Things to do

Well where do we start?  Sheriff Lodge is situated in the Heart of the Derbyshire Dales at the southern end of the Peak District National Park (the second most visited National Park in the world - outside of Mount Fuji in Japan)

This means that there is so much to do around here you'll need weeks to do it all - we've been here years and still haven't seen it all

Chatsworth House
A stunning stately home occupied buy the Duke & Duchess of Devonshire - less than 15 minutes away. You'll need a weekend to do it justice. The house is amazing but in addition there is a vast estate to explore, a top notch Garden Centre, an appetite stimulating Farm Shop - like Fortnum & Mason on speed - and a children's play area with working farm and adventure playground
If you wish to visit this National Treasure then please let us know as we have discount tickets available that will save you 3 per person on the entry price

Haddon Hall
An ancient house relatively untouched since Henry VIII's day. Set in beautiful surroundings it is less than ten minutes away from our front door.
The highlight is a glorious 14th Century Banqueting Hall complete with minstrels' gallery but there is also a fine oak panelled room with miniature portraits of Henry VII and his Queen, a Tudor period Long Gallery (from which Dorothy Vernon is said to have eloped with her lover, Lord Edward Manners), and some fine gardens

Walking and Hiking
Sheriff Lodge is in a prime position to enable all you walkers out there - from long distance specialists to short pub strollers - to take real advantage of the Dark and the White Peaks. 
We have several walks that you can do right from our front door - or, with a little driving, or judicious use of the public transport system that we have in Derbyshire (click here to visit the Derbyshire Journey Planner)- you can take advantage of a superb 25 mile White Peak Challenge developed by John Merrill.
Sheriff Lodge is also amply supplied with maps, guides and even waterproofs. 
If you come back wet then we can get all your gear dried in our drying room!

You can also click here to see all of the guided and organised walks that are taking place here in the Peak District in 2005
