We’ve 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.

    Made enjoyable....

    The house and its setting, the long walks on the estate, how well the house was equipped. We liked being able to call in at the Hardwick Arms - just the once! It was good to sit outside. We loved having a cake to eat on arrival! The gardens out of opening hours felt magical and we much enjoyed the games laid out in the stable yard. It was luxury to be able to have food delivered. We were a mixed party, from 70's to age 11 and we all enjoyed it. There was something for everyone.

    Made special by:

    Staying in the grounds of the magnificent Hardwick Hall and after hours access to the gardens. All the staff and volunteers were friendly and helpful, particularly the leader of the cleaning team.

    Made special by:

    The location, amenaties, food at the lHardwick inn, kitchen.. everything was just what we had hoped for... again just one thing that would be a massive + would be to have free wifi We were greeted with a wonderful cake made at the Barn restaurant and it was fantastic, a lovely touch. The location and amenaties were perfect as we all live up and down the country. It was great to have clean sheets and towels. There is only one thing that I would change and that is to offfer free Wifi.. that is a massive + and we had to nip over to the restaurant to get online.

    the 'whole picture' being so close to the hall and after-hours access to the gardens the cake left for us - was unexpected and very very lovely

    Beautiful Setting

    It was a beautiful setting, and we went round Hardwick Hall and visited the shop, and everywhere was well decorated and staff were very welcoming.
