“Great flat walking” 5 of 5 bubbles
Review of Longshaw Estate

Longshaw Estate
Certificate of Excellence
More attraction details
Attraction details
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.

“A Great place to unwind”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2012

Living in Sheffield we often go out to Longshaw to get away and unwind. There is everything from a gentle short walk followed by tea and a cake, or a more extensive days excursion. The views are always stunning and it is never the same twice. We love it!

“My favorite walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2012

We have been here dozens of time and always enjoy it. Busy at weekends but if you walk away from cafe/shop it soon gets quieter. Lovely views. Toilets at shop. We often walk down to Grindleford station and have a bacon sandwich at the greasy spoon there, then walk back through Padley woods. In the summer it is lovely to sit by the stream ( often quite crowded though) for a picnic. There is usually an icecream van on the road for a last treat as you walk back through the estate to the car.
Pay and display car park, free to national trust members
