Derbyshire delights in Dovedale
Dovedale is one of the highlights of the Peak District. This is a beautiful valley, where the River Dove has carved through the limestone plateau to create the stunning scenery seen today. This walk can be done in one day, but the best way to enjoy the gorge is to take two days. Start in Hartington, which is well served by buses, and finish up in Ilam or Thorpe (there are more regular buses from Thorpe). The overnight stop is in Alstonefield, which has lots of places to stay.
