Luxury house sleeping 10 for families and couples, an ideal holiday venue in the heart of the Peak District

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Fairfield House, Bakewell, Derbyshire, Peak District, sleeps 10 in 5 bedrooms.

Fairfield House is situated in a quiet residential location, close to the River Wye, with far reaching views over the Derbyshire countryside from the garden and master bedroom, one of five freshly decorated bedrooms. An ideal holiday venue for 5 couples or families.

Fairfield is just a short walk into the quintessentially English village of Ashford in the Water. Walk to Bakewell either along the main Buxton/Bakewell road (past the fabulous Thornbridge Brewery), or follow the path through the fields along the River Wye. For those looking for more than a stroll, you are truly spoiled for choice, with lush green limestone country from your doorstep contrasting sharply with the earthy heather moorland of the gritstone (typical of the Dark Peak) just a mile or so away.

Anyone who can ride a bike will love the Monsal Trail, the disused railway line from Bakewell, which gently ventures through tunnels, lush landscape and over the Headstone Viaduct. There are plenty of tearooms and pubs at which to replenish fluids along the way! Cycle hire is available at both ends of the trail, or bring your own bikes and secure them in the bike store in the lockable garden shed.

Most of the main Derbyshire tourist attractions are accessible by public transport from Bakewell. If you tire of picnics on the banks of the river or afternoon tea in one of the lovely tearooms, then on foot, by car or by bus, you have unlimited attractions and places to visit. Chatsworth House with its adventure playground and farmyard is an essential day out for the whole family. Haddon Hall is another stately home well worth a visit.

However you choose to spend your time, you'll love the space and comfort of Fairfield House. The fabulous open-plan kitchen/dining/lounge area is a perfect hub for the whole group - a place to eat, lounge and socialise together with lots of light from the ceiling skylight and double doors to the outside space. The catering facilities are all you could wish for to rustle up sumptuous suppers or a good old fry-up.

The garden is fabulous, with uninterrupted views over hills and fields, its lawn and decking/seating area perfect for a spot of daydreaming.
