Valley View : Activities

The UK’s best-loved theme park is within half an hour's drive from our holiday home in Milldale.  There’s a mind boggling mix of thrill and family rides, a water park, the new Sharkbait Reef by Sea Life as well as plenty of restaurants and a relaxing sunken garden area to escape the crowds.  Why not stay at Valley View holiday accommodation and have the best of both worlds with an exciting day out at Alton Towers, whilst staying in the glorious Peak District countryside?

There are so many walks from Valley View holiday accommodation it is hard to know where to start.  Of course a walk along the river Dove is a must as is a hop and a skip over the famous stepping stones.  The walks in Dovedale are reasonably flat and suitable for all family members. 

We recommend the following websites for more detailed description of the many walks right from the door of our holiday accommodation:

Caving with Peak Instruction offer caving courses in the Peak District. Access to a number of courses is available giving a range of options. The courses are relaxed and run to suit the people who are there. Courses are run for a range of abilities and trips for wheelchair users or people with mobility difficulties can be organised. Under 18s must be accommpanied by an adult.  Where possible the courses are photographed and filmed and tea and coffee are supplied after the trip!  www.peakinstruction.com

There are places to go in the Peak District for some of the best trout fishing and scenery in the country.

  • The Derwent Reservoir at Ladybower is the only water in England where you can get a day ticket to fish for true wild brown trout.
  • The Monsal Dale River is famous for its unique strain of breeding Rainbow Trout and fly fishing only is available. Tickets must be purchased in advance.
  • Carsington Water fishing season runs from March to October each year and is predominantly a brown trout fishery with bank and boat fishing.
