the barns at alderlee textNestled in the verdant Meerbrook Valley in the Peak District, our former working farm takes full advantage of its precious location.

Alderlee is ideally located to explore some of the finest scenery and attractions of south Derbyshire, south Cheshire and north Staffordshire.

Our location on the very edge of the Peak National Park puts us within easy walking distance of The Roaches, a series of gritstone escarpments that mark the southern most tip of the Pennine chain. These spectacular rocks are popular with climbers and walkers alike. The Roaches was voted one of Britian's Top Ten Walks by the Sunday Telegraph, so visitors to Alderlee will definitely want to put their boots on and explore this stunning landmark.

Only a five minute walk away, our local village pub The Lazy Trout, serves traditional ales and home cooked food in front of a warm welcoming fire or when the sun is shining, in the garden with the Roaches as a stunning backdrop.

Just a short stroll across the fields is Tittesworth Water with its many water based activities such as: kayaking, canoeing and raft building. There is a visitor centre, lunchtime restaurant and a fantastic adventure playground to ensure a goodnight sleep for the children.

A short drive away is the Spa Town of Buxton with it's spectacular Opera House and renowned fresh water spring, or why not try the Moorland market town of Leek with its myriad antique shops.

For the young and young at heart there is always the lure of Alton Towers which is less than half an hour's drive away.
