Perfect for families who want the peace and quiet of the countryside but with many amenities within a short walk. Spend your days lazing in the garden or relaxing by the fire with good company.
Within 500 metres of the centre of Bakewell, this former private boarding house sleeps eight people across four bedrooms. Set on the edge of the Peak District National Park and surrounded by glorious and dramatic countryside, this wonderfully decorated two-storey house offers inviting dining areas, private parking for six cars and six bathrooms, one of which houses a large copper bath that overlooks the picturesque, enclosed garden.
The kitchen/diner is a place to prepare and enjoy hearty breakfasts, brunches and lunches. For grander dinners, and even a spot of supper, the welcoming dining room opposite will set the mood perfectly. Many a film will be watched, glasses refilled, and sofa snuggles sought in the lounge, which benefits from a dual-aspect wood burner and plenty of natural light pouring in through bi-fold doors which beg to be thrown open in summer. A handy utility room sits nearby, as does a shower room, a separate bathroom and two king-size bedrooms, both with en-suite shower rooms. Upstairs, a twin bedroom sits close to another family bathroom – this one with his and hers sinks and a large copper bath overlooking the garden through switchable privacy glass. A few short steps on the first floor lead to a super-king-size bedroom enjoying views over Bakewell and the surrounding countryside. The patio end of the sprawling garden, surrounded by mature trees, is perfect for al fresco dining, and there’s plenty of room for games on the lawn around, too.
