About the location

SHATTON

Hathersage 2 miles; Castleton 4 miles.

Shatton is a delightfully manicured hamlet nestled at the foot of a hill, surrounded by walks and beautiful countryside, between Hope and Hathersage, in the heart of the Peak District National Park. The picturesque village of Castleton is just four miles away, home to fascinating caves, and is overlooked by the crumbling Mam Tor or "Shivering Mountain". From the remains of the hill fort at the top of Mam Tor, the dramatic scenery of Winnats Pass, Edale Valley and Edale itself, known as the start of the Pennine Way can be viewed. Visit Hathersage to explore the churchyard and the grave of Little John (of Robin Hood fame) - whether he ever really existed is for you to decide, plus Hathersage vicarage is thought to be the inspiration Charlotte Bronte’s famous novel Jane Eyre. For a village of its size there is a very good selection of shops, pubs and places to eat, as well as a public, open air heated swimming pool and a railway station with direct links to Manchester and Sheffield. Slightly further afield you can potter around the historic market town of Bakewell, or the Spa town of Buxton, renowned for its spring water and Opera House. It is easy to spend a whole day at Chatsworth House, while there are plenty of historic properties nearby. Pull on your boots and enjoy the spectacular scenery, with walks for all abilities from ambling along the banks of the River Derwent to climbing the hillside paths and scrambling over the fascinating rock formations. Play golf at the Sickleholme Golf Course just a mile away, or explore a web of cycling trails, with bike hire available on the Monsal Trail and at the Derwent/Ladybower Reservoir. A beautiful base for exploring the Peak District!
