Situated in the heart of England, the Peak District National Park lies at the southern end of the Pennine hills between Sheffield and Manchester. It was the first National Park to be set up in Britain and covers parts of six counties.

The National Park offers many attractions to walkers, climbers and cyclists. Ask for details of walks and places to visit. We have a number of maps of the local area available for guests to use.

Tideswell

Tideswell boasts a magnificent 14th-century church, known locally as 'The Cathedral of the Peak'.

This fine church was funded by the local wool trade and by lead mining as Tideswell was a major centre for the lead-mining industry from medieval times to the nineteenth century.

There are two trails available that will take you around and about Tideswell. They are available from the information point next to Vanilla Kitchen in the village.

Chatsworth

The home of the Duchess of Devonshire is one of the treasure houses of England and the country's finest stately home. Visit the magnificent house and its collection of treasures, the gardens and the world-famous waterworks, stroll around the 1000-acre park or enjoy the working farmyard, adventure playground and stables restaurant.

Don't miss Chatsworth at Christmas when the house is specially decorated with foliage, lights and candles and the garden and waterworks are floodlit every afternoon.

Also visit the gift shops, garden shop and farmshop.

Derbyshire and Lancashire Gliding Club

Named after the iron age enclosure at the south end of the airfield, Camphill has been the home of The Derbyshire and Lancashire Gliding Club since 1935. The airfield was formed from the fields of Camphill Farm.

At the heart of the Peak District, this is an idyllic gliding site in beautiful surroundings.

Ladybower and the Howden and Derwent Dams

Derbyshire's Ladybower reservoir was completed in 1945, providing drinking water for the cities of the north and east Midlands.

It is the largest of a chain of 3 massive reservoirs, with Howden and Derwent Dams lying further up the valley. These two were used by the famous "Dambusters" in their experiments with Barnes Wallis' "bouncing bomb".

When Ladybower was built, it submerged two lovely villages, Derwent and Ashopton, but now the area attracts many walkers and cyclists.

Bicycles are available to hire from the Fairholmes Visitor Centre; ask for details.
