There is so much to do locally, it can be bewildering knowing where to start. When you are actually staying here you will find access to pretty well all the information you might need already loaded onto the Sony netbook in your barn.
Before you are here perhaps the first bit of advice is to look at all the activities on our Out and About page. There is plenty of information there, with links to pretty well most activities available locally, whether walks, water sports, climbing – you can even hang glide if you really want to.
Then of course there are all the stately homes locally – Chatsworth, Haddon, Kedleston, Sudbury and not much further afield, Lyme Park and Hardwick Hall. Theatres too… our very favourite being Buxton Opera House which is an easy half hur’s drive from here.
If you are interested in cooking here are plenty of excellent farm shops, butchers and delicatessens, all selling local food; if you’d rather eat what someone else has cooked there are wonderful pubs and restaurants in the area, some even within walking distance of here. If shopping is your thing there are book shops and antique shops galore, not to mention some pretty classy dress shops…
And to end on the self-indulgence theme, there are several places locally where one can book a pampering session or two (for the men as well as the ladies if that appeals).
