Description from owner
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.
Just treat the place nicely that's all we ask. It you break something please replace it. The deposit was simply introduced to give as a little protection from those guests who don't respect the place.There is a fold down sofa bad in the games room. I do NOT advertise this as part of the main sleeping arrangements. Its separate from and not decorated to the standard of the main house, but it does mean there is an overspill place to sleep if you have an extra guest or two! It is not part of the sleeping arrangements in the rest of the property,
Further details indoors
The house has been developed over several decades in 1830 it was a mill workers cottage with a tinkers work shop behind. It is now a rambling house with lots of rooms that feels very specious because of its unusual layout.There are two Double bedrooms, two twin bedrooms, one bedroom with single bed and a captains bed (ideal for children). There is a large living room - with a double sofa bed. There is one family bathroom with bath and shower over, sink toilet and bidet. There is also a family wet room with a large shower as well as sink and toilet. There is also another toilet off the laundry room. 3 toilets in all. The large living room is at the rear of the property - this is where the TV facilities freeview, DVD and video is located with lots of videos and dvds to enjoy. Lots of books and there is a cupboard housing of children's toys. There is a kitchen with table to eat at - seats 8/10 as well as a separate dining room which comfortably seats 14. There is also a porch - handy for coats and boots without going into the main house. There is also a laundry room (and toilet ) off the porch. There is a room across the other side of the courtyard with darts and a variety of board games - as well as an extra futon style sofa bed. This room is NOT decorated to the standard of the rest of the house and is not on the heating system and gets a little damp sometimes in the winter. Because we use the house a lot as well there are lots of home comforts which make it a home from home.
Further details outdoors
Up the old stones steps from the courtyard is a lovely garden with a lawn and planting a patio area superb for sitting out on and surveying the wonderful views. The garden is at the roof level of the house and is quite and laid out in distinct areas. Including two lawns and a large patio area with tables and chairs which provides and fantastic place for drinks on the terrace. There is a bbq available for use in the shed. The courtyard on road level parks three cars ( we regularly park two 7 seater cars and a camper van in there) securely and the terrace overlooks this as well as the magnificent vista across the valley. It is because of the steps that we say the property is not easy for those with restricted mobility, but lots of septegenarians and older think the steps to the garden are a small price to pay for the fabulous facililty it provides!

“My Fitbit said it all!”
I slept so well that I screen shot my Fitbit home page to send to my husband who I left back in London. I slept better than I had done in ages. Then off for a day walking. Lovely gentle walk, through beautiful rolling hills. Again, my Fitbit told the tale! Thousands and thousands of steps that passed with no effort due to the lovliness of the scenery. Thoroughly recommend this place to press pause on busy lives.
Owner's reply: Excellent! so glad you had a good break and that the house was the perfect place for you to relax. We look forward to your return!
“Perfect for a weekend away with friends”
8 of us stayed for a lovely long weekend. The cottage is just at the edge of the town centre, which makes it perfect for food shopping and for nosying around shops. We had a lovely day of walking and pub food too. Catering in the cottage is easy and I particularly appreciated the presence of the knife sharpener, in case we needed it (which we didn't). Very convivial and also particularly notable is the good quality laundered bedlinen. Highly recommended!
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your review and recommendation, very glad you enjoyed the kitchen equipment. Pleased you noticed our bed linen too, we are proud of our quality white cotton, laundered linen! Best wishes.
“Fabulous house in beautiful location”
This is a great house for a family or two or a group of friends - cosy but also has plenty of rooms to give you space, with good communal areas. Lovely and welcoming, the house was very clean and tidy and has everything you need. The shops and pubs of Bakewell are only a couple of minutes walk, or you can also walk the other direction into the hills - perfect.
Owner's reply: Thanks so much for taking time to review. We are so glad that the house worked so well for you and look forward to welcoming you back.
“Beautiful winter walking retreat”
Victoria cottage is stylish, clean, and perfectly located for Bakewell town and we went on a couple of really great walks. The showers are lovely and powerful which was great!!
Owner's reply: Thank you for your lovely review. We are so glad you liked the house and had a good time. Strong showers after a long walk are so important!
“Perfectly roomy and comfortable cottage!!”
The perfect combination of modern and homely!! The spacious home is perfect for a group getaway or larger family, we went as a big group of friends and had an amazing stay! The view from the elevated garden was absolutely exquisite with chairs and a covered area perfect to sit under on a warm summer evening or even a drizzly english day. The living room upstairs was super comfy with a large tv and several sofas and was the warmth and comfort we needed after a busy day :) Would 100% recommend to a friend - 10/10!!
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for taking the time to write this lovely review. We are so pleased you had a great time and we very much look forward to welcoming you back.
Such a fab cottage right in the centre of Bakewell. The owner is a joy to deal with too and genuinely cares that you have a nice stay! Perfect for groups of people looking for a fun getaway!
Owner's reply: Thank you so much! Delighted you had a great time.
“Great cottage in the heart of the peak district”
The cottage is close to the centre of Bakewell which is a beautiful town on the river Wye. The cottage has loads of character, was spacious and was great for out walking based holiday. The large lounge and hillside garden were perfect for relaxing especially on the terrace in the evening with a drink enjoying the view over the town. Getting cars in and out of the courtyard onto the main road was tricky but ok with two people. We really enjoyed it and would stay again.
Owner's reply: Thank you so much, I am delighted you had a great time and we look forward to welcoming you back. Best wishes.
“Like a cosy Tardis”
You wouldn't know from the street quite how much room there is in this little haven. We loved the well-stocked kitchen and the sizeable, beamed living room but our favourite spot was the den outside. The decorations were quirky, the stereo excellent, the sofas comfy and a (working) vintage coin-pusher machine was certainly a first in a holiday let. Like the rest of the home it was full of charm and gave you the feeling of staying at a friend's place. The layout would be great for families; tons of communal space but bedrooms far enough apart for privacy. We'll be back.
“Number one choice”
What a fantastic place. The house is beautiful, luxurious and very comfortable. The town is full of interesting amenities and the countryside is gorgeous. A number one spot for a family holiday.
“Great for hen party”
we were a hen party of 13 and stayed at Victoria cottage. It had loads of cups and glasses and other kitchen equipment which made life a lot easier with such a large group> in addition the washing machine was invaluable. Its situated just on the outside of town but within easy walking distance and is an easy place to access some of the lovely walks around such as the Monsal trail. Maggie was extremely helpful on email and reassuring when I heard about the cons that have occurred with similar rental properties on other websites- this one exists and is very nice!
