Why not coincide your visit with the world-famous International Hen Racing Championships on the first Saturday in August at The Barley Mow, BonsallBakewell Farmers Market;  just up the road from our showroom is a must for any foodie, it’s the second biggest in the country but it’s not about the quantity, it’s the quality. It’s always on the last Saturday of every month (check at Christmas time though).

Why not plan a visit to one of our historical and beautiful local towns…

Matlock Bath - a seaside-style town set in a stunning alpine valley

Matlock - a lovely spa town famous for its many antique and junk shops, cafes and mini-boating lake and outdoor play area in the peaceful Hall Leys Park.

Ashbourne - if more upmarket antiques are your thing then Ashbourne is the place to visit, plus it’s the gateway to the beautiful Dovedale walks.

Bakewell - famous for its Bakewell Pudding and beautiful town centre.

Places to stay in Near Matlock; we have numerous convenient hotels and B&B’s that would be delighted to welcome you!

Heritage & history your thing?

Well we have the incredible Chatsworth House a few miles up the road. Just taking a walk by the river is worth the trip alone but if you do have time looking around the house is a must. There’s also the twice winner of Best farm shop in Britain, Chatsworth Farm Shop, which is world renowned for its hampers and locally reared meats. There’s also Haddon Hall a couple of miles in the other direction. It’s Britain’s most complete (and still lived in!) medieval house. Have you ever seen the film The Princess Bride? Well Haddon Hall was Humperdinck’s Castle!

Like your real ale?

Derbyshire is the Real Ale capital of Britain, with numerous, unique and individual pubs nearby. We also have the nationally acclaimed Thornbridge Brewery a few miles down the road, go for a tour and sample a few of their freshly brewed, awarding winning ales at their characterful Tap Room - If you’re after a proper, Derbyshire pub with the real fire, great pub food and of course local ales then here are a few of the best pubs around…
