Peak District bakery where the cakes are ‘worth every penny’ up for sale

A thriving business that has proved popular with locals and customers from afar is up for sale in the Peak District. Peveril Stores sits in the shadow of the castle it is named after in the Peak District village of Castleton.

The local village shop and bakery is known for its good quality baked goods. The shop also has a deli counter with a wide range of cheeses, cold meats and olives.

Other products on offer include a selection of fine wines, a wide range of local craft beers and several everyday items. The shop, which is also the local newsagent, also boasts a range of chocolates, fudge and lots of other sweet treats.

Recent reviews of the bakery have all been positive. One customer said: “Thankfully, I don’t live too close to this shop because I’d probably spend a lot of money in there and rapidly gain weight. Definitely hands down the best cheese-topped Branston pickle pork pie I’ve eaten and I can’t wait to go back for more.”

Another added: “Make a point of calling here. OK, the prices of bakery goods are tourist prices but wow that pork pie was worth every penny. Haven’t had one of those since I lived in Yorkshire. Delicious. A very pleasant lady served us and we had a bit of a laugh. Will definitely go again.”
