1. Elvaston Country Park
Surrounded by over 200 acres of woodland, parkland and formal gardens (which are best suited to a quiet on-the-lead stroll), Elvaston Country Park is a paradise for the public to enjoy. At the heart of the estate is Elvaston Castle – a Gothic Revival masterpiece built in the 1800s.
2. Lathkill Dale
Renowned for its famous ‘disappearing river’, interesting geological features and abundance of flora and fauna, Lathkill Dale is one of the finest limestone dales and an area of outstanding natural beauty. For dogs that love to take a dip, the River Lathkill is renowned for its crystal-clear waters.
3. Cromford Canal
The flat and tranquil canal path, dotted with benches and wildlife-watching points, is ideal for a gentle walk. The route stretches for just over five miles and begins at Cromford Wharf, near the famous mills of Richard Arkwright, passing High Peak Junction and Leawood Pumphouse (operating on selected dates), through Gregory Tunnel and past Whatstandwell Bridge to Ambergate.
