We stayed at this delightful, family friendly spacious characterful house in the picturesque town of Bakewell. It is a short walk from the town and shops of this very pretty town. We didn't need to use the car all weekend as there are lots of easily accessible walks nearby. The house is spacious with a gorgeous large vaulted ceiling in the living room which gives it a lovely airy feel. The kitchen is a sit in kitchen with all mod cons, plenty of room and well equipped. The garden is charming, reached by a steep pathway of steps to a lovely seated area with a terraced garden. We will definitely visit again!
Eight of us stayed here at the beginning of June for a long weekend. Two problems with this cottage -,firstly it's absolutely right on the main road, so it's pretty noisy and there's a streetlight outside which shines brightly into one of the bedrooms and secondly and most importantly, whilst it was superficially clean, it really needed a thorough deep clean of the bathrooms, Windows, curtains, carpets etc. The carpet and net curtain in our room were very grubby. Our friends found a pair of used tights under their bed!
The Victoria Cottage in Bakewell is a most relaxing and enjoyable place, the ideal base for our photography tour in the Peak District.
The house is beautiful and has a fresh homely feel. Comfortable beds and a great spacious lounge are complemented by a well designed and superbly equipped kitchen.
We had some magic moments in the charming terrace garden with pergola and a stunning view.
Great location with all shops, pubs etc just a minute down the road, trails to the green hills on the door step and plenty of buses that take you anywhere in the area and out.
You don’t necessarily need a car to discover the Peak District.
A unique place, highly recommendable.
