About the property

Butts Cottage in Bakewell, Derbyshire, England - 4 Star Visit Britain Rated Cottage On A Quiet Lane With Car Parking

Butts Cottage is a charming Georgian cottage situated on a quiet private lane 500 yds from the centre of Bakewell. It has 2 bedrooms, a generous bathroom with separate shower and bath, a very well equipt kitchen, a cosy lounge and a cellar/utility room which is ideal for keeping a few bottles of wine cool. Outside, the courtyard which belongs to the cottage, allows you to sit out and have drink or even have a meal at the table and chairs provided. As it's a busy market town parking is always at a premium and so the designated parking space on the lane is a real bonus. Free Wi-Fi is available

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 cottage in 2005

Why Charles Kirkman chose Bakewell

Christine and I moved to the area 18 years ago and set up a business providing services to local residents and businesses which has enabled us to become part of the community and also to come to know the area very well.

We love the beauty of the countryside but also the diversity in the villages, the local customs and festivals and of course the people who live here.

Bakewell is in the centre of the Peak District and is a real tourist attraction in its own right, but it also makes the surrounding area very accessible whether by car, on foot or by public transport.

What makes this cottage unique

Whilst on a gentle hill the cottage is truly within easy walking distance of the town centre and other attractions. It is near the church and the Bakewell Museum for example. Parking in Bakewell is always an issue so we ensured each of our properties have designated parking, and at Butts Cottage there is a place for one cars.

Butts Cottage is rated 4 Stars by the Tourist Board and has the modern facilities you would expect but at the same time retaining many features and the charm of a quaint old cottage. Free Wi-Fi is available.

Georgian Cottage, 5 Minutes Walk From The Centre Of Bakewell
average rating of 4.875 based on 8 reviews

We absolutely loved the cottage, just what we wanted, situated in the most beautiful Bakewell town.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was just as it stated. We wanted for nothing everything was provided. It was situated within walking distance to Bakewell and an ideal base if you want to tour round the peaks. Plenty of places to sit and have afternoon tea or plenty of local pubs etc if you want a meal any time of the day or evening. Would definitely recommend BUTTS COTTAGE and we hope to visit it again.

Very nice cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

The Georgian cottage was a lovely cozy cottage near the center of town. It was a great location from which to explore the area including Chatsworth and the surrounding villiages. The cottage was stocked with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. There was even bread waiting for us on arrival. Check in was easy as the directions provided were clear and accurate. The cottage was very roomy for the two of us and the parking for one car was right outside the entrance area; very handy. The kitchen had all the essentials needed for cooking for our stay. We really enjoyed the cottage and would recommend it highly.

We consistently seek to improve all 3 properties we own, including Anne Cottage and Brew House, which are also really well situated in Bakewell, so that we provide a really great experience for anyone staying with us.

Beautiful homely cottage. Very clean and well laid out, catering for everything that was needed for a comfortable break. The thoughtful act of leaving provisions was greatly appreciated. Excellent location opposite the church and only a short distance to the stunning town of Bakewell. Highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Its always very satisfying when we receive such positive comments as we try to create the same homely feel and standards in all 3 of our cottages which include Anne Cottage and Brew House which are also in central Bakewell and can be found on the Owners Direct website too.
