The property

Resting in the Peak District National Park within the market town of Bakewell, Derbyshire, is Longstone View, a characterful, four-storey historic limestone cottage built in 1890.

Well-positioned near a range of local amenities and attractions, whilst offering four guests a traditional base including a well-equipped kitchen/diner with access to a Juliette balcony, a homely sitting room with woodburning stove, and an enclosed courtyard, the cottage welcomes both families and friends for a countryside escape.

Park up off-road before entering Longstone View, starting off in the welcoming sitting room, where you can unwind upon the plush seating, enveloped by an original beamed ceiling and the rustling of the woodburning stove.

Continue through to the kitchen/diner, dotted with all expected appliances to rustle up and enjoy delicious meals, whilst a handy utility can be found on the lower-ground-floor.

Enjoy some fresh air in the rear courtyard, enclosed and private for an alfresco affair, before returning indoors to catch some rest in either of the two bedrooms on offer; locate the third-floor twin bedroom with easy access to the third-floor family bathroom, the second floor has a double with an en-suite shower room and superb views over Bakewell.

Awaken to a nature-filled itinerary, starting off locally at the Chatsworth Farmyard & Adventure Playground, or a hike across the Monsal Trail, whilst both the Bakewell Old House Museum, and Chatsworth House showcase the areas heritage.

Travelling towards Matlock, be spoilt for choice when arranging days out, with the chance to visit Matlock Bath Aquarium, explore the stunning landscape of Lumsdale Waterfall, tour the Peak District Mining Museum, enjoy a thrill-seeking afternoon at Gulliver's Kingdom theme park, or visit an array of animals at Matlock Farm Park.

Further attractions across the area include Treak Cliff Cavern, Mam Tor Mountain, and the remains of Peveril Castle, before heading towards Buxton, home toa museum and art gallery, Poole's Cavern, and Go Ape Buxton.

Experience something for everyone at Longstone View.

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.
