Bright and Airy Living Accommodation

2 Lumford House 1

As you walk up the garden path of 2 Lumford House, the first thing that awaits you is a glazed entrance porch with two benches, ideal for storing those all-important walking boots, or opening the doors in the morning and sitting with a cup of coffee, listening to the sound of the river and all the birdsong that it attracts.

The lounge is stunningly bright, spacious, and airy, with two windows overlooking the garden. There are two large sofas, with beautiful soft furnishings in earthy tones, giving 2 Lumford House a lovely home-from-home feel. There is also a smart TV and a welcoming wood-burning stove, making this a wonderful place to relax on a rainy day, or after a day exploring everything that this fabulous area has to offer.

A washer/dryer can be found in the separate utility room with WC and hand basin.

Central Location

Peaceful, tranquil, idyllic, relaxing – the list could go on! Who wouldn’t want to spend their days and evenings just relaxing by the river? However, its not just the immediate location that is so special about 2 Lumford House. Just a 5-10 minute stroll and you are in the wonderful market town of Bakewell, where you’ll find an abundance of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and bars.  

Surrounded by breathtaking countryside, there is also a huge selection of footpaths right from the door. Perhaps have a leisurely stroll to the chocolate box village of Ashford in the Water, or head for the Monsal Trail with your bikes. Even the fabulous stately homes of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall can both be reached on foot. Central to so many favourite destinations in the Peak District, such as the historic village of Eyam, or the pretty village of Monyash, you really will be spoilt for choice whether to browse the shops, go out for a walk, or just sit and chill by the river!
