Moorland & GritPeak District

Gritstone crags stretch their rocky limbs out over the rolling moorland, caves and chasms delve deep down into the ground and rolling country lanes ramble through picturesque villages. The Peak District is central England’s best kept secret, a veritable wilderness of rocky outcrops, far-reaching countryside and forest that conveniently lies barely fifteen minutes outside of Sheffield. Rock climb at the famous, four-mile long Stanage Edge or wander the Pennine Way, go caving in one of the many caves in the area or treat yourself to a cream tea at a tea room with a view. Breathe in the fresh country air and soak up this stunning landscape.

The Peak District is a National Park in England which covers 555 square miles across northern Derbyshire and parts of Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Staffordshire and Yorkshire. It was the first National Park created in England and is one of the most visited attracting over 10 million visitor every year.
