The varied landscape of the Peak District makes it ideal for the walker, the cyclist or for those seeking more adventurous pursuits. There are opportunities for climbing, caving, watersports, hang-gliding, mountain biking etc.Numerous footpaths and bridle ways are on our doorstep and offer unrivalled walking in the best part of the White Peak - this is the area of the Peak District of rolling hills, dry stone walls, villages and dales, the Dark Peak being mainly moorland.
The highly popular Tissington Trail, which runs for 17 miles, is used by walkers, cyclists and horse riders, and is less than 1 mile from us.
Two further trails, the High Peak Trail and the Manifold Valley Trail (both almost as long), are within 3 miles. These three tracks are ideal for family cycling as is the network of quiet minor roads leading off at various places from the trails. Indeed Sustrans Route 54 passes within 50 yards of the end of our drive along bridleways linking all three trails.
