Kerry Cottage is a really pretty cottage, refurbished to a superb standard and set in a quieter part of Bakewell, the lovely old market town in the midst of the Peak District National Park. As soon as you walk through the door you will be saying 'just come and look at this' as you see the luxurious lounge, ultra-modern kitchen and bathroom and the beautiful bedrooms.
Bakewell, famed for its delicious puddings, is one of the absolute gems of Derbyshire. Enjoy wandering round all the interesting shops, sharing your lunch with the ducks on the river Wye and then having a difficult time picking one of the smashing pubs or restaurants for your evening meal. Bet you go back to Piedaniel's which is the super restaurant down in the town !
On other days grab a packed lunch from the super deli and then just head for the hills. All the myriad of attractions mentioned in this brochure are an easy drive from the cottage so what about trying Castleton's spooky caverns, Chatsworth's incredible adventure playground, the National Tramway Museum's tuppenny rides back into history or just a sunset walk along Calver Edge.

"Kerry Cottage was immaculately clean, provided with all essentials, and with good labelling on all appliances. It had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. It is situated about half a mile from the centre of Bakewell, has beautiful views over the town and is an easy walk to the town centre down a sheepish path, (but better than driving as Bakewell can get quite busy with traffic). It is in an excellent location for the many walks in the local area."

"The four of us had a super week, blessed by good weather, in the lovely market town of Bakewell. 'Kerry Cottage' is well appointed with good-sized rooms. It is situated about half a mile out of the town centre - it is a stiff walk back up a stiff hill - and there are lovely views across the surrounding countryside from the front bedroom. There is plenty to see and do in and around Bakewell and the Monday market is one of the best we know. Thank you for a lovely stay."
