Nestling on the northern fringe of Chatsworth Park, the attractive village of Baslow is close to some of the Dark Peak’s most dramatic scenery. Baslow lies on the banks of the River Derwent and is home to cafés and restaurants including a Michelin-starred restaurant. It’s conveniently located and is very popular with visitors keen to explore nearby Chatsworth, Haddon Hall, Bakewell and the Monsal Trail. This is an excellent base for walking and exploring some of the area’s finest countryside, including its famous gritstone edges, such as Baslow, Curbar and Froggatt - all boasting breathtaking views across surrounding hills, valleys and moorland. Close by you will find Bakewell an attractive little market town retaining a delightful rural atmosphere and offering a good selection of shops, restaurants and pubs, as well as local farmers’ markets. There is an old 17th century market hall in the town centre and a modern leisure centre with swimming pool nearby. Both the rugged Dark Peak and the softer limestone White Peak are within easy reach, and Alton Towers, Britain’s premier theme park, is only a short drive away. There are many stately homes to visit including Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall, to, mention just a few, while the impressive caverns in nearby Castleton and Little John’s burial place in Hathersage are also well worth a visit. Take a trip to Buxton and visit the impressive Edwardian Opera House, designed by Frank Matcham, who also designed the London Palladium. Shop 400 yards, Pub 800 yards and restaurant 50 yards.
