 Whether you like guided walks or going out alone, walks in Bakewell mean seeing the sights and sounds of a very popular town. The Riverside Path is a great one for the elderly and infirm, the pushchair and the toddlers too. To walk along the River Wye, feed the ducks and other wildfowl is a popular tradition and a memorable one for sure. Marvel at the huge trout in the crystal clear waters, especially if you look over the Gothic arched bridge. Walk further and meander alongside the green riverbanks and see the showground, the home of the Bakewell show.

Walks in Bakewell may mean simply wandering round all the streets, finding new places you never knew were there before. Meet up with old friends and new and sample the delights of Bakewell, pubs and restaurants. Start your walks in Bakewell and find yourself in neighbouring villages such as Ashford in the water, Rowsley, or maybe as far as Chatsworth. Walks in Bakewell are wondrous. Whether you're a fair weather walker, or a committed rambler, walks in Bakewell are always a pleasure in any weather.

Mable goes trailing around Bakewell Time taken – 1 1/4 hours There are times when you just want an easy walk and sometimes you can step out your front door and make the most of the lovely Peak District countryside that we live in or you can choose to venture further afield for some different scenery, but equally unchallenging strolling. This is one of those walks and if you find yourself in the market town of Bakewell wearing sensible shoes, with an hour or so to kill, this is the walk for you. We found ourselves...
A Bakewell walk - Peak District Walks
  Circular Walk Peter Sargeant & Anny Jones This circular walk starts in the nationally important Deep Dale nature reserve and heads via the picturesque upland village of Sheldon to the Magpie Mine – a Scheduled Ancient Monument and stark relic of the area’s lead mining industry – before returning to Deep Dale via Sheldon’s high limestone meadows. This walk is packed with interest and it’s easy going for almost all of the five mile route. The steepish final descent through Deep...
Sheldon village and Magpie Mine - Peak District Walks
This is a long walk, and whilst the terrain isn’t difficult, the walk requires a full day’s attention and shouldn’t be underestimated. There are a few options to shorten it, but it will likely be at least 13 miles if you aren’t planning on using public transport to return to Bakewell. It was a bank holiday Monday when we tackled this route, so rain was guaranteed, and duly came, lasting without let-up for the whole day. The walk leaves Bakewell by a path running behind Bakewell Junior School. To find it, walk...
Bakewell Circular – 16 miles
Rowsley, Haddon and Chatsworth. Time taken 3 hours This walk is a bit of a trek but if you enjoy Peak District natural scenery combined with some man- made historical building this is the dog walk for you, as it passes both of the Peak Districts premier estates – Haddon Hall and Chatsworth. It is a pretty easy walk though it covers over 8 miles so make sure you are prepared to be out for most of the day. Our walk started outside The Peacock Hotel, in the village of Rowsley, on the A6, and continued along the...
Rowsley, Haddon and Chatsworth - Peak District Walks
This walk begins and ends in the popular Peak District town of Bakewell and is approximately 5 ½ miles in length.  It takes in mature woodland, rolling parkland and the chocolate box village of Edensor, on the spectacular Chatsworth Estate.  Most of the paths are well-walked and marked, but some through the woodland are less defined and can be slippery in wet weather, especially on the hilly parts. The easiest place to begin is at the back of the large modern cattle market (Grid Ref SK2268, Post code DE45 1BU) off Coombs...
Bakewell Circular Walk - Woods and Parklands
I’d heard intriguing things about the Hermit’s Cave at Cratcliffe Tor and we used my partner’s birthday lunch in Birchover as an opportunity to visit this magical place. Starting at the Red Lion, Main Street, turn right out of the pub and walk down the street, heading west.  The main village street bears right, into The Mires. Don’t follow this but go straight on down the track ahead, which is a continuation of Main Street.  On the right is the Druid Inn, and above that is Rowtor.  This fascinating...
Walk from Birchover to the Hermit’s Cave and back
Mable finds the water in Ashford from Bakewell Time take – 2.5 hours This walk takes in the lovely Peak District village of Ashford in the Water which in itself is worth spending time walking around, as it has plenty of charm and character. Even though I drive through it often on the way to Bakewell, until last year I didn’t know how quaint it was or how far it extended. I discovered its charm when taking part in a Grindleford treasure hunt and spent an early summer evening investigating its nooks and crannies. Mable...
Bakewell via Ashford - Peak District Walks
Mable the Duchess at Chatsworth Time taken 3 hours A few years ago, in a moment of madness I agreed to take part with friends in the Grindleford Gallop, a near marathon of walking (or running if you are really mad!) that takes you throughout the Hope Valley and into Chatsworth's Park. It is a great Peak District event, in fairness, in aid of Grindleford Primary School, but I have never forgiven it for giving me a bruised toe! I also didn’t fully enjoy it as I find walking without a dog, odd. To me, walking should always be...
