The colourful Goyt Valley is worth a visit at any time of year. In spring the Rhodenendrons around the ruins of Errwood Hall make a fantastic display. In late summer the flowering heather on the moorland brings purple hues to the valley before the burst of autumnal colour from the valley woodland.
There are several walking routes around the valley and links to longer walks within the Peak District.
Fly fishing and sailing on Errwood Reserovir, provides quiet enjoyment of the water.
