About Derbyshire

The County of Derbyshire is situated in the very heart of England. The 'Peak District', Englands first National Park spans over 500 square miles and is one of the most popular and stunning areas of natural beauty. Derbyshire is home to many wonderful Stately Homes such as Hardwick Hall and the Medieval Manor House, Haddon Hall.
With such varied landscape, such a richness of wildlife and such a wealth of cultural heritage no visitor can possibly be disappointed.
