Baslow is without doubt one of the most sought after of the Peak District villages given its proximity to Chatsworth House and Park. It benefits from good local amenities including a shop, church, village hall, playing fields, public houses, primary school, doctor’s surgery and the Chatsworth owned Cavendish Hotel and the Michelin starred Fischer’s Baslow Hall Hotel and Restaurant. More extensive facilities are to be found in the nearby market town of Bakewell whilst Sheffield and Chesterfield are within an easy drive. Being in the Peak District National Park means there is a wide array of outdoor activities and pursuits including climbing, cycling, fishing and walking to name but a few. There are many historical places of interest nearby including Chatsworth and Haddon Hall.
