B&B in Bakewell
The small market town of Bakewell is, arguably, most famous for the delicious pudding created by accident by a local 19th-century cook. There's much more to Bakewell than just tasty treats, though. The idyllic chocolate-box town lies in the heart of the Peak District National Park, surrounded by starkly beautiful moorland scenery. It's cut through by the meandering River Wye, whose banks are strewn with magnificent weeping willows and spanned by several old honey-coloured stone bridges. You'll feel like you've stepped back in time when you amble through the high street, where the achingly beautiful stone-built shops have names like "The Old Original Bakewell Pudding Shop", "Brocklehursts" and "Roly's Fudge Pantry". When you arrive at your Bakewell bed and breakfast, you'll quickly discover why the town is such a magnet for artists and photographers.
Cosy country cottages and historic B&Bs, Bakewell
Bakewell bed and breakfasts couldn't be any more charming. You'd be hard pushed to find anything modern in town. Most are housed in the centuries-old mellow stone buildings whose handful of guestrooms are used by hikers and bikers who've come to explore the Peak District. Some have been revamped in recent years, transforming themselves into 5-star boutiques providing a pinch of luxury to your adventure. If you truly want to immerse yourself in nature, try to nab 1 of the stone cottages outside of town, where you can start the walking trails right from your doorstep. Whatever you're looking for, Expedia makes it a breeze to find your perfect match. Plug in your location and budget, then scroll through the descriptions and photos before booking in just a few clicks.
When you arrive, you'll be guaranteed a warm welcome. One of the perks of a Bakewell bed and breakfast is tapping into the insider knowledge of the owners, who know the most spectacular hiking routes, the best places to eat and attractions to explore. Once you've checked in, you'll find the guestrooms come equipped with everything you might expect from a hotel. Comfortable double beds, flat-screen TVs on the walls and facilities for making hot drinks is the norm. When you wake in the morning there'll always be a home-cooked breakfast waiting for you downstairs and when you've come back from a day out sightseeing or walking, you can kick off your muddy boots and relax in the lounge with a freshly brewed cup of tea and a little Bakewell tart, before slipping into the bath in your ensuite. Have you thought about combining the quaint rural break with a weekend in the urban sprawl of Manchester?
When you stay at a B&B, Bakewell becomes the jumping off point for hikes in the Peak District
Most holidaymakers come to stay in Bakewell bed and breakfasts to use them as a jumping off point for the great outdoors. If you're feeling energetic, try the Monsal Trail, a hiking, cycling and horse riding route that meanders through some of the most spectacular parts of the Peak District. If you fancy a day off the trails, there's lots to keep you busy in town. On Mondays, there's a bustling outdoor market where you can hunt for bargains, while weekends see 1 of the country's most celebrated farmers' markets, where you can buy top-quality produce directly from source. History buffs should visit The Old House Museum, which houses artefacts and information about the town's past. Thornbridge Brewery is open to the public and offers tastings of their fine craft beers. Of course, you can't say you've been to town without having a Bakewell tart and a cup of tea in one of the quaint cafes.
