  • "We discovered on the Saturday morning that we had been sleeping on an oil stained bed sheet."

    We immediately reported it to the provided email but by Monday (when we left) the bedding had still not been replaced. The property also has a very slow, basic and unreliable wifi (oscillating between 0, 1 and 8mgbs) that struggles to provide a continuous signal to the Smart TV. And as there is no working TV or satellite ariel at the property, when the Wifi trips or slows ,3mgbs, then there is no TV. At the least a backup DVD player would have helped whilst the owners fix the no satellite and slow wifi issues. This was especially disappointing considering how prominently the TV area features in the pictures on Sykes website. Very surprised also that this known issue isn't mentioned in the advertising. Owners/Sykes did send an email just before our arrival but it was sufficiently vague that we did not cancel the booking (which we would have had we known)

  • "This property was one of the best we have been in very well equipped with everything you would need for either a short or long stay, lots of games and reading material for those dark winter nights in."

    Well located for all amenities and plenty of walks from your door would highly recommend. Phil and Sue.

  • "Lovely cottage in a fantastic location."

  • "Had a great week once we got over the fact the bathroom was downstairs which meant descending down the difficult staircase in the night."

    The cottage was so well situated just a short walk down a very steep hill ( not suitable for everyone) and so close to buses which we used daily and never moved our car. We’d certainly return to this comfy, well equipped cottage in an excellent area for walking and sightseeing.

    Thank you very much for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in Bakewell and we hope you visit again soon! Regards, Dorota Property Owner

  • "Beautiful and comfortable cottage only 2 minutes walk from the nearest pub/shops/cafe."

    Nothing negative to report…. I will definitely be back…

    Thank you for your lovely comments. I am really pleased that you enjoyed your stay and I hope to see you again soon. Dorota x Property Owner

  • "This fabulous cottage is beautifully presented and located just a short walk from the pretty market town of Bakewell."

    The cottage was immaculately clean, cosy, comfortable, well equipped and the owner very helpful. Bakewell is a perfect choice for a short break with a variety of shops and places to eat. It is also a short travelling distance from many other pretty Peak District towns and villages. We would thoroughly recommend this cottage and, when we next return to this beautiful town, it will be our first choice of accommodation.

The property

A beautiful stone-built property resting in the quaint honeypot location of Bakewell, ideal for a family or group of friends looking for a getaway to Derbyshire and the Peak District.

Enter through a pink stable door to find a cloakroom with plenty of space to hang coats and store muddy boots, before entering into a delightful living/dining room where charming furniture encourages you to grab a coffee and settle beside the gas-effect fire as you plan the day ahead of you, whilst family mealtimes can be enjoyed at the dining table.

The kitchen houses a host of amenities and furniture, with a skylight overhead to create a light and airy quality as you cook up a storm.

For a quiet spot to read, choose the sunroom, from which you can access the patio garden, featuring space where you can store bikes, and a truly tranquil spot for a tipple in the sunshine as you reflect on the day.

Choose between a refreshing shower or a warm soak in the bathtub before settling down into one of the two well-presented bedrooms, with the option of a super-king-size with built-in wardrobes, and a twin room.

The property is within walking distance of the lovely town centre of Bakewell, where you will find a selection of cafes, pubs, tasty eateries and independent shops to browse at your leisure.

Enjoy walks beside the River Wye, past the historic Bakewell Bridge and Bakewell Love Locks Bridge or learn more about local history and heritage at the local museum.

Immerse yourself in the tranquillity of the Lathkill Dale Nature Reserve, admiring the lush landscapes or exploring the vibrant wildflower meadows; alternatively, outdoor enthusiasts may wish to venture to the nearby Monsal Trail, offering a scenic route for walking, cycling or horse riding, with its impressive Headstone Viaduct providing breathtaking vistas across the rolling countryside.

Delight in a visit to Chatsworth House, an architectural marvel filled with opulent art and beautiful gardens, or head to Haddon Hall, which boasts an impressive display of medieval and Tudor features, guaranteed to impress the history lovers of your group.

Further from the property you will find Matlock with its aquarium and cable cars, as well as the bustling locations of Sheffield and Buxton.

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.
