Winter wanders in the White Peak
Bracing winter walks to blow the cobwebs away can be discovered when exploring Ilam Park, Dovedale and the White Peak through the colder months. Visitors will be rewarded with quiet landscapes and cool, crisp air to leave you feeling inspired and energised.
Ilam Park - 'a very good place to start'
Ilam Park makes an ideal base to ease you gently into exploring what the Peak District National Park has to offer, with many easy to follow routes beginning from the Italian Gardens located near the stableyard. You can either plan your walk using an OS map, download our map of the site here or click here for some of our downloadable walks.
Reconnect to nature
In this uncertain times, our outdoor spaces have provided a much needed place to escape the 'new normal' that we have come to find ourselves in, so take the time to cherish the time spent with your nearest and dearest and notice the nature all around you. The hustle and bustle can wait, savour mindful moments, picture perfect pauses and memories made in the beautiful countryside
Safeguard these precious places by taking all litter home, keeping dogs on leads to keep wildlife, livestock and other visitors safe from disturbance, be kind to others you meet along the way and be respectful of our local communities by parking responsibly and safely.
A brew to roam with
Our Stableyard Grab and Go is open Monday - Sunday 10am - 4pm serving hot and cold drinks, pasty of the day and sausage rolls served cold, scoop ice cream and other snacks. We are now able to safely accept your reusuable cups for any hot beverage, so please remember to bring this with you. Keep the the Peak District countryside a thriving haven for nature and for people by taking all litter home. Every warming drink enjoyed and every pasty devoured, directly helps to support our vital conservation work across the White Peak estate - thank you.
