Hassop Station

Yesterday we had a rare day off so thought we'd make the most of it and visit a pretty new cafe which opened not far from us.

Situated on the Monsal Trail, this old station building has been transformed inside and out. The beautiful building of The Hassop Station has many old features and with it's mis-matched tables and chairs, a great setting for the delicious food we ate. There is plenty of seating inside and out. I can't wait to experience a summers lunch sat overlooking the scenery of the Monsal Trail.

Alongside the cafe is a bookshop containing a wide selection of fiction, non-fiction and children's books. There is also a small section containing shabby chic gifts. There is also a selection of Christmas decorations and cards available at the moment.

After lunch, we went for a short walk along the Monsal Trail. The pretty colours of the autumn trees made an ideallic setting for an afternoon walk in the sunshine.

The tunnels on the Monsal trail are opening in the Spring too which means you'll be able to walk or cycle from Bakewell right through to Buxton.

If you're ever in the the Derbyshire area, I would definetly recommend a visit.

I'm looking forward to walking through the tunnels when they're open.
