About this location

The Derbyshire region

There is a great range of themed attractions, events and activities in Derbyshire - from opera and music festivals to theme parks and well dressings, walking and cycling holidays, not to mention stunning landscapes, a rich and diverse cultural heritage and nationally important historic homes.

Whether this is your first visit to the Peak District and Derbyshire, or you've already discovered the joys of the area, there's always something new to discover.

Chatsworth is the home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, one of Britain's best loved historic estates and the heart beat of the Peak District National Park. With famous works of art, a working farmyard, spectacular fountains and the finest shopping and eating, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Haddon Hall is a fortified medieval manor house dating from the 12th Century, and is the home of Lord and Lady Edward Manners. Described by Simon Jenkins in 1000 Best houses as "the most perfect house to survive from the middle ages," this remarkable old house is surrounded by terraced Elizabethan gardens and is set amongst the rolling countryside of the Peak District National Park.

Alton Towers is full of fabulous family fun, the famous Theme Park. Also, splash yourself silly in the wacky Waterpark, be pampered from head to toe in the Spa, and play a round of Extraordinary Golf.

Gulliver's Kingdom is a family theme park designed to cater for families with children between the age of two and thirteen. All its rides and attractions are designed to offer the whole family a full day out of fun and excitement.


The Devonshire Arms, Beeley is one of those picturesque country inns at the heart of Derbyshire village life. But with a difference! It offers all the charm and character of an historic inn with a warm and comfortable interior. Venture inside a little further and you will find the startlingly different décor of the brasserie with its contemporary bar, glass fronted wine store and colourful furnishings.

The Old Smithy, Beeley sells delicious home-made bread and cakes from are sister company St Clements Bakery plus essentials and newspapers available too. The licensed comfortable cafe serves freshly prepared wholesome foods, breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea using local ingredients where possible.

Peak Rail run regular Steam and Diesel hauled heritage passenger trains between Matlock Riverside and Rowsley.

Heights of Abraham - A visit to the Heights of Abraham starts with a spectacular cable car ride but there is much more to see and do once you reach the summit.

"perfect relaxing weekend away"

We had an amazing weekend with our teenage daugther, two grown up daughters and their boyfriends. The cottage was beautifully furnished and very spacious. The weather was awful but that meant we spent more time in this lovely cottage. We had brunch round the cosy log burner in the kitchen, ventured out for walks and tea and cakes and then lovely evening meals at the formal dining table. We finished off the evenings with a drink in the very friendly pub yards from the front gate. Our girls have asked if we can return to the same place next year for our family weekend away.
