The Peak District National Park
Spanning parts of several counties in the heart of England, the Peak District is home to market towns, pretty villages and historic houses as well as famous attractions and traditional country events.
Daisy Bank Cottage near Buxton is in an outstanding location, surrounded by beautiful scenery and walks galore for all ages and abilities.
A visit to Poole’s Cavern and the surrounding Buxton Country Park to the south west of Buxton Centre below Grin Low and Grin Low Woods will provide a day full of activities for all the family. Poole’s Cavern is a 2 million year old natural phenomenon formed by the action of the river Wye on the limestone. The cavern is named for ‘The Robber Poole’ who is thought to have sheltered in the caves. During Roman times, the cave was used by a bronze craftsman who made brooches and other items there.
The surrounding area has plenty of walks along woodland trails and also a walk up to Solomon’s Tower, a brick, folly-esque tower re-built in 1896. On a clear day from the summit you can see the Mam Tor and Kinderscout, the highest point in the Peak District.
