We have looked after this lovely area for over 100 years. From the high moorland of the Dark Peak Estate on the Yorkshire-Derbyshire border to the gentler rolling landscapes of south Derbyshire, we now care for some 40,000 acres of wild natural beauty. Staying here brings you close to some incredible wildlife, like white mountain hares and wild kestrels, as well as glimpses into our fascinating industrial past.

With its spectacular and contrasting scenery, the Peak District is a region of outstanding natural beauty and one of Britain's loveliest National Parks. The National Trust has been hard at work here for over 100 years and now cares for some 40,000 acres. High Peak Estate is the largest estate, over 33,000 acres of high moorland straddling the Yorkshire-Derbyshire border. Although only ten miles from the centre of Sheffield, the Longshaw Estate boasts more than 1,700 acres of open moorland, gritstone edges and ancient oak woodland, while the 4,400 acre South Peak Estate lies in the magnificent limestone hills, centred upon the well-known beauty spots of Ilam and Dovedale. On the foothills of the Peak District, Lyme Park contains an Italianate mansion and Victorian garden surrounded by a medieval deer park of almost 1,400 acres.Hardwick Hall is ideally situated for exploring the Peak District, while the gentler landscapes of South Derbyshire contain pretty village and bustling market towns. The area is steeped in history with ancient castles, grand houses and sites that reveal the ingenuity of our industrial past.

    Good size!

    Made enjoyable by the size and spaciousness of High Hazels. The nearness to the Old and New Halls. The nearness to and quality of food in the restaurant. Access to the grounds when the house were closed on Monday.

    Practically perfect

    We were returning to High Hazels. We enjoyed it the two times we've stayed before. But now with the new café open and the property's new kitchen this was practically perfect.

    Stunning location

    The cottages I use are always of a good consistent standard with lovely furniture particularly sofa's - so many cottages in other I use have sofa's / chairs that look as if they have been raided from an old people's home!. Kitchens well equipped in stunning locations. Local support staff friendly and helpful.
