Derbyshire is a scenic county in the UK which has inspired our writers to share their personal travel stories and places of interest. The Peak District National Park covers a large area of the county with cycling trails, walking opportunities as well as hills and valleys to explore. Hiking trails are varied from the easier range, through to the more difficult levels of accessibility and ability. One of the better-known elevations there is the beautiful and rugged Kinder Scout plateau where the views are stunning and the scenery is rough and rocky. If easier paths and more genteel places are more your destination then Hope valley and Castleton may be of interest where there are caves to visit, more history to discover at Peveril castle at Cave Dale, in these idyllic villages and great walking, blue John Jewelry and old English pubs.
The Derbyshire dales is another large area of natural beauty, which our writers will agree is a stunning place for walks and views, stone walled fields and history combine with myths and legends to intrigue and inspire walking and adventure for great days out.
