This is where the town meets the countryside, where the Peak District meets Robin Hood Country, where tracks and trails lead through sleepy villages, around meadows and moorland and into rippling river valleys.
Every now and again you'll stumble across a stunning view, a fascinating garden or a stately home, from the magnificence of Chatsworth to the Italianate gardens at Renishaw Hall. From Elizabethan splendour at Hardwick, past the dramatic hillside ruin of Sutton Scarsdale Hall to Bolsover Castle where the past comes to life.
We're at the crossroads of England, pin pointed on the map by Chesterfield's famous 'Crooked Spire' Church, with easy access from the M1 and accommodation to suite every pocket. Browse the website to find out more.
