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.

Owned by the National Trust, this is a wonderful place to visit, especially when the rhododendrons are in full bloom. There are many walks, the scenery is magnificent and there is a small cafe, picnic tables and toilets. There is a small charge for the car park unless you are a National Trust member but no other charges to enjoy... More

Great place to have a walk. Scenes are breath taking. Take your Dog, but needs to be kept on a lead. In nice weather this place gets busy. Cafe as always with National Trust is nice, but a little pricey!

Went for a stroll and lunch. Have walked this area before and from here you can do some good walks outside the estate.

Recently I visited here with my family. We were amazed at how clean the place was considering how busy it was. When we arrived, we found that there was a variety of different walks to do which was great as some of us could walk further than others, so it made our choice of where to walk easier. There are...

Brilliant place for a very easy short circular walk (2.5 miles) good paths for pushchairs etc Lovely cafe food until 3pm, views over the countryside. Interesting woodland walk for children, tadpoles in shallow stream, ice cream van on road, pub opposite car park. River walk after the pond. Stunning. Free National Trust map. £2.60 to park 4hrs. Very large car... More

Last week, while on holiday in the Peak District, I persuaded a somewhat reluctant husband to take part in a guided walk on the Longshaw Estate. It proved to be fabulous, with a lovely, friendly leader and an equally lovely accompanying volunteer. We saw things we'd never have found, such as the ice house and the plunge pool, and were...

A lovely walk (we did the shortest option), through very varied environments. Lots of trees for clambering, our kids disappeared into the undergrowth like a pack of Labradors, occasionally emerging to check back in with the grown-ups.

The kids loved running jumping climbing and exploring. Stunning scenery en route and just room to stretch and run. We love it here. Thoroughly recommend for a family ramble.

There is no doubt that Longshaw Estate is a great place to visit and I have been many times. I always use the cafe and the food is excellent, especially the home made soup. The reason for my 'poor' rating is because the staff need both training and organising. They are quite young and it seems that nobody is in... More
