The Old Stable conversion is a 200-year old building, each room featuring exposed beams and stonework, while the building itself has many period features. There is a selection of double, family, twin and four-poster rooms, one with a free-standing bath some with walk-in wet rooms. All rooms have flat-screen TVs with Sky TV with Sports and Movie channels. The food served is traditional British and European, and alongside the seasonal menu are daily specials, complemented by local cask brewers Peak Ales and Bakewell’s own Thornbridge Brewery, wines and continental beers.
