Located over 1000 feet above sea level at the junction of Eaton, Alsop and
Biggin Dales, Rivendale is ideal for mountain biking, rambling and walking from
trails and cycle ways leading directly from our site. The Tissington Trail
just 100 metres from our site entrance provides access to the Trails
Triangle? formed with the High Peak Trail and cycle way around Carsington
Reservoir. Footpaths from Rivendale lead into the dramatic limestone scenery
of the upper reaches of Dove Dale about 11/2 miles away.
The Peak District offers more than just outdoor activities however, with
cultural and historic sites as diverse as Chatsworth, Alton Towers, Buxton
Opera house, National Tram Museum, Richard Arkwrights Mills within the
Derwent Valley World Heritage site, Gulliver?s Kingdom, a variety of caves
and caverns, stately homes and castles, to name a few. Not to mention the
local arts festivals, well dressings, flower show, game fair and other events at
Chatsworth; even if it rains there is always something to do.
