Our Top 5 Places to Visit Nearby

1. The Royal Oak Pub

As our award winning pub is only 0.8 mile stroll down the lane, it would be rude not to pop in and sample the extensive menu and try the various local beers on offer.  Reservations are recommended, please call 01298 83288.

For further information please visit the Royal Oak website.

2. The Tissington and High Peak Trails

With the Tissington and High Peak Trails close by you can walk for miles along these old railway lines. Both trails meet at Parsley Hay, the Tissington Trail runs along a 13 mile route from Ashbourne to Parsley Hay, while the High Peak Trail is 17.5 miles longroute from the High Peak junction near Cromford to Dowlow. Surrounded by beautiful countryside the traffic-free trail is ideal for horse riders, cyclists and walkers of all abilities. It is also suitable for wheel chairs and pushchairs along the flat sections and the trail is mainly mud free which is quite rare in the Peak District. To find the nearest access turn left out of Hurdlow Grange and walk up the lane for ½ mile and you will come to a track clearly marked on you right, follow this until you reach the beginning of  the trail on the right hand side. The nearest bike hire can be found at Parsley Hay which is 2.5 miles away and is at the junction of the High Peak and Tissington Trails.

Click here for more information on Parsley Hay cycle hire.     (Parsley Hay does shut for Winter from 01st Nov until February)

3. Chatsworth House and Park 

No visit to the Peak District would be complete without visiting the fabulous Chatsworth Estate. There really is something to do for every member of the family - The Farmyard and Adventure playground, the magnificent house and the gardens which are equally as impressive as the house , with the maze, the garden trails, and the famous water cascade to keep the little ones occupied.

Click here for a link to Chatsworth House and Park.

4. A visit to the village of Wincle

A great day out for the family with something for everyone to enjoy.  Enjoy a visit to the Wincle Brewery, where you can even do a one day brewing course! After a trip to the brewery why not call into the Ship Inn, just down the lane where you can sample Wincle’s fine ales in the pretty beer garden. Follow up with finally finishing the day off with a visit to Blaze Farm, a working farm that has become famous for their awarding winning Hilly Billy Ice Cream which is all made on the farm using the milk from their dairy herd. With tea rooms, nature trials and animals to pet there is something for everyone!

5. The Spa town of Buxton

The spa town of Buxton can really offer something for everyone; enjoy a stroll around the pretty Pavilion gardens. The kids can enjoy the playground areas or you might chose to go for a swim at the recent refurbished swimming pool.
