Carsington Water for cycling, walking and watersports, Alton Towers for the more adventurous, Go Ape in Buxton, not forgetting the Georgian market town of Ashbourne...filled with independent retailers - great delis, butchers, Fresh Choice fruit and veg, fishmongers, clothes and antique shops - M&S Food, Sainsburys, Majestic Wine.

Simon and I moved back to Derbyshire from London 27 years ago - we absolutely love living here and relish being so close to Ashbourne. With three children (now all in their twenties) it has been a fabulous place to bring up children.
