The Heart of England/Peak District
The Peak District and Derbyshire is a contrast of high rolling moorland, craggy outcrops and picture post card vales and valleys with ‘chocolate box' villages. The whole area is dominated by Britain's first national park; The Peak District National Park which has been catering for visitors for many years. It's easy to get around with a good network of roads and excellent public transport. There are many places of interest including some lovely towns and villages such as Bakewell, Buxton and Ashbourne as well as historical attractions like Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall. To the north of the region is the High Peak, with miles of heather moorland and great country walks and cycling.
Hardwick Cottage lies only one mile from the village of Ashover, famous for having been voted Britain's best village in 2005. Ashover boasts a historic pub, the Crispin Inn and a visit to the ‘Ashover Rock' or ‘The Fabrick' (a gritstone boulder and locally renowned viewpoint) is well worth a visit for the excellent views it provides over Chesterfield and South Yorkshire. Also nearby is the beautiful village of Matlock Bath, one of the most scenic villages in the whole of Derbyshire. Set within a steep-sided limestone gorge and once a 19th century spa town, this unique village has plenty to offer the visitor. From a historic railway station to Georgian and Victorian buildings, tea shops, museums and much more, there is a lot to get excited about in this breathtaking village and it is well – worth a visit all year round. The Chatsworth. Haddon and Hardwick Halls are also close by to Ashover, making it an excellent destination for exploring the best of what the Peak District has to offer.
