This is a lovely walk, followed by a visit to WW1 memorial. We visited in September when it was possibly past its best, but well worth it.

Quiet walks, beautiful lake, really beautiful, can go boat riding too. Pretty sure you can walk through this wood, right through to Matlock village, just a 5 mile walk.

Lovely area to explore walking up and around the river area. Parks and formal gardens stretch along the river giving plenty to explore for children and adults alike. The illuminations are held at the furthest most end during the Sept/Oct period.
