“There are great paths around the Harewood estate (outside of the “need-to-pay” boundaries). You can park in the village hall car park where there’s an honesty box, or just down that little road (the road on the right before you get to the lights that used to have a little sofa / upholstery shop on the corner) then walk down the main path into the estate. Amazing views and very buggy-friendly – can do quite a good big circuit”.

Recommendation from our facebook Mumbler chat group.

Monsal Trail: Peak District

The Monsal Trail is a traffic free route for walkers, cyclists, horse riders and wheelchair users through some of the Peak District’s most spectacular limestone dales.

The trail runs along the former Midland Railway line for 8.5 miles between Blackwell Mill, in Chee Dale and Coombs Road, at Bakewell.

It was recommended to us by Mumblers in the Doncaster Mumbler Parents Chat Group as a good place to take my mini mumbler, who needed a good route to practice and build up his confidence on his bike.

We went in September 2020 and parked at Hassop Station (you need to pay for parking – they do take card), where there was a cafe, toilet facilities, bike hire and a play area – see a map of the Monsal Trail here 

Using this as our start and finish, we cycled along the former railway line with amazing views along the way and it was a lovely straight path to cycle on. Perfect for a family bike ride and there were places to pull off the track and have a picnic, which we did.  Cycling through the tunnels was a novelty and there is lighting in the tunnels (the lights operate dawn to dusk and in the winter switch off around 4.30pm).

My youngest, age 6 managed to cycle around 8 miles, heading back to Hassop Station after we went through the Headstone Tunnel and we rewarded ourselves with some delicious ice cream whilst we waited for my daughter and husband doing the extra stretch – they cycled 14 miles-ish and my 8 year old loved it…she was very tired though!

We can really recommend it, whether you’re cycling or walking.

Fully accessible nature paths let you explore a stunning, safe wetland habitat which is fabulous for bird watching. We have visited in all seasons – with wellies on if the weather isn’t great, although visiting in the sunshine is really lovely. We often go in the summer holidays. The trails are popular with my children, so they like the fact that they can spot birds or ducks and tick them off on a trail sheet. They also love looking out for some of the wooden carved creatures along the way, plus there was a little den right at the end that they played in for ages!  Potteric Carr hosts a wonderul variety of events from Forest Tots (forest play for pre schoolers) to arts and craft sessions during the school holidays. The cafe is great too.

We did the blue route on our last visit and saw sheep, cows, fish, goats, and an alpaca as well as birds and ducks!
