Residential Home - The Old Vicarage

A brief history of The Old Vicarage, Bakewell

The Old Vicarage is a majestic and substantial Victorian building yet enjoys the warmth and atmosphere of an established family home.

The Old Vicarage has been sensitively and professionally furnished and equipped for the specific needs of the older resident. Care and support is available 24 hours a day.  Our residents are treated with respect and dignity, to make sure that everyone feels part of the family.



The Old Vicarage is situated right in the heart of the Peak District in Bakewell, Derbyshire.  It’s acres of glorious gardens were originally designed by Joseph Paxton; and from many parts of the property, breathtaking views extend across Bakewell to the Chatsworth Estate and beyond.

Visiting Times

The Old Vicarage is the first ‘home away from home’ for many of our residents so we understand the importance of privacy and personal space.  The freedom to come and go at will, and have family and friends visit whenever desired, is entrenched in our philosophy.

For security  and fire safety reasons visitors must sign the visitor’s book on each occasion.
