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

We have no idea what the hills and valleys of this walk are called as we didn't have a guide book, but let the scenery guide you and you will not be disappointed. We took our two dogs and 8 year old son and had the best 2 hours of strenuous exercise I can remember. The backdrop was spectacular, with... More

Park in the shade under trees and then enjoy a lovely, long walk to the café. Dogs must be kept on leash as calves wander free (at least when we were there). Even though the car park was packed, we still felt like hardly anyone was there. Free parking for National Trust members.

We can be at Longshaw within 15 mins, so it's our regular countryside walk stop. Nice and flat so good for all age groups. Lovely views and you can take various routes depending how long you would like your walk to be. Near both the Fox House pub and The Grouse Inn, so plenty of scope for an after/mid walk... More
