A truly wonderful apartment overlooking the River Wye with its wildfowl and fish enhancing the scene outside, which is beautiful in all weathers. The furnishings were very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. Although you are very central, by night it is quiet apart from the sound of the water as it spills across the small weir that runs under the mill. We would happily return and recommend this lovely place to friends and family.

A big 'wow' as soon as you walk in, that 'plenty of space' feeling and a beautiful view over a weir and across the river.

Loads of equipment was provided and my children loved the mezzanine area with desk and cupboards. In a great position to walk into Bakewell which is 2 minutes away.

A beautifully furnished apartment, very clean and spacious in an idyllic setting. The central location is very handy for getting around Bakewell and further afield.

The cottage was in a perfect situation with wonderful views across the river and it was close to all amenities. A very nice place to spend a week's holiday, would stay again.

A lovely well furnished apartment in a great location. The apartment was clean, spacious, decorated to a high standard and within a one minute walk of Bakewell town centre. Overall we found this to be a great base for our holiday and a pleasure to return to each day.

What a find! This all-found, beautifully furnished apartment is well-located - close to everything in the town of Bakewell and an ideal location for exploring further afield.

We have stayed for Christmas week 2016. Lots of food/drink/walk options from our doorstep. Didn't get in the car for 4 days after arriving! Very spacious, comfortable, practical accommodation for friends/family groups. Sharing one bathroom was no problem. We had hoped there would be some Christmas decorations but not too disappointed that there weren't.

The apartment is very central in a beautiful village. It is very comfortable and clean. The beds are that comfy you don't want to get up. There's a beautiful view from the lounge windows and it's only a two minute walk into the village. It isn't suitable for disabled people if they can't do stairs as it's on the first floor. We would certainly stay here again. There are a few things that would make it perfect... 1. A pint of milk would be a lovely extra, especially when travelling from afar 2. A better toaster with four slots as it's a real bind with only two especially if six people are staying 3. A list of important things eg local doctors, dentist, days bins go, recycling, etc is very important Another key would be great as if there are six people not everyone goes out together All in all though a lovely apartment and as we've said would love to come again
