Baslow Hall stands at the top of a winding chestnut-tree-lined driveway on the edge of the picturesque village of Baslow. Chatsworth Estate is within walking distance and the old market town of Bakewell only four miles away. Max & Susan Fischer purchased this lovely house in 1988 as a fitting setting for their dream “Restaurant with Rooms”. We endeavour to create an atmosphere of comfort and character where our guests can relax and be pampered, enjoy good food and wine, and return to their daily lives refreshed. Our eleven bedrooms are individually styled. The emphasis is on comfort with good beds, quality Egyptian cotton bedding, fluffy white towels, robes and luxurious toiletries. There are six traditional-styled bedrooms in the Main House. In contrast, the five Garden House bedrooms are of a more contemporary styling. Head Chef Rupert Rowley’s cooking is always evolving. He combines classic favourites with more modern combinations and relies heavily on British produce in season including Derbyshire Lamb, Cornish Shellfish and Yorkshire forced Rhubarb. The abundance of herbs and vegetables during the summer months at Baslow Hall supplement the Kitchen. Max’s garden attracts as much admiration from our guests as the food, accommodation and friendly staff. Whether you visit in search of memorable food or as an overnight guest you will be made to feel most welcome.
