Fantastic location. We did 3 short walks with our kids (ages 4 & 11) from the cottage: to Hayfield (good playground), a roundabout walk up toward South Head and ending at the Traveller Rest pub (delicious lunch), and up to the reservoir. Also many opportunities for longer walks and trail runs which my husband and I took advantage of. Good days out Read morenearby in Buxton and Castleton too, both about 30 minutes away by car.
