My wife and I, after having visited Buxton, travelled to the Goyt Valley. We very much admired the unique scenery of hills, reservoirs and moorland. And on the way to Kettleshulme we stopped to watch rock climbers ascending the “Windgather Rocks” We loved every minute...More

Wonderful, unspoilt countryside. Walked uphill and down to the stunning reservoir. Paddled in ice cold streams...Wonderful feeling getting boots and socks off mid walk in the scorching heat this weekend. The walk back uphill before descent back into Burbage is lengthy trudge and requires above...More

A quiet, pretty corner of the Peak District, easily accessible from the Buxton honeypot. The valley is dominated by two reservoirs, Errwood and Fernilee. We had an enjoyable walk round the latter. Good paths and pleasant views. Free parking nearby.

Travelling through the Peak District, came across the impressive natural Goyt Valley with the River Goyt flowing through. Parts of the valley are gentle flowing through rolling countryside, whilst other cut through steep ravines and gorges. Only wish i'd of had time to explore further!

Had a lovely walk around the reservoirs (about 5 miles) which was in the glorious sunshine. Did get muddy/marshy but nothing to put us off. Recommend it!

I am lucky enough to live nearby to come here with my dogs regularly. There are so many different routes to walk you are spoilt for choice. The walks around the reservoirs are lovely but can get busy during the summer months. There are some...More

We did the 4 mile walk, about 2 hours, with our 3 teenagers. It was quite cold, abit breezy and kept threatening to rain but none of that got in the way of a lovely walk with great views that seemed to keep the teenagers...More
