This is the second time we have stayed at Maggie's house and will be back! Super well stocked, cosy and fun place to stay. Close to town and great walks. Works really well with groups/2 families. Owner great to deal with and helpful. Handy being able to park in the courtyard. Loved all the books and DVDs for a winter stay - perfect after a good walk in the Peaks.
We all (12) had a great time at this house. The kids had loads of fun with all of the toys & films that were provided (especially the marble run game!) and loved hanging out in each others sizeable rooms. Well equipped kitchen, perfect for cooking the festive dinner and huge dining table to seat us all. Quirky house just minutes walk from town, shops, cafes, pubs and play parks. Bakewell is really pretty and was lovely for us all to wander around. Tremendous way to bring in 2018!
What a wonderful place to spend Xmas with family. Loads of room for everyone and I’ve never stayed anywhere so well equipped.
The support by the owners was also exceptional.
Would highly recommend to anyone
A first family Christmas for 12 years. We travelled from South Lakes, our daughter and family from Redbourn and sonTom and his wife flew in from Dallas.
The cottage was perfect. An extremely well well equipped kitchen five good bedrooms with fresh white bed linen. Towels for everyone clean and soft. We have had the very best time. Excellent recommendations for eating out which we did twice but were more than happy to self cater. Lots of room for everyone to,have their own space or gather together.
Maggie could not have been more helpful before our visit and whilst there. Immediate response to any queries.
Cannot recommend highly enough. We are already thinking of Xmas 2019 when it will be our turn again to organise a Christmas location convenient for all our travelling family.
Even before reaching the cottage the communication with Maggie was excellent, letting me know everything I might need to know and answering every question quickly and was really friendly.
The cottage was perfect, the 12 of us had loads of room and nobody was stepping on anybody else's toes to get around. Everything was in great condition and good quality so it really felt like a home for the weekend. Comfy beds for everyone and the living room was an amazing space for everyone to sit around and relax, even with all 12 of us!
There was lots of information for getting the most out of the house and for the local area - the house is a less than 5 minute walk into the centre of Bakewell so amazingly well located fro getting around! We had cars with us but didn't need them the whole weekend (a bus to Chatsworth and its Christmas market and walks around Bakewell).
Everyone said what an amazing time they had and how much they loved the cottage - we'd definitely go back!
