Carsington Water . Ashbourne . Derbyshire
Being on the edge of the Peak District National Park, Carsington Water is ideally situated to numerous camping sites, other types of accommodation and activities.
We are very close to a number of tourist attractions ranging from Alton Towers to Dovedale.
The area is ideal for walking being situated close to the Tissington and High Peak Trails, which also cater for cyclists.
An Autumn visitor should not miss the Matlock Bath illuminations, which goes back to Victorian times.
Visiting Matlock Bath you cannot fail to see the large limestone rock of High Tor, which often has rock climbers on it.
Should you wish to see the view there is also the option to walk up on narrow walkway, or else cheat and take the car to the top !!
The water itself has a visitor centre with shops and cycle hire, and is surrounded by a picturesque 8 1/2 mile walk / cycle path on surfaced pathways.
