About Nicky Grandy

We are brother, Martyn, and sister, Nicola (Nicky). Martyn and his wife live in Bakewell close-by to the holiday houses so can be called upon to provide information on the local area and address any problems. Nicky lives in Norfolk and is the booking contact.

Nicky Grandy purchased this house in 2007

Why Nicky Grandy chose Derbyshire Dales

When purchased, the properties were divided into ground floor and first floor flats. The idea was for our elderly mother to live in the ground floor flat while we would let out the upstairs flat. However, when our mother decided that she would move to a residential home we decided to convert the property into two, three-bedroomed houses and to let them out as holiday properties. This required complete gutting and renovation - a lot of work - and we finally opened for business in April 2011.

What makes this house unique

The properties are only a short walk from the centre of Bakewell so are very handy for shopping and eating out in the evening without the need to use a car. Likewise, there are walks and cycle routes close by. Both houses have secure storage in the gardens for bicycles and outdoor gear so are ideal for those planning an energetic holiday whatever the weather! And both have off-road parking for two cars. As the houses are adjoining, they are perfect for larger groups (up to 14), or grandparents who like to holiday with their children and grandchildren but who also like some quiet time!

Guestbook comments from the owner

June 2014: Thanks for a lovely stay in such a well-appointed and comfortable cottage. Good location for all attractions and a lovely 10-minute walk into the centre of Bakewell.

August 2014: Thank you for a wonderful stay. Thoroughly enjoyed our week , beautiful, homely cottage. Lovely and clean. Everything we could ask for and more. Our children have loved being here, especially the surprise of the attic room to play in. Have visited some fantastic places again as we have been to Derbyshire several times now but we will certainly be returning to stay at “Ribblesdale”, it being a cosy place to come home to at the end of a busy day. Will definitely recommend also.

October 2014: Our 2nd stay this year – we love coming here – a wonderful place.

Christmas/New Year 2015: We had a wonderful 3 weeks here. Fantastic, warm and comfortable house. The owners were friendly and helpful. Thank you!

Cottage for divers visiting Holm Bank

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for our needs. Needed something suitable for 3 divers with lots of kit, therefore the place needed to be spacious, have good parking, within walking distance to the town and easy access to the mine but most importantly warm. Upon arrival we were greeted and all our needs accommodated. Will definitely be using the cottage again on all future visits to Holm Bank.

Beautiful, well equiped and clean cottages.

  • 5 of 5

We rented these beautiful, well equiped, spacious, fresh, bright and very clean cottages last August. They are set in a tranquil location with a few minutes walk from the center of Bakewell. The gardens are lovely and the Wifi connection as a bonus was appreciated by all. Walks in the countryside are from the doorstep and amongst others we walked through the fields over to Lathkill dale where the views are outstanding. On the personal side we did miss and this for hygeinic means a dishwasher, we were full capacity for the cottages with a small baby and because we rented both cottages a gate in the garden would have been very useful. Having the attics was great for storage. All in all the cottages were a wonderful experience.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your great review. It's really good to know that our cottages provided a comfortable stay and convenient location for your holiday. We note your comment about the absence of a dishwasher. When renovating the houses we did think about including these but space was the limiting factor unfortunately. We also note your comment about a gate between the back gardens and will make access possible in future for groups renting both houses.

The town of Bakewell is easy to find and may be approached from many directions, all of which are scenic routes in their own right. It is just over a 30-minute drive from junction 29 on the M1. The nearest train stations are Chesterfield (14 miles), Matlock (9 miles) and Buxton (13 miles). Manchester International and East Midlands airports are about an hour away. There are regular bus services from Chesterfield, Manchester and Derby.


Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, many delightful villages and fantastic walks are within a 10-15 minute drive. There are also good walks to do straight from the houses. Buxton is about a 20 minute drive and Alton Towers about a 50 minute drive.
