Truth be known, is that the Peak forest is not far from being the centre of England and as such, is generally between one – one and a half hours drive from most of the major towns and cities in the midlands and North West, including, Manchester, Sheffield, Nottingham, Doncaster, & Chesterfield.

The closest supermarket is the recently refurbished CoOp approximately 5 Minutes drive from The Gables in Tideswell which is open until 10pm.

Chapel-en-le-Frith, is approximately 10 Minutes drive and in our view is a very understated, pretty little town which also has some lovely walks around the adjacent Combs reservoir.

Approximately 25 Minutes drive away, is the very popular tourist destinations of Bakewell and the spa town of Buxton. Both towns have an impressive range of independent outlets, as well as the big players.

Some of the nearer national chain stores are listed below.
