The Manifold Trail which is a surfaced track suitable for both walking and cycling runs for 8.5 miles between Waterhouses and Hulme End. Other cycle and walking trails within the area include the Tissington, High Peak and Monsal Trails. Lovely walks are available along the many miles of footpaths and lanes within the surrounding area and the network of surfaced trails and lanes within the area make the cottage an ideal base for walking all year round. Dovedale, Thorpe Cloud and the pretty village of Ilam are less than a 15 minute drive away. Historic houses and gardens within the area include Chatsworth House with its farmyard, adventure playground and the many events held there throughout the year; Haddon Hall, Tissington Hall (restricted opening) and various National Trust properties including Sudbury Hall with its museum of childhood, Calke Abbey, Kedleston Hall and Biddulph Grange Gardens. Other attractions within the area include Gulliver’s Kingdom & the Heights of Abraham at Matlock; Poole’s country park, caverns and Go Ape at Buxton; Alton Towers and Splash Landings indoor pool (10 minute drive), The Peak Wildlife Park (10 minute drive); Waterworld at Stoke; Crich tramway museum and the Churnet Valley Railway. The National Memorial Arboretum, Tamworth Snow dome and Drayton Manor Theme Park are all within travelling distance of the cottage. The pretty market towns of Bakewell, Ashbourne, Leek & Buxton (renowned for its spa water and Opera House) are all well worth a visit and easily accessible from the cottage. Carsington Water which is within easy travelling distance of the cottage offers water sports, sailing, cycle hire, fishing, a children's play area and a bird watching centre with several hides, or you can just walk around the reservoir (a full circuit is around 8.5 miles). Two miles north of Leek is Rudyard Lake with it's miniature railway and activities on offer include walking, fishing and boating. Tittesworth Reservoir, also near Leek, offers walks, a visitor centre and water sports. For the more adventurous, visit Wild Park Derbyshire, between Ashbourne and Derby for paint balling, laser tag, quad biking and archery. All this and more is close to the cottage to keep you busy for the whole period of your holiday, or you can just relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility of this beautiful part of England. There is a separate garage for the storage of bikes and this also contains a selection of bikes which are available for guests to use. There is also a cycle hire centre in the village, a village shop, pub and cafe/takeaway. Smoking is not permitted inside the cottage. Pets accepted by prior arrangement. Cottage also benefits from a downstairs cloak room. Travel cot, high chair and stair gates are available upon request.
