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.

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! There is also a lovely little gift shop and book shop and a children’s play area.

This award winning brewery is just down the road from the property and for any real ale lover taking a tour of this state-of-the art brewery is not to be missed. Tours take place very Wednesday and Friday at 3pm, booking is advisable.
