– Ashbourne and the Peak District –
Enjoy a short stroll into the charming market town of Ashbourne. Explore a little further, and experience the joys of the Peak District, voted the world’s 4th best National Park.
Ashbourne is an historic market town of cobbled alleys and hidden yards just waiting to be explored, and only 15 minutes walking distance from the Farm.
Locally, you could climb Thorpe Cloud or walk along the Dove Valley to Milldale. Visit Chatsworth House or Norbury Manor, maybe sail across Carsington Water or cycle the Tissington Trail. Be excited by Alton Towers or awed by a cable car ride across the Derwent Valley at Abraham Heights or wowed by the underground Caverns.
The list of local attractions is many and numerous. The adventure begins ………..
Within a short drive you could be climbing the Derbyshire 3 peaks challenge – Bleaklow Head, Higher Shelf Stones & Kinder Scout. Cycling the Manifold Valley or High Peak Trail, walking the limestone valleys of the White Peak at Dovedale and Lathkill Dale, or the gritstone ridges and moorlands of the Dark Peak.
If you prefer a quieter life visit Winster Market House, the first National Trust property to be purchased in Derbyshire, Chatsworth, Tissington Hall or Haddon Hall, or if industrial heritage is your thing why not visit Cromford Mill, home of the first water powered mill, or the National Stone Centre.
