The great outdoors
The area offers some of the best climbing in the country and although walking and cycling are also favourite pastimes for locals and visitors to the Peak District, there is so much more on offer.
We are ideally positioned for sampling an abundance of easily accessible options to suit every age and interest…
- cycle, stroll, walk, hike or even run through our beautiful countryside and pretty villages on traffic free footpaths
- see the landscape from a different perspective and meander on horseback across a variety of designated horse-riding trails
- our Peak District rivers and reservoirs are great for water sports including kayaking, canoeing, sailing and windsurfing
- perfect for some leisurely fishing or simply a picnic by the river
- take a birds-eye view of the world with a helicopter flight that follows the famous Dambuster’s Run, training site of the World War ll Lancaster Bombers
- drift through the skies on a more leisurely hot air balloon ride
Our culture is defined by our heritage and we are proud to showcase ours to you…
We are spoilt for choice in terms of what to include in our programme as we have some of our country’s finest places, artefacts and attractions that authentically represent our nation, culture and history and all right here on our doorstep.
Historic houses and stately homes….
- Haddon Hall, a fortified medieval house set in beautiful Elizabethan terraced gardens
- Chatsworth House, the jewel in our crown and famously linked to British aristocracy and home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire
