Advice on Cottage Holidays in Hartington

For those looking for an active self-catering holiday, there are excellent walking opportunities in the valley. Walking and cycling are popular along trails that were formerly railway tracks. The National Cycle Network passes through the village and can be joined and left at various points. Rock climbers go to Manifold Valley and Dovedale for a tough challenge on the limestone. Hang gliders and paragliders can find places to indulge their passions too. If you like to relax by doing a bit of fishing, the River Dove is known for its bounty. You may be inspired to know that the famous authority on angling, Izaak Walton, wrote his book, ‘the Complete Angler’ whilst in the area.

Shops, pubs and tea rooms serve the village well and include a specialist cheese shop selling local cheese. Making cheese has been a tradition in these parts for many years. Whilst enjoying a cottage holiday in the village don’t miss the attractive old market place. Also worth a visit is St. Giles, the village church, an attractive building made from local sandstone, mainly built in the 1200s and 1300s. For railway enthusiasts, the signal box at the disused railway station is of interest. It has been lovingly preserved and is a visitor centre today.

Also to be found in the area, are various Stone Age monuments. Arbor Low is reputed to be the best example in the whole of northern England. Dated as being approximately 5,000 years old, from Neolithic times, the circular arrangement comprises stones lying flat to the ground, rather than the usual upright construction.

When enjoying a self-catering break in this part of the Peak District Park, you will benefit from being close to the beautiful Dovedale Valley, offering you access to what many regard as the most beautiful scenery in Derbyshire. It’s not surprising that it’s the most visited area in the Peak District. Owned and protected mainly by the National Trust, Dovedale is also much valued for its diversity of flora and fauna.

One of the most celebrated villages in the dale is Tissington. It is here where the first well dressings took place, a tradition that spread to other parts of Derbyshire, attracting visitors from far and wide. It’s a picture postcard village, complete with duck pond and Jacobean Mansion, we recommend that you visit for a day trip when enjoying a cottage holiday in Hartington.
