An Outstanding Location: Renowned Cuisine

Stylishly tranquil, fabulously friendly and something a little different.

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. Baslow is the perfect location to discover the beauty of the Peak District and some of the country’s finest stately homes.

Max & Susan Fischer purchased this lovely house in 1988 as a fitting setting for their dream “Restaurant with Rooms”. The standard formal “Country House” approach to the interior was avoided, instead using their personal collection of furniture and pictures to give a homely feel. 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. We have six traditional-styled bedrooms in the Main House which feature lavish fabrics and ornate plasterwork ceilings. The Garden House bedrooms are situated adjacent to Baslow Hall. In contrast to the ‘country house’ styling in the main house, 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, Scottish Razor Clams, Cornish Shellfish and Yorkshire forced Rhubarb. The abundance of herbs and vegetables during the summer months at Baslow Hall and High Ashes Farm in Barlow supplement the Kitchen and create innovative dishes.

Max’s garden attracts as much admiration from our guests as the food, accommodation and friendly staff.

Whether you come to stay overnight or visit us in search of quality food in beautiful surroundings, you will be a most welcome guest.
