Chelmorton and The Peak District

Chelmorton is a classic White Peak limestone village set in stunning upland scenery, and a very quiet and peaceful village. It is one of the highest villages not only in Derbyshire, but all England and this region is known locally as Top Country. One of the dominant features of the White Peak landscape are the limestone walls and there is nowhere better to see these than in and around Chelmorton. 

The strip like crofts and patchwork of walls run at right angles off the main street and date back to medieval times. The village is built along this single street running up to the church of St John the Baptist, with its' graceful spire topped by a weather vane in the shape of a locust. Behind the church is Chelmorton Low (low in the Peak perversely signifies a height) and from here the delightful Illy Willy Water stream runs down through the village. Opposite the church is the village pub, The Church Inn is a family friendly pub serving great homemade dishes and local ales. It also has a great outdoor seating area for whiling away a summer evening. Booking a table is recommended

Further afield you will find the pretty market town of Bakewell less than 10 minutes drive from the cottage. Here you will find an abundance of local businesses and independent retailers selling lots of lovely things. A 10 minute drive in the other direction brings you to Buxton, another lovely market town famed for its natural spa waters. Visit the stunning Buxton Opera House, stroll around the Pavilion Gardens or head to Pooles Cavern where you will find the Go Ape adventure course and lots of fabulous walking around the 2 million year old limestone cave! 

Rose Cottage is a short drive (or an hours country walk!) to a fabulous pub The Royal Oak at Hurdlow which boasts an expansive menu of home-cooked food. Also the recently refurbished The Bull I Thorn offering homemade wood fired pizza with fresh dough made daily by our Italian chef, tasty burgers and classic British pub meals on the menu.

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 long route 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. From Chelmorton you can join the Midshires Way at High Stool Lane (locally known as  Blinder Lane, pronounce blin - der) and take in the panoramic views of Flagg moor. Walk along the lane until you meet the A515 cross the road and onto the High Peak Trail south towards Hurdlow, Parsley Hay and beyond.
