Darley Dale - About the Area

Darley Dale has a broad range of amenities for both residents and visitors. Its close proximity to both the countryside and the main commerce centres of the region benefits the town's residents as well as its businesses and incoming tourists. Darley Dale has a mixture of buildings ranging from old cottages to new, modern housing forming a development along the A6 road.


With a strong community spirit, it offers something for everyone, from nurseries to Over 60s clubs. It has a range of restaurants and pubs as well as several community halls and there is always some activity to attend.


Businesses, too, find the area convenient. Situated on the main A6 trunk road, Darley Dale is within easy reach of the M1 motorway and only a few minutes from Matlock Railway Station. This gives it the benefit of offering the convenience of a central location without the higher overheads and congestion of a larger town or city.
