About the location


Bakewell 7 miles.

Priestcliffe is a small hamlet of farms and dwellings, sited between Taddington, the River Wye and Monsal Head. This is the scenic heart of the Peak District, with high limestone hills offering fantastic walks. Monsal Head is a famous beauty spot, with a magnificent view down Monsal Dale and up the Wye Valley. The position is at a spot where the Wye, on its passage eastwards to meet the Derwent, encounters a band of harder rock and is forced to make a sharp turn southwards and carve its way through a high ridge of limestone. The view is spectacular, with the river far below, winding through a steep-sided and often rocky valley. The route of the former Midland Railway makes its way along Monsal Dale and was carried by a viaduct over the river and into a tunnel which goes right beneath Monsal Head. This is now part of the Monsal Trail, a popular route with walkers. The attractive market town of Bakewell is just 7 miles away and offers visitors a good selection of shops, restaurants and pubs, as well as frequent local farmers’ markets. An ideal location for exploring the Peak District National Park.
