Local Area

From outdoor pursuits to theatre events and family days out, our Peak District location has it all.

Browse the many antiques shops in the popular Staffordshire market town of Leek or enjoy a play or show at Buxton Opera House. The historic spa town of Buxton is also home to the annual Buxton Opera Festival and Festival Fringe, a full programme of opera, theatre, comedy, music and performance and one of the largest of its kind in the country.

The stately homes of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall are within easy driving distance of Gradbach, while sweet-toothed visitors can take a trip to the pretty Derbyshire town of Bakewell, home of the world famous pudding.

Meanwhile thrill-seekers can enjoy a day out at Alton Towers, which is a 40-minute drive away, or unleash their adventurous side with a treetop challenge at Go Ape in Buxton. Nature lovers can also visit Trentham Monkey Forest or Peak Wildlife Park – both great days out for all the family.
