Looked after by the National Trust, Longshaw is a wonderful place to discover spectacular views of the Peak District, ancient woods, parkland and heather moorland. Visit the tea room and shop for a cream tea or hearty meal (open 363 days/year), explore the estate's waymarked trails and natural play places, or join in a free guided walk or a National Trust event.

The spectacular White Edge Moor overlooks the Derwent Valley and forms part of the long gritstone edge stretching from Stanage towards Birchens Edge south of Chatsworth House. If you have time, discover the old quarry workings at Bole Hill.

I have been to Longshaw countless times over the years and the scenery never fails to leave an impression. On this occasion (a cold day in early April) we used the Wooden Pole car park (like the new convenient pay stations which allow for free parking if you're NT members and it's dead easy to use) and enjoyed an easy...

As National Trust members we parked for free and enjoyed a fantastic walk. There are well-marked paths and we took the easy, circular route. Lovely cup of tea in the cafe. It was a little cramped, but we did pick a busy time to visit. (Easter weekend) Once we set off on our walk it was so quiet and peaceful... More

We visited over an Easter weekend and parked in the Longshaw car park for convenience in order to go out walking for the day around Burbage Edge. The National Trust car park costs £4 to non-member visitors and the card reader seems to break down (sod's law) during busy holiday periods/weekends so make sure you have lots of change! The...

Thanks for your review. It's great to hear you've enjoyed coming to Longshaw and the surrounding moors and also really positive to see visitors sharing your message about the need for dogs to be kept on leads while we have sheep and ground nesting birds on the estate. We have a sign for gates, leaflets, posters, website articles and lots... More

I try to understand the reasons for poor reviews. Comments about the café and facilities are out of place for the building is what it is and the have made the best of what they have.

Nice walks of different grades across different types of terrain plus clean air and decent cup of tea at the cafe. National Trust members get free parking.

Absolutely gorgeous views and beautiful surroundings. Ideal place for a family walk. Good paths and not too hilly, gentle slopes so great for many ages. Our youngest was 5 and the oldest walker was 79! Nice tea room. Friendly staff. Highly recommend for a great accessible walk of 1-2 miles around Padley Gorge.

I went with a friend from the National Trust Longshaw Estate to Grindleford Station Cafe and back. It was a beautiful day. We walked on the path alongside the Brook which meant watching out for tree roots and boulders, but the views were stunning. There was a really well patronised Ice Cream van at the top of the Brook.

We enjoyed a sunny afternoon following two of the signposted walking tails round this former shooting estate. Most intriguing for me was walking on the ancient paved tracks formerly used by pack horses.
