There are also linked routes offering a further 13 miles on the Tissington Trail towards picturesque Ashbourne. For those wishing longer trips Middleton Top is the start of the Pennine Bridleway, a 205 mile adventure for walkers, horse riders & mountain bikers following old packhorse routes, drovers roads & newly created bridleways. The area offers superb walking and the owners can offer advice on a wide range of walks from the cottage suitable for all abilities. Nearby is the famous Carsington Water providing a number of watersport activities, interesting walks and bridle paths and some excellent bird watching around the reservoir.
Only 1/2 mile away from the cottage is the National Stone Centre and Derbyshire Eco Centre. The fascinating and ancient town of Wirksworth is less than one mile away and offers a variety of restaurants, pubs, cafes and shops. Its popular arts festival in September and open garden display in June are well worth visiting. Within the area and only a short drive is the pretty market town of Bakewell with many shops, bars, restaurants and cafes. It has a lovely meandering river, ideal for a stroll through the town and a  weekly market selling local produce. The stately home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, Chatsworth House, Gardens and Park is close by and has some stunning scenery and amazing historic artifacts. Haddon Hall is just outside Bakewell and well worth a visit to appreciate the fabulous gardens. A great location in a relaxing, tranquil position.
