Winter walks in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire

Take a bracing winter walk at one of our places this month. Explore parkland, woodland, or the wild Peak District, and take in some breathtaking scenery. We recommend wrapping up warm and wearing sturdy boots or wellies. Afterwards, you can treat yourself to a hot drink and bite to eat at one of our restaurants or tea-rooms. There's a walk here for you - whether you are looking for adventure, or a gentle stroll with family.
