“The most amazing walk”
Review of Longshaw Estate

Longshaw Estate
Certificate of Excellence

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.

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 craggy hills, monolithic boulders, old billy goat gruff style bridges, pine forests and a whole lot more.
We totally loved our walk around the Longshaw Estate.

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 pint. Great to visit in summer or winter.

Lovely views, great place for a gentle walk, parking, cafe and toilets what more could you need? Two minutes away you will find The Fox House Pub which also serves meals and is very popular with walkers.

We are lucky to live close by to this National Trust facility and often visit the cafe after a walk around the Estate. The scones are baked daily and I would go so far as to say they are the best in Sheffield/Derbyshire. No microwaving of these scones - they are always fresh and crispy. The other dishes are always nice and they tend to use, where possible, ingredients grown in the Estate garden. The coffee is good too and all the food is very reasonable and the staff are young and helpful.
