Monsal Head Hotel

British in Bakewell

At the dramatic viewpoint of Monsal Head, its namesake hotel serves real ales and brilliant British cuisine, such as Cheshire cheese and horseradish soufflé, braised Derbyshire beef with smoked-garlic mash, and blackberry crumble with spiced vanilla custard and crystallised stinging nettle leaves. Book ahead to stay in its seven simple but comfortable rooms (doubles including breakfast from £110).
