Hassop Station

Hassop Bakewell Derbyshire DE45 1NW

This handsome stone former railway station is brilliantly placed by the fabulous Monsal Trail (and there's bike hire next door), so why not grab a hearty breakfast here before striking out? The choice is good, ranging from bagels to the Full English, and if you're not the cycling kind you can just kick back with a wholesome lunch (Hancock's Pork Pie with Ibbotson's Pickled Onions is a personal fave). Lounge on the lovely sun terrace on a good day - or if it's nippy, inside the elegant old building. Slouch with the papers all day if you want, no one seems to mind. And there's a brilliant bookshop (lots of train-related stuff and a great cookery book section), gifts and crafts as well as work for sale by local artists. A really special spot.
