Chatsworth House, Bakewell and Castleton
Castleton is perfectly situated for exploring the world famous Blue John Caverns which are again within walking distance from The Poachers. The Winnats Pass will give you spectacular scenery on your way up to Mamtor, the shivering mountain! If you like walking, caving and climbing then this is the perfect place for you. Why not visit the pretty village of Edale with Jacobs Ladder taking you up to the start of The Pennine Way.
Hope is ideally situated for a short drive to Chatsworth House, the market town of Bakewell (treat yourself to a tart!), also why not visit Haddon Hall, Crich Tramway Museum, or Gulliver’s Kingdom at Matlock Bath. Or for another exciting day out why not visit Alton Towers or Carsington Reservoir or take a quick drive up The Winnats Pass to the famous spa town of Buxton or treat the children to a visit to The Chestnut Centre Wildlife Park to meet the local otters and owls.
