The Heart of England/Peak District
The Peak District & Derbyshire straddle the border between the northern highland parts of Britain and the southern lowland counties.
Travelling north from the rolling farmland and the National Forest in the south of the county, you first reach the limestone plateau. Here, hedges and fields give way to drystone walls and deeply incised, verdant river valleys and dales. This is the White Peak.
Continuing north brings you to the Edges, the start of high gritstone moorland which sits in an arc across the top of the limestone. This is the Dark Peak, a wild and barren landscape punctuated by weathered tors towering over heather moorland. It is an area which changes dramatically with local weather and light conditions, but one which has a powerful, stark beauty.
Across this varied landscape lies the Peak District National Park, Britain's first created National Park. There are few areas in this country where you can see such varied landscape within just a few miles.
The local town of Whaley Bridge has a range of local amenities (supermarket/post office/ butchers/train station/cycle shop) and a number of cafes, pubs and restaurants. There is also a canal basin with more walks and pleasure boat day trips.
The spa town of Buxton is also a short drive away where you can enjoy a show at Buxton Opera House, a visit to the picturesque Pavilion Gardens or a trip to Poole's Cavern. Buxton also boasts a variety of shops, cafes. Pubs and restaurants.
Other nearby attractions are Bakewell, where you can treat yourself to a pudding. Castleton, a picturesque village with stunning walks and scenery, caves to visit and the dramatic Winnat's Pass as a backdrop. The famous Chatsworth House and Park and Haddon Hall are also in the local area and are well worth a visit.

"A heavenly place to relax and rewind"
We discovered Toll Barn Cottage in spring 2010, when it had just opened for self catering a few weeks ago. On arrival we fell utterly and completely in love with it, having revisited every year since … More

"Nice place, but metres from a fast A road."
Well kept, spacious and smart cottage, but misleading photos: sadly the huge French doors are literally 3 metres from a speeding A road. Not a problem in winter, as the double glazing is sound-proofing, but would be seriously disappointing in warmer months.
Please note that there is a dry stone wall and gate (and then a small lay by) separating the property from the road. The road is busy-ish at peak times, but does quieten down a bit during the day.
