Sitting where the River Noe meets the Peakshole Water, is the stunning Peak District village of Hope. Often overlooked in favour of the famous nearby town of Castleton, this Derbyshire village is a larger but more tranquil destination that still offers plenty to discover.
Take a trip to the fascinating ruins of Peveril Castle that sit a 5-minute drive from Hope above the village of Castleton. There is plenty of history to take in at the castle, being one of England’s earliest Norman fortresses and the keep is even known to have been constructed by Henry II.
Another 5-minute car ride will take you to one of the famous Peak District caves, Treak Cavern. Take in the enchanting atmosphere inside this beautiful rock formation that is one of the only two manufacturers of Blue John stone in the world.
Equally convenient to the town, is another incredible cave called Speedwell Cavern which is commonly known as “The Devil’s Arse” as a result of the flatulent-like sounds which can be heard inside its walls. Expect to descend 106 steps to what feels like a mystical underworld before venturing on an underground boat journey through the cave system.
While most villages in the Peak District are not short of beautiful places to trek, Hope village is not far from the most famous walk in the Peak District, Mam Tor. Easily accessed from the town by foot or car, a hike up this hill provides dramatic views over all of the Peak District.
There is a fantastic range of coffee shops, restaurants and pubs in Hope so why not take a culinary tour of the village? You will be impressed with the high-quality range of food that the remote area has to offer including pretty little tea rooms, bustling bistros and traditional English pubs.
Hope Valley is also a perfect place to take your bike to explore the moorland landscapes on two wheels. There are plenty of different routes to choose from that will cater to varying abilities so you won’t feel out of your depth and will be free to appreciate the beauty in the surrounding landscapes.
While the sun can never be guaranteed, it would be best to try to visit Hope village when the weather is likely to be its mildest to make the most of the stunning natural scenery around the town. As a result, it is a good idea to visit between June and September to give yourself the best chance of good weather.
