    Very central location for sight-seeing. Village people were friendly. Great food in the Miners Arms.

About the location


Carsington Water 2 miles; Matlock 8 miles.

The attractive and unspoilt conservation village of Brassington is perched on a hillside on the outskirts of the Peak District National Park in the midst of glorious open countryside. It is a traditional Peaks, limestone village with many cottages dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries. There are two pubs (both serving good food), and further amenities are available in nearby Matlock, Ashbourne and Bakewell. Close by is beautiful Carsington Water, covering 750 acres with some of the best sailing in the country. The site also offers boating, biking and windsurfing, along with shops, a restaurant and a children’s adventure playground. An excellent base for exploring the Peak District.
