Hartington Village views

From The Hayloft leave your car safely parked and enjoy the many walks from the door. Explore the beauty of Biggin Dale, Wolfscote Dale as well as the famous Dovedale itself.

The local trails (for walkers, cyclists including Tissington, Manifold and Monsal) can all be assessed in or near Hartington.


Towns nearby include Bakewell, famous for it’s busy Monday market, individual shops and Bakewell puddings. You can also visit the nearby spa town of Buxton, with it’s splendid pavilion gardens and lovely opera house.

The town of Ashbourne made famous by Shrovetide football in February has lovely quirky shops and cafes serving delicious local food.

Chatsworth House

We are lucky to have the magnificent Chatsworth House and gardens nearby, a must do on any visit to Derbyshire. (Book on line beforehand for free parking etc)

By contrast nearby Haddon Hall again is in a lovely riverside setting and is well worth a visit , perhaps combining it with a visit to Bakewell.
