Contrast the solitude and magnificent views of heather moorland and windswept rocky escarpments with the pastoral patchwork and traditional stone villages of the limestone dales. Whether you prefer the challenge of Stanage Edge, the Roaches and the Dark Peak, or gentler walking through green valleys and picture-postcard villages, the Peak District National Park is home to superb contrasting landscapes for you to explore.
Stay in the peaceful village of Thorpe, close by the natural beauty of Dovedale’s famous gorge. A world of sheer walls, caves, stepping stones and rock spires, this is the perfect playground for geologist and outdoor enthusiast alike. Away from the gorge, this peaceful landscape is dotted with pretty hamlets and showcases manicured estates such as Chatsworth.
Soak up this very traditional English countryside scene, and work up an appetite as you walk. Celebrate the end of a superb day’s walking by savouring local treats in the teashops – make sure not to miss out on Derbyshire’s famous Bakewell Pudding.
