About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- The Rutland Arms Hotel was built in 1804 & is said to be the birthplace of the Bakewell pudding
- You'll be following in the footsteps of Jane Austen, Charles Dickens & Lord Byron who have all stayed at this hotel
- Chatsworth House & Haddon Hall, where 2005's "Pride & Prejudice" was filmed, are both nearby
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 is steeped in history and tradition. Not only is The Rutland Arms Hotel reported to be the birthplace of the Bakewell pudding -- the thing that Bakewell is "probably best known for", according to Lonely Planet -- but it's also hosted the likes of Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, JMW Turner and Lord Byron.
This stone-built property is reportedly where Austen stayed while writing "Pride and Prejudice", and Haddon Hall and Chatsworth House, which both feature in the 2005 film adaptation of the novel, are both within 15 minutes' 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 20 minutes' drive away.
The hotel's Square Restaurant serves locally sourced produce, and all bedrooms feature country-style furnishings, a television, and tea- and coffee-making facilities. There's free Wi-Fi throughout.
