High Peak Bookstore and Café - A haven for book lovers and coffee enthusiasts in the heart of the Peak District
As my family are over in Leek, our regular jaunts through the breathtaking scenery of the Peak District always call for a mandatory stop at the High Peak Bookstore and Café near Buxton, a tradition my daughter and I hold dear.
Nestled conveniently within reach of Buxton, Ashbourne, Bakewell, and Matlock this hidden gem is perfectly positioned to cater to the diverse attractions of the Peak District and the Staffordshire Moorlands.
The bookstore is our cherished haven, open throughout the week:
Monday to Saturday: 9.30am to 5.30pm
Sunday: 10.30am to 5pm
Stepping into High Peak Bookstore and Café is akin to entering a world of woodland charm. The diverse collection of books spans across various genres and age groups, all reasonably priced, and some even boasting tempting discounts. The children's section, exuding warmth and comfort, is a haven for young book lovers, offering everything from sturdy board books to the latest teenage reads.
In addition to its literary treasures, the store entices visitors with an array of exquisite gift items, ranging from elegant stationery to tasteful coasters, mugs, and delightful ornaments, ensuring a memorable shopping experience for every guest.
The highlight of our visit, particularly for my daughter, was the café. The tantalising aroma of freshly brewed teas and coffees greeted us, accompanied by an irresistible selection of homemade delicacies. The Derbyshire oatcake and the mouthwatering homemade quiche left an indelible mark on our taste buds, making this café a must-visit for anyone exploring the area.
