With the Peak District on your doorstep, there are an abundance of scenic walks to enjoy. For the thrill-seekers, you can abseil off the Millers Dale Bridge, which is just a five minute drive from The Star. For those less adventurous, you can take a relaxing walk through the village of Taddington. As one of England’s highest villages, a stroll through town allows you to take in the picturesque scenery and take a well-earned break from everyday life.
A trip to the Peak District wouldn’t be complete without a country pub. Traditional pub food and a large variety of drinks are on offer at The Queens Arms, a five minute walk from your accommodation.
The Star is situated between the towns of Bakewell and Buxton, both of which are highly recommended to visit. Buxton is surrounded on three sides by the Peak District National Park, the oldest National Park in the country. Activities in Buxton include Go Ape and two golf courses to choose from. As well as it’s famous tart, the town of Bakewell has a lot to offer. The biggest town in the Peak District, there is both a Farmers’ Market and independent shops here where you can sample the local produce. Thornbridge Brewery is also a perfect place for your group to try out amazing craft beers.
