This is very easy walking along a disused railway track. We veered off to visit the village of Tissington and enjoyed a lovely cuppa and excellent cakes in the cafe there.

We found the 13-mile Tissington Trail not as enjoyable interesting as the 8.5-mile Monsal Trail. Cycle hire at both ends of the trail. Refreshments hut next to cycle hire at Ashbourne end, along with toilets. We parked at the Sports Centre end of Ashbourne Tunnel...More

So local and we walked it every day in alternating directions. Tissington was lovely as was the opposite direction. Yogi loved it.

We decided to do this walk with our dog as it follows a disused railway line and is a easy walk mainly flat. We started the trail at Hartington and walked about two and a half miles before turning back the trail I believe is...More

We joined the trail at Tissington walking towards along a great wide track. Sadly we didn’t go very far so can’t help with info about a pub. Sorry.

Sorry, I don’t know for sure but you might like to check the hire centre. It’s at Parsley Hay. Just google it and it will give you all the details. It appears to hire what you want but best you check.
