The Rutland Arms Hotel dates back over 200 years to 1804. Located in Bakewell and set in the beautiful Peak District National. As it is located on the outskirts of the famous Chatsworth estate the hotel is perfectly located for anyone wanting to explore the local area and indeed the Peak District National Park and Bakewell. The Rutland Arms Kitchens, as it is claimed by the hotel, could well be the place where the famous Bakewell Pudding was invented.
Some of the rooms have four poster beds along with a few family rooms so make it an ideal location for a romantic time with a loved one or a family holiday. It is thought that that Jane Austin stayed in one of the rooms while she wrote her most famous book, Pride and Prejudice.
Within the Peak District and very close to the hotel you can find lots of wonderful historic sites, from Mesolithic artefacts and caves, stone circles and Iron Age forts. Bakewell itself has an interesting history with the five arch bridge that crosses the river Wye dating as far back as the 13th century. You should also visit Chatsworth House, which has amazing history and has been passed down through 16 generations of the Cavendish family and is the current seat of Duke of Devonshire.
