Stanton Moor up the hill is well worth a visit, mystical and beautiful. Lovely walks around the Monsal Trail. Only downside was the wifi which was not constant and weak. The cottage...

About the neighbourhood
Bakewell is a market town and there is a wonderful market on a Monday which is well worth a visit. Bakewell is also full of antique and gift shops, cafes, tea shops and various pubs and restaurants. You can walk alongside the lovely River Derwent with its ducks and trout. Bakewell is famous for its Bakewell Puddings which are absolutely delicious and a must for visitors. A large Country Show is held in August and there is also a big Carnival during the summer.

The old steam train station of Peak Rail is less than a mile away and for those a little more adventurous, you will find excellent facilities for horse-riding and trips in a carriage and four. Walkers will love the area with walking direct from the door or within a short drive. The nearby Tissington and Monsal Trails are superb f...
