This is in a great location, about 5 mins away from centre of Bakewell.
We wanted a picturesque location with easy access to both country-side for day-time walks in the Peak District and pub/restaurants for the evenings. Plus we wanted snow – and we got all of it!
We stayed for 3 nights in-between Christmas and New Year and chose a double-room in the Sleep Lodge rather than a suite in the Bagshaw Hall itself. The Sleep Lodge is great-value-for-money with its own kitchenette area (microwave, kettle, sink and fridge). The room was smart, comfortable, large and modernly furnished in an annexe to Bagshaw Hall itself.
Bagshaw Hall is always going to be the pull, but if you don't actually have the budget to stay in it, at least with the Sleep Lodge you still get the benefit of seeing it throughout your stay. We would definitely consider staying in the Hall for a special occasion.
We made the most of our location and took a bus from the bottom of the hill out to Castleton (just an hour's ride away) and had a few hours walk in the snow and on another day walked part of the Monsal Trail which is only just across the river. Bakewell itself has a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants and the quality of the food on offer is very good. Don't forget to try the renowned Bakewell Pudding.
In the summer there are also many other attractions pretty much on the door-step, especially if you have a car, but Bakewell is well-served by buses either passing through or terminating there.
So this is a great place to choose whether you are planning a weekend break, special occasion or much longer stay.
