    As the stone circle is only a short easy walk from the Arbor Low B&B it is well worth taking a stroll to see. Whilst there the views are stunning and you can walk the moors in any direction.  more »

    I'm sure it's a lovely stone circle but sadly our attempt to reach it was thwarted by a herd of cows who were mounting each other right in front of the gate to access the stone circle. Perhaps we will...  more »

    Is in a private farm, hard to find, without any indication, except Trip Advisor, and the only sign is small. You walk on a dirt road, and after a walking park. Few parking spaces, you pay £1 per person, although there is the owner. You go through the farm, somewhat neglected, and fields with livestock (careful where you put your feet). The site is impressive, with horizontal stones are protected by a "henge" (Beach). Unfortunately it is abandoned with tall grass and with very little descriptions, especially astronomical ones. Is a horizontal Stonehenge to be valued. Worth a quick visit, if you are nearby.

  • Interesting to see, although none of the stones are still standing. It's not too far a walk from the very small car park, note it is uphill and across a field with plenty of cow dung and cows!! I didn't visit the barrow, you can see it's a large mound that's it (seen one seen them all!). Please note there is an entrance fee per person ( currently £1) that you put in a money box by the farm.
  • Great place to view . Could you please tell the farmer to put the road sign back up . Its not a lot of good leaning against the wall in his yard .
  • Nice and low key stone circle in the middle of a farmer's field. Definitely worth a look, though admittedly a short visit
  • Easily one of the most important and best preserved henge monuments in the country. The earthworks (the ditch and bank) are especially well-preserved. Definitely worth a visit
  • Love it here :-D

Where to stay in Bakewell

Consider a stay in one of the Georgian-style cottages that populate the town center. Shops and restaurants are readily accessible to centrally located B&Bs and inns. A country inn closer to the outskirts of the city provides peace and quiet, as well as a midway point between the town and the main attractions in the countryside, such as the restored halls and manors.
