In Victorian times the spa towns of Buxton and Matlock were very popular and still attract many visitors today. The area is home to stately homes Chatsworth and Haddon Hall.

Hartington's greatest claim to fame has to be it's Stilton cheese. Manufactured on a grand scale for many years, the manufacture is now a much smaller operation, but just as tasty. Try the local Cheese Shop.
Close to the Tissington and High Peak trails makes Hartington a mecca for cyclists.
The area boasts hundreds of country walks, from tea shop trails to strenuous walking. Some of our visitors have even left us their worn out boots in the bin.
