  • "Wayland House fit our needs perfectly."

    The bed was comfy, the kitchen well stocked, comfortable lounge with a large couch, good WiFi and very clean throughout. The location is within close reach if restaurants and shopping, while being tucked away from noisy traffic. We stayed for 4 weeks and the owner was in contact with us throughout, making sure we were comfortable and had all we needed.

  • "Spotlessly clean with very comfy furnishings."

    The property was a short walk into Bakewell which suited us perfectly. Everything worked and the kitchen was well equipped. The instructions were perfect, accurate and detailed enough without having to feel as if you’re reading a rule book. Great to have a text from Laura on day 1 too.

  • "Great location on the edge of town, although the hill doesn't get any less steep !"

    Very comfortable cottage and excellent facilities, although the fire alarm is very sensitive. Don't burn your toast !

  • "We absolutely loved staying here, very comfortable, clean and had everything you need including huge smart tv, lovely big comfy sofa and very well equipped kitchen."

    The bed in the main bedroom is massive and very comfortable. Lovely views, good dog walking nearby and a short walk to the town centre. Would definitely stay here again, excellent value.

  • "A lovely cosy cottage."

    I can't recall reading it was up a hill? I may of missed this in the listing though. The cupboard above the shoe rack in the kitchen is dangerous. My mum banged her head on the sharp corner when putting her shoes away. A funny place to put a shoe rack. The bed in the back bedroom is too big for the room, tiny space to get out of bed, especially with a hot radiator right next to it. Very impractical. Despite this, we really enjoyed our stay. Immaculately clean, very warm and welcoming when we arrived. Lovely views from upstairs, especially during the beautiful snowfall. Thank you.

  • "The property was clean and warm with comfortable beds and good storage for clothes."

    Quiet location but very convenient for the town centre. We would return. [Cooker instructions would have been helpful - lots of trial and error to use oven & grill.]

  • "Had a lovely stay here."

    Clean and modern throughout. Loved the very comfortable super king size bed, the plush towels and the big TV. The kitchen is well equipped for people who do want to cook meals at the cottage. It is located next to a walkway, which takes you down to the centre of Bakewell in a few minutes. .

The property

This semi-detached home sits in the attractive market town of Bakewell, within the scenic Peak District National Park.

Delightfully presented throughout and situated just a short walk from the town’s amenities, Wayland House is a great choice for a couple or a small family looking to break away and enjoy the delights of the Peak District.

The lounge offers a bright and airy feel with an inviting corner sofa situated in front of the Smart TV, complimented by an electric fire.

Move into the kitchen and get to work on a home-made favourite, utilising the electric oven and gas hob, microwave, and fridge/freezer, whilst the washing machine comes in handy for your laundry needs.

Heading up to the first floor, the attention to detail continues, with the master housing a super-king-size bed and pretty, soft furnishings whilst there is a king-size bed in the second bedroom.

Awaken from a leisurely slumber and freshen up in the bathroom before heading out to the front lawn with a coffee in hand.

Bakewell is one of the most popular towns in the Peak District and offers plenty to fill your itinerary; visit the Bakewell Old Museum, sample quality desserts at the Old Bakewell Pudding Shop, treat your loved ones to a meal at the popular Rutland Arms or explore Chatsworth House with its lavish interior and expansive gardens.

The surrounding area is well served for cyclists and walkers, with the town situated at the start of the Monsal Trail, whilst the rolling limestone hills of the White Peak and the dramatic moorlands and gritstone edges of the Dark Peak provide endless opportunities for exploring via the extensive network of public footpaths and open access land.

Head to Derby for a fun-filled day out, home to the impressive Derby Cathedral, The Museum of Making at Derby Silk Mill and the Derby Museum and Art Gallery, whilst Matlock is also worth a visit with its Gulliver’s Kingdom and the Peak District Mining Museum.

Choose Wayland House for a delightful base in the Peak District.

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.
