For a more laid-back atmosphere, head to one of the many pubs in the Peak District and relax in front of a roaring fire with some hearty and tasty food. The Devonshire Arms in the picturesque village of Beeley would be a prime example.

When visiting the area, it would be a mistake not to try one of its most famous delicacies, the Bakewell tart. Many cafes in the Peak District will sell both Bakewell tarts and puddings, but the original would be the Bakewell Pudding Shop, having sold the desert since 1865. Unsurprisingly, the shop is based in the market town of Bakewell and contains both a restaurant and café, providing customers with the chance to try the pudding and tart, as well as a range of delicious main meals and cakes.
