Delightful.

5 of 5
All our holiday breaks are taken in cottages and Dane Cottage was up there with the best. It was so well equipped with everything you are ever likely to need and we have never experienced having all the useful extras that were in the kitchen cupboard. Hilary has thought of everything. We had some cool nights when we were there so the wood burner made it really cosy. We were very entertained by the sheep in the field below and all the birds eating right outside the kitchen window. Sunday lunch at the Ship Inn was perfect on a rainy Sunday. We would not hesitate to recommend this lovely cottage.

Absolutely perfect!

A beautiful, homely cottage conveniently situated on a quiet road just a few steps from Bakewell village centre. Everything you could possibly need is to be found in the cottage and the owners provide clear, written instructions on how to work all appliances. We particularly enjoyed the Esse gas stove in the lounge, which looked just like a wood burning stove but was much easier to deal with. Very cosy on a chilly evening! The booking process, key pickup and resident parking permit all worked seamlessly. The owners left a lovely welcome pack of wine, biscuits, milk, tea and coffee, which was much appreciated after our drive. It's only a small thing but this was the first time we've ever been self-catering and haven't had to go out to buy washing-up liquid and salt! The stairs are quite steep and narrow, which may be a challenge for some elderly guests but other than that, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.
