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 the main longshaw estate area and walk in, as you end up with the more remote areas to yourselves with only the central part near the teashop and top of padley gorge getting crowded.
Have eaten at the teashop which is OK, especially the view, but prefer to use the facilities just outside the estate, Grouse Inn good for pub meals and a nice Suntrap to sit out at the back, and the cafe at Grindleford station at the bottom of padley gorge is great for no nonsense food, although you should expect beautiful decor, but does offer great value.
