Cooking and Dining

A super-sized kitchen in a French green finish with polished work surfaces and tiled floors is definitely a pleasant place to be. It is well stocked with all the equipment and mod cons you need to self cater for your guests. There is an extra dining table and chairs ideal for leisurely breakfasts or kids teas and a formal dining room which is set up for 10 guests.

You could pop down to Bakewell and purchase an abundance of local produce (there is a regular Farmers Market in the town on the last Saturday of each month and a regular market every Monday throughout the year) and take full advantage of the stunning kitchen preparing delicious holiday meals. Or perhaps use one of our many highly recommended outside catering contacts and enjoy delivered or catered meals.

There is also a utility room and boot room leading off the kitchen.

Living Space

After spending a day exploring the Peaks, you are welcomed by the large comfy sofas and the warming log burner in this classic English country themed lounge.

With plenty of room for the whole family to spread out, you can relax, play board games or put your feet up and admire the view.

The lounge is equipped with a TV with freeview. Glass doors open out onto the patio terrace at the rear of the house.

Gardens and Outdoor Space

Lambton Cottage is surrounded by substantial mature gardens with open fields beyond. A large patio terrace provides a wonderful space for outside dining.

One of the best features of Lambton Cottage is the close proximity (200 metres approximately) to The Monsal Trail which is a popular converted railway line to a cycle path with stunning scenery along the way. You will be amazed with the dramatic views as you ride over towering viaducts, through tunnels and dales. You can make full use of the trail with the provision of secure bike storage in a lockable garage with plenty of space for up to 10 bikes. To the side of the property is a driveway with private parking for strictly three cars on the drive and one in the garage.

Due to its residential location Lambton Cottage it is not suitable for hen and stag groups - we have plenty of other properties we can recommend!


The Peak District District and Surrounding Area

Just a short walk down the hill you arrive at the bridge over the River Wye in the beautiful old market town of Bakewell. Famous for its Bakewell Pudding (with the Original Pudding Shop open every day for you to buy this famous treat), you can enjoy independent shops, an abundance of lovely cafes, restaurants and pubs. There is a fabulous park with a playground and paddling for the children, the town centre also has its own swimming pool.

You are literally a short drive away from the most amazing of Peak District treats for you to enjoy - Chatsworth House (10 minutes), Haddon Hall (10 minutes), historic spa town of Buxton (20 minutes) to name just a few.

From the property you can jump onto The Monsal Trail which can take you all the way off road by foot or bicycle nearly to Buxton, with lovely cafes and pubs to stop off on the way.

Alternatively, pop on your boots and head off on foot in whatever direction takes your fancy with access to the most incredible walks and dramatic landscape the Peak District has to offer. We recommend taking off from the doorstep up though the woods, over the tops to admire the stunning view of Chatsworth House and Estate, and treat yourself to a welcoming brew at the end of the walk in the courtyard at Chatsworth Stables tea room.

The property is in excellent condition throughout, both clean and very well furnished. It is a substantially detached property with a large garden area and with generous parking space for three vehicles. The property is spacious, with a very well furnished kitchen, bathroom and other toilet and shower facilities. The beds were large and comfortable with good bedding and towels all provided. The outlook is splendid across fields and varied country landscape. It is within easy walking distance of the prosperous town of Bakewell, which offers lots of historical interest, shops, pubs, takeaways etc. It is also close to Chatsworth and plenty of other picturesque locations in the Peak District.

Clifford, Oct 2016

We loved Lambton Cottage

Lechler, Jun 2016

Just spent a sunny weekend at Lambton Cottage. The location is amazing - its a 5 minute walk to the town centre with its array of restaurants and shops. The countryside views from the cottage are breathtaking and we spent lazy evenings on the terrace drinking cold chablis and eating cold meats and cheeses bought locally from the wonderful Chatsworth Farm Shop and Bakewell Deli The kitchen is very well equipped and everything in the cottage is first class. We are already planning our return later in the year .

Brown, Jun 2016

'A great experience, The cottage is lovely and the location is fab. My Dad really enjoyed spending his 88th birthday at Lambton Cottage - we are already thinking of our next family gathering!'

Smith, May 2016

We have just returned from the beautiful Lambton Cottage which we rented for three nights for a family get together. 9 people teenagers upwards. The cottage is gorgeous, has everything we required and more. Great location walking distance to Bakewell and the Monsal trail as well as having lots of walks accessible from the cottage. The garden and surrounding countryside and views were stunning. Simply sublime.

Scott, May 2016

Thank you again for a fab break. We loved the cottage.

Scott, May 2016

Lambton Cottage is a great location for cycling as the Monsal Trail is few minutes cycle up the road. My family brought our bikes with us and we spent the holiday cycling every day. We stored our bikes in the secure garage which had plenty of room. The cottage is very well appointed and spotlessly clean. On arrival we found tea, coffee, fresh milk and biscuits which was very much appreciated after our car journey. The gardens are lovely and we enjoyed a couple of barbeques on the sunny terrace - very peaceful location with great views.

Coxhead, May 2016

We had a lovely time in the Peak District and are already planning our next visit! The cottage was lovely,absolutely beautiful and very well equipped!

Carter, Apr 2016

Just returned from a relaxing weekend at Lambton Cottage - we loved the cottage and can't believe that you are so close to Bakewell town centre yet surrounded by wonderful countryside. Waking up to the sound of birds singing every morning and looking down at the beautiful gardens was wonderful. The cottage interior was lovely - the beautifully appointed bathroom was most welcome after our long walks and we all loved bathing in the lovely deep bath and the bed linen was so crisp and clean. The kitchen was very well equipped and we enjoyed a home made sunday roast after a long walk on the Monsal Trail which is only a 5 minute walk from the cottage. We had a wonderful weekend away and we will definitely return to Lambton Cottage again.

Our Top 5 Places to Visit Nearby

1. Spend a day exploring the historic market town of Bakewell

Bakewell is the largest town within the Peak District National Park and is a hub of activity. Market day is on a Monday and as well as a large range of stalls there is also an agricultural market which is definitely worth a look around as it offers a great insight todays farming community. The town also hosts a craft and gift fair every weekend in Brigade town hall. The Bakewell Old House Museum occupies one of the oldest buildings in Bakewell and dates back to 1543, it provides a fascinating glimpse into the towns past and is very interesting and informative with lots to appeal to all ages. Obviously no trip to Bakewell would be complete without sampling an original Bakewell pudding. The Old Original Bakewell Pudding Shop claims to have the old the original recipe and still makes the puddings by hand from the secret recipe.

2. Cycle or Walk the Monsal Trail

With the Monsal Trial literally on your door step (access to the trail is approx 200 metres up the road from the cottage) it would be rude not to take the opportunity to cycle/walk along this old Midland Railway line which runs from Bakewell right up to Blackwell Mill, in Chee Dale. The trail offers 8.5 miles of traffic free and mud free cycling/walking and with the recently reopened tunnels offers one of the most spectacular leisure routes in Britain for cycling, walking and horse riding. The nearest cycle hire is at Hassop station which is great place to stop for a bite to eat or for a coffee and nice piece of home made cake!
