Things to do

Horse riders are welcome to explore our network of paths in Farley and Bottom Moor (Matlock Moors) with a valid permit.

Permits can be bought by purchasing a Membership, which includes your horse riding permit plus other benefits.

The permit allows you to ride in a variety of woodlands including Wharncliffe Woods, Sherwood Pines, Blidworth Woods, Haywood Oaks and Farley and Bottom Moor (Matlock, Derbyshire).

Advice on riding in each wood can be obtained by contacting the local team.

The revenue from the permit goes back into improving our equestrian facilities and services in the above woodlands.

Walking on Matlock Moors is the perfect way to get some fresh air and explore some of the area's most beautiful landscapes.

Matlock Moors has a range of paths that run through the area.
