Longshaw is a wonderful place to discover spectacular views of the Peak District, ancient woods, parkland and heather moorland. The spectacular White Edge Moor overlooks the Derwent Valley and forms part of the long gritstone edge stretching from Stanage towards Birchens Edge south of Chatsworth House.
Our shop at Longshaw has lots of lovely gifts for you to take home including framed prints of local landscapes by Martin Decent. You can also buy Longshaw trail maps, a wide range of Peak District walking leaflets together with walking accessories, wildlife products and books.
There is also a café where you can relax and enjoy a meal or light snack.
Parking is available in the disabled car park near the National Trust Longshaw Café / Shop which is located in the visitor centre where you will also find accessible toilets.
Access conditions vary across Longshaw, with the best access around the visitor centre. Beyond the visitor centre, the terrain is variable. Padley Gorge has rough terrain, there is no wheelchair access through the woods. White Edge Moor has access to a bridleway, but features steep terrain and no disabled parking.
There is however, a lovely accessible stroll at Longshaw from the café. From here take the path which leads to the estate.After passing through a gate there are 2 options: a path leads down to a small, pretty lake where you can sit and enjoy the views. Alternatively, a favourite of Accessible Derbyshire is to take the path which goes straight ahead. This level path has great views and you can continue your walk until you eventually reach an inaccessible gate.
