About the neighbourhood
Derbyshire offers the best of everything - lakes & mountains, gorges & valleys, numerous National Trust houses, Alton Towers theme park and the natural Carsington Water. The pretty Derbyshire villages of Ashbourne, Wirksworth, Bakewell, Eyam and Buxton are all worth a visit, to explore the delights that Derbyshire can offer.
Getting around
A car is preferable for arrival at Standlow but once you are there, you can unpack and unwind. Carsington Water offers bicycle hire and plenty of routes to follow traffic-free. Alternatively, take the country bus and visit the local areas. Derbyshire is full of walks and trails, many traffic-free, and always with a coffee shop or tea room to visit.
