Lots to do and lots to experience. What would you like to do !

Cycling & Rambling
If you prefer the open countryside then experience the exhilarating climb, trails and rambles around the Derbshire Dales. Try your luck a the Stepping Stones at Dovedale near Ashbourne or walk or cycle the Tissington Trail which leads from Ashbourne - Hartington . The trail offers breath taking scenery blended with interesting scenery taking you along rivers and hills. On trail there is usually some quiet tea room or ice cream parlour to tempt you and make the day more enjoyable.Local reclaimed rail tracks provide cycle trails for the energetic as well as walks through the spectacular scenery along the Dove and the Manifold valleys
Rock Climbing
There is a huge variety of climbing in Derbyshire from bolted sports routes to some of the hardest traditional routes. Probably the best known crag in the Peak District is Stanage Edge (gritstone), which can absorb hundreds of climbers at weekends. If you prefer a quieter climbing venue, there are always some more out of the way limestone crags to be found. Some of the other gritstone edges such as Froggatt and the Burbage valley can be quiet on weekdays but are busy at weekends. There are a number of novices and beginners crags, for example Burbage North and Birchen (often and incorrectly called Birchen’s) edge. Froggatt has a wide range of grades to suit all abilities. If you prefer to boulder, there is plenty available. Some of the better and consequently more popular places are the Burbage valley, Higgar Tor, Cratcliffe and Stanage.
Abseiling in Derbyshire
Millers Dale Bridge provides the most spectacular Peak District abseil site. Here you can have your Derbyshire abseiling adrenaline rush, jumping off a man-made structure.
