There are some beautiful villages around where I live, without even going into the Peak district national park. Thorpe Salvin is probably less than 4 miles away from where I live and well worth a visit. They won the Britain in Bloom contest for a number of years, I am not sure if they still enter the competition or were barred from it.
The only down side to Thorpe Salvin is that their Parish Oven Public house is temporarily closed down.
There is still some community spirit left in Thorpe Salvin, I just hope recent townies moving there don’t kill it off.
All the best
