Whilst I love living in a city, sometimes it’s a relief to just leave the hustle and bustle behind and go somewhere with a quieter, slower pace of life. This past weekend, we rolled into the gorgeous little market town of Bakewell, nestled in the midst of the Derbyshire Dales, on the banks of the river Wye.IMG_1157 Bakewell centre church Bakewell Bakewell bridge riverOne day when I’m an old lady, I would love to come and live somewhere like this. Fine stone buildings, lots of cute streets to potter around, and if baked goods are your thing, there are plenty of little bakeries and tea shops to visit.IMG_1144The Lavender Tea Rooms BakewellHebden Court Bakewell Of course, we had to have a little nibble or two to eat and drink.IMG_1129 IMG_1132 IMG_1140I also got tempted by a few little homeware delights in a cute shop called The Little Ducks that I just wasn’t able to leave behind – a sweet fabric doorstop in the shape of a dog and an adorable sheep mat (if you’ve read my Guilty Pleasures post, you’ll know I have a bit of a thing for sheep!).
