We are well situated at the entrance to the Peak District and have numerous places to visit.

Ashbourne is the nearest town from Peak Gateway with cobbled streets and welcoming Market place. Ashbourne has a variety of different shops, pubs and restaurants. If you fancy a swim or an exercise class why not try Ashbourne Leisure center with Indoor pool and gym.

Escape to the fabulous world of the Alton Towers Resort - there's so much going on, the fun never stops! You can splash yourself silly in the wacky water park, be pampered from head to toe in the spa and play a round of extraordinary Golf. Dine out at the Rollercoaster Restaurant take a ride in the sky ride and see the wonderful gardens of Alton Towers and don't forget to check out the amazing live shows too.

Gulliver’s Kingdom Matlock Bath

Specially designed for young children ages 2-13.  Gulliver’s Kingdom has a wide range of rides and attractions from Western World to Toyland.

The National Tramway Museum lets you take a step back in time and ride one of the vintage trams heading out into the open countryside aboard one of many different vintage trams. Take a look in the Great Exhibition Hall which takes you on a fascinating journey from 1860-1960 showing the years of tramway developments from horse trams to electric Trams.
