We will be laving Gatwick first thing on a Sunday morning and heading to Bakewell. We are using Bakewell as a base to visit family etc. I can see the journey on the map as part of the way on the M1. I know this is a very broad question and could open a can of worrms but here goes. Could someone please suggest a nice area to stop somewhere along the way as I dont know where to start. It can be a stop for morning tea or late lunch or both. A castle, a nice quaint village or a beautiful cathederal that would be a shame to drive by and miss. No museums or art exhibitions though. That will be another time. We are not in a hurry to get to Bakewell so dont mind the deviations. In fact we just want to see and enjoy as much as we can and it will be some years before we can visit again.
Thanks to all for all the help
