Overview

About the property

A beautiful Grade II listed Georgian cottage in the heart of Bakewell. Perfectly situated in a quiet location opposite Bakewell's All Saints Church, yet within 2 minutes walk from the centre of the town with all its amenities including cafes, pubs, restaurants and independent retail shops.

Wainstones has been recently renovated and now boasts a perfect balance of Georgian charm with modern convenience. The cottage is ideal for couples or families of up to 4. Provision can be made for 5, but please note that an additional nightly fee applies.

Ideally located in Bakewell, it is within easy reach of Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and all the Peak District has to offer, and Bakewell is exceptionally well served by local public transport.

The cottage is fully centrally heated but also benefits from the convenience of remote controlled traditional Esse cast iron gas stoves in both the lounge and the kitchen. A perfect haven for relaxation at the end of the day.

Generous weekly discounts apply. Discounts are also offered for mid week breaks for a couple.

About The Owner

I'm happily married to Kay and we have two teenage daughters.

I've spent the last year or so renovating Wainstones. Before that I worked for a large corporation where I provided programme management.

We live in Over Haddon (a small village) near to Bakewell, and absolutely adore the Peak District where we have lived for the last 16 years or so.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2014

Why The Owner chose Bakewell

Because it's right in the heart of a beautiful small market town - Bakewell.

It is a great location for exploring the Peak District. You don't even need a car, as the bus network allows you to explore the Peak District.

After a hard day's walking or sightseeing, come home to the cosy cottage, which has everything you need for a relaxing and comfortable stay.

What makes this cottage unique

A stone's throw from Bakewell, yet very quiet.

Central heating throughout, and cast iron gas stoves ensure that you have a cosy welcoming stay.

The property has been renovated to a high standard, but retains the old world charm of a Georgian townhouse.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The best place to stay in the Peak District

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to Wainstones and once again it didn't disappoint. The cottage is in a superb location for walking in the Peaks and also for walking into town. Everything you need has been provided by Chris and Kay, who are wonderful hosts. I would certainly recommend and hope to visit again soon.
