Where you’ll be

Chelmorton, Derbyshire, United Kingdom

Set in the village of Chelmorton, 6 miles from Buxton, there are walks from the door and beautiful countryside to explore in every direction, plus a traditional village pub (which welcomes dogs) serving good food.
The market towns of Buxton, Ashbourne and Bakewell are within easy reach, as are the historic houses of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall. There are superb traffic-free cycle trails along former railway lines, with bike hire available. Lots of summer festivals and events, including RHS Chatsworth and Eroica Britannia vintage cycle festival and lots of well dressings.

Chelmorton is an ancient Derbyshire village renowned for the surrounding narrow strip fields bounded by limestone walls which trace the patterns of medieval farming methods. Today the fields enclose herds of nibbling sheep and grazing cows. As a conservation village, not on the way to anywhere, it is peaceful and safe. Very little traffic goes up and down the road and you are just as likely to see sheep being herded up the street or a few hens wandering about. There are no shops in the village, however the Church Inn (which serves good food) is just 2 minutes walk up the road. The picturesque dales of the rivers Wye, Lathkill, Dove and Derwent are all nearby. There are countless footpaths, bridleways and quiet lanes to explore and a selection of leaflets, brochures and maps at Swallow Barn can help you plan your day. Secure bicycle storage is available for your bikes at Swallow Barn. However if you prefer to hire bikes there is are excellent cycle hire centres just a few miles away on the Monsal Trail and Tissington Trail – former railway lines which offer miles of safe, traffic-free cycling.
