Why Richard Thomson chose Bakewell
Bakewell is the jewel in the crown of the Peak National park. It is ideally located in the middle of the park making all areas easily accessible. There is always something going off in Bakewell whether it be Bakewell show or one of the speciality or farmers markets. Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are both close by and both are well worth visiting. If the weather is not good for walking then the shops,pubs and restaurants in Bakewell give you an alternative day out and an excuse to sample the Bakewell pudding!!
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage enjoys dedicated off road parking in a private car park (accessed within 10 metres of the front door). The property benefits from two seperate bathrooms (en-suite to master) making it ideal for two couples to go away together but to both have their own facilities. Whilst the property is in a quite residential area it is less than a 5 minute walk into the centre of Bakewell along a pedestrian footpath. There is Internet access (wifi) within the cottage free to use by our guests

Cottage with beautiful views of Bakewell
Cottage in good location perfect with a short walk to the town, with it's shops, pubs and lovely walks. Views from the cottage are of Bakewell and the beautiful countryside and hills surrounding it. A great base for exploring the area .
Great little cottage in a great location
The cottage is very well located for a short walk into Bakewell town centre, but is uphill on the way back. The views from the cottage are sensational, especially from the master bedroom on the top floor. The cottage is very clean and well appointed with all the facilities you would desire. It is extremely useful to have a reserved parking space in a small town such as this. Finally the owner is extremely friendly and helpful, always responding very quickly. Will definitely return.
A well equipped cottage conversion with dedicated parking space. Walking distance of town centre.
We enjoyed our stay in the cottage which is well equipped. In a tourist centre, it was good to have an allocated off-road parking space. The cottage is in a quiet location within walking distance of the town centre ( a bit steep walking back!).
It made a good base for exploring the area. We visited Bakewell, Buxton and Derby. We also walked the Monsal Trail including viaduct and tunnels. We visited Speedwell Cavern, Peak Cavern and Peveril Castle. Bolsover Castle also made a very interesting contrast. With a longer trip we could have also included Chatsworth, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall.
There are a lot of fish and chip restaurants and we found Charles at Matlock Bath excellent.
Lovely cottage great location. Clean and well equipped
Great place to stay. We were there over New Year. Warm and cosy with the log burner and great views and walks into Bakewell (5 minutes downhill a bit more coming back) and surrounding countryside. Good instructions from owner. Had a great time.
Fab cottage in the perfect location with great views over the town. Cottage very clean and well furnished, home from home. Longstone View has everything you need. Parking space is an added bonus with a short walk to town. Would recommend and will stay again.
Thank you for your lovely review .We are so pleased that you enjoyed the Peaks and your stay in our cottage. You are most welcome anytime.
It was a very nice property parking etc.had all that we needed .
All was positive about the cottage, except remain double bed, we both slept really badly in it all week. the bed frame and the mattress could play a tune, it was like sleeping in a bouncy castle, one moved the other woke up. think the springs have died. please oil the bed frame to stop it squeaking and invest in a decent mattress. apart from that we had a lovely stay. thank you.
I am glad that you enjoyed the facilities that the cottage has to offer but am most disappointed with regard to the comments about the bed.I will certainly make it a priority to review the bed and make any necessary changes.This is the first time anyone has mentioned this.If you had contacted us whilst at the cottage I would have done anything within my power to rectify the issue. Kind regards and we hope to welcome you back soon Regards Richard and Christine
