Excellent range of drinks and cakes / pastries, this place has really come on in the last few years and is a really comfortable place to have a rest after walking the Monsal trail. Good gift shop and book shop there also.

It wants someone like me to come show them what they are doing wrong which is a bit of a long list. It has so much lost potential. But you go visit it, dear reader, and tell me what you think. Undoubtedly you may not mind the slow service and the uncleared tables and the lack of personable staff.....

Thank Marilyn N

Hi again Marilyn. I see your previous Tripadvisor incarnation was 'hotelier1Bakewell ' of 'Haddon House Farm B&B'.
'Dear reader' please be aware that we certainly do not want 'someone like that' to come and show us what we are doing wrong. Heaven forbid.
Please see our other reviews (and Marilyn's!), visit us, and join the thousands of customers who come back time after time to enjoy our lovely licensed cafe, cycle hire, bookshop, gift shop, kids play houses, cycle repair, sun terrace, covered outdoor seating, large car park, level access, traffic free trail, dog tethers, wifi, function room, ice cream kiosk, historic architecture and glorious surroundings.
It is run by our large team of courteous and attentive staff, talented chefs, dedicated management, and totally committed family owners.
If only it had potential...............

Great spot. It was cold when went but lovely spot with little plays houses for the kids. Even managed to get the kids to go for a walk along the Monsal Trail. Super Café with book shop and art work for sale. Park in short stay car park if only going to café for a hours or so.

Our first visit to the Hassop Station - what a fantastic renovation of an old building, very tastefully done given its use now.It was very busy but with good reason, great atmosphere, friendly staff and lovely surroundings. We only dropped in for a coffee whilst walking the Monsal trail but the food looked great and perhaps if we visit again we will make sure we stop for a bite to eat.

Great old station, lovely setting from here you can hire a bike and ride the Monsal Trail which used to be a lovely tranquil pedestrian walk until somebody started hiring bikes out!!??
