Dovedale is the collective name for a number of the most beautiful, and consequently some of the busiest of the Derbyshire Dales. The River Dove has gouged out a narrow valley lending itself to gentle walks with superb views and taking in romantically named natural features such as the Lover’s Leap. Whilst on a cottage holiday, Dovedale is a perfect day out for a family stroll or a picnic.
At the northern end of the Dovedale valley, Hartington is a charming limestone village in a lovely location amongst spectacular scenery. The spacious village square has a duck pond, along with historic buildings, such as the Market Hall, Hartington Hall and St. Giles’ Church. The village also has a local pottery and a number of cafes, pubs and gift shops. Nearby Tideswell is often referred to as the ‘Cathedral of the Peaks’ and is certainly well worth visiting.
