Discover Derbyshire And The Peak District

Ringwood Hall Hotel is an ideal location from which to explore Derbyshire And The Peak District with so many historical and interesting attractions to consider.

Chesterfield is an historic medieval market town, featuring the world famous and unique `Crooked Spire` of St Mary & All Saints Church.

There are many historic houses of course including the iconic Chatsworth House, while Renishaw Hall & Gardens, Hardwick Hall and Bolsover Castle are very close to the hotel. The Peak District towns and villages of Matlock, Buxton, Eyam and Ashbourne are within easy travel.

For the fun seekers attractions include, Gullivers Theme Park, The National Tramway Museum, the Magna Science Adventure Centre and The Heights of Abraham are a good drive away. 

Only a very short distance from Ringwood Hall Hotel is Barrow Hill Roundhouse Railway Centre, well worth a visit. Or take the family to the fantastic new centre at Creswell Crags, only 20 minutes drive and visit the caves where our distant ancestors lived amongst the beasts of the Ice Age.

Shoppers will love the `Meadowhall` Mall in Sheffield, the East Midland Designer Outlet at Jnct 28 of the M1 ( towards Mansfield ), and there are large shopping centres in Derby & Nottingham.
