Bakewell, Peak District National Park, England
A lovely listed former mill cottage dating back to the 1700s. Charmingly extended and beautifully renovated it provides lots accommodation in the market town of Bakewell. It has one large living room and lots of small cosy rooms. 12 people have plenty of space here and do not feel on top of one another. Convenient location.Set on the main road 200 yds from town centre great location, but close the big double doors and you are in a private and quiet spot, with fabulous views from the garden. There are many activities to do from the house from walking, fishing, geocaching, paragliding, balloon rides, swimming, stately home visiting to theme parks like Alton Towers.
