OUT & ABOUT

Fancy a bit of fresh air?

AND WHILE YOU ARE HERE

Let George suggest some activities to get you out and about during your stay in the beautiful Derbyshire Dales.

Some suggestions from George…

Shopping at Chatsworth Farm Shop

Established by the Duchess of Devonshire in 1977 this award winning farm shop is proud of its history and philosophy.

More than half of all products are either produced or prepared on the Chatsworth estate, and with plenty of free parking, the shop is well worth a visit.

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

‘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.

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.

Discover happening Sheffield

England’s greenest city, is set in a unique Peak District landscape. It boasts an impressive industrial heritage, excellent theatre and live music venues, world class sporting action and gallery partnerships with the V&A.

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 Edge or, for the more ambitious, there’s the much more strenuous test doing the 6 Dales Circuit – a little under 27 miles!

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.

Hathersage open air swimming pool

Hathersage has a large (100ft X 33ft) public swimming pool.

The pool is open air – one of a dwindling number of such pools – with water heated to 82°F (28°c), hot poolside showers, lawns and views of Stanage Edge, Hathersage Church and the surrounding hills.

Try fishing on Ladybower reservoir

Fishing can be arranged on Ladybower Reservoir (just 2 miles away in Bamford) by contacting the fishery office directly on 01433 659 712 or visit www.ladybowerfisheries.co.uk for opening hours, prices and further information.

A personal note from George…

Dear Guest… I’m not sure how ancient I am. My current innkeeper thinks I am about 500 years old but my being but a simple old inn, my memory fails me. My keeper believes too that I was named after the then eponymous reigning monarch, but I fear it was no-one so...

George The Tractor…

Why is it so difficult to retell a joke which seemed so funny when first heard? I learned this aged 12; I was asked “Who was the first Scotsman?” “Dunno, who?” “MacAdam!”. So, soon afterwards I tried it. “Mummy, who was the very first Scotsman?” “Don’t know, Eric,...
