About Richard Thomson
The owners are Richard and Christine who bought the cottage in a delapidated state and have lovingly restored it to its former glory. The cottage has all the modern facilities but maintains its original character with sloping ceilings, narrow stairs ,oak beams and original quarry tiled floor.
Richard Thomson purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Richard Thomson chose Bakewell
Bakewell is the jewel in the crown of the Peak National park. It is ideally located in the middle of the park making all areas easily accessible. There is always something going off in Bakewell whether it be Bakewell show or one of the speciality or farmers markets. Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are both close by and both are well worth visiting. If the weather is not good for walking then the shops,pubs and restaurants in Bakewell give you an alternative day out and an excuse to sample the Bakewell pudding!!
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage enjoys dedicated off road parking in a private car park (accessed within 10 metres of the front door). The property benefits from two seperate bathrooms (en-suite to master) making it ideal for two couples to go away together but to both have their own facilities. Whilst the property is in a quite residential area it is less than a 5 minute walk into the centre of Bakewell along a pedestrian footpath. There is Internet access (wifi) within the cottage free to use by our guests

A perfect cottage in a perfect location
We had a great few days over our October half term. Knowing that the weather can be unpredictable, we wanted somewhere that was well-placed for walks on good days but also had the potential for pottering around shops on not-so-good days. This cottage is perfect for that. We were able to leave the car in the designated parking space (always a bonus!) and take any number of walks (including a lovely round trip to Haddon Hall and back via Over Haddon) straight from the cottage door. Chatsworth is a short drive away, as is Matlock Bath. Of an evening (and on the rainy day!) we took the path into Bakewell itself for a potter (only a 5 minute walk, albeit longer on the way back after having eaten - it's quite steep!!). The cottage itself has great views across Bakewell and the Derbyshire countryside, is beautifully furnished and benefits from having 2 bathrooms. We felt at home! I'd wholeheartedly recommend it if you're looking for a stay in the heart of Derbyshire.
Cottage was supplied with everything we could possibly need and the owner was exceptionally helpful when contacted. The cottage was walking distance from Bakewell and the village had everything you could want from shopping to eating. Also centrally located for visiting Chatsworth House. There was so much to do that we've decided we will definitely be back for a return visit!
Super central comfortable well equipped cottage
Close to Chatsworth for RHS Show and to NT properties. No need to drive to Bakewell as footpath right by cottage takes 5 minutes! Eyam plague village close by well worth a visit, fascinating stain glass window in church depicting 1665-6 plague. NT house in village, beautiful gardens. Countryside unspoilt lovely scenery just turn left out of Yelland road. Fabulous cottage!
Wonderful traditional but modernised terraced cottage
Lovely view from Bedroom 2 on the top floor with ensuite. Bedroom 1 near family bathroom on first floor. Modernised tastefully. Own parking space. Easy few minute walk into Bakewell with its excellent shops, pubs and restaurants. Wonderful peaceful location with excellent patio area out front overlooking well-tended gardens and more distant trees. Owners Richard and Christine very helpful. Would go again.
Character cottage in great location
Although weather was against us (rain most days) we still enjoyed our stay, with visits to Chatsworth, Eyam, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall. The walk into Bakewell was a pleasure, which meant dining out was relaxing with no drink/driving worries.
Cottage was very warm (first few days a bit chilly outside) and plenty of hot water. Richard (owner) was very helpful with a couple of minor problems re tuning in the TV and fixing the bathroom shower on/off control. Top bedroom is a delight - double windows means it had a good 'feel' and the views across open country are uplifting!
Very little traffic noise and access to the car parking space is very easy.
Good to have two sets of keys - many properties only provide one.
We would like to return to this area again hopefully to do some more walking, and this cottage would be an ideal base.
