We used to live nearby but since moving elsewhere we possibly appreciate it even more. There was maintenance being carried out on the water supply when we arrived, affecting the café and toilets but the staff were excellent in dealing with this and had made provisions for drinks even though the full list could not be offered. The walks around... More

The beauty of Longshaw is its surroundings. The variety of countryside - hills, woods, fields of sheep and cows, moorland, streams, disused quarries and breathtaking views - is amazing especially as they're all to be had so close to the focal point of the car parks, visitor centre and cafe. The wildlife is also great - over this summer I've... More

I walk at Longshaw nearly every week...it is beautiful....great for kids to climb rocks and scramble over streams etc. Lots of coded walks to follow and plenty of serious walks too. Need to keep dogs on leads as loads of sheep! I feel comfortable to do a 10 mile walk around this estate on my own with two small dogs... More

This is very much a photographers heaven and there's plenty of free roadside parking just up from Grindleford station due to the fact it's not over commercialised like some areas. You can get a much needed coffee and food at the station and Padley Gorge is a short walk from there. The Gorge is very pretty and ideal for the... More

There are lots of wonderful places to visit in the peak district, but the longshaw estate is probably my favourite because of the variety of different landscapes and the wonderful views which continually change. You have moorland, semi open woodland and dense woodland, as well as nice streamdside walks above and down padley gorge. I tend to park just outside... More

There are lots of walk attached to the Longshaw Estate. You can either opt for a stroll around or a slightly more adventurous one depending on your willingness/ability. Which ever you chose you will be awarded with stunning views and landscapes. To top it all you will be rewarded with a fantastic "cuppa" at the National Trust cafe - a... More

Had a lovely day out in the sunshine. Different routes to take depending on level of difficulty and duration required. Magnificent views of the peak district and lots of places to stop for a picnic. There is a lovely cafe with both indoor and outdoor seats - great if you have a dog! Area?my enjoyable day, will be visiting again!

what better place to visit, even on a dull day the views are still amazing. Other than the Yorkshire Dales this is a most spectacular area of the country. Visited the National Trust Shop / café, can not say I was impressed. I think that the shop area took up more valuable space that would be better used by the... More

Visited today for the first time. We came for the half term tracker trail which was pretty disappointing. You had to pay £1 for a map which was difficult to read and the trail wasn't really long enough. There is, however, some better colour coded trails to follow. There are also plenty of geocaches to find. There is a very... More
