About the location


Ashbourne 5 miles; Stoke-on-Trent 22.2 miles

This picturesque village lies beside the River Manifold, among the limestone hills of the Staffordshire Peak District. Brushing borders with Derbyshire, close to the famous Dovedale valley, this village boasts a historic church and pretty, Alpine-style cottages. Ilam Park, owned by the National Trust, is the perfect place to picnic or stroll with your families and four-legged friends, boasting a riverside backdrop and popular tea-room garden for all to enjoy the year-round. The neo-Gothic Ilam Hall is a stately home now housing a youth hostel within the grounds, as sheep graze peacefully in the open grassland. The views stretch for miles across the Italian Gardens and a challenging circular walk leads you through 10 miles of stunning scenery, taking in Thor's Cave and Wetton village. About five miles away, at the southern end of the Peak District, is the quintessential English market town of Ashbourne, with narrow cobbled alleys, coaching inns and almshouses. There are many restaurants and pubs to choose from, as well as antique shops. For those seeking a thrill from rollercoaster rides, Alton Towers is easily reached from here and further afield you have the cities of Derby and Nottingham. A wonderful location for your next adventure.
