AboutAn attractive village at the northern end of Chatsworth Park surrounded by magnificent countryside.
Set beneath its' gritstone edge, Baslow is an attractive place with some very fine houses. The Cavendish Hotel and Baslow Hall provide some of the very finest hotel accommodation in the Peak. Baslow is made up of 5 "Ends", Far, Nether, Bridge, West and Over Ends. The leafy Goose Green is at Nether End, where a narrow packhorse bridge leads the way to Chatsworth House past pretty thatched cottages. At Bridge End the graceful 17th century bridge has a small tollhouse and the nearby church of St Anne is on the east bank of the river Derwent. The unusual clock on the church has VICTORIA 1897 instead of numbers and inside can be seen the whip used to clear the church of dogs. The adjoining hamlet of Bubnell, over the river to the west has a fine 17th century hall.
Things to do; Some excellent walking routes originate from Baslow; up to the Edge and Wellington's Monument or through the parkland to Chatsworth House, which is an easy stroll away from Baslow. The Derwent Valley Heritage Trail runs through the village. There are a good choice of eating and drinking places, some exclusive shopping and a small art gallery.
