Looked after by the National Trust, Longshaw is a wonderful place to discover spectacular views of the Peak District, ancient woods, parkland and heather moorland. Visit the tea room and shop for a cream tea or hearty meal (open 363 days/year), explore the estate's waymarked trails and natural play places, or join in a free guided walk or a National Trust event.

The spectacular White Edge Moor overlooks the Derwent Valley and forms part of the long gritstone edge stretching from Stanage towards Birchens Edge south of Chatsworth House. If you have time, discover the old quarry workings at Bole Hill.

A great place to go with some stunning views. We went on a snowy Sunday and loved it. the views are amazing, the walks are good and varied. Parking isn't expensive, which is unusual for these places All i would say, be aware if you are going to eat, the cafe is small, so seating may be difficult, but the... More

Very enjoyable walk starting from white peak edge through the Longshaw Estate. Absolutely great grub from the cafe (sausage butties) and the staff were more than polite. Looking forward to exploring more in the summer!

We were there on a dull January Saturday to give the children a bit of exercise exploring the boggarts. Not quite sure what they are really but the kids invented beings which certainly fitted the bill. We created a house for them with tree roots sticks and the choppings of Christmas trees. Wonderful exploration of imagination. The walk was excellent... More

We visit the park every week for a great outside space and activities for the kids. Beautiful setting. Cafe is mixed in quality and speed depending on custom levels. There is always a very long queue in peak times.

The Estate is just outside West Sheffield but you feel as if you are right in the middle of the Peak District National Park not just on the edge. A variety of decent circular walks and at the end of the walk a good cup of tea and scone in a great NT cafe with pleasant and helpful staff.

National Trust is very keen to attract families to its sites. The new car park is a big improvement. This is a wonderful area for walking. Grandchildren love scrambling on the rocks, walking down Padley Gorge, playing hide and seek etc. BUT not enough toilets and cafe is tiny. Come on National Trust if you want to attract families to...

A new car park certainly makes visiting this place easier (and safer) than it used to be. You can get a good scone at the cafe (except at busy times when the queue is ridiculously slow). The best thing is to avoid the usual car park - cafe - pond circuit and try some of the other routes. Can also... More
