Staying with us this summer? Experience the unique local tradition of Well Dressing

Well Dressing is said to have been brought to the area by the Romans or the Celts and has been practised in the same way it is today since the 1800s. The tradition is kept alive by dedicated groups of volunteers and consists of wells being decorated in designs lovingly crafted by hand, using petals, clay and coffee beans, amongst other items. You can view these stunning displays and experience a slice of authentic local culture from May to September. It’s a great chance to explore some of the Peak Districts’ most picturesque towns and villages.
