  • "Stonecroft is a welcoming cottage with all the necessary equipment for a family or large group of friends."

    Ben and Becky made us feel welcome with the basket of goodies and email prior to our holiday. The family loved the space and cleanliness of the cottage. Being able to access the town and activities of the Peaks on the doorstep is an added bonus. Thanks for a fabulous week.

  • "Had a great week with 4 generations of the family at Stonecoft."

    A lovely property with great facilities and an amazingly well-stocked kitchen, especially for the 9 of us. A big thanks to Ben and Becks for the welcome pack. Plenty of lovely shops and pubs all within a couple of minutes walk away and can definitely recommend Rajas if you fancy an Indian takeaway.

  • "Excellent property in a brilliant location."

    Ideal for a family of 10. The kitchen has everything you can think of. Beautifully decorated and really comfy beds. We had a problem with the key entry box and the owners did their best to sort it to allow us access to the house. Very friendly owners who were quick to reply to our queries.

    It has everything we needed for our short stay. The only disappointment for us was that we had only booked it for a long weekend, but it is our intention to return for a longer stay.

  • "Beautifully furnished Spacious Great location Good heating and hot water Lots of kitchen china and equipment Great parking Dog friendly (which is great) Disappointing that only 3 rings worked on the stove, tricky when cooking for 10 people!"

    Dear Adele, Thank you for your feedback, its much appreciated, and we are super pleased that you enjoyed staying at Stonecroft. I can only apologise for the stove, however we have been waiting for spare parts to arrive and due to the continued delay, have actually now simply opted to replace the range cooker with a brand new one. Hopefully you will come back again next year to give it a try! Kindest regards, Ben & Becks Property Owner

  • "Homely & welcoming cottage thoughtfully furnished in keeping with its era in an excellent location for the town centre and surrounding attractions."

    Older or less mobile people might struggle with the short set of stairs but the availability of a large downstairs bedroom and shower room filled that gap beautifully for our party. Easy to find and great to have off road parking for 3 cars with everything you might need for your stay. Perfect for short or longer stays we would definitely recommend Stonecroft.

  • "A beautiful, well cared for and equipped house (even the dogs are catered for) in a perfect position in Bakewell, would definitely recommend."

    Our only criticism would be that the hob needs servicing as only three burners work but as we didn’t do a great deal of cooking it wasn’t a great inconvenience to us but slightly frustrating. We had a fantastic week and love this gorgeous house

    Dear Susan, thank you for your very kind review. With regards the cooker and hob I can only apologise for any inconvenience. We had the hob fully cleaned and serviced recently but are trying to source spare parts. However given the time delay, we have actually now decided to simply replace the entire range with a brand new one which will be fitted on the 15th December. I hope this experience won't put you off returning to Stonecroft in the future. Thanks again. Ben Property Owner

Look forward to relaxing in the spacious sitting room, with its impressive heavy oak beamed ceiling, where you can enjoy a glass of wine whilst watching your favourite TV in front of the woodburning stove set within a feature Derbyshire gritstone fireplace with stone hearth.

Put your culinary skills to the test in the well-equipped kitchen/diner, preparing tasty meals for your guests on the integrated Rangemaster, to be enjoyed around the large dining table as you toast to a wonderful holiday under the feature high vaulted ceiling with exposed oak beams.

Moving through the property, you will find a handy utility room with an extra fridge/freezer and washing machine, so there will be no piles of clothes needing a wash once you return home!
