Many walks start from near the cafe. from a short family stroll to long walks for energetic hikers. A good place to get out and view the Derbyshire Moorland countryside. Cafe ideal for snack with tea/coffee. Toilets available. Parking chargeable for non Nation Trust members.

Hello there, the tea room and visitor centre is open to all. The benefits of National Trust membership include free parking and the chance to give back to the estate, but all are more than welcome to use the facilities.
