There are so many things to do in The Peak District, but why not use our outdoor gym and explore our special scenic landscape by following the new Peak District Boundary walk?At Hoe Grange Holidays we have long been supporters of Friends of The Peak District. This active charitable organisation supports local communities, champions renewable energies to help tackle climate change, campaigns to safeguard and also helps to maintain the unique landscapes of Britain’s first national park.
Don't worry if you think 190 miles is too much of a challenge, the walk has been split into smaller stages so you don't have to tackle it all in one go!
The Peak District Boundary Walk passes through stunning scenery, stretching from the moorland tops of the South Pennines to the gentle limestone scenery of the Derbyshire Dales near Hoe Grange. The route touches the urban edges of Sheffield and Oldham, as well as Staffordshire's rugged moorland and the undulating slopes of Cheshire.
The Peak District Boundary Walk follows existing footpaths, tracks, quiet lanes, former railway lines and a canal towpath, but it is the variety of vistas that makes experience extra special. What could be better than keeping fit by using the outdoor gym!
Hoe Grange Farm is situated right on the Peak Park boundary so the walk goes right past our door, along The High Peak Trail. If staying with us in one of our cosy log cabins or our gorgeous glamping pods for two, you can easily walk over our fields to pick up one of two sections of The Peak District Boundary Walk. Either Royston Grange to Winster (stage 13) or Royston through Parwich to Thorpe (stage 14).
Royston is one of my favourite walks as you pass through the steep beautiful limestone valley, surrounded by nothing but rocky pastures full of wild flowers, fluttering butterflies, hawthorn trees silhouetted against the skyline, buzzards circling overhead, and the odd sheep or cow.
You can check out the individual stages of The Boundary Walk or buy the complete book which features all 20 walks.
Friends of the Peak District are now part of CPRE Peak District and South Yorkshire and campaign for a living, working countryside that changes with time but remains beautiful for ever. Their aim is to ensure the balance is kept between a vibrant, sustainable rural economy and protecting the outstanding Peak District countryside.
They hope this new boundary walk will increase awareness of the beautiful Peak District landscape and encourage people to cherish and protect it.
