Darley Dale and neighbouring Two Dales provide a wide range of local shops and amenities, Wayside is also well placed for road travel to the neighbouring market towns of Matlock and Bakewell and the cities of Sheffield, Derby and Nottingham all lie within daily commuting distance. The delights of the Derbyshire Dales and Peak District countryside are also close at hand.
