Restored buildings set for reopening

VISITORS to the Peak District will be able to check out the newly-renovated Stableyard buildings at the National Trust’s Hardwick Estate from the start of next month.

The £6.5 million project, which has been under development for the past seven years, has involved the refurbishment and transformation of a collection of disused estate buildings into the vibrant hub of Hardwick.

The new facilities will be open daily, providing the property’s visitors with a warm welcome throughout the seasons. New artwork has been developed to celebrate the opening.

The Great Barn, once the centre of agricultural activity on the Hardwick Estate, has been converted into a contemporary two-storey restaurant.
