The attractive village of Wetton stands amidst rolling hills, rocky outrcops, undulating valleys and farmland above the glorious Manifold Valley. The walking from your doorstep offers amazing variety; either steady strolls along the disused route of the former Leek and Manifold Light Railway or more strenuous hikes taking in some of the surrounding hidden valleys, woods, hills and limestone tors. The most famous sight, a short walk from the village heart, is the impressive Thor’s Cave; high up on the hillside, it towers above the valley and its 60 ft high entrance lures you in to explore. Below is Wetton Mill, a former corn mill now owned by the National Trust - the tea rooms here is a lovely spot to stop and enjoy the scenery beside the River Manifold.
Wetton is located approximately half-way between Butterton and Alstonefield, each being around two-and-a-half miles away, and there are lovely walks leading to them both; once there you will discover excellent watering holes, for in Butterton there is The Black Lion, and in Alstonefield, The George. Hartington and Dovedale are both 5 miles away and Ashbourne 10 miles drive.

The trail runs from Hulme End all the way down to Waterhouses (home to the Manifold Cycle centre where you can hire bikes) through some spectacular Peak District scenery. The route passes Beeston Tor, Wetton Mill (with its quaint tearooms) and the wonderful Thor's Cave which is well worth exploring. Inside you will find fascinating rock formations and mineral colours with wonderful views over the Manifold Valley.

No visit to the Peak District would be complete without visiting the fabulous Chatsworth House. At Chatsworth there is something to do for every member of the family. The Farmyard and Adventure playground is a brilliant day out for children of all ages - with animal handling, milking demonstrations and daily activities, plus a woodland adventure playground with slides, trampolines and more! Then there is obviously the House itself, steeped with history it’s one of Britain’s greatest stately homes and has been passed down through 16 generations of the Cavendish family. The Gardens are equally as impressive as the house, over 100 acres and as well and the beautiful flowers and plants, there are giant water features and sculptures dotted around. Again, suitable for all the family, with the maze, the garden trails, and the famous water cascade to keep the little ones occupied.
