About the location
Bakewell 8 miles; Buxton 11 miles.
The peaceful, idyllic village of Great Hucklow lies on the border of the distinctive landscapes of the Peak District - the limestone dales of “the white peak” and the gritstone moorland of “the dark peak” - thus providing wonderfully contrasting walking country. There is a village pub serving food and interesting beers. The village holds its traditional well-dressing and gala day in the second week of August and has spectacular lights at Christmas. Neighbouring villages are Eyam - “the plague village”, Tideswell - home to “the Cathedral of The Peak”, and Bradwell - historic lead mining village and gateway to The Caverns and The Pennines.
