The Rutland Arms Hotel dates back to 1804 and is set in the majestic Peak District National Park in the picturesque town of Bakewell. The Rutland Arms has played host to several celebrated guests in its long history. Jane Austen stayed in 1811 using her room as a background for two scenes in her book ‘Pride and Prejudice’. In 1850 Charles Dickens used the hotel for a scene in his short story ‘The Warilows of Welland’. Turner, Byron and Coleridge also stayed whilst visiting Chatsworth. The Rutland also boasts the creation of the world famous Bakewell pudding.
Bakewell is both an exciting place to visit and relaxing market town to explore, and it is full of history and sits in a stunning countryside setting. The Breathtaking scenery is magnificent, a true walkers paradise.
