The Heart of England / Peak District / Peak District/Derbyshire region
The Peak District provides opportunities for many types of outdoor activity. An extensive network of public footpaths and numerous long-distance trails (over 3000 km in total), as well as large open-access areas, are available for hillwalking and hiking. Bridleways are commonly used by mountain bikers, as well as horse riders. Some of the long-distance trails, such as the Tissington Trail, re-use former railway lines; they are much used by walkers, horse riders and cyclists. The Park authorities run cycle hire centres at Ashbourne, Parsley Hay and Ladybower Reservoir. Wheelchair access is possible at several places on the former railway trails, and cycle hire centres offer vehicles adapted to wheelchair users. There is a programme to make footpaths more accessible to less-agile walkers by replacing climbing stiles with walkers' gates.
The many gritstone outcrops, such as Stanage and the Roaches, are recognised as some of the finest rock climbing sites in the world (see: rock climbing in the Peak District). The Peak limestone also provides many testing climbs. Some of the area's large reservoirs (for example, Carsington Water) have become centres for water sports, including sailing, fishing and canoeing, in this most landlocked part of the UK.
The Bakewell / Birchover area
Birchover is in a secluded position on the edge of the village of Birchover in the Peak District National Park, not far from the lovely market town of Bakewell. Just a stroll from the village along a quiet country lane, it commands splendid views over rolling countryside. With bridle ways going right past the door, there is direct access to the local countryside. A short drive away are the stately homes of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall and famous beauty spots including Dove Dale, Lathkill Dale and Monsal Dale.

This accommodation is an excellent find. It is located in the quiet village of Birchover with one pub that plays live music and a gastro pub. There are some great walks (and 'climbs' amongst the druid rocks) but a car is advised if you want to venture outside of the village. The accommodation itself is set in grounds shared with the next barn conversion and has tennis courts which was a bonus for us. The Hayloft has everything you would need, it is very clean, bright and airey and the kitchen is well stocked with utensils and other things you might forget to pack like kitchen roll and washing up liquid.
Booking the Hayloft was straightforward and the people that own and manage the Hayloft were very friendly and helpful.
Thank you for a wonderful stay.
