A first family Christmas for 12 years. We travelled from South Lakes, our daughter and family from Redbourn and sonTom and his wife flew in from Dallas.
The cottage was perfect. An extremely well well equipped kitchen five good bedrooms with fresh white bed linen. Towels for everyone clean and soft. We have had the very best time. Excellent recommendations for eating out which we did twice but were more than happy to self cater. Lots of room for everyone to,have their own space or gather together.
Maggie could not have been more helpful before our visit and whilst there. Immediate response to any queries.
Cannot recommend highly enough. We are already thinking of Xmas 2019 when it will be our turn again to organise a Christmas location convenient for all our travelling family.
Even before reaching the cottage the communication with Maggie was excellent, letting me know everything I might need to know and answering every question quickly and was really friendly.
The cottage was perfect, the 12 of us had loads of room and nobody was stepping on anybody else's toes to get around. Everything was in great condition and good quality so it really felt like a home for the weekend. Comfy beds for everyone and the living room was an amazing space for everyone to sit around and relax, even with all 12 of us!
There was lots of information for getting the most out of the house and for the local area - the house is a less than 5 minute walk into the centre of Bakewell so amazingly well located fro getting around! We had cars with us but didn't need them the whole weekend (a bus to Chatsworth and its Christmas market and walks around Bakewell).
Everyone said what an amazing time they had and how much they loved the cottage - we'd definitely go back!
The cottage was great, just what we needed. Fantastic location and very helpful owner. Would love to return in the future.
Great weekend away with friends (eight adults and four children).
Lovely, spacious, and clean cottage, with really comfy beds, and a large nicely designed lounge for us all to chill in the evening.
Less than a five minute walk in to Bakewell town centre.
Maggie was quick in responding to any questions we had. Really helpful and accommodating in allowing some of our friends have an early check-in.
Would definitely stay again!
Within easy walking distance of Bakewell's many amenities, Victoria cottage is spacious, comfortable and full of character. Plenty of space for 8 of us, it is well-equipped and warm. Was a little concerned about car access and parking but with care it's not a problem. Maggie, the owner, responds to any queries very quickly, all in all, a delight!
