Landscapes of The Peak District

Baslow, Hathersage & Castleton
 
This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel walking, luggage transported
  • panoramic gritstone ‘edges’
  • visit Chatsworth House and Bakewell
  • stay in three typical Peak District towns

The contrast between the ordered parkland and manicured gardens of Chatsworth House, and the straggling rocky escarpments that line the heather-clad moorland of Britain's first National Park, makes for a very inviting few days’ leisurely exploration.

Leaving behind the less forbidding crags and undulations of the Derwent Valley, we climbed Win Hill with views of Ladybower Reservoir on one side, Hope Valley on the other, and the higher, bleaker moors of Mam Tor and Edale ahead.

After providing early opportunities to visit Bakewell and Chatsworth, our route follows the River Derwent towards the moors and a series of striking and dramatic gritstone 'edges’. Returning to the river and the charming market town of Hathersage, you then head off to your final destination in Castleton, taking in stunning views from the hills as you make your way to the geological gems of Mam Tor and the Blue John Mines.
