If you are visiting Derbyshire or the southern part of the Peak District National Park, we can show you the best walks in the area. Let us know when you are in the area and where you plan on staying, and we will work with you to create a unique two to seven-day personalised itinerary of walks to suit your own interests and schedule. If we don’t have an existing walk that matches your requirements, we can even try to devise a new walk that does (possibly subject to some limitations regarding distance, public access to land, etc). In addition to advising you on the suitability of individual walks, we can also advise you on other aspects of your stay such as accommodation and travel.
The walks we currently have available cover a broad area including the popular tourist towns of Bakewell and Buxton, plus the historic Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site just south of the Peak District National Park. Places of interest visited or passed by the various walks include Cromford Mill, where Richard Arkwright began the Industrial Revolution, the magnificent Chatsworth House, the Monsal Trail, plus a number of beautiful and tranquil Peak District valleys and dales. By combining a number of these walks, you can enjoy a wide range of stunning Peak District scenery, and also learn about the interesting and sometimes world-changing history of the area.
Your itinerary can also include free days for you to explore the area on your own or do some shopping, and we can advise you as to the best places to visit and how to get there.
By booking your own accommodation and travel, you get to choose where you stay and how you travel. Although we can’t book either for you, we can give you the benefit of our local knowledge when it comes to the best places to stay and the best ways to travel.
Both full and half-day walks are available, and all are designed to be accessible both via public transport and by car. The majority of our walks require no specialist equipment apart from a good pair of walking boots and some waterproofs, just in case – It is England, after all! Many of our walks are dog-friendly, and some are also wheelchair-accessible. Most walks have a maximum group size of 10 people, although other limits may apply for some walks.
Your adventure awaits!
