The White Peak is the lower, southern part of the Peak District in England. In contrast to the Dark Peak, the underlying limestone is not capped by impervious millstone grit, so caves and dry river valleys are common features of the area. The soils are poor and calcareous, creating grazing land for both sheep and cattle.
Broadly speaking, the White Peak covers the Staffordshire Peaks, the Cheshire Peaks around Macclesfield and the Derbyshire Peaks from the Hope Valley southwards. The White Peak is one of 159 national character areas defined by Natural England; their defined area covers an area of 52,860 hectares (204 sq mi) and includes the area approximately bounded by Buxton, Castleston, Matlock, Wirksworth and Cheadle, Staffordshire.
The Ladybower Inn is a quint stone gastro pub by the picturesque Ladybower reservoir in Derbyshire. A perfect location to walk out from and enjoy the White Peak rolling hills, dry stone walls, and famous stanage rock climbing crags. Not far from the beautiful villages of Bamford and Hathersage, this pub has seven en-suite rooms in a relaxing setting.
