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
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.
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 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.
“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.”
With the interest of keeping our guests and the Bakewell community safe we are sadly having to temporarily close our doors here at Riverside Cottages for the next coming weeks. It is not a decision that we have taken lightly and we will review the situation in line with government announcements, keeping you updated via our website and social media.
We have contacted all of our upcoming guests to discuss deferring their holidays to later on in the year, so that they can all look forward to their stay with us once this has passed! 🌻
We wish all of our lovely guests and followers good health and ask that you all stay safe during these unprecedented times 💝
