New Smithy is an idyllic, small hamlet situated in between Chinley, Chapel-en-le-Frith and Hayfield. It offers an ideal starting point to many varied walks around the Peak District. Chinley is a lovely little village nestled in a wonderful rural setting on the western edge of the Peak District National Park.

Serious walkers will wish to head east from the village, across the green foothills to the russet expanse of Kinder’s moorland plateau to take a starting step on the Pennine Way or Snake Pass. Families and those looking for gentler roamings can venture west along the beautiful Sett Valley Trail towards New Mills with the Torrs Riverside Park, a peaceful place for recreation and relaxation. Within just a short drive are the delightful High Peak villages of Chapel-en-le-Frith, boasting a cobbled marketplace and historic old stocks, and Whaley Bridge, with its canal basin and good range of local amenities. Just a little further is Castleton, with its famous caverns and Norman Castle, as well as the popular spa town of Buxton, with its fabulous Opera House and Victorian architecture and park, and not forgetting the wonderful markets towns of Ashbourne and Bakewell.
