Shopping at Chatsworth Farm Shop

Visit Chatsworth House

Chatsworth is home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, and has been passed down through 16 generations of the Cavendish family.

The house is renowned for the quality of its art, landscape and hospitality, and it has evolved through the centuries to reflect the tastes, passions and interests of succeeding generations.

Hardwick Hall 2

Hardwick Hall

‘Hardwick Hall, more glass than wall’, is a well-known local saying that characterises one of the key features of Hardwick, the exuberant use of glass, an expensive and rare material in 1590s England. Hardwick is a house that shouted innovation from the same rooftops that proclaimed the builder of the house, Elizabeth Shrewsbury, the Countess of Shrewsbury, with her initials ‘ES’ sitting atop the turrets of the house.

Heights of Abraham

A great family day out, with lots of attractions including cable car views, restaurants and adventure playgrounds for children.

Haddon Hall

Haddon Hall

Haddon Hall is probably the finest example of a fortified medieval manor house in existence. Present-day Haddon Hall dates from the 12th Century to the early 17th Century, whereupon it lay dormant for over two hundred years from 1700 until the 1920s, when the 9th Duke and Duchess of Rutland restored the house and gardens, and once again made it habitable.

Stanage Edge

Just north of The George Hotel, Stanage Edge is a popular place for walkers and rock climbing with stunning views of the Dark Peak moorlands and the Hope Valley.

Crokked Spire

Hidden Chesterfield

Take a day in Chesterfield itself to find out how the ‘Crooked Spire’ got its twist. Or go bargain hunting on Chesterfield Market every Monday, Friday or Saturday. Get a taste of history at Chesterfield Museum or spend an evening at the Theatre.

Explore delightful Bakewell

Famed for its Puddings, Bakewell is set in an enviable location on the banks of the Wye, this beautiful old market town is in the heart of the Peak District, surrounded by stunning countryside views. Markets are held every Monday in the town centre and there is a thriving livestock market.



Go hiking or biking

Although the Peak District is famed for its hills, it offers many trails and bridleways to suit all walkers and cyclists, from the most energetic to the more leisurely.

Pretty villages, superb views, interesting history, fascinating wildlife and geology – it’s all here for you to enjoy.


Stroll the Derbyshire Dales

The Derbyshire Dales offers many beautiful walks to suit all.

These include a gentle 4 mile stroll along Curbar Edge and Froggatt Edgeor, for the more ambitious, there’s the much more strenuous test doing the 6 Dales Circuit – a little under 27 miles!

Peak Cavern

Explore the Castleton Caverns

Castleton is the centre of Peak District caving, with numerous interesting caves, pot-holes and former mines to explore.

These include both Peak Cavern, which is probably the longest local cave system and Titan, the recently discovered pothole which is the deepest cave system in Britain.

A night at the theatre

Sheffield Theatres is the largest theatre complex outside London. Across three auditoria: the Crucible, the Lyceum and the Crucible Studio, it offers a huge variety of home-grown and touring productions, as well as a thriving programme of participatory events and activities.

Time for a round of golf?

The Peak District has many fine golf courses with the closest to George being Sickleholme Golf Club.

The Cavendish Golf Club in Buxton is thought by some to be Dr MacKenzie’s most accomplished work in the UK and quite possibly the best layout in the world under 6000 yards.
