    “The setting of the cottage on the River Wye was just perfect.”

    We loved sitting in the garden of an evening watching the ducks and geese.

    We loved sitting in the garden of an evening watching the ducks and geese. The cottage was comfortable, clean and had everything that we needed. All amenities were close by and a beautiful park also. We will definately be returning.

The property

This lovely stone-built, semi-detached property is located on the River Wye in the beautiful market town of Bakewell.

With views over the River Wye and easy access to the river, this property provides an excellent holiday destination for a group of four or a small family.

This accommodation is tastefully decorated throughout, with two comfortable bedrooms and a modern shower room.

The kitchen/diner is fully equipped with a light, airy feel and a cosy sitting room with real flame fire, making it a great place to curl up with a good movie.

Step out of the sitting room onto a private patio, here you can sit and enjoy the sunshine while watching folk strolling up and down the riverbank.

Also, as parking is at a premium in this busy market town, there’s a handy carport providing off road parking.

Open the patio gate and you’re on the bank of the River Wye, where you can take an easy walk down to the Bakewell showground.

This property stands in the heart of this delightful town, with its tempting array of shops, restaurants and real ale pubs close at hand.

The River Wye is teaming with Brown Trout, Grayling and the unique Rainbow Trout making this a popular river for fishing and seasonal permits are available to the visiting angler.

Bakewell is perfectly placed for discovering fabulous walks and trails and the historic houses of Chatsworth and Haddon House are just a short drive away.

This is a fabulous property to visit anytime of the year.

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.
