Just a short walk across the fields and you can hop onto to the High Peak and Tissington Trails, these former railway lanes are ideal for walkers and cyclists of all abilities. Both trails meet at Parsley Hay (2 miles away) where there is a cycle hire centre offering a range of bikes to hire including adult bikes, children's bikes, accessible bikes and tandems.
Nearby is the pretty village of Monyash, as well as the Limestone Way passing through it, it is also the starting point of one of the Peak District's best well known walks through the beautiful Lathkill Dale. The village is served by the traditional Bull's Head Pub which boasts a fantastic children's play area to the rear, and the wonderfully rustic Old Smithy tearooms.
The idyllic market town of Bakewell, home of the famous Bakewell Pudding and historic Haddon Hall is close by. It is also at the start/end of the popular Monsal Trail, the former Midland Railway line runs 8.5 miles through stunning scenery up to Blackwell Mill in Chee Dale. With the recently reopened tunnels the trail is one of the most spectacular leisure routes in Britain for walkers and cyclists.
For those looking to explore some of the Peak Districts best walking routes, then Dovedale (famous for it's stepping stones), the Goyt Valley and Mam Tor are all within easy reach. If you feel like cooling off in those warmer summer months, then one of the regions best wild swimming spots, the Three Shire's Head is a must!
