A nature lover's dream.

The Peak District is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful places in the world – and now you could own your very own slice of this countryside paradise.

A plot of land within the national park is currently on the market for just £40,000.

For that price, you get 29.3 acres of prime British countryside, located just a stone’s throw from arguably the most popular section of the Peak District.

The land, which boasts established woodland and far-reaching views, is just between the villages of Castleton and Edale in the Hope Valley.

Nearby, you’ll also find the iconic Mam Tor, a popular ridge walk which is often dotted with paragliders soaring overhead.


The land is also near Chapel en le Frith and within easy reach of Chesterfield and Sheffield.

But as this is proper countryside, there’s not much in the way of services – or buildings.


Still, £40,000 for almost 30 acres of unspoiled woodland seems like a fairly decent price.

The land is listed with Bagshaws, who say: “The property comprises a lovely block of 29.3 acres of well-established mature woodland located off Castleton Rd A6187.

“The woodland is generally steep sloping in nature, and occupies a prominent position within the landscape, affording far-reaching breath-taking views of the surrounding area.


“The principal tree species are Scots Pine and Larch with minor species being Oak and Ash.”

If you’re interested in viewing it, you can only do so during daylight hours, and on foot, with any vehicles lft on the highway known as Castleton Road.

There are conditions involved in the sale too – the woodland has to stay as woodland and managed for biodiversity.
