Things To Do
The Rutland Arms Hotel is situated in stunning scenery amidst The Peak District National Park. Chatsworth House is a must-visit destination, being situated just three and a half miles from Bakewell. Chatsworth is currently the seat of the Dukes of Devonshire; in fact the House itself has been the home of the Cavendish family since 1549. Chatsworth House is famous (amongst many other things) for its beautiful garden that is carefully sculptured and maintained three hundred and sixty five days a year. Chatsworth is the home of a number of unique collections of paintings, drawings, sculpture (particularly neoclassical pieces), furniture and books. It has been voted the country’s favourite country house many times over.
RUTLAND ARMS ANTIQUES CENTRE
Situated in the heart of Bakewell and part of The Rutland Arms Hotel, this Georgian setting was once a stable block built by The Duke of Rutland in 1800.
Having been painstakingly restored to its former glory the premises is now an ideal setting for this unique Antiques Centre. An airy, bright and spacious feel along contemporary lines, the Rutland Arms Antiques Centre aims to attract both established buyers and trade but also appeal to a younger generation of collectors too. Located over two floors, we have a variety of reputable dealers from all around the UK who have been trading for many years and offer a wide range of expertise, with antiques to suit all interests and budgets.
