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.

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.
