Location description from owner

The Derbyshire region

The Peak District is an area of great natural beauty situated in the heart of England and boasts some of the most dramatic and beautiful scenery in the world. This magnificent landscape is perfect for walking, cycling, sight seeing and for the more adventurous, climbing, caving and watersports. The area is home to many small and picturesque villages, historic markest towns and stately homes, the most famous being Chatsworth House, recently used as a filming location for a blockbuster movie. The area is also the location of Britain's first National Park - the Peak District National Park, said to be the second most visited National Park in the world.

The Peak District is a wonderful place to visit for a short weekend break or a longer holiday. With so much to do and explore, the Peak District has it all, covering parts of the counties of Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Cheshire and Yorkshire.

There are numerous interesting towns to explore including Ashbourne, a market town founded by the Saxons, forming the southern gateway to the Peak District. The town is the location of the famouse Shrove Tuesday football match which has to be seen to be believed.

Bakewell was founded in Saxon Times and is the home of the Peak District National Park Authority and is a busy market town notable for its livestock market. It is also famous for its Bakewell Tart!

Buxton was founded by the Romans, who exploited the warm spring water to build thermal baths, for which the town became very popular in the 18th and 19th centuries. As a result it has some magnificent buildings, notably the Georgian Crescent and the Opera House. It now has a thriving music and arts festival each summer.

Cromford and the famous Matlock bath can be added to the many places to visit in the area with its theme parks, cable cars, rock climbing and illuminations.

Tutbury

Castle Hill House is perfectly situated to explore the many attractions around Derbyshire and Staffordshire. Tutbury itself has a number of pubs, restaurants and craft and antique shops within walking distance. Castle Hill House is situated next to Tutbury Castle which forms a dramatic backdrop to the house. Tutbury Castle dates back to the stone age and was first recorded in 1071. It is most famous for detaining Mary Queen of Scots on four separate occasions. The castle has a busy calendar of interesting events throughout the year.

If you would like to explore further afield there are excellent road links to Peak District villages such as Ashbourne, only 15 miles away or for the more adventurous Alton Towers Theme Park is only 16 miles away.

If you would like a splash of retail therapy there are numerous shopping centres such as the Westfield in Derby City Centre or the McArthur Glen Factory Outlet a short drive away on the A38. There are also an array of market towns and stone villages to explore which offer something for everyone such as Bakewell, Buxton and the historic Matlock Bath.

If you’re the sporty type try water sports at Carsington Water or one of the many walks and cycle trails at Dovedale, Monsal Head and the Tissington Trail. The keen golfer is spoilt for choice with a number of championship golf courses within easy reach.

Derbyshire is also known for its many historic houses and parks, with many owned and managed by the National Trust they are perfect for a day out in the fabulous unspoilt countryside. Many houses have been used as filming locations such as Chatsworth House and Kedleston Hall.

Other attractions nearby include the Tamworth Snow Dome, Drayton Manor theme park, Trentham Gardens and Go APE!
