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.
Jim's Cottage is within a short drive of the spa town of Buxton and a little further is the picturesque town of Bakewell with its weekly traditional market. From the cottage Mam Tor and Back Tor can be easily reached and form part of the beautiful Edale Valley, a wide expanse of green rolling hills which lies just to the south of the great gritstone and peat mass of Kinder Scout. The village lies in a beautiful setting below Kinder Scout, which is the start of the Pennine Way, England's first and most famous long-distance footpath. It is also served by the railway which plays a great part in making Edale accessible to explore the surrounding countryside. A truly wonderful location for the outdoor enthusiasts and perfect for those who enjoy horse riding and pony trekking with Ladybooth Equestrian Centre less than 2 miles away.
