Wonderfully positioned on the banks of the River Wye, bask and unwind in this tranquil holiday location. Set tails wagging from the moment you arrive with the anticipation of amazing countryside and riverside walks close by. Once you’ve explored the pretty village of Bakewell and appreciated some of the tasty local food, return to enjoy some time with your loved ones, a glass of wine and a cosy, contemporary setting.

 

Here, you are situated right in the heart of Bakewell and with this spectacular old mill all laid out on one level, you can access any room with ease. The three king-size bedrooms serve visitors with comfort and space for sound sleep. (The beds are all zip and link; any can be made up as twins but this must be requested at the time of booking.) An en-suite is available in one of the bedrooms, and a lovely family bathroom has everything you’ll need to freshen up. Use the cloakroom area to rub down your canine companion and kick off your shoes. Head on through to the alluring lounge/kitchen/diner space which boasts incredible views from the original full-length mill windows. The comfort of the lounge cannot be underestimated and you can sit undisturbed with your four-legged friend by your side when the nights draw in. You’ll find all you need in the contemporary kitchen area for making some tasty meals and doggy treats. Externally, a front patio area overlooking the old mill wheel serves up the prime spot to take things down a notch and sip a glass of something cool.

 

In a sought-after location, packed with a host of local attractions and amenities ready to be explored within walking distance, the choices are plentiful. You can take the pups out for a day of adventuring the Monsal Trail, thanks to being situated at the foot of this popular walking trail - it’s just 4 miles from your stay. Once you’ve meandered through some of the Peak District's most outstanding landscapes, head back to Bakewell for a delicious snack and a bowl of water for Fido at one of the local cafes.
