Our Top 5 Places to Visit Nearby

1. A visit to the village of Wincle

A great day out for the family with something for everyone to enjoy. Start off with a visit to the famous Danebridge Fisheries, a great place to visit with kids, here you can fish in the well-stocked pool, catch your own supper or feed the trout (food supplied). Then 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 trails and animals to pet there is something for everyone!

2. Tittesworth Reservoir

Located just outside the mill town of Leek on the edge of the Peak District National Park, this Severn Trent reservoir is another great day out for all the family. There are two lovely walks around the reservoir, the shorter trail is only 1.5miles and is ideal for a gentle stroll and suitable for pushchairs. For bird watchers and wildlife lovers, there are two hides available to use. The fantastic large adventure play area is suitable for children between the ages of 2 and 15 years old. The large sand pit is especially popular so don't forget to bring your bucket and spade! You are very welcome to take your own picnic and there are plenty of idyllic spots for this, but you can also enjoy a barbecue in the new designated area.

3. The Roaches

The Roaches, with Hen Cloud and Ramshaw Rocks form a gritstone escarpment which marks the south-western edge of the Peak District. A mecca for walkers and climbers with some of the best gritstone climbing in the country. Once you have reached the top of the rocky ridge there are stunning viewing across the Staffordshire moorlands. Obviously no trip would be complete without catching the ‘winking man.’

Click here for more information on the Roaches

4. The Manifold Trail

A short but very attractive walking/cycle route along the route of the former Leek & Manifold Light Railway. Look out for the impressive Thor’s Cave and interesting rock formations along the way and stop for lunch at the lovely National trust tea rooms at Wetton Mill, or take a picnic to have down by the river.

5. 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.
