An absolute gem. Peaceful, glorious setting, a beautiful garden and views of the River Wye and ancient packhorse bridge from the room. The owners are so friendly and helpful and do everything to make sure your stay a good one! Short stroll into Bakewell for pubs etc. As keen walkers, this was a brilliant base, with umpteen walks from the... More

The cottage is a short distance (about 10 mins walk) from the city centre. The walk along the river towards the cottage offers a lovely view. You can relax along the river banks, while enjoying the sight of grazing livestock nearby. The owners are extremely friendly and attentive. Their breakfast is excellent and we are delighted to try the black... More

Decent sized room with amazing views. Lovely private bathroom. Handy walking distance to Bakewell. Fab breakfasts and great hosts. Great location for touring the area. We cycled Monsal trail from the door. . Good value for money.

The cottage was a very cozy and beautiful place. The room was very comfortable, and the bathroom was adorable and amazingly convenient. The owners were a lovely and nice couple who cared for our every needs. The breakfast they served was absolutely delicious, and they were nice enough to personalize it to our taste. It is definitely a place I... More

We stayed here two days/nights as a break in the middle of our lengthy hike around the Peak District National Park. The price was so reasonable we were not sure what we would get, turns out we should not have worried. Mr & Mrs Dunn were very welcoming and Lumford Cottages is in a wonderful location, on the northern outskirts... More

This house is in the most lovely setting, next to a river by the old pack horse bridge, it's a very short walk into town. The owners are lovely, you get free wifi and breakfast is served in your own room which I love, and it was a great breakfast too. Stunning views and a peaceful nights sleep, and all... More

This is quite an unusual B&B as there is only one double room with private bathroom on the middle floor of this Artisans cottage. The owners are friendly & welcoming & you could come & go as you pleased. It is only a short walk from the centre of Bakewell & you can walk via the river. Your room overlooks... More

We had a very pleasant here. This is not a typical B&B as there's only one room available. The couple who run the place are friendly and not intrusive. The location is convenient - quiet and picturesque and yet a short walk to the city centre. Parking is also available. The room was very clean and well equipped with everything... More

This was our second visit, this time for a full week, and the experience was just as good as last year, with the plus that we knew our way around the area better. It's a superb situation, with the bedroom (there is only one, with a double bed) on the first floor looking out beyond the garden and a broad... More

Good value accommodation in a fantastic, beautiful location. Mr & Mrs Dunn were really friendly and hospitable. It was a little unusual staying at a B & B where you did feel like you were staying in someone's spare room of their house. This may not suit everyone, who want more privacy than than. The room and the bathroom were... More
