A handsome Georgian market town, this is the gateway to the limestone area of the Peak District, including Dovedale which so inspired the ultimate angler Izaak Walton. St Oswald’s Church has a magnificent, tall spire and fine monuments. The town is most famous for hosting a 1,000-year-old annual football game, held on Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday, in which two teams of up to 10,000 players chase a hand-painted cork-filled ball through the streets to the river. Tradition has it that Ashbourne is the birthplace of the ‘gingerbread man’ biscuit which was was created by a Frenchman who lived here after the Napoleonic Wars.

Nearby is the idyllic village of Tissington with its mellow-yellow stone houses. As you drive into the village you pass between a line of lime trees which give the impression you’re on a private drive. Tissington Hall is a fine Jacobean manor house that has been home to the Fitzherbert family for over 500 years. The Tissington Trail is a popular cycle route along a former railway line.
