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.
The property was well situated with lovely views across to Wirksworth. It was a good base to explore popular parts of Derbyshire. Just need to mention a couple of things which the owner may not be aware of. We arrived in pouring rain and there was a possible problem with gutter just above the main entrance as water was gushing down. The only other thing was that the baking trays were past their best - we were cooking meals every night and needed to use them. It didn't become a problem. Overall we had a wonderful week and would certainly return again..
