• Local Area

Combs is a small hamlet situated between Whaley Bridge and Chapel-en-le-Frith and the beautiful spa town of Buxton. It’s positioned perfectly for those wanting to get away from it all, but still be close enough to a wide variety of activities and small bustling towns.

Combs village is sheltered by some impressive hills including Ladder Hill and Combs Edge. The lanes, byway and footpaths which encircle Ladder Hill give some very impressive views, and it is believed there is a burial mound situated on the top. To the north of the village is Eccles Pike and Combs Reservoir used by the Prince Albert Angling Society and the Combs Sailing Club. The east of the village is overshadowed by the hill fort of Castle Naze, a gritstone crag at the apex of Combs edge. Climbing up to Castle Naze or up Ladder Hill offers you a wonderful 360 of the area providing superb views across Chapel-en-le-Frith to South Head, Brown Knoll and the plateau of Kinder Scout – you can even see the ridge of Rushup Edge and the peak of Mam Tor – it’s well worth the climb.

Ladder Hill brings you out overlooking the Goyt Valley where you can see Fernilee Reservoir, Hoo Moor and the Goyt Forest. From here, you can use the many footpaths to take you down to the Goyt Valley, or continue around the hill to Combs Moss – the options for exploring are endless
