Famous for its scrumptious, calorie-laden pudding and home to a
number of Bakewell cottages, this attractive market town nestles in
the Peak District National Park and is an extremely popular tourist
Monday is market day when the streets come alive with
stallholders, locals and visitors. There's a monthly
farmers' market too, as well as a farmers' market shop -
open daily and a great place to stock up with provisions for your
Bakewell is full of attractive courtyards and streets lined with
independent shops, all sorts of places to eat and drink and many
fine buildings. There's the old Market Hall (home of Tourist
Office), Bath House and Gardens, the Church of All Saints and the
Old House Museum, featuring costume exhibitions, a Victorian
kitchen, toys and a peculiar story on display about an elephant
said to be buried in town!
For a deliciously sweet treat, seek out the town's three
pudding shops, all of which claim to have the original recipe for
the legendary Bakewell Pudding - it's easy to burn off calories
with an exhilarating hike in the National Park! Many of our
cottages have stunning views of the peak district
landscape, it's rolling hills and quiet streams are spectacular
to wake up to in the morning.
What else? Enjoy riverside walks by day and ghost tours by night. Look out for Holme Bridge, once used by packhorses. View all sorts of motorbikes at the M&C Collection of Historic Motorcycles. And don't forget Bakewell is just a short drive from two historic gems - the medieval and Tudor manor house of Haddon Hall and Chatsworth House, one of the UK's best-loved estates and an absolute must on everyone's Bakewell cottage holiday!
