Derby's Hidden Gems

3. Hackwood Farm

From the outside it’s just a typical red-brick farm building, with a few weeds in the yard and a sleepy air about the place. Step inside, and you are suddenly transported to a bustling shop and café (external link).

The scent of baking pies fills the air, fairy lights twinkle from the rafters, and jars of preserves glow on the shelves. Treat yourself to a soft warm scone and a pot of fresh loose-leaf tea. Or curl up by the stove with a comforting cooked breakfast, and buy some locally-sourced meat from the butchers to take home too.

The quiet and peaceful neighbourhood of Darley Abbey in the vicinity of The Abbey Pub and Brick Square. Such a lovely walk to the river and the Darley Mills complex. I have always loved this quiet yet scenic corner just to the north of Darley Abbey Park.

I went through the arch of Jimmy’s on St James st. There are some fantastic buildings behind. I don’t know who owns them but a lot of people would not know they are there
