  • “The apartment was excellent, except ...”
    The apartment was excellent, except for the bathroom floor, which had loose cement between the tiles leaving sharp lumps underfoot. This needs repair.

The property

This impressive apartment is in a Grade II listed stone-built former timber mill on the banks of the River Wye with breathtaking double-aspect views of the river, in the centre of the beautiful market town of Bakewell.

Superbly finished and in a fantastic location, this delightful apartment is ideal for couples or a small family with a mezzanine offering a separate reading, study and play area.

The unique open plan living area with vaulted ceilings, oak floors and exposed period features has a modern, well-equipped kitchen, dining area and luxurious seating areas which look directly out on the beautiful River Wye.

The contemporary styled bedrooms with black out curtains and blinds are light and furnished with quality beds and linen, and the modern designer shower room is the height of luxury.

A short stroll finds you over the river bridge and right in the heart of this delightful town, with its tempting array of shops, restaurants and real ale pubs, not forgetting the famous Bakewell Pudding bakeries.

There is an easy flat walk to Bakewell Showground which hosts a variety of events throughout the year, or you could obtain a fishing permit and see if you can bag yourself a trout or grayling, as this stretch of the River Wye is teeming with whoppers!

With fabulous walks and cycle trails and year round events at the historic estates of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall just short drives away, this is a fabulous property to enjoy at any time of the year.

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.
