Visitor Information

Hartington is a delightful rural village with a rich and varied history and arguably some of the best walking routes in the White Peak, right on it’s doorstep.

In 1203 it was the first village to be granted a Market Charter by William De Ferres and subsequently became a central hub for many of the surrounding farms and hamlets.

The village centre forms a triangle with a mere at the northern end and is surrounded by historic buildings including the Charles Cotton Hotel (previously known as the Sleigh Arms), The Devonshire Arms and the “Pillars”, now referred to as the Village Stores.
