Visit us in the Peaks

Do you really need an excuse to come to the Peaks?

It’s stunning up here, we’re all local to the area and more than happy to give you some tips about where to stay, visit, drink or eat; there’s some brilliant hidden gems that only the locals know about!

Just drop us an email with what you like and what you’re after and we’ll get back to you with some suggestions.  In the meantime here’s a few ideas…

Why not coincide your visit with the world famous International Hen Racing Championships on the first Saturday in August at The Barley Mow, Bonsall?

Bakewell Farmers Market;  just up the road from our showroom is a must for any foodie, it’s the second biggest in the country but it’s not about the quantity, it’s the quality. It’s always on the last Saturday of every month (check at Christmas time though).

Like your real ale?

Derbyshire is the Real Ale capital of Britain, with numerous, unique and individual pubs near by.  We also have the nationally acclaimed Thornbridge Brewery a few miles down the road, go for a tour and sample a few of their freshly brewed, awarding winning ales.

If you’re after a proper, Derbyshire pub with the real fire, great pub food and of course local ales then here are a few of the best pubs around…

The Barley Mow, Bonsall
The Red Lion, Litton
The Old Poets Corner, Ashover
The Packhorse, Little Longstone
The Devonshire, Beeley

Heritage & history your thing?

Well we have the incredible Chatsworth House two miles up the road. Just taking a walk by the river is worth the trip alone but if you do have time looking around the house is a must.

There’s also the twice winner of Best farm shop in Britain, Chatsworth Farm Shop, which is world renowned for its hampers and locally reared meats.

There’s also Haddon Hall a couple of miles in the other direction. It’s Britain’s most complete (and still lived in!) medieval house.

Have you ever seen the film The Princess Bride? Well Haddon Hall was Humperdinck’s Castle!

Looking for an idyllic holiday home to come and stay?

The Swiss Cottage overlooking its own lake
The Hunting Tower with views over Chatsworth and the grounds designed by Capability Brown
Harthill Hall for your very own Manor House

These are very special places but we also have a number of friends with (less costly) holidays homes for let.  Just let us know what you’re after and we can send you some suggestions.

What ever you’re after we’re very lucky to live in a beautiful part of the world and we’re more than happy to help you make the most of it.

Hopefully see you soon!
