  • The only word I have to describe this place is eclectic. Huge amounts of the objects on display have little or known obvious link to the house, Bakewell or the surrounding area. A good way to loose an hour though!

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.
