About the property

Anne Cottage in Bakewell, Derbyshire, England - A Short Walk To The Town Centre And Easy Access To All The Places Of Interest

Anne Cottage which has a Visit Britain 4 Star rating is in Bakewell, famous for its Bakewell Pudding, which nestles on the banks of the River Wye and is a tourist attraction with its Monday market and old world charm. Unusually because it was once two cottages, there is a separate staircase to each en-suite bedroom, one of which has a king size bed and the other twin beds which affords our guests the extra privacy of separate suites. The cottage is about 800 yds up hill from the centre of town and so offers the visitor the opportunity to walk into town to sample the many pubs and restaurants or visit the Monday market where you might pick up a bargain. There is a great selection of shops selling antiques and gifts, walking gear and some fabulous food shops to tempt you into something delicious for dinner. Bakewell is also a great centre to access the beautiful countryside whether you wish to drive or walk, and attractions such as Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Alton Towers. We now also offer free Wi-Fi access with the log on details in the handbook.

About Charles Kirkman

Christine and I live in Baslow just 4 miles from Bakewell and so are able to be on hand to look after our cottages and our guests if there are any problems. We have a local business which provides services all over the Peak District and so we love the area and know it well and are always pleased to give local information to help you make the most of your stay.

Charles Kirkman purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Charles Kirkman chose Bakewell

Christine and I moved to the area 19 years ago and set up a business providing services to local residents and businesses which has enabled us to become part of the community and also to come to know the area very well.

We love the beauty of the countryside but also the diversity in the villages, the local customs and festivals and of course the people who live here.

Bakewell is in the centre of the Peak District and is a real tourist attraction in its own right, but it also makes the surrounding area very accessible whether by car, on foot or by public transport.

What makes this cottage unique

Whilst on a hill the cottage is truly within easy walking distance of the town centre and other attractions. It is near the church and the Bakewell Museum for example. Parking in Bakewell is always an issue so we ensured each of our properties have designated parking, and at Anne Cottage there are places for two cars. For your convenience free Wi-Fi access is available.

Anne Cottage is rated 4 Stars by the Tourist Board and has the modern facilities you would expect but at the same time retaining many 17th century features and the charm of an old quaint cottage.

Well equipped and comfortable

A very old property that the owners had done a great job in making comfortable. Everything needed for a self catering holiday- comfortable beds; really well equipped kitchen; Wi-Fi; smart tv etc. Top marks for cleanliness too!

Owner's Response: Thanks Moira for your great feedback and your appreciation of the time and effort put into making Anne Cottage really comfortable and homely and just the place for a quick break away from it all. We are planning a few improvements in the kitchen to make it even better shortly and you'll be very welcome back next year.

Owner's Response: What can be added to such a great review other than we are absolutely delighted that Maggie and her family enjoyed Anne Cottage so much. It was also great to receive a lovely note of thanks from Maggie. We make similar efforts to delight our guests in Butts Cottage and Brew House which are also centrally located in Bakewell, have lots of character and great facilities including parking.

Excellent cottage, very well placed, near church and close to the town centre

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week in Bakewell and loved it. Very nice town close to a lot of the major attractions in the Peak District. We had nice walks and visited a few places around. The cottage is nice and has all what is needed for a family of 4 to spend a nice time.

Owner's Response: Sorry about the lack of bread and milk Maureen, however we left the day before to go to Cardiff for our daughter's graduation and in all the rush and last minute arrangements overlooked putting it in, please forgive us? The cottage dates back to the 17th century and was once two very small cottages built partially into the hillside. Unfortunately there was no priority in those days for leisure space outside and there is therefore only space for the very small enclosed yard. Because of this we deliberately don't include any mention of it in the details so as to ensure nobody is misled into assuming there is more space than in reality there is. We appreciate that you liked the cottage, found it convenient and thought it had everything you needed.

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Along with our neighbours we travelled through England and Scotland on a 3 week vacation. Ann Cottage was near to the end of our trip and we had seen many heritage sites along the way, but to spend 3 nights inside a cottage that dated back to the 17th Century was a highlight to our trip.

We arrived to find a cozy, very clean accommodation with all the necessities to make our stay comfortable.
