It’s the perfect time to get out and stretch your legs on a refreshing winter walk with the National Trust. You can admire the views from the rolling parkland on the Hardwick estate, take a peaceful stroll around the lake in the pleasure grounds at Clumber Park, breath in the scents of the forest in the woodland at Longshaw, or challenge yourself to explore the wider wild Peak District and witness some breath-taking scenery.
Wrap up warm and reward yourself with a hot drink and tasty bite afterwards, where every sip and bite taken supports all the National Trust’s winter conservation work across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. There's a walk here for you whether you are looking for adventure, or a gentle stroll with family.
Clumber Park, Nottinghamshire:
Clumber Park is the perfect walking backdrop all year round. With 3,800 acres of natural woodland and heathland there’s so much to explore, whether you choose to wander around the Clumber lake and much-loved parkland or embrace a longer adventure further afield. Hidden gems are aplenty whichever route you choose.
Wrap up warm and head out into the park at Hardwick for fresh air and wintery landscapes away from the seasonal hustle and bustle. Explore Bess’ grounds, choose a trail around the wider estate or wander through the scenic landscape garden. The Duke and Duchess short walk is great for young families and gives a glimpse of the atmospheric woodland and ancient park that Hardwick has to offer.
Longshaw, Burbage and the Eastern Moors, Derbyshire:
Bracing winter walks to blow the cobwebs away can be discovered when exploring Longshaw, Burbage and the Eastern Moors. Be rewarded with quiet landscapes and cool, crisp air to leave you feeling inspired and energised. Whether you choose to join one of our guided walks on Wednesdays and Sundays or choose to venture out on your own, feel the serenity of this beautiful setting.
Kinder, Edale and the Dark Peak, Derbyshire:
The footpaths and bridleways across Kinder, Edale and the Dark Peak can make an exhilarating day out, whatever the weather. Be inspired by views across the valleys and if you are lucky you may spot a mountain hare in their winter coat. Download one of our walking or cycling routes or work out your own using an Ordnance Survey map for the Dark Peak (OL1). We recommend stopping in at our friends at The Penny Pot café, located near to Edale train station, for delicious food and warming drinks.
