       Next Weekend Camping  Meet :  Bakewell Showground 26th-29th August (DE45 1AQ)

Bakewell Show Ground in

Bakewell

Bakewell is the only market town within the Peak District National Park boundary and its attractive courtyards, independent shops, cafés and its location on the River Wye make it a hugely popular destination for tourists to the Peak District.
Named after Badeca's well, indicating the importance of the springs, Bakewell almost became a spa town. The Bath House, built by the Duke of Rutland in 1697, still retains the original 16ft x 33ft bath in the cellar. However, the temperature of the water would always have been against the town's development as a spa – at only 11ºC/52ºF, it was less then half the temperature of the spring at neighbouring Buxton! You can see the tufa rock formed by the spring water in the walls of the porch in front of the building.

Bakewell is best known for a confection made by mistake. In the 19th century a cook at the Rutland Arms was baking a jam tart but misunderstood the recipe and so Bakewell Pudding was created. 

 Bakewell is never quiet for long; Well Dressings, Carnival Week and an Arts Festival are all important dates in the calendar. The riverside walk from the bridge downstream to the Recreation Ground has been popular to generations of visitors, who have stopped to feed the ducks. The Old House Museum behind the church houses, occupies one of the oldest buildings in Bakewell and dates back to 1543. It gives a fascinating glimpse into the towns past. Market Day is on Monday, when the town is at its' busiest. Farmers Markets are held in the Agricultural Business Centre on the last Saturday each month.


Followed by Camping  Meet :  Sherwood Forest Farm 2nd-4th September (NG21 9HW)

Sherwood Forest Farm Near

Edwinstowe

 A vibrant and busy village in the heart of Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire, the home of the legendary Robin Hood. An ideal location to explore local attractions such as Sherwood Forest with the famous Major Oak, Sherwood Pines with its excellent cycle routes and paths and Clumber Park and Rufford Park with their beautiful grounds to explore. Edwinstowe High Street is a two minute walk from the Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre and bustles with a variety of individual and unique shops, where you can browse for that perfect souvenir or gift, as well as butchers, bakers, newsagent and a supermarket. Edwinstowe benefits a wide range of services and activities covering all interests and age groups. Such a diverse range of activities creates a community spirit as there is always something going on.
