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
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!!
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
This is a great little two bedroom cottage in Bakewell not far from the town centre. The layout makes great use of the available space spread over four floors including a utility room in the lower ground floor (leading to the back yard), living room and kitchen on the ground floor, twin bedroom and family bathroom on the first floor and a double bedroom with en suite on the second floor. The living room, bathroom and both bedrooms are a comfortable size, the kitchen and en suite are quite small but perfectly usable (the kitchen includes a four seat dining table too!) and would comfortably cater for a family of four. The cottage comes with its own off-road parking space.
On arrival the cottage was clean, towels were provided, as well as bedding and logs for the wood burner and Christmas decorations had been put up.
The route to the town centre is via a rather steep hill and the stairs in the cottage are quite steep and narrow and may not be suited to people with mobility problems. The front of the cottage is accessed via about six steps from either the car park or the town centre route. We were able to negotiate the latter with our child's pushchair.
The cottage owner was very helpful and thorough while organizing my visit and answered most questions before they had even been asked.
Overall, I can recommend this cottage highly and would consider staying in it again when my family next stays in Bakewell.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
