Spoiled our visit! Due to a photography event porta loos were made available to delegates. That is fine but one would think that on an estate that size a better place could be found than right in front of the coffee area!!!!

We went here as we were in the area and the weather was good. Follow the road sign to get in to the national trust car park. The car park is a good size and was quite busy but there were still some spaces.

There is a cafe, toilets and a kitchen garden a few minutes walk down from the car park. There is a little hut near the cafe which has some maps in for the walking routes. The kitchen garden is small and is nice to have a look at to see the different fruit and veg that is growing.

We followed the blue route which was one of the longest. It took us through woods and open countryside. This route has some really good views and scenery. At a couple of points you have to cross roads. The car park doesn't shut so you don't have to rush back to the car by a certain time.

I would recommend visiting here as this is a really good place to have a walk especially in good weather. The views and scenery are really good. There are different walking routes of different lengths and other walking routes a few minutes walk away from here

Visited for an afternoon with friends, parking was easy and was free as we are National Trust members. We walked the 'Blue' trail, the longest of the marked trails and really enjoyed the scenery all along the way. Pleasant woodlands, open moor , road crossing and then another path through moor and woodlands back to the carpark. Shorter trails are available and marked from the start. We didn't use the cafe or shop but I would recommend this place for the walk alone. Paths were tidy, clearly marked and well kept

If you want a great place to go for a walk, with a range of landscapes (valley/forest/moor land) then this is definitely the place for you. The views are breathtaking and you will take lots of photos! There are suggested walks of varying distances but there are many paths so you can go your own way. Very busy at the visitor centre, but soon after you spread out, and you may not see anyone for a while. Our dog loved it-even managed to tire him out! Well worth a visit. Simply Beautiful....

This is a little gem on the edge of the High Peak near Hathersage.
It is National Trust land which comprises woodland walks and the opportunity to walk across managed grassland with grazing sheep surrounded by a panoramic view of upland moors.
Fox House Inn is very near where you can refresh yourself from your walk.
