About Priestcliffe Near Bakewell for Cottage Holidays

 

Set within the natural beauty of the Peak District National Park is the small hamlet of Priestcliffe. Its location in the Derbyshire Peak District makes it a terrific base for holidaymakers, hikers and backpackers. This charming rural hamlet is surrounded by hills, trees and fields, making it an idyllic location for a country cottage holiday or rural retreat break.

The nearby village of Taddington is a top village, literally!  This village is distinguished by being one of the highest villages in England, at 1,100 feet and is worth a visit when taking a cottage holiday in this part of the country. For wonderful scenery, we recommend a visit to Monsal Head. This high viewpoint overlooks the valley of Monsal Dale, an area so picturesque that it has been used as a location for several films. A man-made landmark here is also much photographed, namely the Headstone Viaduct, which spans the River Wye. This imposing structure is some 300 feet long and is more often referred to as the Monsal Dale Viaduct by the locals. The former railway line is now part of the Monsal Trail. This walking route is about 12 miles in length and follows the River Wye for most of the way, taking in some gorgeous countryside. If you prefer to cycle, this is possible at the trail’s eastern end but not at the western part.

Enjoy being a tourist on holiday near Bakewell
 

Priestcliffe’s proximity to the town of Bakewell offers another dimension to a self-catering break here, with a choice of restaurants, shops and pubs on offer nearby. Bakewell is a most attractive town with the River Wye going through its centre and many fine historic buildings.  An old market town, a market takes place every Monday. As well as shopping, visitors like to amble along the riverside walks. Of course, the town is famous for its Bakewell Pudding and the townspeople still promote their culinary claim to fame.

The Old House Museum in Bakewell tells the story of the town’s industrial past and how the Victorians used to live and work.  Displays of textiles, lace and costumes form a fascinating part of the collection. In addition, a Tudor dressing up box and a Tudor toilet provide lots of fun!

For more hints and tips on things to see and do within the Peak District National Park on a cottage holiday why not pop in to the Tourist Information Office at Bakewell located on Bridge Street. Visit for free leaflets and helpful advice on local attractions.

Learn about current life in this slice of Derbyshire by timing your break to coincide with the Annual Bakewell Show. Held at the Bakewell Showground on the first Wednesday and Thursday each August, it’s one of the oldest agricultural shows in the country. However, the organisers are keen to point out that it is more than an agriculture show and it’s a family fun event. In late June, Bakewell participates in the traditional Derbyshire custom of well dressing and Carnival Week takes place.

Priestcliffe offers a quiet retreat, surrounded by wonderful scenery and opportunities for outdoor pursuits but with busier town attractions close by, making it an excellent destination for a rural country cottage holiday. Enjoy browsing through our fantastic choice of rural country cottages, large country houses and log cabins.
