About the neighborhood
The village of Earl Sterndale is home to the 'famous' Quiet Woman Pub (no food but great beer). It is also set in the heart of the Peak District close to Chrome Hill, Parkhouse & Roundhill which are fantastic walking areas. The nearest village shop is located approx 2-3 miles away in the village of Longnor. Public transport is available to Buxton and Ashbourne. The village of Castleton famous for the Blue John Stone, Speedwell Cavern & Peveril Castle. Local Market towns are Bakewell, Buxton & Ashbourne. Other local attractions include Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall which are approx 20 minutes drive away. Other activities to enjoy such as cycling, mountain biking & caving just to name a few!!
Getting around
A car is recommended but there is a bus route (442) through the village going to Buxton and Ashbourne. There is a train service in Buxton (about 5 miles away) or Macclesfield (about 14 miles).

If people want to visit the area without a car, I will, whenever possible, offer to pick up and / or drop off at Buxton. Please ask for more information.
