Beautiful part of the Peaks with some magnificent views all around. So you have the viaduct, the River Wye, Quaint Cottages, woodland, and the Dales especially Cressbrook all on a sunny Sunday afternoon, couldn't think of a better way to while away a few hours,...More

Simply beautiful spot to stop and just drink up the views and tranquillity. Listen to the silence and try and spot the fish gilding by in the crystal clear water.

We were driving up to York from Bath and stopped by this picturesque village for lunch. What a visual treat! Clean air and good food. Worth it

Monsal Head is one of the finest view in the Peak Park. The view point looks down on a river valley and a railway viaduct. That doesn't sound inspiring but see it for yourself. If your fit there are many walks in the area.

A better bet would be to park in Baslow and walk around the Chatsworth estate. That's better for pushchairs and there are several excellent pubs and restaurants in Baslow.
