Bakewell is a small market town and civil parish in the Derbyshire Dales district of Derbyshire, England, well known for the local confection Bakewell pudding. Venture out of the city with trips to Ilam (Ilam Park & Church of the Holy Cross), Wild Park Derbyshire (in Brailsford) and Ashbourne (Dovedale & Carsington Water). And it doesn't end there: take in the exciting artwork at Chatsworth House, look for all kinds of wild species at The Roaches Peak District, stroll through Monsal Trail, and explore the activities along Ladybower Reservoir.
