Thanks you so much for facilitating a wonderful family holiday at Roslyn House. After having to postpone the trip twice because of Covid we finally had our week together in Bakewell and a great time was had by all. Everyone I have dealt with at Peak Venues has been very friendly, helpful and professional and I would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone wishing to spend time in the area. I also really appreciated the way you dealt with our reservation when lockdowns were first announced, it was a very stressful time for all but you did a fantastic job, thank you.

This is the second time we have booked a holiday home through Peak Venues and were as pleased as we were with the first house we stayed in. Roslyn is in a perfect location so we were able to do lots of walking with the dog and also just stroll into Bakewell or Ashford, where we visited the recommended Bulls Head. The house itself was perfect and we very quickly felt we were at home with all the things you might need to hand. It's lovely to stay somewhere that actually is exactly as described and how we hoped it would be.

Bakewell is the largest town within the Peak District National Park and is a hub of activity. Market day is on a Monday and as well as a large range of stalls there is also an agricultural market which is definitely worth a look around as it offers a great insight todays farming community. The town also hosts a craft and gift fair every weekend in Brigade town hall. The Bakewell Old House Museum occupies one of the oldest buildings in Bakewell and dates back to 1543, it provides a fascinating glimpse into the towns past and is very interesting and informative with lots to appeal to all ages.Obviously no trip to Bakewell would be complete without sampling an original Bakewell pudding. The Old Original Bakewell Pudding Shop claims to have the old the original recipe and still makes the puddings by hand from the secret recipe.

With the Monsal Trail close by it would be rude not to take the opportunity to cycle/walk along this old Midland Railway line which runs from Bakewell right up to Blackwell Mill, in Chee Dale. The trail offers 8.5 miles of traffic free and mud free cycling/walking and with the recently reopened tunnels offers one of the most spectacular leisure routes in Britain for cycling, walking and horse riding. The nearest cycle hire is at Hassop station which is great place to stop for a bite to eat or for a coffee and nice piece of homemade cake! There is also a lovely little gift shop and book shop and a children’s play area. If walking it also worth leaving the trail and dropping down in to Monsal Dale itself to enjoy walking along down by the river.
From the property you there is a lovely short walk through fields by the meandering River Wye to the picture postcard village of Ashford in the Water. Ashford in the Water is probably one of the most beautiful villages in the Peak District and is famous for its beautiful low arched medieval Sheepwash Bridge. You can easily spend an hour or so exploring the pretty village, it is particularly worth visiting when the well dressing festival is on as the village has 6 wells to dress, making it one of the largest well dressings in the area.

Baslow, Curbar and Froggatt Edges are only a short drive away and offer a spectacular walking route where you can view both the Dark and White Peaks. These three gritstone edges are part an almost continuous line of cliffs running from Stanage Edge down to Birchen Edge at the southern end. These Edges once famous for millstones, are now known as great places to rock climb. There over 200 rock-climbing routes on Curbar Edge alone, making the edges a mecca for walkers and climbers alike. For walkers Baslow Edge also offers interesting features including a memorial to the Duke of Wellington, a
giant rock called the Eagle Stone which in years gone by the young men of Baslow used it to show off their prowess and fitness for marriage by climbing to the top and even some resident Highland cows.There are many different routes, some circular, some linear around the edges and also different staring/finishing points. A nice circular route which also
includes walking along the river Derwent can be viewed by clicking here.
No visit to the Peak District would be complete without visiting the fabulous Chatsworth House. At Chatsworth there is something to do for every member of the family. The Farmyard and Adventure playground is a brilliant day out for children of all ages - with animal handling, milking demonstrations and daily activities, plus a woodland adventure playground with slides, trampolines and more!Then there is obviously the house itself, steeped with history it’s one of Britain’s greatest stately homes and has been passed down through 16 generations of the Cavendish family. The gardens are equally as impressive as the house, over 100 acres and as well and the beautiful flowers and plants, there are giant water features and sculptures dotted around. Again suitable for all the family, with the maze, the garden trails, and the famous water cascade to keep the little ones occupied.
