|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Free Wi-Fi is now available. Unusual spacious property being a former Brewery and artists studio on three floors offering a large family living space incorporating the kitchen, dining and living areas on the top floor. This room also has a huge skylight which make it very light and airy. There are 3 bedrooms each with a bathroom on the floor below and garage and utility room at the ground floor. It has a patio and rock garden outside which will seat 8 with distant views to the hills beyond. The house stands to the rear of a courtyard away from the main road where the rear entrance and car parking are also situated. The front entrance leads to the patio and down a path to the road from which it is a short and level 2 minute walk into town.
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 house in 2007
Brew House is such an unusual property in that it offers the friends or family group the opportunity to socialise together in warm comfortable surroundings whatever activities you want to do.It is very close to the centre of town yet is also quiet and has great amenities in parking and accommodation.
Christine and I moved to the area 18 years ago and set up a business providing services to local residents and businesses which has enabled us to become a part of the community and also get to know the area very well.
We love the beauty of the countryside and the diversity of the different villages, the local customs and festivals and of course the people who live here.
Bakewell is the centre of the Peak District and is a tourist attraction in itself, but it also makes the surrounding area very accessible by car, on foot or by public transport.
Brew House is very spacious and rather unusual as it is an "upside down" house. The benefits of this are that the large living space makes a very light and warm area where everybody can get together and enjoy one another's company whether cooking, eating or just relaxing. Free Wi-Fi is now also available.
There are very few if any other houses available in Bakewell with the accommodation the Brew House offers in having 3 bedrooms and bathrooms and parking for 3 cars all within 300 yds of the Town Centre.
The walk into town is flat and level and so is very easy giving great access to the shops, pubs and restaurants without getting the car out.
Cannot fault this property. The location was perfect. The rooms were exactly as advertised. For 3 couples there was enough space to ensure not on top of each other, but could enjoy each other's company. My only regret is that due to the time of year we didn't use the terrace, because we all reckoned it would be idyllic in the summer. Maybe next time.
We had a great week at Brew House and it suited our needs perfectly. House was very spacious, and had everything we required for 3 generations of our family plus dog. Lovely, clean, comfortable and very warm which was appreciated as we experienced every weather condition possible during an Easter break, including sun and snow. The open plan lounge, kitchen diner was great and it was lovely to chill out on an evening on a sofa each... Bliss! Parking is tight but never a problem for us, we are used to town parking and if two spaces at house don't suit permit parking is literally a stones throw and no problem at all. Terrace garden is lovely, all enclosed and our dog approved!! Perfect location for 5 minute pleasant stroll into Bakewell and central location for exploring caves, Plague village etc. Courteous and pleasant communication from owners throughout. We certainly recommend Brew House and will return again. Many thanks to Charles and Christina.
We had a girlie weekend for our 50th birthdays and Brew House was perfect, plenty of space, lovely rooms, well looked after. Welcome parcel is a lovely touch. Some reviews complain about the parking. Yes, it's tight but to have 3 parking spaces in the heart of Bakewell is fabulous. Would definitely recommend this place
My party of 5, 3 small dogs and I stayed here for a short break in November.
Brew House was perfect for us as it allowed us to all stay together and was the perfect location for my wedding weekend, with being so close to Bakewell Town Hall and my reception venues. The dogs were happy with their daily walk past the river and to the park. Bakewell is such a lovely place for dogs.
The parking was another big bonus but, as others have said, it can be tricky getting out of the courtyard when the other residents are there too! Lots of manaeorving!!
The living area is the highlight and we felt so at home. The house is airy and big enough to feel spacious even with a large party. The house was immaculately clean and modern. The heating was very efficient and very warm, even in November!
We wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you!
The Brew House is ideal for two or three couples or a family with three pleasant bedrooms and three modern bathrooms. The property is "quirky", being on three levels with the living area on the top floor, but this only adds to its charm and we loved the little patio garden with views over the town. The kitchen is very well equipped and the living accommodation comfortable. Parking in Progress Court can be a little hairy but the fact that the Brew House is only a short walk into town so easily more than made up for any slight parking inconvenience. The river walk into the centre of Bakewell is delightful. We had a great stay and would book again.
Not wishing to be disrespectful to the owners,but you need to show pictures of the garden area and parking area,and also state that one of the parking spaces is down the road on a public car park ,we took two vehicles,mine wouldn't go in the garage,and when we squeezed in my father in laws BMW,we had to have it sticking out of the garage in order to shut the house door, the garage door wouldn't shut down ,so there was no security, my car couldn't be parked in front of the garage, because it obstructed the neighbouring flats from accessing the bins.
The entrance to the courtyard is on a blind spot in the road,so you have to pull up on the main road,and reverse in ,the car park is also shared by 9, or 10 other flats, so it is unbelievably cramped when all the cars are there,and is impossible to turn your car around in,
The patio garden ,is totally unsuitable for dogs as there is no grass area,and it is surrounded by onlooking neighbouring properties,no privacy,
The property was so unsuitable ,that having stayed at various different holiday cottages in the area over the years,we imeadiatly went out to try and find one ,that was available,luckily we found one ,but that cost me an extra £520 ,so our 1st night was not a good start to our holiday,
Descriptions are deceptive, On a positive note ,I must say that the bedrooms and main room looked very suitable ,and were described and
shown well in the photos,
