“Excellent accommodation in a fab location.”
Well equipped and comfortable.
Well equipped and comfortable.
“This apartment was one of the best we have stayed in.”
Very comfortable, warm and convenient for all amenities. Also has a car parking space which is a luxury in Bakewell.
“The accomodation is situated in the best possible location for Bakewell town, has all the facilities you would require, wonderful view of the river/wildlife and the owner is very obliging.”
“Fantastic property, very well decorated and equipped in a brilliant location.”
More touches for young children then we expected - plenty of toys and some children's crockery and cutlery too, which was a nice surprise. Even given the open spiral staircase this was a good property for a young family and I suspect the owners might get even more bookings with a basic travel cot and highchair supplied. My only issue was that the contact numbers we were given for the owner for arrange for key collection were wrong and we had to contact Sykes for correct information - it would be nice if the booking information was reflected for the correct details.
“The apartment was wonderful with lovely views overlooking the river.”
Really enjoyed watching geese, ducks and all the water birds.
“Riverview Mill Retreat was a lovely place to stay.”
Lovely old building with great views. Location was excellent, just round corner from pedestrian bridge across river right into the heat of Bakewell. Great location for visiting Peak District. Would highly recommend.
“Only fault I can make izzzzz that the shower regulator/mixer valve needs to be replaced.”
Everything else was outstanding. We used the apartment for our base camp to visit the RHS Chatsworth flower show. Thank you.
“What a FANTASTIC apartment....”
This apartment was fantastic, private off road parking for one car, one flight of internal stairs up to it and when you get inside it is BEAUTIFUL,its huge and open plan, it has everything you could need for your stay, we stayed one week and did not want to leave, the views from the lounge look out over the river and across into Bakewell were fabulous and just a few minutes stroll away from lots of lovely restaurants and shops and pubs and some really good walks from your doorstep. We would really love to stay here again and will wait to see if there are any available dates for next year. The bedrooms were very quiet with comfy bed and plenty of storage. The kitchen was well equipped and had plenty of storage space too. The bathroom was lovely but the shower head needed replacing as it only sent water out from the centre of the head in a dribble but when we told the lovely owner on the day that we left she thanked us for letting her know and said she would replace it for the next guests. We absolutely loved every minute that we spent there, even on the two rainy days it was great just to sit and watch the animals on the river from the stools at the windows. FANTASTIC Thank you for a great stay x
“Loved this apartment, from it’s position overlooking the river - so peaceful and relaxing - to its location being just a very short stroll from shops, bars, restaurant and the market.”
Very comfortably furnished and definitely somewhere I would stay again if visiting Bakewell.
“This apartment is fantastic.”
The views of the river are fabulous and it is with in walking distance to beautiful restaurants, shops, coop, Boots. The owner was very helpful and they have thought of everything in the apartment. It is so comfy and nice and bright. The bed was lovely too. Would love to go back here as it was perfect. Sykes have been great too with any questions that we had before our visit and have already used them again to book another cottage.
“Fantastic Apartment, just like home.”
Can't fault anything at all, we didn't want to come home. Will hopefully be back in the future.
“The only reason we probably would not re-book the same property is that we tend to holiday in new locations each time but will certainly consider Sykes for other locations.”
I would suggest that the bathroom lighting could be improved as it was hopeless for makeup application. Otherwise a beautiful property.
“Great location for a winter break”
“We liked the central location and the close proximity to Bakewell town centre.”
The view over the river was delightful. The owners were kind and helpful, offering to alter the heating to accommodate for the cold weather. Modern apartment well furnished and ideal base for exploring the Peak District. Despite its central location and surrounded as it was by car parks it was surprisingly quiet and tranquil.
“We really enjoyed our stay.”
It was very comfortable and a perfect location.
“The apartment was excellent, except for the bathroom floor, which had loose cement between the tiles leaving sharp lumps underfoot.”
This needs repair.
“Love the holiday so much did not want to come back , Derbyshire is very pretty , will be back for sure”
