It is also known for the many varied events held throughout the year, the monsal trail, the love lock bridge, the quaint courtyards with its many cafes and eateries and much more…

Set in the centre of the Peak District and close to Chatsworth House, it is ideal for a base for sightseeing, photography and outdoor activities or just relaxing.
