Site Spotlight – Peak District

Site spotlight Peak District

This week our site spotlight Peak District shines on The Ladybower Inn which will most certainly give you a view to awake to.  Set in beautiful surroundings in the middle of the Peak District National Park, this pub has a large flat car park with great views overlooking Win Hill and the Ladybower reservoir.

Whilst there is a £20 charge for overnight parking, if you eat or drink in the pub, simply register your number plate at the bar and it’s free. Please phone ahead if wishing to stopover.

A village was flooded when the Ladybower reservoir was formed and if you visit after a dry spell in the summer look out for the church spire which can still be seen above the water. Keep a look out as you enjoy one of these local walks:

Ladybower Reservoir
The 5 mile walk around the Ladybower Reservoir is perfect for experienced hikers and novice walkers alike. With views of the reservoir itself, Derwent Valley Aqueduct & Bamford Edge, it will take your breath away.

Derwent Valley
Fancy something a bit more challenging? Head north-west along the east bank of the Ladybower Reservoir then at Hancock Wood, ascend up onto Lost Lad Cairn and follow Derwent Edge back to The Ladybower Inn.

A couple more recommendations for exploring the region include:

A visit to Chatsworth House and surrounding park is a must – consider overnight stops at either Chatsworth Park or if you fancy a pub stopver then The Wheatsheaf in Baslow is within walking distance.

This guide provides a comprehensive read of What to do in the Peak District such as the fantastic off road Monsal Trail.
