PeakDistrict Cheshire’s


Brimming with breath-taking scenery, dramatic landscapes, and world class events, Cheshire’s Peak District delights just about everybody. It’s also got an abundance of fresh air, history, heritage, and beautiful gardens. We take a peek at this refreshingly different part of Cheshire and enjoy a sensational short break.


Ranging from Lyme Park and the hills above Buxton in the north to Biddulph’smoorlands in the south, Cheshire’s Peak District is an area of truly natural beauty.


It covers nearly 100 square miles of the Peak District National Park, so there’s plenty to entertain your whole family.


The Great Escape


Enjoy the stunning scenery and wildlife of Cheshire’s Peak District on foot. Explore wild moorlands, walk rocky ridges or simply take in the spectacular views with hundreds of walks to suit all ages and abilities.


Hike up to White Nancy; the iconic Grade


II listed folly that dominates the Cheshire Plain.


Let your imagination run wild with a walk through the legend-filled woods of Alderley Edge to Stormy Point, the setting for Alan Garner's novel The Weirdstone of Brisingamen.


Stride out along the Gritstone Trail, a 35 mile route that stretches from Disley to Kidsgrove and features some of the finest views and ridge walking in Cheshire. The trail is split into three parts; each can be covered in a day by fairly fit walkers.


Prefer to pedal? Exploring the area by bike has never been easier, from canal towpaths and gentle inclines, to serious down-hills and awesome off-roading.


The Cheshire Cycleway follows a 176 mile route through the mill village of Bollington, into Cheshire’s Peak District and over the heights to Wildboarclough and Macclesfield Forest.


Amazing Attractions


The area is home to the stately estates of Tatton Park and Arley Hall. Visit one of the many renowned National Trust properties including Dunham Massey, Little Moreton Hall, Lyme Park or Quarry Bank Mill.


Alternatively, come face to face with cutting edge science at Jodrell Bank and marvel at the giant Lovell telescope.


Green fingered gardening fanatics will be thrilled by the impressive range of the many stunning Gardens of Distinction. The gardens are a ‘must see’ at any time of year - the delightful snowdrop and bluebell walks are well worth a visit; Rode Hall and Capesthorne Hall should not be missed.
