Beautiful Location

Hathersage is a vibrant, pretty village in the Hope Valley with a great selection of independent shops, outdoor clothing stores, bars and even a heated outdoor swimming pool! 

Surrounded by stunning countryside, carpeted with beautiful heather and overlooked by fabulous gritstone edges, Hathersage is a popular destination for those wishing to browse the shops, those enjoying a leisurely stroll, and those taking on more challenging hiking routes and outdoor activities. Some of the best Peak District walking routes start from the edge of the village, such as a hike up to Stanage Edge, which is also popular with climbers, with magnificent rewarding views. The National Trusts’ Longshaw Estate can be reached via an 8 mile circular route from the village, as can picturesque Grindleford via a 6 mile route, to name but a few. 

Cintra’s really is in the most idyllic spot to start or finish your day exploring this wonderful part of the Peak District National Park, so be sure to look out for the pretty displays of flowers at the front, and remember Hathersage’s secret – Cintra’s is so much more than your average tea rooms!
