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 Derbyshire Dales

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

Perfect place to stay in Bakewell

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved this cottage in Bakewell. Warm and cosy, full of character, very clean, had everything we needed and was in a lovely quiet location with beautiful views over Bakewell. The owner was very helpful. Would definitely recommend.

Restful and comfortable stay!

  • 5 of 5

Yes I would definitely recommend this holiday home. Richard followed up the very straight-forward booking with a personal phone call and emails with all the important information. Bakewell was VERY busy but we managed to find a lovely cafe/gallery which served gluten-free and vegan food - a must for us (It is called The Vines)! The Co-op is the best place to do a big shop and has nearby parking - don't confuse this Co-op with a petrol-station Co-op on the main road- which was also pleasant enough but small.

Richard and Christine were kind enough to leave a bottle of wine for us which we enjoyed immensely upon our return.

Fabulous property beautifully situated.

  • 5 of 5

The property seems freshly decorated, is well equipped and full of character. The kitchen contains everything you might need, not that we cooked.

Double bed was comfortable, neighbors quiet and a table and chairs out the front to drink some wine at and watch the sun set.

10 mins walk from the town and high enough to get lovely views. Might be a problem if a wheel chair is involved.

Richard was a pleasure to deal with.

Happy times and brilliant memories.

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at Longstone View and we were pleased to see that nothing had changed, with the exception of added Wifi which was a bonus. The cottage is set in a beautiful location and provids everything required for a really comfortable stay.

The whole family, including our two daughters have a particular fondness for Bakewell and the surrounding area and have special memories of time spent here over the last 6 years. It is always reassuring to know that at the end of a long day we can return to such a fabulous cottage. The views from all windows are amazing and have spent considerable time just standing on the top floor gazing out!

The cottage is extremely well and thoughtfully equipped and situated only a few minutes walk in to Bakewell. There is so much to do in the area: walking, bike trails, caves and caverns and shopping. Plus plenty of wonderful places to eat.

Certainly won't be our last stay here and will recommend to our friends.

A great cottage in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cottage is exactly as described! It was far enough up the hill to afford you spectacular views from the main bedroom, but still only a 5-10 minute walk into Bakewell.

Everything you could possibly want for your stay is provided for and was also very good value for money!!

Although our weather was very wet, we stil managed to find some walks (thanks to the owners extensive library) and also try out all of the Bakewell pubs. Tip for food would be Manners in Bakewell and the Bull in Ashford in the water (2 mile walk from the cottage, no mud involved!)

Would stay again no question, thanks for renting to us.

Sweet little country cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was clean, very comfortable and generally well equipped. We enjoyed staying there for the week, despite the weather not being very good. When fine, it was nice sitting outside overlooking the cottage gardens and the neighbours were friendly. The two bathrooms were very useful and the beds ensured a good night's sleep. A welcome bottle of wine was also much appreciated, as were the numerous books and leaflets about the local area.

The steps are quite steep for going upstairs, but we were warned about this. Unfortunately one of the showers was not working on arrival, but the owners had already arranged for a plumber and a new shower was in place the following day. We also noticed the fridge freezer was a little noisy. Wifi would be a useful addition and a book containing all instructions to operate items e.g. Central heating, TV, oven etc so they were all in one place, would be good.

Bakewell is a short walk away (be aware it is a steep walk coming back!) There are lots of pleasant shops there and some good cafes. The old museum near the cottage is also worth a visit. Other places we enjoyed visiting were Haddon Hall, Chatsworth House, Heights of Abraham and Carsington Water.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to review our cottage and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We constantly strive to improve our facilities and we have installed Wifi to provide free internet access for our guests. Longstone View is a Victorian Cottage with many period features including the original staircase. This does however mean that our cottage is not suitable for people with mobility issues as the stairs are steep (see picture of the original staircase in our picture gallery). The shower was replaced as soon as we were made aware of the problem. Fortunately the cottage does have two seperate bathrooms with showering facilities in both. We are so pleased you enjoyed Bakewell and we would love to welcome you back should you visit the area again.
