About Lambton Cottage

Lambton Cottage is on the edge of one of the most popular towns in the Peak District National Park. The spacious house is surrounded by gorgeous Derbyshire countryside yet is close enough to walk into Bakewell in just a few minutes. It sleeps up to ten guests in five bedrooms, and with two bedrooms having en suites and four that can be either double or twin rooms, it has a versatile layout to suit any family or group of friends.

Being in walking distance to the centre of Bakewell gives you the ability to enjoy this lovely town without having to worry about parking. Bakewell is not as grand as nearby Buxton, but it was good enough for Jane Austen to use it for inspiration for the town of Lambton in “Pride and Prejudice”, with Pemberley being based on nearby Chatsworth House.

Bakewell has an excellent range of amenities including a supermarket, numerous independent shops, an interesting local museum in a house that dates back to 1543, and some great restaurants. You will find several excellent bakeries specialising in the town’s famous delicacy, Bakewell Pudding. We won’t tell you which is the best - one of the pleasures is trying them all to decide for yourself!

You can easily find everything you need in Bakewell, but you’d be doing yourself a disservice if you didn’t go to Buxton at least once during your holiday. Like all the great spa towns, Buxton has some wonderful Georgian buildings including a grand Crescent and Pavilion with Gardens. It is larger than Bakewell with an even wider array of shops, pubs and amenities and if you don’t want to order online and have your groceries delivered, there are several supermarkets to choose from here.

One of the biggest attractions in the Peak District is Chatsworth House. This magnificent stately home is one of the finest in Europe and houses a wealth of treasures. The grounds are as impressive as the house, with a mix of parklands, formal gardens, a maze, lakes and fountains. It is an exceptionally well-managed attraction with something for everyone, including a playground and farmyard for the kids, a seasonal calendar of events, shops, cafes and a restaurant.

As lovely as attractions like Chatsworth are, the landscape is the real draw of the Peak District National Park, and there are plenty of ways you can get out and enjoy it. The Monsal Trail is excellent and suitable for walkers and cyclists of all abilities, while Froggatt, Curbar and Baslow Edges provide more of a challenge for experienced hikers and climbers. There are lots of opportunities for mountain biking, if that’s your preferred mode of transport - just ask at Hassop Station where you can get good advice from local riders and hire a bike if you didn’t bring your own.

The variety of attractions in the Peak District makes it possible to keep everyone happy, and Lambton Cottage is a beautiful place to stay while you’re spending time doing things you love with the people closest to you.

Accommodation Comprises:

Lambton Cottage is decorated in a contemporary English country style and furnished to a very high standard with every consideration given to guests' comfort.


  • The spacious living room is triple aspect to make the most of the fantastic views and provide plenty of natural light, with double glass doors that open onto the garden. Plush sofas and armchairs offer ample seating for everyone, and the stone fireplace with wood burning stove provides a cosy focal point. There is also a flat screen television with DVD player for guests' entertainment.
  • The dining room overlooks the gardens at the rear of the property. It also benefits from a lot of natural light and is a pleasant place for both relaxed breakfasts and formal meals, and with seating for ten there is room for everyone to sit down together.
  • The show-stopper kitchen is a joy in which to cook. The owners have gone to huge lengths to make sure every convenience is included to help cater for large groups, including a Rangemaster double oven and hob with five burners, two double toasters, two kettles and all manner of cooking equipment, crockery and cutlery.
  • A double bedroom leads off the dining room which has a cleverly designed compact shower cubicle (guests can use the WC in the hall). It is furnished with full sized twin beds that can be zipped together to make one king sized bed if that is what you prefer.
  • A separate cloakroom and WC is conveniently tucked away under the stairs.


  • There are four further bedrooms upstairs. Each is furnished with a king-size bed that can be separated to make two full size single beds, and all are large enough to include a travel cot.
  • Bedroom one is dual aspect. It has an en-suite shower room with WC.
  • Bedrooms two, three and four all have shared use of a generously sized family bathroom with freestanding bath and separate shower, hand basin and WC.

Outside: A paved patio is accessible from the living room and there is garden furniture for you to be able to eat and relax outside. The sloping lawned garden has far reaching views across the surrounding countryside and the Bakewell Golf Club Course. A lockable garage provides secure storage for bikes (and golf clubs).

Additional Information: There are WiFi and central heating throughout the property. All utilities, linen and towels are included. Up to two well-behaved dogs are welcome with prior agreement with the owner. Short breaks may be possible out of season depending on availability. No smoking. A welcome basket of logs is provided but guests need to bring their own fire lighters and matches for safety reasons.

Prices: Please contact the owner directly who will provide an accurate price based on your party size and personal requirements. Short breaks are available all year round with three night minimum breaks (starting on a Friday) offered over the weekend and charged at £1250-£1650. Please contact the owner for late availability offers.
