Hope Valley in the Peak District has even more to offer than picture perfect scenery, friendly locals and historical places; it’s also one of the most exciting, vibrant and fun areas to visit as it’s full of fantastic family days out, events, festivals, attractions and plenty of activities!
Whether you prefer quiet, relaxing holidays, family fun or a thrill-seeking break, Hope Valley is the place for you.
There is an abundance of breathtaking scenery and beautiful valleys and gorges, so relax and soothe away all those worries. You will feel as though you are a million miles away from work!
Why not visit Castleton, widely regarded as one of the most beautiful villages in the area and, if you brave the steep climb to the top of 11th Century Peveril Castle, you will find the view below both staggering and inspirational.
Families will find something for children of every age, and lots to keep the adults entertained too! Our caves and mines are full of wonder and majesty; our museums will educate and amaze and our country parks and walks will make sure that children burn off all that energy. You are never too far away from a coffee shop in the Hope Valley, and a cup of tea and a delicious home-made cake or scone never tastes better than after a long walk.
Just outside the Hope Valley, in Bakewell, is Chatsworth House. Marvel at the spectacular waterworks and enjoy the trailer discovery tours and nature trails, which are designed to be family friendly. Children can really go wild at the adventure playground and, at certain times, they can even get involved with the animals.
Sports-mad visitors will be spoiled for choice, with cycling tracks taking you all over our beautiful countryside and plenty of daring sports in Hope Valley and the surrounding area, such as caving, paragliding, skydiving, water-sports and so much more! Mam Tor is extremely popular with hang-gliders and paragliders and the area is dotted with caves, making it a treasure trove for potholers and cavers wishing to explore our unique underground tunnels and caverns. There are even boat trips along an underground river.
As a holiday destination the Hope Valley has everything you could wish for; fine foods, ancient and historical sites, stately homes, inspiring locations, adrenalin fuelled sports, shopping and country parks.
