Great place to stay in a stunning location! Would definitely stay here again. There is a small car park with a fine view down the valley, and a much larger car park, with public toilets, m away. A few hundred metres towards Ashford there is an old Quaker burial ground. To the north of Longstone lies Longstone Edge, a fine viewpoint for the surrounding countryside.

Unfortunately the top of the edge has been intensively quarried for lead and, more recently fluorspar, which has left some impressive holes in the ground but rather detracts from its scenic value. There is a public house the Devonshire Arms, naturally and on the other side of the road there is the Chatsworth Farm Shop, housed in the former Shire Horse Stud building. Pilsley has a well-dressing in mid-July. The village is in two sections - the original village lies in the 'Y' between the two rivers while to the east is the so-called 'railway village' constructed around the former Midland railway station.
The two sections form an interesting contrast - the old part is made of gritstone cottages and farmhouses and has connections with nearby Haddon and Chatsworth, while the newer part is more utilitarian.

Peacock Hotel Rowsley Two buildings in Rowsley are of interest. One is the Peacock Hotel on the main road.
Built in by a John Stevenson who was agent to Grace, Lady Manners, this was at one time a dower house of Haddon Hall and is a very fine building. Above the entrance there is a magnificent ceramic peacock the emblem of the Manners family , made by Mintons of Stoke-on-Trent. The second interesting building is Caudwell's mill, which lies off the A6 to the south, and is a fine example of a working 19th century mill. The outbuildings in the grounds of the mill house a number of different art and artisan workshops as well as an excellent cafe.
In the old village there is a Victorian church just to the north of the old railway line. Over the bridge across the Derwent there is a second pub and a small 'shopping village' behind it. Stanton Hall lies well hidden just to the south of the village, much of which is pleasingly built around stone courtyards and alleyways. The village faces west and catches the afternoon and evening sun all year. It is a fine vantage point from which to view the Wye valley, with Haddon Hall in clear view. The church is an imposing building dating from the s. The village pub is called The Flying Childers, named after an otherwise long-forgotten race-horse.
The main interest around here lies above the village on Stanton Moor, with its stone circles, standing stones and Bronze Age enclosures plus fine views across the Derwent valley. The village centre lies just off the main A road and is surprisingly secluded and quiet.
There is a small church, St Martin's, which was originally built by Joan Eyre to commemorate her husband's safe return from Agincourt in Only the tower is original, the nave having burnt down in a fire in to be replaced in by an unusual octagonal building. Nearby are some low buildings which are advertised as the 'Roman Baths', though the current building was constructed in the 19th century.
These are fed by some warm springs which issue from the hillside and historical evidence indicates that they were in use from Celtic times, probably forming the focus of a shrine to an aquatic goddess.
The earliest documented references to the springs are medieval, but numerous Roman coins have been found locally. Clustered along the main road is the former toll bar, now a fish and chip shop, a pub called The Moon and an Indian restaurant. Just above the restaurant is 'Lover's Leap' where, in the jilted Hannah Baddaley flung herself off the clifftop, only to be saved by her voluminous skirts, which acted as a parachute. Sadly she died of natural causes only two years later, still unwed.
Higher up the valley, at the foot of Middleton Dale, the scenery is dominated by Windover Buttress, home of some of the most spectacular rock climbs of the area. There are also several important pot-holes in this dale, notably Carlswark cavern. Stoney Middleton has a well-dressing in late July. The upland area to the south of Middleton Dale between Stoney Middleton and Longstone Edge has been mined extensively for Fluorspar, leaving large settling ponds full of 'tailings', and resembles a moonscape.
It is well worth a visit just to see this scene of desolation. Further south there is the open moorlands of Longstone Edge, one of the few ecologically sensitive Limestone Heaths in the area. Longstone Edge offers excellent walking and views. Main Index. Tourist Attractions. Advertise with us. Holiday Cottage Index. Holiday Cottage Search. Ashbourne Holiday Cottages.
