Goyt Valley never gets old, it's amazing. One of my favourite places on earth and only 5 miles from my house. It's hard to beat a summers day picnic, watching the sailing club and relaxing on the banks of the reservoir. If you haven't been, go!!!

This is an amazing place and so close to Buxton. Best to approach from the northern end. Both roads in and out are quite something. Great dog walking area opposite the sailing club. Would be very colourful in the summer. Well worth a visit.

Lovely walks in the Goyt Valley. Vist the remains of Errwood Hall and geocache as well. Beware of one way system during the summer months if driving - you can only travel south towards the A54 from Errwood car park

Had a lovely drive in Goyt Valley and afternoon walk around Errwood Hall which was beautiful and not too strenuous. Plenty of places to park the car and easy to follow paths to get you safely back at the end of your walk.

Goyt Valley must be one of the most beautiful walks in Buxton - we really enjoyed the walk - the views are spectacular and we felt lucky to be retired so we could enjoy this stunning scenery - everyone we met were also really friendly and most of them are locals as they had so much local knowledge to tell...

Not far outside Buxton, this valley was just fine for a morning ramble. I left the car park, and went along a trail which curved downhill toward a lake. I eventually reversed, and came back up hill to the car. Even in the mid morning at 50 degrees, the effort produced a good sweat.

We visit Goyt valley mid-February during half term holiday. we chose Fernilee circular path and it's about 4 miles easy walk. The footpath is very muddy and make sure you use suitable boots. We enjoyed the pictuorus view of Fernilee reservoir and woodland. There are several car parks and Toilet facility available near Errwood reservoir. There are 17 different paths... More
