How to find us

The Peak District National Park offers stunning scenery and breathtaking landscapes for you to enjoy and explore, covering 4 different counties of Staffordshire, Derbyshire, Cheshire and Yorkshire.  


The small rural parish of Tittesworth sits on the SOUTH WESTERN EDGE OF THE PEAK DISTRICT NATIONAL PARK  near the North Staffordshire/ Derbyshire border between the market towns of Leek (5 mins) and the spa town of Buxton (15 mins), Ashbourne and Macclesfield (20 mins) and with one of the most beautiful runs over the hills of the peak district to Bakewell (30 mins) with its famous Bakewell pudding - so is ideal for exploring the Peak District National Park and wider area. 

The area is  also known as the 'Staffordshire Peaks' or the 'Staffordshire Moorlands' and has excellent walking and outdoor pursuits including cycling and climbing close by.
