  • 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.

  • Ancient stone circle with it's own weather system. Usually wet muddy and windy. Beautiful scenery and good vibes.
  • Fascinating place with an eerie but powerful vibe. Very spiritual place, definitely worth a visit.
  • Great views over the country side . BNB nearby also lovely.
  • 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.
  • Stepping into history brilliant, in good order well worth a visit.

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.
