Locally, there are many country houses and gardens to explore including Chatsworth House, Kedleston Hall and Sudbury Hall, all having regular special events. The city of Derby has a wonderful cathedral, busy shopping centre, cinemas and theatres.

The Peak District National Park is home bustling towns: Buxton with its elegant architecture and history, Bakewell the home of the Bakewell pudding, Castleton with its castle and caverns and Matlock Bath with its cable cars, caves and Gullivers Kingdom theme park to make it a great day out. This area is one of the top walking destinations in the UK, with long challenging treks to easy circulars. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy extreme sports: mountain biking, climbing and caving.

Take a walk down the Tissington Trail to reach Thorpe and Dovedale where you can cross the ‘stepping stones’ and climb Thorpe Cloud for a breath taking view of the valley, or for the thrill seekers, Alton Towers is just a 30-minute drive away.
