On our way home from Branston, we stopped off at the beautiful Bakewell. We'd been meaning to visit for a while but never got around to going, so this was the perfect opportunity to stretch our legs and have an explore. We were really lucky weather-wise and the rain held off long enough for us to have a good look around the town. There are so many quirky shops and windy streets to nosey around, we were in our element. I even managed to find a cafe that sold gluten and dairy free cakes, the lemon slice was the most delicious thing ever. Mr A had a traditional Bakewell pudding, a little different to the Bakewell tarts we are used to!
We finished off our little trip down by the river. The water was so clear, I was dying to get in for a paddle! We strolled along the riverbank taking in the gorgeous scenery and trying to escape being chased by geese...I'm not their biggest fan. The town and surroundings are just idyllic, we will certainly be visiting again!
Have you ever been to Bakewell?
