All are within easy driving distance.

Nearby are Tissington Hall, Calke Abbey and Bolsover Castle… such beautiful places to visit. The village of Eyam (known as the plague village) Bakewell (famous for its puddings) and Chesterfield (of crooked spire fame) are also close by.

Also nearby are: the National Tramway Village at Crich, also known as Cardale for the filming of “Peak Practice”; Midland Railway Centre; Peak Rail; Red HouseWorking Carriage Museum; Arkwright’s historic Cromford; and Masson Mills working textile museum, recently given World Heritage status for its importance in British Industrial history.

Alton Towers theme park, Denby Pottery – Royal Crown Derby, Royal Doulton and Wedgwood – are all within reach of the Peak District. Visit enchanting villages: beautiful Dovedale; Monsal Head; Lathkill Dale; the Manifold Valley; or Kinder Scout. There is something for walkers of all abilities. Leave Kinder for the fitter but enjoy the beauty of the High Peak Trail, or the Tissington Trail. Bicycles are available for hire too.
