Hassop Station Cafe is on the Monsal Trail in Bakewell, DE45 1NW and is a really lovely family-friendly place to grab a bite to eat. Fancy a pushchair friendly walk or hiring a bike? The paths are flat into Bakewell from Hassop Station Cafe, and there is cycle hire available. Child-friendly place to eat: Hassop Station Cafe, Bakewell
We went to Hassop Station Cafe years ago when Eric was just a baby and I was very fond it. I remember it being lovely and cosy, great food and good for kids. It wasn’t until Hannah posted these photos in our community group that I realised we haven’t been back since, and totally should!

Hannah posted in this community group… “I just want to recommend Hassop Station Cafe. You can hire bikes or just walk along the Monsal trail to Bakewell from there. The cafe is really kid friendly. It has loads of toys and playhouses outside as well as a climbing frame. Kids menu is decent and the chips and burgers are really yummy!!”
Hassop Station Cafe is in an old railway station. There are inside and outside areas to sit, a childrens play area, Wendy houses and it is dog friendly. There’s a cosy seating area or large tables with a variety of options of where to sit. The food is homemade, fresh and locally sourced. See menu here.
It’s free car parking for cafe customers or a large pay and display is available next to the cafe. There’s a book shop and gift shop at Hassop Station Cafe.
The quickest way to get there by public transport would be to walk from Bakewell (218 bus from Sheffield) or get off from the 218 at Higgenholes for a 15 minute walk to Hassop Station Cafe.
Family friendly walk
The Monsal trail is a great walk in the countryside for families with pushchairs as it is completely flat. It takes only 15 minutes to walk from Bakewell to Hassop Station Cafe so makes a nice, quick stroll with toddlers.
The Monsal trail is a traffic free route and is 8.5 miles long; so you can keep walking for as long as you like!
Once in Bakewell, you could go shopping! The village has so many lovely shops, especially gift and charity shops. Feed the ducks and walk down to the park which has a lovely playground. Find more things to do in Bakewell here.
Thank you for your recommendation Hannah!
