Part of the Devonshire Hotels group, run by the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, The Cavendish Hotel in Baslow, Bakewell, oozes with this creative duo’s brilliance.

You will feel comfortable and welcomed from the moment you step foot through the door, and quite frankly, won’t ever want to leave.

The rooms and broken into five styles, such as Standard Room, Superior Room, The Coach House, Hartington Junior Suite and The Redesdale Suite. Within each, you will find grand, yet not overbearing, décor.

The Hartington Junior Suite, for example, is located in the oldest part of the dwelling and is a luxurious masterpiece, featuring a luxury bathroom with a wet-room style walk-in shower and marble surround bath and underfloor heating. Plus, the room features exquisite views across the local landscape and estate.

You’ll have your choice of several venues to eat in during your stay, including the Gallery Restaurant, the Garden Room, The Kitchen Table and the Private Dining Room. While you can also take afternoon tea should you wish.

The Gallery has three AA Rosettes and is run by Adam Harper, who joined the hotel in 2018 having worked in several high-end venues including the Michelin-starred Fischer’s in Baslow.

If you want to get a little closer to the cooking action, then up to four guests may have a seat at the chef’s table in the kitchen to see how things work during a busy service. Basically, it is theatre for foodies and will put you at the heart of the action, where you’ll see exactly how the professionals ensure the perfect service is carried out.

Now, onto the Peaks, you’ll want to get out and explore some of the most fantastic landscapes in the British Isles.

You’re also just a short distance from the Duke and Duchess’s dwelling of Chatsworth House, which is a stunning home and open to guests.
