Our stay at these three cottages (Riverside Cottages, New Lumford) in early July stands out, among many many cottage holidays in England over the years.
We took all three cottages for the first few days of our stay, for a family reunion of four siblings who haven’t been in the same country together for more than ten years
We wanted our collective families to spend lots of time together, but also to have our own space in our respective individual family groups. The three adjoining cottages with their connecting gardens, barbequeues and ample garden furniture, made this easy and fun. We had some wonderful meals al fresco, with so many at the table it was hard to fit us all in the camera frame!
The cottages were very comfortable and brilliantly equipped to a very high standard. The experience in terms of comfort and amenities was almost flawless, actually.
Being right on the river and a few minutes walk from Bakewell provided immediate countryside bliss combined with the conveniences and curiosities of a bustling Peak District Town. Access to the Monsal Trail - just a short walk away, is walkers’ heaven.
We will visit again.
