Monyash is a small, peaceful village situated in the heart of the southern Peak District National Park. Sheldon House & Barn are a great base for walking and cycling, or exploring nearby towns such as Bakewell, Buxton and Ashbourne, as well as many other Peak District attractions.
Sheldon House is ideally situated for anyone who enjoys walking and cycling, with the Limestone Way and the Peak Pilgrimage both passing through Monyash. Lathkill Dale and the Tissington and High Peak railway trails are also close by, offering superb off-road cycling and walking, with many other footpaths and bridleways in the area.
Bakewell, Buxton Spa Town and Opera House, Ashbourne, Haddon Hall, Chatsworth House, Ilam Park, Eyam Plague Village and Dovedale are all within half an hour’s drive (or a slightly longer bike ride!)
A bit farther afield are Peak Wildlife Park at Leek (30 minutes); Alton Towers (40 mins); the Potteries in Stoke-on-Trent (1 hour); the Heights of Abraham, Gulliver’s Kingdom and Matlock Farm Park, at Matlock (30 mins); Edale, the Blue John Cavern and the Kinder Scout National Nature Reserve (45 mins) - and lots of other opportunities to enjoy the beauty and attractions of this part of the country.
