We are situated at the heart of the Peak District. With amazing views and well-kept paths, this is a walker’s paradise. We can recommend good walks nearby, but if you want to find your own, take a look at some of these websites:

Limestone Way (a famous walk which passes right by Highfield)
Monsal Trail (a nearby walk following the route of a disused railway line)

Local festivals and events

Buxton Festival (annual music, opera and arts festival in Buxton)
Buxton Fringe Festival (runs at the same time as the main festival)
