Many of Derbyshire’s most desirable living locations such as Bakewell, Buxton, Castleton, and picturesque villages like Tissington, Edale, and Hathersage, lie within the UK’s first National Park’s boundaries, providing plentiful opportunities for stunning hikes and outdoor activities.

There are also many options for those looking for a thrill, from experiencing the exhilaration of driving a supercar at Donington racetrack, to hang-gliding at Derbyshire Flying Centre and exploring the underground cave network of the Peak District -there is something for everyone. Alton Towers, the UK’s biggest theme park, is also just 45 minutes away.

Towns such as Chesterfield are often referred to as a ‘gateway to the North’, with neighbouring Sheffield just a 15-minute train journey away. Major cities such as Nottingham, Leicester, Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham are all in commutable distance, meaning you’re never too far from where you need to be.
