The Heart of England / Peak District / Peak District/Derbyshire region
The Peak District National Park covers 500 square miles across several counties and attracts visitors from around the world. Derbyshire is famous for its natural beauty from peaks and dales to picturesque villages. It really does have something for everyone – for the more energetic there is fantastic walking, sailing and climbing. It has more historic houses than you can shake a stick at – Chatsworth House (7 miles from here), Hardwick Hall (6 miles away) and Bolsover Castle to name just a few. Explore caves and caverns, visit a theme park, soar skywards in a cable car or ride on a vintage tram. Or why not simply wander around our many pretty towns and villages. Our visitors often comment on how centrally located our cottages are for reaching the many attractions of Derbyshire and the Peak District so it's no wonder many of them come back time and time again.
The Chesterfield / Ashover area
Alton is a small and welcoming farming village of around thirty stone cottages. A short stroll of less than half a mile takes you to the Fabrick Rock – also known as the Ashover Rock. This is 299 metres above sea level and, on clear days, offers spectacular views of Derbyshire and across five other counties: Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Staffordshire. Look for the stone steps carved into the hillside next to it and follow the public footpath to Ashover. Why not take a picnic and just enjoy the views.
If you like horse-riding or would you like to learn please visit Alton Riding School which is a few hundred metres from the cottages.
Alton is too small for a pub or a shop but several can be found in Ashover a mile away by road but closer if you go on foot cross-country following one of several footpaths down the hill. Ashover is frequently described as one of the prettiest villages in Derbyshire and it hosts a famous traditional country show on the 2nd Wednesday in August every year.
Chesterfield is 5 miles from here and is famous for its outdoor market and for the ‘Crooked Spire’ church of St Mary and All Saints, built in the 13th century. Please visit our website to discover more about local attractions and events.
