The Heart of England/Peak District
The Peak District and Derbyshire is a contrast of high rolling moorland, craggy outcrops and picture post card vales and valleys with ‘chocolate box' villages. The whole area is dominated by Britain's first national park; The Peak District National Park which has been catering for visitors for many years. It's easy to get around with a good network of roads and excellent public transport. There are many places of interest including some lovely towns and villages such as Bakewell, Buxton and Ashbourne as well as historical attractions like Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall. To the north of the region is the High Peak, with miles of heather moorland and great country walks and cycling.
Alsop en le Dale
Alsop-en-le-Dale is a tiny Derbyshire village situated 5 miles north of the market town of Ashbourne. The old railway station that used to serve Alsop-en-le-Dale is now a car park on the famous Tissington Trail and the quaint village consists of a church, a hall, a number of farms and cottages. The Tissington Trail, set up by the Peak District National Park is a scenic 13 mile route running north from the outskirts of Ashbourne to Parsley Hay, travelling through some exquisite countryside. The local church is typical of its era and was originally built in Norman times and faced a relatively heavy restoration in the 19th century. Hartington, famous for its Cheese Shop, is only a short drive away and well worth the trip.
