Hartington is a Derbyshire village that's one of my favourite places to pop to for a quiet wander.

Just off the A515 Ashbourne to Buxton road near Buxton, this tiny, quaint Peak District village is tucked away, but still only a few minutes off the main road. As you pass through the valley into Hartington, you'll see cattle wandering up the sides of the hills, grazing away, plus the odd cyclist trundling along the viaduct of the Tissington Trail.

As we wandered around the village on Saturday evening, there were few people around. Aside from us, a few people sat outside the two pubs enjoying a drink, a farmer passing through on his tractor, and a couple of sets of dog walkers, no-one else was about.

What is there to see and do in Hartington?


The Hartington Cheese Shop 


The Hartington Cheese Shop has been open for nearly 40 years. The creamery is situated just down the road in Pikehall. The Hartington Cheese Shop make a variety of different Derbyshire and Staffordshire cheeses (the village is close to the Derbys/Staffs border) including the Hartington Bomber.


It's worth noting that you can buy their cheese online at any time.

The Beresford Tea Rooms


The Beresford Tea Rooms is a tea rooms with a gift shop and Post Office. As you can see from the pictures, there's a fancy Victorian postbox standing proudly outside the tea rooms. It's open daily from 10am until 5:30pm.

The pond


Situated outside The Hartington Cheese Shop, the pond is a lovely place for quiet reflection. There are several benches around the pond, and it's the perfect place to pause and look around you at the gorgeous stone cottages, whilst also stuffing your face with some local cheese...

Tissington Trail


As I previously mentioned, you're right near the Tissington Trail, so that's something that you could explore if you fancy a hike or cycle. (Perhaps to burn some of the cheesy calories off?)

How to get to Hartington, Derbyshire 


As I mentioned, the village is just off the A515 road. If you're travelling by train, the nearest station is Buxton, but it is 13 miles away. 


The 442 route from High Peak Buses travels between Ashbourne and Buxton but it stops at Hartington. It currently costs £7.50 per adult for a day ticket.


If you are travelling to Hartington by car, there is a small car park situated right in the centre of the village. It's free to park there, but beware that there really aren't many spaces. If you're travelling to Hartington on a busy day, you may struggle to find somewhere to park.
