The Heart of England/Peak District
The stunning and diverse landscapes of The Peak District National Park offer something special to all visitors. It could be a gentle stroll by a river watching the wildlife, or a picturesque village to enjoy tea and homemade cake. However, this is serious walking country and offers walks to challenge the most energetic visitor. You may have seen Julia Bradbury or Ben Fogle on TV who know the area well.
Other outdoor activities including cycling, horse riding, fishing, water sports, golf and climbing.
Stately Homes include Chatsworth House (home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire), Hardwick Hall (built by Bess of Hardwick), Haddon Hall (home of Lord Edward Manners) and Tissington Hall (home of Sir Richard Fitzherbert). Yes, Chatsworth, Haddon and Tissington are family homes and it is not unusual to meet family members. You may have seen these places in movies including The Duchess, The Other Boleyn Girl, Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice and the Deathly Hallows.
Come and find out about our Well Dressings, try the original Bakewell Pudding, sample some local beers (we have 30 micro-breweries), see Chesterfield’s famous Crooked Spire, take a tram at Crich Tramway Village, visit World Heritage Mills, see Britain’s only Ice Age Engravings at Creswell Crags or just relax and enjoy the fantastic views.
Chesterfield is Derbyshire’s largest town, famous for its Crooked Spire. Visit the Chesterfield Museum to find out why the spire is twisted. The oldest part of the town, The Shambles, dates back to medieval times and has an interesting mix of shops and cafes. Shoppers love Chesterfield’s outdoor markets (including a Flea Market and a Farmers’ Market) and the traditional Market Hall.
Other nearby places of interest include Barrow Hill Roundhouse Railway Centre and the Chesterfield Canal where you can take a trip on a narrowboat.
The cottage is located in the hamlet of Overgreen, on the eastern edge of The Peak District. This is a quiet agricultural area. There are walks from the door through the picturesque Linacre Valley with its woods and 3 reservoirs. A very short walk in the other direction takes you to The Gate Inn pub/restaurant.
