Bakewell Winter Wonderland has left visitors feeling let down and angry after they were welcomed by a run-down ‘shambles’.

Customers took to social media to blast the Bakewell Winter Wonderland after paying up to £7 each for tickets as well as an extra £5 for parking.

But the disappointed punters were greeted with a showground field covered in mud and an incomplete Santa’s grotto when it opened on Friday.

Disgruntled customers voiced their opinions on Facebook.

Ali Bow wrote: “It was just like a scene from Gavin and Stacey. There was nothing Christmassy about it.”

We were unable to contact the organisers for their comments on Sunday.
