  • "Super stay at Cuckoo, lovely welcome tray with tea biscuits etc and sweets for my grandchildren which went down a treat!"

    Very comfortable, we had everything we needed The pool was wonderful, so warm and clean. Smashing field at the back to exercise the doggie! Hope to come again soon for longer next time! Would definitely recommend to friends and family and my daughter has already shared to her families as she runs baby and toddler groups! Thank you for a wonderful stay. Everything was just perfect!! :)

  • "We had a lovely stay and liked the quirkiness off the cottage."

    The beds were really comfortable. There are a few maintenance issues. Front door of one of the kitchen cupboards is loose. The zip on the sofa cushion is broken. The ring on the towel rail is loose in the bathroom. We had to reset the boiler most days as it kept going off. We stayed for a week and think that our towels could have been changed.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Cuckoo."

    The cottage was really cosy and after a long journey, the complimentary Halloween sweets and wood burning stove were just the ticket. The swimming pool and games room enhanced the stay even more! The location was perfect. Owners were friendly and professional. We look forward to returning!

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.
