Overall a lovely cottage

Reviewed by Anthony, 23rd December 2017

Cottage is located on steep hill. Even permit parking does not guarantee nearby space. Bathroom is on ground floor. Cottage very cosy and warm. Bedrooms very nice with comfortable beds. Cottage close to town centre for shops and pubs etc.

It's a lovely cottage - exactly what we expected. The location was excellent and the shops of Bakewell are just a few minutes away. The beds were very comfortable. We had a really lovely time.

Lovely cosy cottage in a super location for town. Beds are so comfy. Welcome tray was a lovely touch on arrival. Well equipped kitchen. Cottage set on a hill so helps to walk off the Bakewell Tarts! Always found a parking space somewhere at the top of the hill. Fabulous stay in a lovely cottage in pretty Bakewell, thanks!

A great cosy characterful cottage in a great location.

Reviewed by Nicholas, 29th July 2017

A very pretty cottage and Bakewell is a great base for exploring the Derbyshire Dales. The cottage is just a minute or two from the centre but is on a quiet and very beautiful hill opposite the church. The back bedroom is lovely and peaceful but the front bedroom is opposite the church and if you're sensitive to the clock bells going every fifteen Read moreminutes then take some earplugs. The church is, however, part of the charm and very beautiful. Hide

A nice, comfortable cottage close to the centre of the town, which really helped. Great views from both the (small) rear terrace and the rear bedroom. Kitchen diner is compact but certainly large enough and is well equipped. A delight to stay in.

All spot on in a good location a 2 minute walk from the centre of Bakewell opposite the church. Lovely cottage with everything on hand and tastefully done. Plenty of walks straight out the back door without any need for a car and plenty of shops and pubs/restaurant in walking distance.

lovely cottage and bedrooms especially nice. Couldn't get a parking space outside the property so would be difficult for a person with mobility issues.

Reviewed by Emily, 13th May 2017

The Gingerbread Cottage was lovely. Just the right size for 3 of us with a delightful terrace garden with views to die for. The situation of the cottage was amazing - better than we were expecting - so close to the center of town! We all really enjoyed our stay!
