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.

    Perfect secluded location

    We really liked our cottage. A perfect secluded location. We prefer cottages that are in rural parts of the country for good walks.

    Lovely welcome

    We love this pre-Christmas break, it's the perfect get-away to spend time with family. There are lots of great walks from the cottage door or a short drive away - such as Dovedale - perfect for the children and dog. We've been coming to Wetton Mill for over 10 years, before we had children and since, and it's still a great holiday. Lots of nice pubs around, outings such as Chatsworth, Bakewell, Buxton Pantomine and just relaxing in the cottage with the log burner on & Christmas film. The enclosed garden was good for the dog who also loved paddling in the river. The children love the freedom to run around in lots of space and see some hills! The welcome from the caretaker is excellent, so is the cottage location and facilities.
