is lovely though. We had amazing food at a pub called The Woodyard and I’d highly recommend this food and drinks excellent great cocktails. Lovely bakewell pudding shop sold amazing cake too. Would come back I’d just bring throws and cushions to make it more cosy :-)

    It was ideal to walk the dog. The bed was very comfortable, the shower was brilliant and the central heating was really warm. We would definitely stay there again. It is worth noting that the walk to the cottage from the town centre is up a faily steep hill, but it was good exercise and parking would just about fit two small cars. My Audi A3 fitted with some room to spare.

  • "The cottage is perfectly located near Bakewell - we could walk into the town for shopping, for food and for many beautiful walks in the hills."

    There is a short but very steep hill up to the cottage but it was ok for all of our party. The neighbours to the cottage are very friendly and would often chat to us on our way out. Whilst we were there the weather was lovely and we had a brilliant holiday relaxing, shopping, visiting other towns and doing walks around the area. Further up the hill there is a school which the neighbours told us rents out rooms to people during the holidays. On the Saturday night we stayed there was a very loud party at the school into the early hours of Sunday which kept some of our party awake. The parking on the front of the house was plenty big enough for a fiesta and saab. The cottage itself was comfortable, modern and clean. Our party consisted of four adults and two teenagers and the house sometimes felt a little small for all of us The furnishings are good quality and the shower is lovely. The kitchen appliances are good but the kitchen would benefit from more crockery as there was only 6 of everything and 6 of us staying there - this meant every time we ate we had to wash up before the next meal. The beds were comfortable with good bed linen but I would recommend you take more pillows as these are very flat. There is a small patio area outside which is a lovely suntrap (but only 4 chairs were provided to sit outside).

    Location is very central to Bakewell. It is on a steep hill so not suitable if you have mobility issues. Bakewell town is lovely to stay in and there is a great choice of pubs, restaurants and shops near the cottage and lots of beautiful walks. Parking outside the cottage, suitable for one large car (we had a 4x4 and would only be able to fit one car) but two small cars may fit. Overall super cottage and we would definitely stay again.

The property

Corner Cottage is a timeless and elegant cosy semi-detached cottage in the heart of Bakewell in the Peak District.

Dating back to the 1880s, the cottage has been sympathetically restored capturing its character with its stone mullion windows yet offering 21st century comforts.

This very flexible accommodation offers three king-size double bedrooms, all of which can be twins on request, to suit every party and the woodburning stove provides cosy comfort whatever the season.

The cosy open plan living area adds a sociable element to your holiday and the well-equipped kitchen has everything you need.

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of this delightful Peak District village, Corner Cottage is just a short stroll down a steep hill (slightly harder on the way back uphill!) to all the local facilities.

With off road parking for 2 small cars you can rest assured that parking will never be a problem.

The patio is the perfect place to unwind after the day's adventure and the thoughtful lighting creates a magical atmosphere.

Bakewell is the home of the Bakewell Pudding and there are some wonderful riverside walks along the banks of the Wye.

Corner Cottage is ideally placed to be used as a base while discovering the best of the Peaks.

As Britain's first National Park the area boasts some of the country's finest landscapes covering an area of similar size to Greater London without the vast crowds!

From stately homes and National Trust properties to the most breathtaking and dramatic views there is so much to offer here you will be returning sooner than you’d think!

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

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.

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.
