About the location


Alton Towers 2.5 miles; Ashbourne 12 miles.

The beautiful wooded hamlet of Ramshorn is just a 20-minute walk from the pedestrian entrance of the ever-popular Alton Towers. Britain's number one theme park, Alton Towers has rides and attractions aimed at everyone. And at the Alton Towers Resort, the fun continues all year round at the fabulous waterpark at Cariba Creek, the Alton Towers Spa (Pamper Day packages available), or by enjoying a round of Extraordinary Golf. With so much going on and regular seasonal events, the Alton Towers resort is a fabulous day out, no matter what the time of year, and so conveniently close to the Ramshorn Wood. Once you've had your fill of the thrills and spills, head for the nearby lovely market town of Ashbourne, with its eccentric street plan and narrow cobbled alleys, which features an array of delightful antique stores and a choice of good pubs and restaurants. Attractions like Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, Dovedale, and the fantastic Derbyshire Villages Ilam, Hartington and Tissington - famous for the well dressings - are also within easy reach. The area offers so much variety in the way of outdoor pursuits - hire bicycles to take advantage of the region’s many famous cycle trails, relax with a round of golf on one of the superb courses, have a go at rock-climbing or pot-holing, or swap two legs for four and see this beautiful part of the country from horseback. Alternatively, take advantage of the many wonderful walks for all abilities which criss-cross the spectacular Peak District and Derbyshire Dales countryside. The perfect destination for all ages.
