The Heart of England/Peak District

The Peak District is a beautiful part of England, with pretty villages and towns such as Bakewell, Eyam, Ashbourne and Ashford in the Water to name a few. There are historic homes such as Chatsworth, Haddon, Hardwick and Eyam Hall to explore.

Fabulous stunning scenery which offers a wide variety of activitiesincluding, walking, rock climbing, cycling, horse riding and paragliding.

The Peak District offers something for everyone to discover, relax and enjoy.

Bakewell

Millers Dale is a beautiful village nestled in the fabulous Peak District, following the course of the River Wye. From the Wriggly Tin you can explore the hills and valleys along the Monsal Trail, experience the breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside, discover tranquillity as you amble along to Water-cum-jolly-dale, or relax as you and your family or friends picnic and play on the banks of the River Wye. This stunning location offers you a holiday full of memories, and will appeal to photographers for the local flora and fauna including rare orchids, there are also exciting ascents for rock climbers at Ravenstor and Chee Dale, including watching the abseiling events from the nearby viaduct. The Monsal Trail has just undergone a major overhaul, all of the 6 tunnels between Buxton(Blackwell Mill) and Bakewell were opened in May 2011, and we now have a perfect car free route for Bikes, Walkers, and Pushchairs along the 6 miles (12 miles return) from the Wriggly Tin to Bakewell and back. The route has opened up more breath taking views lost with the closure of the Railway line, and there are new information points along the track to add even more interest.

The area is full of history for you to discover, Industrial history with the advent of the Railways and the disused Limekilns, and the local cotton mills of Litton Mill and Cressbrook. There is Medieval History at ‘The Catherdral of the Peak’ in Tideswell dating back to 13th Century. We have Castles to explore at Castleton and Bolsover. Eyam with indepth details of the plague transported to here from London in 1665 and contained within the village. Buxton and Matlock are both Victorian Spa Towns.
