The Heart of England / Peak District / Peak District/Derbyshire region
The Peak District National Park is the oldest in England and contains some of the best countryside and walking in England. From limestone crags and gorges to lovely open valleys and riverside walks there is something for everyone. In the summer it can be warm and sunny, but it is England so do expect rain and in the winter even snow. Places of interest include Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Tideswell's Cathedral in the Peak, Chesterfield's 'Crooked Spire' as well as Crich Tramway Village and the Plague Town of Eyam.
The Litton Mill area
Litton Mill is in Miller's Dale in the heart of the Peak District National Park. Fabulous walking includes river walks along the River Wye, walking and cycling on the disused railway line above Riverside House on the Monsal Trail (the tunnels are now open and there is bike hire along the route - would thoroughly recommend this - we even hired the electric bikes!), walking the dales and limestone gorges nearby as well as wildlife and wildflowers aplenty. There are plenty of lovely local pubs serving traditional English beers and food.
Nearby is the historic Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall (both used as film sets for period dramas), the market town of Bakewell (famous for Bakewell puddings) and the spa town of Buxton. Accessible within one hours drive is Sheffield and its city shopping facilities, within 40 mins drive is Chesterfield with its market and shops and closer to home Tideswell with its famous cathedral and lovely deli, cafe and pubs.
For more adventurous guests there is rock climbing, fishing (not at the house), hang gliding, horse riding, caving and golf all nearby as well as harder graded walking from Hathersage and Edale.
Every June and July the area welcome the famous well dressing festivals where locals decorate the wells with fresh flowers designs. In Tideswell wakes week there is a carnival and midnight procession (around third week in June).
There are farmer's markets in Buxton, Bakewell, Chesterfield and food and beer festivals at various times throughout the year. Buxton's Pavilion Gardens often has craft fairs taking place.

Just returned from a weekend at Riverside house, Riverside house is fabulous, clean, spacious and very well equipped, perfect for walking or just relaxing enjoying the tranquil setting.... more

Booking a breeze, all done via email, to which Wendy responded immediately. The price was more than good value. We only stayed for the weekend as this was a girls getaway, and it definately was just that !! we all arrived seperately, in 7 cars, but had parking for everyone 6 off which were off road/lane. The house was clean, spacious and equipped with everything you could imagine. No queuing for the bathroom (even with 9 girls in the house) as there are so many !! With the log burner lit we were settled for the evening. Next morning after a hearty breakfast, a footstep out of the back door and across the bridge and we were on the monsal trail, this access is amazing !! and in no time we were in the pub, 7 miles later all that was left to do was put on our onesies, crack open a bottle or two & begin our tournament in the extremely well equipped games room (this really did out weigh our expectations) all in all we laughed, relaxed, ate & drank far too much, but had a fabulous girls weekend. Heres to the same time next year, thank you Wendy & Caren

I've stayed at Riverside House before and will certainly stay there again because it gives me everything I could want in a holiday let less than 3 hours from London - it's just like being at home, with all the top class amenities anyone could want. I particularly like the fact that the house is more than fully equipped to cater for so many people in our party from breakfast through to a full dinner party if that's what you want. The facilities are excellent and I love the fantastic log burner and the TV/surround-sound - perfect for relaxing in the evenings with a thrilling film after a long walk through the beautiful Peak District all around.
