In the run-up to our official launch of Tansley Gardens, a brand-new development of exclusive stone-built houses, we’ve pulled together a selection of our favourite things to do in the local area.
Tansley is a popular village situated two miles from the town of Matlock and is renowned for its fishing lake. Known locally as part of the ‘dark peak’, it is surrounding by hay meadows, pasture lands and woodland.
Walks around Tansley
The Riber Castle Loop from Tansley is a relatively easy hike with an accessible path. It is an excellent opportunity to enjoy all the local sights the area has to offer. Suitable for all skill levels, it is around 3.5 miles and takes approximately one and a half hours.
If you’re looking for a longer walk, the Matlock War Memorial loop from Tansley is 10 miles and features some great viewing points of Matlock.
Great places to eat and drink
The Gate Inn in Tansley has the bonus of being across the road from our development! It is a family-friendly pub and restaurant, with space for dogs. Serving a range of cuisines, there is also a fine selection of local real ales.
For special occasions, Stones Restaurant in Matlock is only 1.6 miles from Tansley and is part of the Michelin Guide. It serves modern British food and has a 5-star rating on Trip Advisor.
Out and about
Matlock Farm Park is a great day out for all the family to enjoy. You can experience the farm, enjoy a pony ride and even experience go-karting!
From birthday parties to team building, an excellent activity for groups is Deception Escape Rooms in Matlock. Escape Rooms have become extremely popular in recent years, and we can see why.
If you’ve never been before, we would highly recommend Heights of Abraham. There are cable car rides with magnificent views, woodland trails and guided tours of the caverns. Our top tip: book to dine at the heights.
Tansley Gardens will feature a mixture of luxury three, four and five-bedroom homes, with 26 plots available. To register early interest, please contact our sales team on 01246 575744 or 07871 183 990.
