The England region

There is so much to do and see in the Peak District, it is hard to know where to start.
The most famous tourist attraction in the area is probably Chatsworth House, home to the Duke and Duchess

The England region

There is so much to do and see in the Peak District, it is hard to know where to start.
The most famous tourist attraction in the area is probably Chatsworth House, home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. The house itself is magnificent, room after room is beautiful, full of stunning furniture and treasures. The exterior too is fantastic - in Summer it is lovely to picnic in the park, next to the river or alternatively to go inside the gardens and sit by the cascade, paddling if it gets to hot. The Emperor fountain is impressive as are the many sculptures. There is some lovely walking behind the house in Stand Wood and for the Children the farm and adventure playground is a must.
There is also Haddon Hall, a fine medieval manor house, on the road between Bakewell and Matlock.
On the other side of the hill from Eyam, is Castleton - home to the Blue John Stone, haunted pubs and, of course, a castle. Caverns a plenty in Castleton, all of which are well worth a visit. There is also Speedwell, an old flooded lead mine which you travel through by boat until you reach the bottomless pit - just watch your head on the very low ceiling.
On one side of Castleton, there is the Owl and Otter Centre and on the other, Hathersage where Little John is apparently buried and there is an open air swimming pool
Bakewell. home of the pudding is within 6 miles and not much further afield is Matlock with its cable car ride up to the Heights of Abraham, where you can walk through some old lead mines and found out how it was done. Gullivers Kingdom is also in Matlock for those who like thrills and spills on the rides. Crich Tramway museum is worth a visit, as is the Red House Carriage museum and the Peak Rail, the steam railway that runs between Rowsley and Matlock
There are some great bike rides in the area - no excuses, you can hire bikes there. The Tissington Trail particularly is a great day out ... and being an old railway track it is flat!
For the even more adventurous there is Go Ape in Buxton

Eyam

Eyam is known as the plague village. In 1665, so the story goes, a tailor from London stayed the night in Eyam. It was wet and his cloth was damp so they put it in front of the fire to dry out. Unbeknown to the tailor and his landlady the cloth was full of plague spores and as the cloth dried they were released into the air. The tailor died and, one by one, so did the people of Eyam. Realising the severity of the situation, they all agreed to voluntarily quarantine themselves so prevent further spread of the disease. The Eyam museum tells the story and the tragic and the uplifting stories that came out of that terrible time.
... but there is more to Eyam that the plague story. There is Eyam Hall, which is open to the public and houses a craft centre, the village stocks are still there and in the churchyard there is a Saxon Cross, which dates back to the 9th century. Eyam is one of the last remaining villages in England to still have a bull ring and is also the last village in the Peak to celebrate its well dressing. Well dressing is usually the last week in August with a sheep roast in the first weekend of September.
The Miners Arms, in the centre of the village has a reputation for good food and is believed to be one of the most haunted places in Derbyshire. Just above the village, The Barrell at Bretton is excellent for food too.

“Who's been sleeping in my bed??”

Reviewed 21 May 2013

Wonderful 4 nights in this cottage right opposite museum in centre of Eyam. Aga in the kitchen keeps the cottage warm and snug. Bijou shower room but very cosy and excellent value for money.

“I don't want to tell to tell anyone about our secret gem!”

Reviewed 15 Sep 2012

OK, I have actually recommended it to all my friends already. We actually went here twice 2012 with young-ish kids. Clean house, owners very communicative and gave lots of advice, and the AGA is a real boon! 7th time in Peak District, this exact area suits us perfectly, close to climbing, rambling, Sheffield, more climbing in all directions, and corner shop 3 doors down. Only downside was that we would have preferred better programmes on TV.

“Perfect in every detail”

Reviewed 13 Jun 2012

Three Bears Cottage is a lovely place to spend your holidays, even if your unlucky with the weather, as I was. It's obvious that a great care is taken to keep this place up to high standards, and make your stay a pleasure. I was really touched by a bunch of fresh tulips on the window seal. The hosts are also great in keeping you informed. There's really not much more to say, everything was simply perfect to the very detail (except the weather).
