2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Ashford-in-the-Water, Bakewell, Peak District National Park, England
This delightful Grade II listed cottage (part of an old Stocking Mill) nestling in the picturesque Peak District benefits from being only a few steps away from the village store, tearoom & some cracking pubs! Cycle on the Monsal Trail or walk in the stunning grounds at Chatsworth House, both are easily accessible and glorious views await. A visit to the nearby market town of Bakewell to sample the infamous Bakewell Pudding, is also a must! Our aim has been to make The Bobbin, an extremely comfortable 'home from home' - enjoy!

The cottage is split over three floors and comprises:
Ground Floor: Kitchen, Sitting room with dining area
2nd floor: Master bedroom with double bed
3rd floor: Twin room with two single beds and family bathroom.

We provide:

A hairdryer for each bedroom

Interaction with guests
We like to meet our guests to hand over keys and run through a few essentials. On the rare occasions, we are away or Guests are arriving after 9pm, there is a Key Safe. We have a 'hands-off approach' but live in a nearby village, 10/15 minutes away, and will, with the exception of our own holidays, be available should our guests need to contact us. In our absence, we usually have a Housekeeper who will fulfill this role.

Well presented, lovely cottage in a beautiful location. The stairs to the bedrooms and bathroom are very steep with restricted head room so not suitable for anyone with mobility issues or tall people, although our 6' 4" son managed to duck well! Other than that...More

Excellent central location, good for walking and cycling, close to the Monsal trail. Also close to some historic and interesting houses. Cosy, clean, and well equipped and just a short walk to a couple of pubs and the local shop.

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is in the heart of the village and there are two great pubs, both serving very good food, a well stocked village store with a Deli, a pretty tearoom and the Church and river within less than two minutes walk.

The Monsal Trail is also on the doorstep which is fantastic for walking and a lovely café, book and gift store at Hassop Station - cycle hire is also available here.

Chatsworth House, Farmyard & Adventure Playground, Haddon Hall and Tissington Hall are well worth visiting. Surrounding towns include Bakewell, Matlock and Buxton.
