Overview

The Rutland Arms Hotel is a Georgian property that was built in 1804. It's located in Bakewell, a busy market town in the Peak District National Park, and if you stay here you'll be visiting a property that's steeped in both history and tradition. Not only is The Rutland Arms Hotel the reported birthplace of the Bakewell pudding -- the thing that Bakewell is "probably best known for", according to Lonely Planet -- butit's also hosted the likes of Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, JMW Turner and Lord Byron.

This stone-built property is reportedly where Jane Austen stayed while writing "Pride and Prejudice", and Haddon Hall and Chatsworth House, which feature in the 2005 film adaptation of the novel, are both within a 15-minute drive of the hotel.

Bakewell is "ringed by famous walking trails" (Lonely Planet), so it's a great base for those that appreciate the great outdoors. There's a 3.5-mile circular route along the Monsal Trail to Hassop Station, returning across fields to Bakewell. The spa town of Buxton and Matlock, Derbyshire's county town, are a 20-minute drive away.

The hotel's Square Restaurant serves locally sourced produce and you can expect to find chicken, salmon and cheeses on the menu. All bedrooms feature country-style furnishings, a television, and tea- and coffee-making facilities. There's free Wi-Fi throughout.

Only issue we had that the ensuite shower only produced a trickle of water. Real shame as this let down our review of stay. Reported to reception for their consideration
