The England region

The Peak District is the first English national park and has fantastic scenery and great opportunities for walking and visiting towns such as Bakewell and Buxton, great houses including Chatsworth and Haddon Hall and fascinating gardens. There are various festivals such as well dressing and Wakes and Wirksworth has its own marvellous Arts Festival every September. Plus a range of local pubs with beer from micro breweries and tea shops with delicious cakes.

Winster

Winster is an old lead-mining village, situated on a hillside a little reminiscent of Cornwall. Miners from Cornwall came to help with the mining in this area and influenced the layout of the village. We are close to both Haddon Hall and Chatsworth and you can walk for miles from the cottage. Cycling is also possible on the local trails but slightly hilly to get there so make sure you have gears or a bike rack! The area is geared up for tourism and has everything from a theme park, Gullivers Kingdom to the quietness of Stanton Moors where you can find several stone circles. We live next door so always happy to help providing information and a pick up from Matlock Station if need be.
