This attractive bungalow with a conservatory and pretty enclosed garden overlooks the cricket ground of the small picturesque village of Great Longstone, in the heart of the Peak District.
Great Longstone is just 3 miles from the bustling town of Bakewell, with it’s weekly Monday Market; 1 mile from the lovely village of Ashford in the Water and 10 minutes away from Chatsworth Estate. There are two pubs in the village within 2 minutes’ walk providing good food and a warm welcome. The village also has a small convenient shop and a dairy where you can get milk and eggs.
The cottage is an ideal base for cyclists and walkers being only 50 metres from the popular Monsal Trail. The trail runs along the former converted Midland Railway line between Bakewell to near Buxton making enjoyable walking and cycling options on the former railway line which enjoys lovely cafes and country pubs en route. Cycle hire is available from the Station at Hassop 1 mile away. As well as the trail, the village has numerous footpaths with walks through beautiful countryside and pretty villages that can be started from the doorstep.

As keen walkers ourselves we have provided, for our guests, maps and route descriptions of some of our favourite walks and cycle routes.
The area is also very popular for runners, climbers, cavers and mountain bikers as well as those wanting to visit the many traditional peak district villages and country houses.
Dogs are welcome in most pubs in the area, we provide details of these in our welcome pack.

We are happy to accommodate up to 2 dogs (we charge £12 extra per dog).

The cottage can sleep 4 and comprises:
• Two Bedrooms (1 King Size bed, 2 Singles)
• Bathroom with shower (please note there is no bath)
• A fully equipped kitchen (with electric ovens and grill, gas hob, washing machine and microwave, there is no dishwasher)
• Lounge and dining area (TV, DVD, Wifi, Bluetooth speakers)
• Conservatory
• Small Garage/off road parking

A Lovely base for our break

By Not Supplied on 21-Sep-2019

The conservatory is a bonus. The house was comfortable and as we are no longer able to walk very far it was a good base to visit our memories of our past walks in the Peaks. Close to Longstone edge with its good parking for the views. We had a thoroughly lazy and enjoyable time and would recommend this bungalow.

Everything about this property is lovely! Spacious with a well equipped kitchen and everything you need for a trip to the peaks. The Monsal Trail is a 5 minute walk away, and there are three pubs in easy walking distance. Loved it and will be back!

Lovely bungalow in peak district

By Yvonne H on 22-Jun-2019

We've just had a really lovely stay in this terrific bungalow in the peak district. It was clean, comfortable and provided everything necessary for a great holiday. Jane and Sara were fantastic hosts and available to answer any queries. Really hope to be able to have a return visit.

Peaceful, cosy and comfortable cottage close to various attractions, ideal for families

By Alison O on 21-Jun-2019

We stayed here over May half term holidays and it was a lovely peaceful retreat at the end of the day. Our girls (aged 8 and 4) particularly loved the garden which overlooks the park/cricket pitch where you can relax with a good book, and there are plenty of herbs growing for cooking, and the conservatory. Everything was provided for and communication was excellent with the owner Jane. Clean, comfortable beds and a well-working shower. There's an excellent pub, The White Lion within walking distance and a village store, and a good Co-op in Bakewell 20 min drive away.

There is plenty to do for families in the area. We visited Matlock (check out the aquarium and holographic museum), Heights of Abraham which features cable cars and caves. Alton Towers/CBeebies Land, Crich Tramway Village had plenty to do from arts and crafts to a lovely woodland walk and sculpture park, Gulliver's Kingdom was a great day out too (prepare for steep parking) and we also visited Speedwell Cavern and Bakewell which is good for shopping.

Would highly recommend and our girls loved it.

Lovely bungalow, close to Bakewell.

By Alison B on 06-May-2019

Peaklands had everything we needed and more. We had a fantastic weekend and the weather was amazing for April. Jane was a great host and provided us with some local cycle routes before we even arrived. The garden was a lovely sun trap and we enjoyed sitting out there after a long cycle ride. We'd highly recommend Peaklands and will definitely be back!

Great base for walkers.

By Lisa B on 13-Jan-2019

Very comfortable and cosy bungalow. Well equiped kitchen, we managed to cook our Christmas dinner with ease! We would have loved to have made use of the conservatory and garden, had we stayed in the summer. So we may come back as the walking in this area is great with plenty of routes available right from the doorstep. We didn't need the car all week! There are two good pubs in the village which serve food too. We had everything we needed and did everything we wanted to. If you're looking for a base for a walking holiday in the Peak District this property is perfect.

Sorry about the late review.

This is an absolutely gorgeous house. We immediately felt at peace and it is easy to tell that this is a very much loved home.

Hope to return in a different season to enjoy the surrounding countryside.

Delightful bungalow in a lovely quiet location ideal for exploring the beautiful surrounding area.

By Shirley D on 19-Aug-2018

This bungalow has everything you need for your stay. Plenty of room a pleasant garden which my dog enjoyed. The location is perfect for exploring this stunning area and the Mondale Trail is close by for those longer walks in the morning or evening with Walter (the dog).

A welcome bottle of bubbly and milk was there on arrival which was a lovely touch. Plenty of storage for clothes wellies (if needed luckily for me not required this time!!) comfortable beds and sofa after a long day of exploring. Plenty of cooking pans Pyrex bowls but you might miss your dishwasher but a small price to pay as you have everything else. Only a small freezer section in the fridge but we only stayed a week and so not a problem. Do try the local farm for your milk eggs and fabulous yogurt. Bakewell market on Monday is busy but find the bread man his artisan bread is amazing.

This bungalow is in a perfect location for exploring this stunning area you go out to the busy areas of Lady Bower Dam and Chatsworth and return to the peace of Great Longstone. Make a visit to Thornbridge Gardens you can walk there from the bungalow be careful to check out the days it opens it’s only a couple of days a week. Dogs very welcome if you are lucky enough to talk to the Head Gardener Chris your in for a treat a lovely man who shares his incredible knowledge willingly Enjoy your stay we did and will return there is still so much to see.

Comfortable accommodation

By Carolyn G on 09-Aug-2018

The location of this property is ideal For both cycling and walking directly from the house

The Monsal Trail It’s a five minute cycle ride from the house with bacon or 15 minutes away and Buxton in just under one hour

The walk from the house to great Longstone edge is worth the effort as the views are quite stunning on a clear evening

A delightful bungalow: bright and airy, homely, very clean and well equipped.

By Isobel H on 15-Jul-2018

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Peaklands. The views from the property are wonderful and we loved sitting in the beautiful garden; great to have such a large, sunny conservatory too. It feels like a real home with many interesting and attractive features.

There are many delightful walks nearby and we particularly like the nearby Monsal Trail for a level walk with some shade, and a good cafe and bookshop on the way to Bakewell.

The availability of shorter bookings is a big advantage.

Lovely quiet bungalow.

By Sue C on 19-Jun-2018

We have just been incredibly lucky to have a week's holiday at this lovely quiet bungalow. Very dog friendly, with a few little touches like dog bowls available. Lovely bottle fizzy wine, and a bottle of milk left in the fridge for us too ! The double bed in one room is the most comfortable we have known, and the other bedroom has 2 good sized single beds. The shower is better than our own at home. And is in the only bathroom, which is very easily accessed from both bedrooms. We did not use the eye level ovens, but the toaster worked beautifully. I did a wash most days, and had the weather not been SO good for us, we would have easily dried our clothes on the clothes airer in the conservatory. My husband really enjoyed his quiet reading time in the comfy chairs in the conservatory. The TV reception was really good, and the very important wifi reception was really good, and the signal was constantly strong, which was important to our son. Both the local pubs are to be highly recommended, and are very dog friendly. We could not fault this cottage, or Great Longstones, and we totally and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday week. We also found 'The Monsal Trail' easily accessed, and our dog loved her lead walks on that. We had a great time in The Peak District, and did not want to leave.

Clean, well furnished, cosy and in a great area

By Vivienne Mann on 11-May-2018

We enjoyed our mid week stay very much. The bungalow was very clean and tidy, everything you needed was there and it was dog friendly too. Jane kindly helped us out over a change in arrival date and all in all we thought it was a perfect holiday let. I am sure we will return.

Second time staying. Very well equipped cottage in a great location close to everywhere in the Peak District with nice pubs within walking distance.

By Chris Y on 28-Oct-2017

Peaklands welcomed us and made us feel at home from the off. Very comfortable and well-equipped, with lots of attention to detail, and prompt response from a very nice landlady round the corner when needed. Great Longstone seems a happy place in a magnificent position, with two really good pubs and a remarkably well stocked shop. we'd like to come back in the cricket season so we can watch the game over the fence.

Fantastic accommodation and area to stay

By Ronald B on 04-Oct-2017

Everything you could ask for in a holiday.

The dogs loved the garden and surrounding country side and with 2 pubs with good and and ale just a stroll away they thought they had gone to heaven so much they did not appreciate coming home.

The owners saw to our every need when we needed it.

The peak district is delightful with loads of walks filled with interesting other places to visit, you never get bored.

The cottage itself was all we thought it would be, clean, beds very comfortable, bathroom great, garden a delight and the conservatory a pleasure to sit out in for us all with a view over the cricket ground you would die for

Overall a holiday we will remember for a long time, thank you Jane and Sara for letting us use your cottage.

Lovely comfortable bungalow

By Carol R on 25-Aug-2017

This was our second visit to Peaklands. We rebooked as it is very homely and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Off road parking is also a bonus. The owners have put alot of thought into the rental, and live close by should you need any assistance. Great Longstone is on the Monsal Trail if you enjoy walking, and the village is well situated to visit the places of interest in the National Park. Come rain or shine you should be satisfied if you stay here

Lovely cottage in perfect location

By Quentin R on 15-Aug-2017

Very well equipped, and just the right size for the four of us. Lots of lovely decorations, and we made use of the conservatory every day. Very pleasant garden which we would have used more if the weather had been better. Well placed for Bakewell (5 minutes drive) and for Monsal Head (20 minutes walk). Local shop stocked exactly the sort of things we needed! Sunday roast at the White Lion pub was very good too. Very pleasant stay all round - thank you!

Lovely bungalow in a fantastic location

By Michelle 1 on 22-Jul-2017

Four adults enjoyed 4 days at Peaklands in Great Longstone, a quiet, pretty and friendly village. We were very comfortable in the well appointed bungalow, and delighted to have a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge on arrival together with a pint of milk and also there were teabags, coffee, sugar etc. very welcoming! There is a small but well stocked shop 5 minutes walk away. The bungalow has a private well tended garden and we enjoyed relaxing there in the sunshine and cooking a barbecue one evening. Two excellent pubs in the village and we had superb meals at The Crispin. Easy access to the Monsal trail and a central location for exploring the beautiful Peak District and its numerous attractions.

Lovely Property

By Sandra T on 16-Jul-2017

Just spent a week at this cottage which was perfect for our holiday. The cottage has everything anyone would need including a lovely garden. Very clean and we felt right at home straight away. It is set in a very picturesque village with a couple of really good pubs for eating out. I would highly recommend it.

"Peaklands" is the best holiday cottage we have stayed at in the Peak district.It was extremely clean, comfortable and had everything we needed to make our stay perfect.Milk and wine in the fridge was much appreciated and the information folder was very helpful.

The conservatory and garden were ideal for our dog and the village is lovely and peaceful with two good dog friendly pubs,both doing good food.

We will definitely return and have no hesitation in recommending this wonderful property.

Lovely homely cottage in great location

By Stephanie W on 23-Jun-2017

Attractive welcoming cottage with a great sense of homeliness about it. Location is superb or walking or cycling straight from the cottage, and is ideally situated for exploring all the peaks has to offer by car. This was our second stay at Peaklands and I am sure it won't be the last. The friendliness of everyone we met was a lovely added bonus yet again.

A lucky find for May half term

By Francis P on 02-Jun-2017

Just had a great week at Peaklands. There are lots of deserved positive reviews about this holiday home and I think we were lucky to get half term week. Here are the things we really liked:

Location - Lovely village, centrally located for both Edale and Dovedale, plus many other places, and under 10 mins to Bakewell. Monsal trail on the doorstep. Bring bikes if you enjoy cycling as in addition to the Monsal trail there are more lovely family bike rides though the dales from Parsley Hay. This bungalow even has it's own attached secure garage for your bikes.

Everything just works - great shower, central heating, all Bosch appliances (very clean), gas hob, well equipped kitchen, comfy beds, plenty of space, BBQ...

Conservatory - lovely to sit in in the evening if it's not warm enough to sit in the attractive back garden

Well maintained recreation ground behind the property - the kids could go off in the evenings to play footy, basketball etc

Helpful owners live just round the corner - we didn't need them as they seem to have thought of everything, but appreciated the offers of assistance and it's reassuring to know they are there.

Thanks for a great stay (and the lovely bottle of fizz to start the holiday in style!)

Very comfortable,snug cottage in a beautiful, friendly village.

By Jackie C on 12-Mar-2017

We had a lovely break for a few days. A very welcome treat awaited us and a warm cottage with comfortable beds and a super shower. We could walk easily into the village with a village shop, farm shop and two pubs. Plenty of pretty walks from the cottage - we could give the car a rest! Now feeling rested and refreshed. Hope to revisit soon.

By Michelle H on 07-Mar-2017

We had a wonderful stay at Peaklands bungalow. It is well equipped and very comfortable. There is a play park within a few 100 meters of the property which is great for little ones. The pub restaurant around the corner is also worth a visit.

Overall, I would highly recommend this place :)

A thoroughly enjoyable weekend in this beautiful, well equipped bungalow set in an enchanting village. Everything was very clean, the water piping hot and the heating very efficient. There was lots of storage space for coats, shoes etc. We couldn't have wished for better and look forward to visiting the area again in 2017. The owner of this holiday let had thought of everything and we appreciated the home comforts which we found very much to our taste. People in the village were friendly and took obvious pride in their homes making our stay all the more pleasurable as the hard frost of our morning departure turned everything into a 'Christmas card' scene. It must be a wonderful place to live. We didn't want to leave. We would highly recommend this accommodation and location. The local pub, bus service into Bakewell and easy access to all local places of interest enhanced the experience. If you want a stress free holiday in wonderful surroundings but within easy travelling distance of local towns, this is the place to visit.

Long weekend break

By Neil W on 22-Nov-2016

There is always a small doubt in your mind when booking a property in an unfamiliar area based on photographs, however any doubts quickly vanished on arrival at Peaklands. This is a lovely , spacious , clean and well equipped bungalow in a nice village location. It was warm , the beds were comfy , as was the sofa in the lounge. A larger TV in the lounge and a TV in the bedroom would have enhanced the stay for me , but that is purely my personal preference and may be of insignificance for other guests The car did not move during our stay here. There is off road parking for one car on the drive, also a garage. It is located a 5 - 10 minute walk from the Monsal trail which we walked on both of our full days here , together with Woody the dog. The bungalow is dog friendly , there is even a jar our doggy gravy bone treats in the kitchen.

There a couple of dog friendly pubs in the village , again only 5 - 10 minutes walk from the bungalow. There was lots of info in the bungalow regarding local attractions , amenities and some suggested walks , complete with map and directions which can be taken out with you, most useful !

I would 100% recommend and return to Peaklands again.

Cosy base in the Peak District

By Jeniffer H on 24-Oct-2016

We spent a lovely week in October here. The property is warm and cosy, well supplied with everything that you could require. The village is quiet and friendly. Fresh milk and eggs from the farm, village stores and two pubs - both doing good food. There is lots of information in the welcome pack including well thought out walks from the doorstep. The Monsal trail is very easy walking or you can be more adventureous. Don't miss Chatsworth for grandeur and Bakewell for puddings. The garden is dog proof, which was a real asset for us. During our stay one of the owners calling in to check everything was fine - which it was. Only half an hour from the motorway, this is a real escape into the countryside and we would recommend it highly following our lovely stay.

Nice cosy cottage with the conservatory as a bonus!

By Jacob D on 11-Oct-2016

My wife and I stayed in the cottage in Great Longstone during our holidays from 24 until 29 September while visiting the Peak District. It was a bit difficult to find, because we didn't get good directions how to get there. However, we asked a few people living in the neighbourhood and they were so kind to show us the way to the cottage. When we were all settled, we enjoyed very much staying there in that quiet village and visiting the from there good accessable White Peak and Dark Peak area. The cottage felt very cosy, the kitchen had everything we needed and the beds slept o.k. , but the matrasses were a bit too hard for us, used as we are to memoryfoam matrasses at home. But let's not complain about that. We absolutely loved the conservartory! It's there that we lived most of the week, when we were not away. You have a nice view over the cricketfied towards the hills further away. Another bonus: The two pubs in the village, which are on walking distance from the cottage (very handy), provided us a few times with good food and nice drinks. We both recommand the place.
