Ashford In the Water or Bakewell? Accomodations

I am visiting the Peak District in early July. Was told about the Westmorland House in Bakewell, but would be interested in advice on other accomodations in Bakewell and also Ashford in the Water. Looking for medium price range, not isolated but not on a main road. My boyfriend and I are visiting to go walking. Any advice as to lodging and which town is preferred is appreciated.

Can't help with accomd info.

Regarding the two places, Bakewell is a medium sized market town. A very pleasant tourist destination with shops, pubs, restaurants etc etc.

Ashford in the Water is a very beautiful, very small village that is nearby to Bakewell. It has limited shopping/eating facilities.

We have just arrived back from the Peak District and stayed at Westmorland House in Bakewell, if you have not already booked a place to stay we highly recommend Westmorland.

We really could not fault the service, the location (only a few minutes walk to the centre of Bakewell) or the B&B itself. The owner takes great interest in your day without being intrusive, there is a wide range of leaflets on walks etc in the breakfast room and the breakfast really sets you up for a good days walking.

Bakewell is a very pleasant town, with lots of lovely places to eat and very cute little shops all without being to commercial, on top of that there are some fantastic walks and cycle rides that leave from the town.

Ashford in the Water is, again, a very cute little place to visit. We didn’t see that many places to stay or eat in the evenings, so you might have to travel somewhere else, however that’s only what we saw. Ashford is very very picturesque, lots of the walks we done went through Ashford.

Enjoy your stay

We also stayed at Westmorland house recently and was trying to write them a glowing review but they don't appear on here. This was our second time in the peak district and last time we stayed in Ashford in the water. Ashford was more picturesque and tiny, but it was much handier to walk to a restaurant in Bakewell whereas from Ashford you would have to drive and then you can't have any alcohol! There are loads of restaurants in Bakewell. The reason I loved Westmorland is the seperate entrance to the house, the varied breakfast and the folder full of local walks ranging from 4m to 10m walks. We did some of these and they were very picturesque and took us all over the peak district.

If you click to the Bakewell Hotels pages (or anywhere else Hotels) and click the Write a Review button at top right, you should be able to give a review of a place not yet listed. You have to give stuff like their website, phone or email - I guess so TA can contact them to verify status.
