More about the Peak District and Derbyshire

What magnificent country!

The area of Derbyshire known as the Derbyshire Dales includes the southern part of the Peak District National Park and contains some of the finest scenery in the whole of England. There are beautiful wooded valleys, rolling hills, deep cut gorges, wild crags and countless acres of fertile farmland.

This area was settled by the Saxons in the 7th and 8th centuries. Their legacy is a wealth of sleepy villages with a range of evocative names: Brassington, Weston Underwood, Blore, Mugginton, Kirk Ireton, Brailsford, and many, many more.

These villages are full of treasures - lovely Norman or mediaeval churches, ancient lead mines, fine old houses and traditional pubs.

Here, close to the hustle and bustle of the modern world, some easier-paced ways of life continue. This is a place to come and relax and soak up the atmosphere amid the magnificent scenery of the area.

At the heart of the Derbyshire Dales lies the River Dove, famous as the scene of Walton's 'The Compleat Angler'. Its high crags, deep gorge and swift stream have inspired poets, painters, rock-climbers and of course, fishermen.

Dovedale and the nearby Manifold valley offer some of the most dramatic scenery that England has to offer, plus excellent walking, cycling, fishing, hang-gliding and a place to come and wonder at the sheer magnificence of nature.
