Bakewell itself is a vibrant town within the heart of the national park, and is home to many local amenities together with the magnificent Chatsworth Estate and Haddon Hall. The River Wye runs through the centre, providing opportunities for relaxing by the water’s edge or enjoying riverside walks. The nearby Monsal Trail provides a traffic-free route for walkers, cyclists (bike hire available at Hassop Station at cost) and horse riders, straight through to Buxton. Local key annual events include the Eroica Britannia British Cycling Festival, Bakewell Show, Well Dressings, Carnival Week, Bakewell Arts Festival and Bakewell Music Festival.

Surrounding Peak District towns and villages within a 30-minute drive include the fascinating plague village of Eyam, Castleton, Tideswell and Hartington. The major cities of Sheffield, Derby and Manchester can all be reached in around an hour, as can Britain’s premier theme park, Alton Towers. Shop, pub and restaurant 175 yards.

We had a great week at Bookkeepers Place, I would heartily recommend it. So quiet and yet right in the centre of Bakewell. We particularly loved the balcony, great for a summer evening and so remarkably quiet considering the location. The flat itself is compact but perfect for a couple, very well equipped and spotlessly clean. The allotted parking space is barely a minute's walk away. We will definitely be back again soon.

A very fine apartment which had been tastefully modernised to a high standard. We found it spotlessly clean, well equipped and comfortably furnished. Bakewell is an attractive small town and an excellent base for visiting the Peak District with lovely local walks available including to Chatsworth and Haddon Hall. The town has many eating places and some interesting independent shops. We had a great stay.
