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.

This is a great place to come walking to. The walks are beautiful and not too challenging. As you would expect the place is very popular. We love this place and there are quite a number of walks. Today we parked at Stannage Edge and walked down to the Longshaw Estate. We had tea and cake at the great cafe... More

Great place. Loved the walks. We did 7 miles today. Some easy some uneven. Down by Burbage Brook is great for kids. Guess it's a great place for picnics in summer. We walked with two West highland terriers. Dogs are always welcomed. But have to be kept on an extendable leads due to the animals grazing and lambing.

Hi Janic, Thanks for your review and for sharing the information about keeping dogs on leads. I would just like to correct your comment (could have been a typo or otherwise misunderstanding) - dogs need to be kept on short 2m leads at this time of year (and until 31st July) rather than extendable leads, dues to sheep and cattle...

We love walking on Longshaw Estate - it is really beautiful, scenic and well maintained. However, I was really disappointed during my most recent visit during February half term. We visited the cafe, which we expected to be busy, for lunch. Surprisingly there were several free tables inside but unfortunately we then had to queue for more than 20 minutes... More

Just a warning for all Longshaw lovers. For three months from 16th March parking at the Fox House end will be difficult. The car park nearest the visitor centre is being closed for a major upgrade!

Beautiful easy, moderate and hard walks! Strongly recommend the Burbage Brook route as you walk alongside the stream - very pretty! Will definitely be returning in the future!

Free to park if national trust members. Great cafe but bit small as it does get very busy. Lots of different walks to do, so ideal for all ages and abilities. Lovely views of the hills, great place to wile away an afternoon.

Visit Fox House quite often at the weekends with my son for our dad/son hikes, have driven past the entrance to Longshaw hundreds of times and never actually been in.
