About the location
Buxton 7 miles; Bakewell 11 miles; Leek 11 miles.
Hollinsclough is a small village just south of Buxton in the Peak District National Park. The village sits between the River Dove and the River Manifold and is situated in beautiful rolling hills which are generally quieter than the more popular walking areas to the north and east. Nearby Buxton is famous for the spa waters that rise up through the eight thermal springs that originally attracted the Romans to the town. It was during the 18th and 19th centuries, under the patronage of successive Dukes of Devonshire, that the Palladian splendour of the Buxton of today was designed and built - including the magnificent semi-circular Crescent, The Great Stable, Hall Bank, The Square, The Pavilion Gardens and The Opera House. Today visitors continue to enjoy these magnificent buildings and gardens, as well as the Opera House's full programme and annual festivals of music and arts. Also within easy reach is the charming town of Bakewell, famous for its puddings, as well as the Chatsworth Estate which is open to the public throughout the year. A great base for exploring the Peak District.
Note: Adults only.
