The tree planting through-out the year is stunning at any time. Very muddy in places. Great, really great dog walking!

Easy to get to, free parking and easy walking. Scenic. Some sections of the 5 mile Errwood Hall walk were pretty boggy so the right gear is required! Lots of different walks to choose from. Well worth checking out. 10-15 mins from Buxton.

Found this place by accident but what a find, the walks were wonderfull, scenery inspiring, quiet area and dog friendly. Lots of places to picnic and if you have time climb up to Shining Tor and enjoy the views.

Spoilt for choice on the walks, ideal for dogs, families and wheelchair access. Ideal for cycling, sailing and fly fishing.

A short drive / bit of a walk from Buxton towards Whaley Bridge and you are in the most magnificent valley. Walk round the reservoirs, through woodland and enjoy!

A wonderful day out with many walks. Fantastic views, reservoir, deep valley, woodland and ruins of Errwood Hall to name but a few. There are many websites extolling the attractions and history of the valley, which was flooded to create the reservoir. Highly recommended.
