The Heart of England/Peak District

The Derbyshire Peak District is an area of hills and valleys with woods, moorlands and

pastoral farming. Picturesque villages with old stone cottages and farms are scattered

across the countryside to give an ever-changing landscape.

There are opportunities for all types of outdoor activities from quiet walks, off-road cycling,

water sports and even a cable-car ride to the famous Heights of Abraham at Matlock Bath!

For interesting shopping there are local markets, shopping villages such as Masson Mills

at Matlock Bath and traditional small towns like Wirksworth, Matlock & Bakewell - where

there are also innumerable opportunities for eating out.

Children love attractions like Gulliver's Kingdom at Matlock Bath, while other visitors may

prefer famous historic houses and gardens like Haddon Hall, Hardwick Hall and Chatsworth.


Elm Tree Farm lies at the edge of Lea village overlooking wooded hillsides and pastures

enclosed by traditional dry stone walls. Public footpaths lead to the neighbouring historic

hamlet of Dethick while an ancient sunken trackway leads to the appropriately named

village of Holloway, home of an award-winning butcher's shop and the nearest post office

and village store.

Walk across the fields to Crich Stand for a magnificent view down over the lower Derwent

Valley and beyond, or head westwards past Lea Gardens to Lea Wood - a hidden gem, now

a reserve of the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust. Continue to the popular tourist destination of

Cromford where, tucked behind the mill pond lies the famous Scarthin Books. Cromford

Canal is home to Little Grebes and Water Voles while overlooking the water are the

fine 18th century buildings of Cromford Mill where you can enjoy tours, shopping &

refreshments all year round in this important part of the Derwent Valley World Heritage
