About 1 Riverside Cottage

1 Riverside Cottage is the type of Peak District cottage you see in a lifestyle magazine. Exceptionally comfortable and finished to a high standard, this stylish cottage sits in a quiet residential location beside the River Wye, just a few moments’ walk from the centre of Bakewell. Accommodating up to six guests, the cottage is perfect for families but equally as suited to couples who appreciate a little extra space around them. Depending on availability, it is possible to hire all three cottages together to make it a fantastic choice for extended families and friends who want to holiday together but still enjoy their own space and privacy.

Wander along the river, and before you know it, you will be in the heart of Bakewell, possibly the most charming of all the towns and villages in the Peak District. Golden stone buildings house independent restaurants and retailers to give hours of browsing pleasure. Bakewell’s weekly market has been held since 1330 and is the only one of its kind in the Peak District. It runs from around 8am until 3.30pm every Monday, with more than 160 vendors selling local produce, crafts and a wide variety of goods. Apart from sampling the famous Bakewell pudding, a holiday in Bakewell is incomplete without seeing both magnificent Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall. You can walk along the Monsal Trail and quench your thirst with a visit to the Thornbridge Brewery which runs regular brewery tours with tastings.

A few miles along the River Wye from Bakewell, the village Ashford in the Water is a beautiful destination for a walk or cycle. It has two excellent pubs and is en route to Buxton. Where Bakewell is charmingly pretty, Buxton is bold Georgian glamour. The buildings in the Crescent were built in 1780, while parts of the Old Hall Hotel are as old as 1573 and were used to hold Mary Queen of Scots prisoner. Buxton is a spa town, and the beautiful Georgian and Victorian buildings reflect the wealth of the people who visited there centuries ago.

The Peak District National Park is a holiday destination for all seasons. The parks and woodlands are as beautiful in spring and summer as they are covered in autumn colours or a glittery winter frost. Whether your preference is for walking, cycling, strolling around parks and gardens, eating, shopping or marvelling at the splendour of grand country houses, it offers delights for everyone.
