Start off the year with walks and outdoor family adventures in the Peak District.

Start off the year with family adventures, bracing walks and far reaching views in the Peak District. 


Family friendly walks

Ilam Park and Dovedale are ideal places for a short walk with children, dogs and winter picnics. Both areas are grazed by farm animals so you may come across muddy paths during your walk. Don't forget to look out for wildlife, fossils and opportunities to play pooh sticks.

Refuel in our cosy tea-room

An ideal way to warm up and refuel after a winter walk is with a visit to the Manifold Tea-room at Ilam Park. Open daily 10.30am - 4pm during the winter season, you'll find a wide selection of cakes, hot drinks, hot lunches and snacks.
