This detached stone-built cottage is only a 10 minute walk from Bakewell town centre, and benefits from both off road parking and an enclosed south facing garden. Fully renovated throughout, Heather House offers far reaching views across Bakewell, a popular and historic market town in the heart of the Peak District National Park. Home to a multitude of independent shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants, Bakewell is rarely quiet and hosts weekly, monthly and annual events which include farmer’s markets, the annual Bakewell Show, Well Dressings and Carnival Week.

The property is convenient for exploring the local area; Buxton, Chesterfield, Matlock and Matlock Bath can all be reached in around 30 minutes as can the beautiful honeypot village of Castleton. Sheffield, Ashbourne, Leek and even Alton Towers are around a 45 minute drive, and for those wanting to give their car a rest, the magnificent Chatsworth Estate can be reached by foot across country. Bakewell’s location on the River Wye provides ample opportunity for waterside strolls and feeding the ducks, and the traffic free Monsal Trail which provides level walking and cycling with spectacular scenery for all abilities. It can be accessed at the former Bakewell station which is a 5-10 minute uphill walk from the property.

About the local area

The River Wye follows the Wye Valley, rising above Buxton flowing eastward through Bakewell before finally joining the Derwent at Rowsley. This is perhaps Derbyshire's prettiest rivers with its limestone uplands and superb dales.

At Monsal Dale the valley widens, the steep sided Monsal Head provides spectacular views over the valley before the river reaches Ashford-in-the-Water, passing beneath what was a medieval packhorse bridge and then again at Bakewell where there is a 13th century bridge with five gothic arches before reaching Haddon Hall.

The old market town of Buxton nestles in the Derbyshire hills and at a height of 1,000 feet above sea level it is one of England's highest towns. Its fame as a health spa dates back to Roman times.

Bakewell has an equally ancient past being mentioned in the Doomsday Book and probably also occupied by the Romans. This beautiful, small market town is situated on the River Wye and has many pleasant walks from the bridge to the town centre where there are many shops, pubs and restaurants and one of the oldest markets in the area, dating back to 1300. The renowned Bakewell Show takes place on the first Wednesday and Thursday of August, attracting both the farming community and visitors from all over the region and beyond.

Apart from the many charming Peak District villages that can be found throughout the Wye Valley other nearby places of interest includes Chatsworth House, home of the Dukes of Devonshire and the grandest stately house in the region and Haddon Hall, a medieval manor house and home to the Dukes of Rutland situated on the River Wye.
