About the location


Bakewell 3.3 miles.

The pretty Derbyshire village of Great Longstone is situated in a wonderful location in the heart of the Peak District National Park. Great Longstone is nestled in an enviable position, flanked by Longstone Edge, with Bakewell and Chatsworth House close by. The village offers two traditional village pubs, a shop, 18th century stone cottages and a market cross that is situated on the delightful village green. The Monsal Trail runs through the village and provides eight and a half miles of scenic traffic-free walking and cycling, with the spectacular viaduct at nearby Monsal Head and several tunnels along the route to keep the whole family interested. Just down the road lies the picture postcard village of Ashford-in-the-Water, which boasts a medieval Sheepwash Bridge, once a major crossing point over the River Wye for packhorses delivering mail from Derby. The nearby, renowned market town of Bakewell, which can be accessed via the Monsal Trail, offers a variety of shops, restaurants and pubs, together with frequent local farmers' markets. Take a stroll along the river bank to feed the ducks and geese and see the ‘love locks’ on the foot bridge. The spa town of Buxton with its Opera House is also within driving distance. You could also visit the many stately homes including the iconic Chatsworth, Haddon Hall and Hardwick Hall, or take a trip to the World Heritage Site of the Richard Arkwright Mills in Cromford, all of which are within easy reach. With the impressive castle and caverns at Castleton close by, you'll be spoilt for choice at this fantastic location.
