A panoramic view of the surrounding countryside

Once famous for its locally produced cheese, Hartington still has a cheese shop in the centre with a number of cafes, shops and a pub. There is a bus route from the village and many walks in and around the surrounding areas. Hartington is a popular spot for tourists especially at weekends. It has some souvenir shops and tea rooms, and a focal point for the northern end of the limestone dales on the river Dove with some excellent footpaths centred from the village.

The former Hartington railway station, Within easy walking distance of the property, is now a picnic area with toilet facilities and an information centre. The track itself was converted into what is known as the Tissington Trail. Now very popular with both walkers and cyclists offering stunning scenery on route. Hartington is also a good starting point for walking along Beresford Dale, Wolfscote Dale and Lathkill Dale all beautiful routes with rocks and cliffs along the way.

Those seeking places to visit and find activities beyond those in the immediate vicinity of the cottage will find a wealth of historic houses, delightful villages, busy market towns and a wide range of spectacular scenery.

The property is within easy reach of many splendid historic houses, including the likes of Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Calke Abbey, Hardwick Hall, Lyme Hall and Kedleston Hall.

The cottage is centrally located to visit Ashbourne, Leek, Buxton, Bakewell, Dovedale and Matlock – each having something individual to offer – and is ideally placed for a visit to Alton Towers theme park.

Ashbourne is a lovely market town with a good range of shops, art galleries, antique shops, pubs and restaurants. The spa town of Buxton has beautiful Victorian and Edwardian buildings, a fine park, indoor shopping centre and a range of antiques and collectors fairs. Bakewell is, of course, home of the Bakewell pudding and well worth exploring.

The former spa town of Matlock has a lot to offer and the spectacular location of Matlock Bath is the setting for a mining museum, cable car rides, show caves as well as antique shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants.

The villages nestling in the hollows of the Peak District National Park are numerous and well worth a visit.
