What can guests enjoy when staying in the Bakewell area?
Bakewell is the only market town within the Peak District National Park boundary and its attractive courtyards, independent shops, cafés and its location on the River Wye make it a hugely popular destination for tourists to discover the Peak District. Bakewell is best known for a confection made by mistake. In the 19th century a cook at the Rutland Arms was baking a jam tart but misunderstood the recipe and so Bakewell Pudding was created. Now almost every visitor to the town samples this culinary delight. The fine spire of All Saints Church looks down on the town, where there are some grand old houses, notably the Market Hall, The Old Town Hall and the Almshouses on South Church Street.
Where can guests enjoy food and drink?
For a cosy pub atmosphere and locally sourced menus, try The Devonshire Arms in Beeley or The Devonshire Arms in Pilsley, both renowned for their quality food and a great selection of local ales. If you are looking for a decadent treat for a special occasion, the Cavendish Hotel in Baslow offers a traditional afternoon tea and fine dining in 3 AA rosette The Gallery Restaurant.
