HEART OF BAKEWELL, HOLIDAY HOME RENTAL

Bakewell House Rental Photos and Description

Five bedroom house comfortably sleeps 12

The house has been developed over several decades in 1830 it was a mill workers cottage with a tinkers work shop behind. It is now a rambling house with lots of rooms that feels very specious because of its unusual layout.

There are two double bedrooms, two twin bedrooms, one bedroom with single bed and a captains bed (ideal for children). There is a large living room - with a double sofa bed. There is one family bathroom with bath and shower over, sink toilet and bidet. There is also a family wet room with a large shower as well as sink and toilet. There is also another toilet off the laundry room. 3 toilets in all. The large living room is at the rear of the property - this is where the TV facilities Freeview, DVD and video is located. There is a kitchen with table to eat at - seats 8/10 as well as a separate dining room which comfortably seats 14. Games room with Table football. Because we use the house a lot as well there are lots of home comforts which make it a home from home.

Bakewell: The home of the original Bakewell Pudding, the town is picturesque and genteel. There are many local amenities within walking distance of the cottage. The house is right in Bakewell so you don't actually need to use the car at all as so many activities, facilities and shops are accessible on foot. It is a hot spot for geocachers with a good number of good quality stashes in the area. There are of course the selection of 'original' Bakewell Pudding and tart makers and there shops. Go to the cattle market if you are there on a Monday with a fascinating experience, but keep your hands by your sides, bidding is fast and furious! There is a great swimming pool

3 min from the house, which as the full range of family splash to adults only swim times. There is also the fabulous old house museum a few minutes from the house. Haddon Hall is exactly 2 miles away and Chatsworth house not much further.

And beyond: The wonderful peak district is a great place to walk, cycle or just enjoy the view. Its beauty has intrigued film and TV drama creators for some time, Haddon Hall has been used in Jane Eyre, Sherlock Holmes and the film version of pride and prejudice. In fact it is said that Jane Austin modelled Pemberly on Chatsworth House not far from the cottage. The Caves at Castleton, the Crich Tram Museum, Sudbury Hall museum of childhood . There are many things to do in the area. One of our favourite places for Sunday Lunch is the Bulls Head in fowlow which has a great piano man on alternate Sunday lunch times try and guess the components of the medley he plays accompany your Sunday lunch. As long as you book in advance they can accommodate parties of 14 people very well, we have found! 14 people very well, we have found!

There is also a fabulous pub in Monyash for balmy summer days with kids, the local playground is next to the pub garden so you can enjoy the Sunday papers whilst the kids play in a rather fabulous playground and work up their appetite.

The Mining Museum in Matlock is an absolute must if you have kids aged anywhere between 4 and 13 .. and of course those grown up kids! It has tunnels and shafts for you to explore in the dark to get a sense of how it might have been to be a miner! A very reasonably priced fun couple of hours!

A perfect mix of modern and charm

  • 5 of 5
I love this house so much I keep coming back. I have had great holidays here with friends and family. The house is laid out in a clever way that allows large gatherings as well as having areas to get away on your own to read a book. The children love the large open lounge that leads onto a walled garden.
Bakewell has lots to see and explore and the surrounding countryside is stunning. Loads of great pubs for lazy Sunday lunches. A small local pool in walking distance from the house. The list could go on and on but I'll leave it for you to find and write in your review when you stay at this beautiful house.

A perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5
There were 8 of us when we stayed here (4 adults and 4 children) and it was perfect for families as the children can be at one end of the house and the adults, the other. We had a fantastic time and the house was clean and well-maintained but also full of character and higgledy-piggledy, which the children loved and meant that it didn't matter if it rained or not.

The house is on the edge of town (with the town a few minutes' walk away) so it was very convenient but the house also felt secluded as it is behind a high gate. The garden is large (although again higgledy-piggledy) and it has considerable off road parking.

The local area was very attractive too as Bakewell is an extremely pretty town and the surrounding countryside great whether you like walking or just pottering, with lots to see and do. The local market I remember as being particularly good.

In short I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anybody, especially families or large parties.

Breath of fresh air

  • 5 of 5
A lovely house with character situated near the centre of Bakewell and in the middle of great countryside. House good for children and adults. Off road parking helps a lot.Plenty to see/do in Bakewell and spoilt for choice in surrounding area. House has all mod cons and just feels comfy so that you relax as soon as you get in. Cant ask for more really.

Magical Holiday

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time in this house, it's so different so you really feel on holiday. It works well for us adults, the kitchen being at the heart of the house with a big table and then a huge living room and another dining room giving so much space to be in.

The kids loved being in the house, as well as outside, it was like an adventure playground to them, what with two sets of staircases going to different places, plenty of space for hide and seek and to be in whatever kingdom their imagination wanted. In the house it didn't matter what the weather was doing!

Bakewell itself is beautiful, a great mixture of shops as well as a supermarket, it's really self sufficient as a place, with even the sweetest swimming pool nestled in the centre of the town! There is so much to do within the village and Matlock, that although Chatsworth was so close we didn't get to the adventure playground there like we thought we would.

I would recommend this for any family or groups of families, it's big enough to cope with lots of people without getting on top of each other. We had a fantastic holiday where we really felt we'd had truly special time.

Car: recommended

A lovely listed former mill cottage dating back to the 1700s. Charmingly extended and beautifully renovated it provides lots accommodation in the market town of Bakewell. It has one large living room and lots of small cosy rooms. 12 people have plenty of space here and do not feel on top of one another. Convenient location. Set on the main road 200 yd from town centre great location, but close the big double doors and you are in a private and quiet spot, with fabulous views from the garden. There are many activities to do from the house from walking, fishing, geocaching, paragliding, balloon rides, swimming, stately home visiting to theme parks like Alton Towers.

Other Activities: Hot Air Ballooning, Geocaching
