Owner description: 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.

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. The wife took the kids on a Halloween walk with friends last week during half term and they were desperate for me to do it with them so we went... More

Longshaw Estate is a family favourite. The visitor centre cafe does lovely scones, even if the ladies are a little short when you come near to closing time. The cottage garden is a nice way to see what is in season and some of the produce is used in the cafe kitchen. There are so many walks here that in... More

The walks around Longshaw are amazing, it's so quiet and the scenery is great! It attracts couples, solos, families and teens! It's an easy hike and the cafe is beautiful, we had hot chocolate and scones and not only was it reasonably priced, friendly staffed and incredibly views, it was probably the best scone I've had! Parking is good but... More

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
