  • "Hi lovely cottage ."

    On main rd through Bakewell causing noise but soon ignored .lovely walk from courtyard along brook to town .my only problem was we didn't find any information about shared courtyard with two other properties ,meaning unable to leave door open for dogs to enjoy the space .would have been very useful to know before booking

  • "Lovely stay totally spoiled by the final day parking fine."

    Only five vouchers, so on leaving day (the sixth) by 8.45 we were issued a ticket.This gentleman must have been waiting all week for this as I put the next days voucher on every night after 8 pm. Obviously no voucher for last day( it does not say, not including Sundays, so I used the first one on night one, maybe it would have been better to be fined then...) to add insult to injury we were in the process of packing the car to leave. Still it's more than his jobsworth..... So if you use this cottage, leaving time is NOT 10.00, it's actually 08.00

The property

Waters Edge is nestled into the centre of the charming village of Bakewell in Derbyshire, and is a superb, three-storey holiday cottage.

Boasting a fantastic location within the Peak District National Park and ideally located in one of the park's most popular towns, Waters Edge is the perfect family-friendly base for couples or a family of four, plus up to two canine companions.

Be greeted by a spacious courtyard patio with seating, ideal for warmer days when you fancy sitting out with your favourite tipple, whilst browsing the complimentary guides provided or one of the many good novels from famous local authors.

Look forward to cooking delicious meals in the well-equipped kitchen ready to enjoy at the dining table for four over a bottle of wine.

You'll also find a cellar with a chest freezer and storage space for bikes.

Relax in the welcoming sitting room with a two and three-seater sofa and footrest to rest those weary legs, as your favourite show plays out on the Smart TV, and your pooches take their favourite spot in front of the crackling woodburning stove.

Climb the stairs up to the first floor, where you can wash away the day with a relaxing soak in the bath or freshen up with a hot shower, before choosing from two well-appointed bedrooms to catch your rest in.

Both bedrooms have a Smart TV, hairdryer, and complimentary toiletries, a super-king-size with zip/link, and a second-floor double, ideal for those lazy mornings snuggled up.

A wander through the charming town centre will find a fantastic selection of pubs, restaurants and cafes, including the popular Rutland Arms, the 200-year-old pub, The Peacock, and The Old Original Bakewell Pudding Shop, as well as the award-winning Hattersley Wines.

Enjoy a leisurely stroll over the historic Bakewell Bridge and along the River Wye, visit the 17th-century market hall, purchase fresh and local produce at the farmers markets, the famous English family-run chocolate shop; Holdsworth Chocolates (as seen on TV) or the very popular Bakewell Cheese Shop.

Attractions include local history at The Old House or take a dip in the pool at the local leisure centre, while just out of the town centre there is the welcoming Thornbridge Brewery where you can book guided tours and enjoy samples.

Alternatively, enjoy the many walks in the Derbyshire Dales and the wider Peak District, with the famous, traffic-free Monsal Trail on your doorstep.

Take the short drive over to the esteemed stately home Chatsworth House, owned by the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire (The Cavendish family), where you can tour the decadent interior and expansive gardens which include a farmyard and adventure playground, a fountain and pond, and a labyrinth, a great family-friendly day out with many events held throughout the year!

Next stop is Matlock, where you will find the picturesque Hall Leys Park, ideal for picnics, the Pic Tor War Memorial with exceptional views at its top.

Continue the fun at Matlock Bath, which offers an aquarium, the Peak District Mining Museum and the fun-filled Gulliver’s Kingdom.

For a memorable day trip, head to the renowned Alton Towers theme park filled with rollercoasters and rides to suit all tastes!

All this awaits you with a stay at Waters Edge.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

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.
