The property

Resting in the heart of the Peak District National Park, just a stone's throw from the centre of Bakewell, Knoll Cottage is a delightful, double-fronted, stone-built terraced cottage offering a wonderful base for your next break to Derbyshire.

Lovingly restored and boasting a quaint, traditional style, whilst perfectly incorporating contemporary amenities, Knoll Cottage is the ideal property for a couple or small family seeking a holiday to Bakewell.

Following a day's adventure, head in through the rear entrance via the communal stone pathway up to the blue painted gate, entering the pretty enclosed courtyard where patio furniture creates a tranquil setting for dining alfresco.

Make your way into the kitchen to find an excellent array of appliances including a gas oven and hob, fridge with ice-box and a dishwasher, amidst the light and bright interior of this fitted kitchen.

Come together around the dining table in the attractive dining room for mealtimes, featuring original parquet flooring and home to a beautiful antique dresser, with similar gems found throughout the property.

Retire to the sitting room to rest and relax in front of the characterful electric stove-effect fire, settled within the traditional stone fireplace, with two plush sofas to choose from, a decorative rug, and artwork on the pretty pale green walls all adding to the homely atmosphere as you enjoy watching the TV.

Head up the wide staircase to find original polished wooden floors and two lovely bedrooms with period features, more antique furnishings and elegant bed linen, with the king-size room offering views of the church from one side and overlooking the patio from the other.

The charming twin bedroom enjoys pretty, bedheads with a delightful tulip pattern, along with a wonderful dressing table, with both rooms served by the spacious bathroom, comprising a walk-in shower and a fabulous, large corner bath with jets for relaxing soaks!

When you can tear yourself away from this tranquil property, venture out into the diverting town of Bakewell, most notably known for its unique and tasty pudding, it has plenty to offer for a great staycation.

Browse the local outdoor market, which occurs every Monday to pick up local produce, souvenirs or just essential shopping, with the livestock market proving to be a theatre-like and unique experience, certainly for city-dwellers!

Stroll along the banks of the River Wye which runs through the town, passing mellow stone buildings and the medieval five-arched stone bridge, with a picture-perfect scene around every corner!

Discover the history within the walls of The Old House, a Tudor house featuring local historical artefacts and exhibits, pick up some sweet treats from the Original Bakewell Pudding Shop, and sample the delicious food at one of the town's restaurants or pubs.

Spend the day admiring the spectacular Chatsworth House, the filming location for Mr Darcy's Pemberley for the 2013 adaption of 'Pride & Prejudice', expect to be astounded by the grand rooms, opulent artwork, vast grounds and charming playground and farmyard, great for children!

Another excellent outing can be had at Haddon Hall, while Matlock Farm Park is another fun-filled place for all ages.

Bakewell is perfect for walkers and cyclists alike to base themselves for accessing endless beauty spots to traverse, with the peaks of Monsal Head, Fin Cop, Stanage Edge, High Wheeldon and Mam Tor all within easy driving range.

For a memorable stay in the charming Peak District town of Bakewell, choose to bring your loved ones to Knoll Cottage.

About the location

BAKEWELL

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.
