About the neighbourhood
Hartington's greatest claim to fame has to be it's Stilton cheese. Manufactured on a grand scale for many years, the manufacture is now a much smaller operation, but just as tasty. Try the local Cheese Shop. Close to the Tissington and High Peak trails makes Hartington a mecca for cyclists. The area boasts hundreds of country walks, from tea shop trails to strenuous walking. Some of our visitors have even left us their worn out boots in the bin.
Getting around
Hartington is served by local buses, the bus stop is in the centre of the village a short walk from the barn. The nearest train stations are Buxton and Cromford.
