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 House in 2007
Why Charles Kirkman chose Bakewell
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 22 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.
What makes this House unique
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.

Home from Home
The house is lovely with plenty of space in all the rooms. Open plan kitchen and lounge meant the cook could still be part of conversation. Three bathrooms very convenient. The only problem was parking. The opening to the garage is very small (1 inch spare either side of wing mirrors) and in an awkward position close to walls. The space outside garage is fine and the 3rd space is on parking permit but unable to find a free space at busy times.
Lovely cottage in bakewell
We had a lovely weekend away in bakewell staying here. Location is perfect bring just a very short walk into town. House has everything you’d need.
Thank you for a lovely stay
Brilliant week in Bakewell
Excellent property. Very convenient for the town centre but quiet as back from the road. Lovely terrace with good views. Extremely well equipped kitchen with plenty of large pots and pans for cooking for 6. Ideal for 6 people. Parking as described. A little tight but adequate and we didn’t use the cars once we had parked up. Either walked or used the good local bus service. Thank you for a great week away and feel sure we will be back
A very comfortable property, in an excellent location. One or two minor problems which were overcome. Note left fpr the owner which received a very rapid reply.
Overall a very good property. Stairs might be an issue for some people.
Wehad a very happy week.
George is quite right in that he pointed out a number of minor issues caused by wear and tear and constant use however we have had a gap in bookings and so have been able rectify everything plus replace and upgrade the bed in the second bedroom.
Having said all that we are pleased George and his friends had a great time and enjoyed their holiday.
Lovely place and enjoyed our stay. Everything we could need was provided and the location could not have been better. Thank you!
Thank you Corinna for your great review. Thank you for staying and please come back in the future.
Great rental...great location... only tricky thing was parking!
I'm pleased Carolyn found Brew House to be a great place to stay but sorry she found the parking a bit tricky.
There is parking for 3 cars with the house being in the garage which will take cars up to a Mondeo size, a space behind for any size car and a Parking Permit space again which will take any size.
Unfortunately as the house is at the back of a courtyard our neighbours have allocated spaces within the courtyard so moving around is not always easy but the parking is never blocked.
