  • "What a lovely holiday with great facilities."

    If I could offer anything it would be that a large towel and small hand towel per person would be nice. Us ladies like to use one on our hair too. Small one pint of milk just so when we land from the south coast it would have been nice to have a cuppa before going out to find the shops

  • "The property is beautiful, and is in a perfect location near to Bakewell."

    The house was clean and the beds were comfy, and the shared pool was a real bonus! Our hosts were so helpful, coming to help with the extra requests we’d made for the baby. We will definitely be booking to come again next year, thank you!

  • "One of the bedrooms didn't have a window as apparently it had broken in the storm."

    We weren't told about this before our arrival, or offered any compensation which was disappointing for a house costing this much. Also, the ovens only had one shelf between them which made it very difficult to make use of both ovens. Again, very disappointing for a house that we paid a lot of money for. The kitchen was really too small for 8 people, not helped by the very large chairs around the table. Perhaps someone can offer us some money back for the bedroom that was in complete darkness for the whole of our stay? Many thanks Elizabeth Elizabeth

  • "Lovely cottage which we would consider renting again."

    Swimming pool and games room added extra fun to our stay. Not far from Chatsworth which we visited for their Christmas lights. Would recommend this cottage but would add that the TV needs updating and the heating was set quite hot.

  • "Had a wonderful stay."

    The place is rural but beautiful. Near Bakewell and so very convenient. The indoor pool was warm and lovely.Very well equipped kitchen. Bedding and towels were clean and comfortable. My only advice is the address provided on the Sykes website takes us to the farm and we all struggled to find the right place. If you put the address as Bakewell Retreats on google maps it takes us to the right place.

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.
