How to get here: Biggin is a village off the A515 which connects Ashbourne in the south and Buxton in the north. There is a regular (if not very frequent) bus service through the village.
Nearest Town: Biggin is approximately 10-11 miles from Buxton, Ashbourne, Matlock and Leek. It is about 5 miles from Bakewell.
Biggin is in the White Peak (South) area of the National Peak Park. It is surrounded by rolling hills, dry stone walls, and a huge network of public footpaths. Our cottage is a few hundred yards from the Tissington Trail – a disused railway line which is now a wonderful walking/cycling trail going as far as Ashbourne in the south and Hurdlow in the north. It also connects with the High Peak Trail, so there is lots of potential for off-road cycling. Biggin has a popular pub and an excellent restaurant at Biggin Hall.
There is a little village grocery shop in Hartington, 2 miles away. Many of the big supermarkets can be found in the towns within 10-12 miles of Biggin (Buxton, Ashbourne, Matlock, Leek).
Local attractions include; Matlock Bath – illuminations, Dove Dale stepping stones, Alton Towers Theme Park, National Trust properties: Keddleston Hall, Eyam Hall (plague village), Lyme House Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall (not National Trust).
