Bed & Breakfast In Bakewell
Bakewell is the ‘Capital of the Peak’, and home to the Peak District National Park Authority. With easy access to all parts of Derbyshire, it has been a popular market town for centuries, drawing in travellers, tradesmen and visitors. Little wonder then that there are several bed and breakfast in Bakewell establishments from which to choose.
Within the town you will find a diverse and comprehensive range of amenities, activities, shops, businesses, restaurants and leisure facilities. If you would like to be within walking distance then Croft Cottages is a bed and breakfast in Bakewell situated only 200 yards from the centre of town and a lovely walk over the 13th century five arched bridge.
There are several old coaching inns in the town which offer bed and breakfast in Bakewell, including The Red Lion, The Peacock and The Queens Arms.
However, if you prefer to be a short drive away from the hubbub of Bakewell life, River Cottage is listed as a bed and breakfast in Bakewell but is actually a chocolate-box pretty cottage at nearby Ashford-in-the-Water.
Bakewell was granted a market charter in 1330. For nearly 700 years visitors have flooded into the town to walk around the colourful array of stalls which suddenly appear early in the morning. There is also a cattle market where local farmers continue to buy and sell their animals.
However, many farms have diversified their businesses, so that some bed and breakfast in Bakewell can be found ‘down on the farm’ such as Bolehill Farm which has stunning views over White Peak countryside.
Bakewell has several crossing places over the River Wye which meanders through the valley en route to romantic Haddon Hall. At Lumford is an ancient packhorse bridge and sheep wash, whilst modern day traffic still uses the central bridge that dates back to the 1300’s and has surely stood the test of time.
To stay at a bed and breakfast in Bakewell puts you on the doorstep to not only a wide selection of local high quality shops, but it is also on a network of public transport routes to major towns and cities in the Peak District.
Some of the bed and breakfast in Bakewell properties look towards All Saints Church which occupies a slightly elevated setting overlooking the town and has a slender Victorian spire which reaches up to the heavens.
