Spring is in the air – make the most of the beautiful Derbyshire scenery at these stunning locations.
Spring has finally sprung! Lighter mornings and sunnier days (fingers crossed) are just around the corner. Make the most out of your Spring by visiting these beautiful spots.
1. Robin Wood, South Derbyshire near Ticknall
The main track through this wood is suitable for cyclists too. With woodpeckers, tree-creepers and buzzards there’s plenty of wildlife to enjoy.
Got any little ones who are a big fan of animals? Plan a family day out at Matlock Farm Park.
2. Stanton Moor, Stanton Lees near Matlock
With the warmer weather, the heather on the Moore bursts into flower creating an amazing sea of purple. Don’t forget to check out the famous Nine Ladies Stone Circle whilst you’re there which dates all the way back to the Bronze Age.
3. Mam Tor, Castleton
How could we have a list of Derbyshire walks without including Mam Tor?
Walk to the top of Mam Tor and you’ll be rewarded with one of the best viewpoints in Derbyshire, looking out over the gorgeous Peak District landscape below.
4. Ilam Park, Ashbourne
On the lookout for lambs? Walk across the fields from Park Ilam to Dovedale and you’ll see plenty of lambs with their mothers. Be sure to wear your wellies as the fields can get muddy.
