Things to Do

Yeldersley Hall may nestle in rural countryside, but there are many nearby towns and villages, tourist attractions, and food & drink destinations with a great deal to offer.

The Local Area

Just 2.7 miles away is Ashbourne, one of Derbyshire’s finest old market towns, combining a medieval street pattern and historic buildings with a wealth of high quality shops. Here you will find a cobbled market square, hidden alleys and yards that are a delight to explore. In addition ‘Church Street’ in Ashbourne is considered to be the finest street of Georgian buildings in Derbyshire.

As well as Ashbourne, Tissington, Osmaston, Hartington, Bakewell, Buxton are all within close proximity and are well worth a visit. Local events of interest include:

Royal Shrovetide Football

Dovedale Dash

Ashbourne Show

Yeldersley Hall Open Gardens

We normally run a charity open gardens day around the third Sunday in May with maypole dancing, a wind band and cream teas (very English!)

A Walker's Paradise

Yeldersley Hall is also ideally situated for exploring Derbyshire and the Peak District, where you can discover a spectacular landscape in one of the most beautiful & inspiring parts of the British Isles.

If walking is your thing, why not consider exploring Dovedale, Manifold valley, Lathkill Dale or the Tissington Trail?
