The Heart of England/Peak District
The ultimate in “year-round” appeal, the Peak District offers countryside, picturesque villages and magnificent scenery. It touches upon six counties and encloses 555 square miles of open moorland, flowing rivers, and wooded dales.
Set in lush, green surroundings, the lovely village of Parwich has a great number of local amenities. With a traditional country pub set on the village green, a church, village hall and playground situated amidst pretty cottages and rolling hills, this little town is a wonderful getaway for anyone who yearns for peace and quiet. Dating from Saxon times, the village is steeped in history with the remains of a Roman farm at nearby Roystone Grange. There is plenty to do in the local area, such as walking the Manifold Trail which follows the old Leek to Manifold light railway. There is also the award winning village of Alstonefield to visit and within seven miles are great facilities for horse riding, cycling, sailing and golfing. Alton Towers is also close by, as are Chatsworth House, Kedleston and Sudbury Halls.
