Visit our Bridal Boutique
Alexandra Anne is a very special bridal boutique, situated in a charming barn on the Chatsworth Estate near Bakewell in Derbyshire. We have the stunning Chatsworth House right on our doorstep, plus the world of temptation on offer at the Chatsworth Farm Shop and Cafe only a five minute walk away. Let us know if you're making a day of it from Sheffield, Manchester or Nottingham, and we can offer lots of local recommendations! You can also find handy driving directions below for your journey into the Peak District. You lucky thing.
Wanting to pay us a visit after work? We're open until 9pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Plenty of parking right outside, too.

Directions from Manchester
Our bridal boutique is only a 1 hour and 15 minute drive (40 miles) from Manchester city centre. Even closer if you're coming from Stockport or Macclesfield.
From Manchester, set off eastbound on the M67 towards Barnsley and Sheffield, then join up with the A57 at the Hattersley roundabout. After 1.5 miles, take the A6016 and continue onto the A624.
Just before you reach the charmingly-named Chapel-en-le-Frith, cut across to the A6 bound for Buxton. After a couple of miles, turn left onto the A623 and enjoy the scenic ride across the Peaks to the village of Baslow. Pass through Baslow and take the Bakewell Road until you see the turn-off on your right for Pilsley.
Take care up the single-track lane to Pilsley, and keep your eyes peeled for the first entrance on your right as you arrive into the village. Turn in there, and you'll find plenty of car parking right outside the boutique.
Directions from Sheffield or Chesterfield
We're only 15 miles from central Sheffield, so you can be with us in around 40 minutes by car.
Start by heading out of Sheffield on the Ecclesall Road (A625), which takes you all the way into the Peak District. When you reach Calver, turn left onto the A623 and follow it to Baslow.
(If you're visiting from Chesterfield, just take the Chatsworth Road / A619 all the way to Baslow.)
Just after Rowley's Village Pub, turn right at the roundabout and follow the Bakewell Road for a few minutes until you see the turn-off on your right for Pilsley. Head up the single-track lane, then take the first entrance on your right in Pilsley to reach the car park and our boutique.
Directions from Nottingham
It's less than an hour to our bridal shop from Nottingham.
Head north-west on the A610 to join the M1 northbound. At junction 29, leave the motorway and follow the A617 to Chesterfield. When you reach Chesterfield, stay on the A617 for the first roundabout, then at the next one take the A619 (Chatsworth Road) straight through to Baslow.
After you've passed the Cavendish Hotel, bear left at the roundabout. Continue straight on the Bakewell Road (B6012) then watch out for the turn-off for Pilsley on your right. Drive up the hill to the village and take the first entrance on the right. We're just beyond the car park.
