Hope Valley, Derbyshire, United Kingdom

Peak Cavern Gorge is a popular film set location due to the immediately dramatic scenery. It is a peaceful corner of Castleton, within walking distance of all the village pubs and shops and cafes. Peak Cavern occasionally hosts events in the evening. See Peak Cavern website for details: https://peakcavern.co.uk
Wildlife enthusiasts might see several species of bat flitting about, trout in Peakshole Water (AKA The Styx) and hear Tawny Owls conversing in Spring. The nearby Peak Cavern is a Jackdaw roost, which can provide wonderful entertainment on a warm Summer's evening.
Torside is the nearest dwelling to Peak Cavern, which has the largest land based cave entrance in the British Isles and is also a SSSI. The cavern was home to one of Britain's last troglodyte communities until 1915. Peak Cavern is owned by the Duchy of Lancaster and several tours are conducted daily.

Castleton is known as a honey pot village in the Peak District National Park. It is very well equipped for visitors. There are 7 pubs that serve food and most do real ales too. There are 4 jewellery shops in the village selling the local unique precious fluorspar, crafted into beautiful jewellery and ornamental pieces. The ruins of Peveril Castle overlook the village. The surrounding landscape is beautiful, dramatic and popular with walkers. The geology of the region is very interesting, for example the Mam Tor landslip, Cave Dale and Winnats Pass.
