The Peak District National Park is famous for its peaks and dales. It offers beautiful countryside to walk and cycle though. There are footpaths leading directly from the site and it is less than half a mile to both Lathkill Dale and Bradford Dale. The Peak District has some excellent family friendly traffic free cycle trails. The Monsal trail, Tissington trail and High Peak trails are all a short distance away. Either bring your own bike or hire one on the trails.
