Came across this place by chance whilst looking through the Internet for somewhere to stay. The Penthouse Suite was clean and spacious, Amenities provided are adequate. Parking can be a bit of a challenge when the place is full, but we have always managed to park. Bagshaw Hall is ideally located to explore the various attractions in the area. Perhaps the only drawback was the missing Breakfast Room or Restaurant, but there are plenty of places to eat within walking distance from Bagshaw Hall. I should perhaps also make a mention of the 3 large, I really mean large - about 3 inches! - spiders which we found in our room over the period of one week. Never seen any house spiders like that. But this did not detract from the beauty of our stay at Bagshaw Hall.
We both really enjoyed a very restful break in this lovely old property within a 5 minute walking distance of the centre of Bakewell. From the initial greeting by Linda who showed us to our room (the Haddon Suite - lovely and cool despite the outside temperature being in the region of 32 degrees) to the excellent Continental breakfasts, comfortable bed and quiet room - we enjoyed every minute of our stay. The 5 minute walk into the town involves a steep short cut which, on the return journey is uphill, however, we took our time and didn't do badly for a couple of old codgers in our mid 70s. Just a mention for the staff who were excellent, friendly and went out of their way to make the visit memorable. We will definately stay here when we visit the town next time.
This boutique hotel is run by the very charming and extremely helpful and efficient Martin who could not do enough for us. It is a good idea to incorporate a mini kitchen arrangement in the room in order to organise one’s own breakfast. A sizeable airy room with original window shutters. Quiet and very peaceful. Our only suggestion to the hotel would be that much better lighting needed in bathroom, larger bath towels and a warning re rug in bedroom which could easily be a safety hazard as it rucks up.
Enjoyed a lovely weekend in Bakewell at Bagshaw Hall. Great stay started brilliantly with a lovely greeting from Georgina who showed us to our room which was nice and clean with magnificent shower. Just outside our room was a nicely lawned area and table and chairs overlooking Bakewell. Very short walk to the centre of Bakewell so the car stayed on the car park throughout our stay despite our dogs advancing years! Will definitely stay again.
We spent 4 nights in the Sleep Lodge and the Sir David Attenborough suite. This complex is newish; it is cleverly designed to allow for a large, comfortable bed, a very useful kitchenette and have reasonable space for clothes and kit too. We wanted the independence this Sleep Lodge offered and did not mind making the bed each day and no cleaning until we left. Bakewell has some really good restaurants across a good price range and all are easily reached on foot. Indeed the central location is a big plus point. Only one point to watch. The rooms are quiet due to excellent double glazing. But the stud walls between rooms are not. TV and other noise can be irksome. But there were few other guests until it filled up on the weekend we left. A good place to choose for very comfortable self-catering holiday.…
My wife and I spent a two night stay at the Sleep lodge in the Ranulph Fiennes Suite. it was deceptively spacious, immaculately clean and tastefully decorated. It had basic cooking facilities with a fridge, microwave and electric hob as well as a washing up sink. The suite has a lot of natural light from the large window which also provides lovely views across the valley. The large modern bathroom has a separate bath and shower cubicle. The staff were friendly, polite and very helpful. Many thanks for making our short stay so enjoyable.
We love the great architecture and stylish living spaces all of which you will find here, you won't do better for service and friendliness than being looked after by Linda and Julie. For the age of the place the upkeep, decor and cleanliness is amazing. Whilst it is easy to appreciate! I know it takes a great diligence and hard work to achieve. We have just planned our next visit here following Linda's advice will be in the Cavendish Suite. Warmest regards to all readers the Craven family
We spent two nights as a family of six and had rented three rooms. They were all placed in one area next to each other which was great. All the rooms (or suites) are very well appointed and incredibly comfortable. Our rooms were huge and each had a kitchenette, microwave etc. They were able to accommodate my daughter's dog for a small fee. The Hall is five minutes walk into Bakewell and has on site parking which was a little tight but perfectly adequate. This will not be the cheapest stay in Bakewell but it will certainly be the best and most comfortable. Highly recommended. We will be back the next time we visit the area.
We loved the Hall with all its charm. A hidden gem indeed, with friendly staff and very close to Bakewell town centre, which was a stroll away. The Manners pub was top notch lunch and we dined out at The Woodyard in the evening which had great cocktails!
Just spent two nights at this vastly overpriced and unfriendly b &b. Nice house, nice room, very nice helpful chap called Nigel. BUT, the two women we had the misfortune to speak to and see were awful ! We arrived about 5.00pm and our room wasn’t even ready and the bed wasn’t made. The TV didn’t work either, until Nigel came and fixed it. One of the women arrived and immediately was ONLY interested in the MONEY , full payment there and then. Money, money, money. The shower was ridiculously bad and dribbled out over the top of the shower head. In the first morning one woman came to our door with the breakfast which was a pretty rank cooked plate and a continental breakfast consisting of one croissant , an apple a yoghurt pot and for some reason a small plastic covered chilli flavoured cheese bit. When we got back from our day out, the bed was unmade, the towels were on the floor and the dirty breakfast things were still there. When we questioned this we were rudely told by a Scottish woman “ the room isn’t serviced “ “ I can’t be responsible for you not being told that “ COVID was the reason for the breakfast stuff not being collected even though she insisted on barging into the room to give it to us, whilst my wife was in bed ! She said they wore gloves whilst they cooked it 😂, yeah, of course they did !! One of the women questioned how we got on there and was quite put out when we told her. She said she’d tell the owner but we think she was the owner. These women ruined a couple of nights we had looked forward to. Appalling ! And cost us £170 per night !! Sooo overpriced !!! Never go back.…
