Bakewell - Edensor - Chatsworth Walking Route


This walk in Bakewell takes you over the Monsal Trail, through some woods and to the picturesque village of Edensor, ending in the gem of the Derbyshire countryside, Chatsworth House. There are some glorious views of the house and the Hunting Tower along this walk, as well as the chance to have a cup of tea and some cake in the traditional tearooms at Edensor, the closest village to Chatsworth itself.

There are two routes, one is 6 miles and one is slightly longer at 8 miles. The longer walk takes you a more scenic route on the way back from Chatsworth, as to include a walk along the River Derwent.  This route also includes places of interest such as a ruined corn mill and an Iron Age fort, which comes with another wonderful viewpoint.

This is a brilliant walk to do if you’re staying in Bakewell, or you’d like to combine visiting both Bakewell and the delights of Chatsworth.

Please see the PDF below for a detailed description, small map and directions of the route. Although this is not a challenging walk, please do make sure to bring a map and compass as well as good walking boots for your trip.
