Day out to Bakewell

So the other day me and my husband had the day off together and instead of our normal Derby or Birmingham trip where we always end up spending too much money we opted for a trip to Bakewell in out beloved VW Camper van 'Rhubarb'. I'm glad we did, as I don't know if it's just me, but whenever I've had a day shopping I always come back with, not only a much emptier bank account, but a headache!
It was nice to go somewhere away from the busyness of a shopping centre!

Just a picture I took, as I liked the texture and colour combination. I also find signs very interesting

Where ever we go we seem to manage to track down awesome sweets shops! The one here was called sugar cane. We spent nearly £6 on a pick and mix, and yes it was worth it!

Actually spent a long time watching the ducks on the river. I love the dude in the middle with the teddy-boy do! Though I have to say we didn't trust these ones, their beady eyes had a very suspicious look to them!

We've been to Bakewell a few times, and always come back to this courtyard. It just looks so pretty! Bunting never fails to impress.

Also,we had a walk round some open studios there, and I was very jealous of the artists beavering away in their studios! I wish I had enough money for a studio space!

So just thought I'd share these few choice images with you. 


  1. Lovely photos, I especially like the sweets!! :) Oh and what a lovely camper you have!!


  2. Thanks! Yes we love it so much! :)

  3. I have only been to Bakewell once but I never found this little courtyard. Seeing the 'Lavender Saloon' sign makes me want to find it!
