About the location

Apart from the endless miles of walking and hiking amongst the wonderful scenery of the Peak District National Park (UK`s oldest National Park) there is so much more. You can enjoy visiting some fascinating historical houses and sites, stopping off at the many charming villages, pubs (trying locally produced ales) restaurants and eateries. Plenty of home baking available at the many tea shops too, after which you may wish to shed some of those calories and get active. In which case there is plenty to do. Pursuits range from cycling, rock climbing (which attracts climbers from around the world) cycling either of the two excellent cycle trails, caving, fly fishing for rainbow trout (available via day tickets) horse riding, paragliding, and sailing on nearby reservoirs. Particularly of interest may be the following, most of which are within walking distance but equally just a short drive away :-

Two excellent cycling/walking trails on old disused railway lines (1 within a mile)

Chatsworth House - one of Englands finest country houses (excellent Farm shop)

Haddon Hall - One of the most romantic fortified Manor Houses in England (setting for filming of BBC`s Jane Eyre).

Monsal Head Viaduct - Spectacular views. (within half an hours walk)

Lathkill Dale - Nature reserve.

Bakewell Market Town - (under 2 miles)
