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.

We almost didn't visit today (a sunny Saturday) because in the past if you didn't arrive at the crack of sparrow cough it was tricky getting parked if the sun was shining; we were going to try it...

Having been to many nt properties we found the longshaw estate to be beautiful but because of the slow work on the main car park we had to use one of the alternative car parks. Many of the trails that are sign posted where not clear so you end up walking in a direction will no clear sign posting to... More

Thank you for your review of your recent visit to Longshaw. We are happy to tell you that the main car park is now open again, and are sorry to hear that the signage we have had up between the Wooden Pole car park and the Lodge and tea-room weren't effective for you when you visited. We'll be reviewing how... More

Great for a day out walking in the fresh air, the estate at Fox House gives access the the Derbyshire moorland and is certainly worth a visit.

My husband and I joined a guided walk at Longshaw on May 13. Although it was difficult to find where to park, Graham and Chris (and other walkers) were welcoming to these Americans and shared much natural and historical information.

The cafe was a lunch stop while walking from Hathersage to Baslow via Stanage Edge, Froggatt Edge and Curbar Edge. Superb walking with great views. Good toasties and delicious date slices. Outside seating with great views.

I had a little trouble finding the car park as the main entrance is being redone although it will be open soon. The cafe scones were lovely and the Kitchen Garden is worth a peak. I enjoyed doing the easy route walk this visit but I must make sure I go again soon.

Never been here before. Enjoyed an excellent walk round the property, and the moors. Good walk leaflet. Not enough explanation about what the NT is now doing with the actual Longshaw Lodge. Rather busy by the gorge area- but it was a Saturday when we visited. Interesting guide produced by the Trust, and good refreshments at the Trust's visitor centre.

This is a great place for families and couples both young and mature. Plenty of space to explore with padley gorge a favourite amongst children as they enjoyed picnics and paddling in the stream, a variety of clear pathways to follow and for the more energetic some superb public footpaths leading to burbage rocks and higgor tor with great views...

There are lots of walks here to suit everyone in beautiful countryside. The cafe is great too for toasties, cakes and other snacks/meals. Staff were friendly and the food was good.
