“Excellent cottage in fabulous location”
Reviewed April 5, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage. The standard of accomodation was excellent, facilities were first class and would definitely stay again. Excellent communication with owner. Location was brilliant.

Had a lovely three day break here - the cottage was very cosy, especially with the fire! Bakewell is only a short distance away and has great cafes and pubs. Wifi at this cottage was certainly an added bonus. Will definitely be returning.

“Perfect cottage in a perfect location!”

My family and I have just had a really lovely week staying at the Old Bakery. The cottage is located in Ashford in the Water which is a very pictoresque place with really good amenities. There are 2 good pubs, a tea room and a village shop. The cottage itself is decorated & furnished to a high standard and we found it to be very clean on arrival. It is very well equipped and we certainly made use of the very good kitchen facilities to self cater for the most part. Having the wifi was an added bonus as well. We alsofound all the correspondence from the owner to be extremely helpful prior to
our stay. We did a couple of really good walks from the cottage itself and we noticed that many people come to Ashford to start off their walks, so if you like walking , then this is a great place for you to stay. As a runner I also found some great routes to run in the area, so again , runners this cottage would really suit you. My children aged 10 and 7 didn't want to leave as they fell in love with the cottage and the Peak District itself! Therefore, I know we will be back in the near future! A really enjoyable holiday.

“Excellent cottage in lovely village”

This is a beautifully renovated cottage. It has all the facilities you need for a great stay. The beds are comfortable with linens and towels of good quality. The bathroom is new with a good shower over a large bath. The village is very attractive with two pubs serving food. We preferred the smaller Bull's Head, which had a more limited menu, but perhaps better quality food and a quieter ambiance. Tip: If you need to charge a razor or toothbrush bring a two pin adaptor as there is not shaver point.

we had a fantastic break in such a beautiful village, and could not have fallen more in love with such a gorgeous, comfy cottage. So homely, beautifully decorated and very pristine. We will be back I am certain!

I stayed with a friend for a weekend. We were looking for a relaxing place to stay which was cost and if I am honest ... a bit of treat. Well, The Old Bakery ticked all the boxes. Refurbished to a very high standard, spotlessly clean and with lots of lovely extra finishing touches. The house layout works really well with enormous bathroom upstairs and plenty of space downstairs. Parking outside was easy, and with beautiful walks right from our door and tea rooms, pubs and restaurants all within strolling distance, it made for the perfect lazy weekend break we were looking for. Thoroughly recommended.
