This charming 17th-century building was once the home of Annie Wilson, a local woman who acquired the legendary recipe for Bakewell pudding, which she began producing and selling from the property in around 1860. The puddings - a puff pastry base with a layer of sweet strawberry jam, topped with a set mixture of eggs and almonds - are as popular now as they were then.

The mysterious recipe is made by just one baker and still contains a secret ingredient, which has been protected to this day. A variety of pies, pastries, cakes and handmade artisan breads are also freshly made for sale each day - think flavoured sourdoughs, soda bread, and sea salt and rosemary focaccia, to name but a few. Visitors to the shop have plenty to look forward to, as they can peruse shelves of beers, cheeses, jams, chutneys and gifts tucked away in the myriad nooks and crannies. Those who can't make it in person can take advantage of the website's shop and Post a Pudding service, which delivers around the world.

Head upstairs to the 80-seater restaurant to enjoy quality fare from light bites to a range of popular afternoon teas and roast dinners using locally sourced meat. The outdoor courtyard provides an al fresco dining option in warmer months.

A Bakewell Pudding experience offers groups a tour followed by pudding-making and either coffee or a two-course meal
