Cycling
The Peak District is the world's second-most visited national park (after Mount Fuji in Japan) and Britain's first, and it's easy to see why. The countryside varies stunningly between lush river valleys, hill pasture, and dramatic moorland.

Our driveway leads to a bridleway on the famous Three Shires Head network providing some of the most spectacular walking and riding in the country. From here you can reach many of the district's network of paths and quiet roads ideal for exploring the spectacular Peak District, many of which pass great country pubs for a well-earned lunch. Chrome Hill is another favourite starting from the next valley to ours.

Riding
There's a riding centre in our village who can arrange treks of any distance to suit all abilities. The less experienced can sign up for lessons at the local riding school.

Cycling

There are many cycle paths and trails through the Peak District and the National Forest including the Trans Pennine Trail and purpose designed cycle tracks along former railway lines like the High Peak and Tissington Trails, the Five Pits Trail and the Sett Valley Trail. There are also many opportunities for mountain biking, with certain areas specially designated for off-road cycling. If you're bringing your own bikes there's free storage on-farm, and if you aren't you’ll find numerous cycle hire centres, such as Shipley Country Park, Carsington Water and Derwent Information Centre, where you can hire a bike for a few hours or a few days. There's lots more information at the Peak District's cycling site and at Pedal Peak District.
