Peak District, the oldest national park in the UK

If so much walking makes you hungry, there is no better place in the surroundings than the Packhorse Inn, a cozy inn with low wooden ceilings and a favorite place for hikers and locals. Its food will comfort you while you can try local products and beers in the warmth of its fireplace. We recommend booking in advance to secure a table, especially if you want to go for dinner.


Bakewell is known as the ‘former capital of the Picos‘and is the largest town within the Peak District, situated on the River Wye. One of its biggest claims is a sweet created in these lands called ‘Bakewell pudding‘. Is a puff pastry with a layer of sifted jam, egg filling and almond paste. They say that this dessert was born from a mistake made by a cook when preparing a jam cake in 1820. The place where many buy them is The Old Original Bakewell Pudding ShopHere they continue to make this dessert in an artisanal way and with the recipe that they claim to be secret.

On the outskirts of town is the Thornbridge craft brewery, where you can take a tour to see how they make some of their most famous and awarded beers such as Jaipur, an Indian pale ale, which was first served during a summer party with friends in 2005 when the brewery was starting up and is now sold in more than 30 countries.
