Riverside Cottages

Riverside Cottages are three stylish, contemporary cottages in the heart of beautiful Bakewell, offering you the luxury and convenience of modern facilities and design, but with the charm and character of true country living.

Bakewell is the only town wholly within the Peak District National Park, and it’s a picture-perfect place, full of history, but with a great range of shops, restaurants, cafés and pubs … not to mention plenty of opportunities for sampling delicious Bakewell puddings!  The stunning scenery of the Peak District is right on your doorstep, with its picturesque villages, grand country house estates, lush dales and wild moorland.


About Riverside Cottages

Riverside Cottages are three terraced properties, each with their own individual character and charm, situated on the banks of the River Wye.  They are located on an old industrial estate that dates back to the 18th Century, where their historical past blends perfectly with their peaceful surroundings today.

Riverside Cottages

Each cottage has a cosy sitting room with a log burner, perfect for enjoying after a day out exploring the Peak District.  A small complimentary basket of logs is provided.  The fully-equipped kitchen and spacious, open-plan kitchen/dining area in each cottage means that cooking up a feast is a pleasure, not a chore.  Free Wi-Fi (fibre) is available throughout.

All cottages have large, comfortable bedrooms that offer flexibility to suit groups of all types.  Each bedroom has a Smart TV and DVD player.  Bed linen and towels are provided. 

Outside, each cottage has its own separate garden to the front and rear, and two allocated car parking spaces per cottage.  Additional parking is available to the side of the cottages.  Pets are welcome in Cottage 1 and 2. 

Riverside Cottages can be booked individually or together, providing the perfect accommodation for family holidays, romantic retreats, getaways with friends, those seeking adventures and those who just want to relax and enjoy this stunning part of the country.

Riverside Cottages are the perfect place for larger groups of family or friends, allowing everyone to be together under one roof but with the luxury of separate living areas for a little ‘you time’.


Riverside Cottages Location

Riverside Cottages are located within easy walking distance of the centre of Bakewell, with its cobbled courtyards and beautiful limestone cottages on quiet lanes.  It has a wide range of shops, from independent boutiques to well-known High Street favourites. There’s no shortage of wonderful places to dine – and you must try a traditional Bakewell pudding while you’re in town! 

Within very easy driving distance you’ll find the stunning country estates of Haddon Hall and Chatsworth House, both offering wonderful days out. 

Only slightly further afield is the spa town of Buxton, with its graceful Georgian architecture, or the ancient market town of Ashbourne.

The Peak District is rightly famed for its endless opportunities to enjoy the Great Outdoors, whether you want to go walking, running, cycling, caving, climbing, riding, or simply admire the views.  The countryside surrounding Bakewell is spectacular in every direction, and you’ll find plenty of quaint villages with country pubs dotted throughout the landscape. 

The Monsal Trail starts in Bakewell; it’s a traffic-free trail that runs for 8.5 miles between Bakewell and Chee Dale, passing through some of the most wonderful scenery.  There are numerous places from which to hire bikes on the route if you haven’t brought your own: try Hassop Station Cycle Hire or Blackwell Mill Cycle Hire


Don’t just take our word for it!

“We loved our stay in this beautiful cottage! Every room is so tastefully and beautifully decorated, with thoughtful touches all around. It’s hard to believe we were able to stay in such a quiet, calm and stunning space, located right next to the stunning Bakewell area – and we were able to bring our dog! Thank you for letting us stay in this beautiful space!”


“We have had the most wonderful stay for my husband’s birthday. Gorgeous accommodation in lovely condition. Lots of quality family time and amazing scenery. Would love to visit again!”


“What a great introduction to the Peak District. We have enjoyed a mix of weather, seen some beautiful countryside and have discovered Bakewell Puddings! Riverside Cottage has given us another set of happy family memories – a perfect home from home. Thank you.”
