About this location

The Staffordshire region

The ultimate in "year-round" appeal, the Peak District offers countryside, picturesque villages and magnificent scenery. It touches upon six counties and encloses 555 square miles of open moorland, flowing rivers, and wooded dales.


Situated on the western edge of the Peak District National Park, the small and pretty hamlet of Bradnop is close to the town of Leek - a settlement with plenty of antique shops and excellent eateries - and is within easy driving distance of the market towns of Buxton and Ashbourne. Also nearby is the superb walking routes of Dovedale, the beautiful Manifold Valley, and the popular Manifold Cycle Track, all of which are within easy driving distance. There are numerous pretty villages to explore in the surrounding area, many of which boast good pubs. Alton Towers Theme Park is less than 15 minutes drive away, making this a wonderfully diverse location for all the family.
